How funny ,some fanboys trying to convince themselves the Wii is inheriting the PS2 throne .Be real men ,the Wii wont rock the gaming world .Its games wont go any further than they already have and the support it gets in this technology driven business wont be much more than what it already gets .NIntendo games ,minigames ,shovelware ,some middle to low budget japanese games and quick cash ins .I have been hearing you all the year having orgasms out of enyoyment about Wii sales but I continue to see the same thing in the industry ;the big games go to PS3-360-PC and the cheapo spin-offs or quick cash-ins go to the Wii .
Translation to the non-real men, ie, children, female teenagers, young adult females, mothers, middle aged and older, not to mention the alternative life styles, plus those that can't afford the higher prices, (ie, about what 85% of the potential gaming population?):
If you want games that Diomedes likes, buy the PS3, X360 or buy them for your PC. If you want different quirky games that are fun for you (which you seem to want right now), buy the Wii.
Oh, and Nintendo doesn't want the status of the PS2. It wants the status of a PS1 or better. That is, the game console that made the most money, since the PS1 made over 100B yen more in its main years than the PS2 did.
