    They justify it by releasing a new Zelda, SSB, Metroid, and Mario game every 3 months for 5 years. >________________________>

    It'll be like episodic content. Only not.

    I'll still be getting a Wii as well as PS3 because of White Knight, but then it'll probably end up like my 360 and not get used a lot after the first week or two. :/

    I like this topic. Although I will probably own all 3 consoles eventually I don't see the Wii being as hot as everyone said it is, the controller seems super gimmicky and the only things selling it are the titles (which have sold previous nintendo consoles). 360 seems like the winner but somehow I doubt people will buy it just for the fact they hate MS/Xbox

    Only fanboys would hate it
    It shouldnt matter the brand of the system as long as it delivers high quality content. A large amount of AZNs(no offense to anyone) are PS fanboys, which is why it dominated the last console war, XBOX sales were pretty good in America and other areas but beyond bombed in Japan.

    Gamecube was a bad system because
    1 - They mostly only had cult classics
    2 - A Nintendo mascot had to be in everything nearly
    3 - It had low 3rd party support
    4 - All the games seemed childish

    Wii I see it being the same as the Gamecube but with the nunchuk gimmick.
    Gimmicks sell, the whole point of a gimmick is to stand out from the crowd and its doing an insanely great job.

    Ill admit two things
    I am a FF fanboy
    I am a SSB fanboy

    I'll admit that I'm a Nintendo fanboy to some extent. However, I agree with Jyuu on this. $250 is a lot. Hardware's practically the same as the GCN + new controller. You can get a GCN with Mario Kart DD for $99 (or maybe even less) since over a year. Wiimote/Nunchuck is $60. In other words, $159 in total. Now I can agree that the Wii has slightly better hardware, WiiOnline24, etc., but another $90 for those "minor" features?

    And then Reggie being all happy that they're making a profit on every console sold? Sorry Nintendo, but having a price higher than expected, expensive costs for extra controllers, no classic controller in package, no DVD, release later than expected and then saying in our faces that you're deliberately asking a price that you make a profit on, while Sony and Microsoft make losses (to keep the costs of their consoles down and thus, benefit the consumer) on their products?

    How on earth can they still claim that the Wii is a console for non-gamers (price too high), multiplayer fun (no extra controllers, high price) and classic gamers (no classic controller)?

    A company is formed to make profits

    Xbox M$ and PS3 Sony both have a huge amount of business outside the video game industry unlike Wii

    We cant hate them for desiring to make profits

    when I said gimmick, I mean it like it's a gimmick that will help sales, but not help the actual console. I would like to use the wiimote sometimes and not just stick to a normal controller, because the wiimote is the only thing that makes the wii stand out, otherwise it's just another GC, and that only had like 4-5 games I really enjoyed

    Just thought that this might be relevant in some way.

    I tried to approach with more general prespective but that's more accurate or I can say that's my reason I still hang on with nintendo.

    might i mention that 95% EVERY single good game on xbox (and 360) involves guns somehow... maybe just maybe, all the gun loving pseudo manbeef loving tough-as-nails admiring people in the world could stop complaining about some other company trying to introduce something different without trampling it at every chance??? i work in the electronics department and i see with my own two eyes that out of 40 different games we sell only EIGHT dont have to do with guns or sports...embarassing...sure 360 is a nice peice of ass with a few good games but nothing is truly new or original about it, one new planet with one new gun and one new take-no-shit hero i mean come on. i just described the last 5 games to get hype on xbox/360: halo, bioshock, GRAW, lost planet, crysis...etc. oh wow assassins creed is on 360... AND PC... AND PS3... i dont even know why they streamlined the controller on 360, shoulda just packaged it with a lightgun.so please, when xbox gets a respectable library of games that dont have to do with overmuscled metrosexuals blasting the bejezzuzz out of everything or pigskin (we'll leave out the other 5% of the games being open ended adventure games aka "GTA Clones"). then come and talk about how other companies justify their projects...

    id like to point out for the record that this opinion in no way has anything to do with nintendo or sony, just the annoyance i have for people who praise a system and trash others when said system has but 2 genres of games
