They should also mention that there will be a shortage of quality software for the Wii. My Wii is gathering dust and while Miyamota f*#ks around making games like Wii Music it will continue to do so.

The Limey: Amen. My Wii is no longer white. It's beige. Pretty soon my PS3 will be a lighter color than the Wii :p

If you guys are obviously not interested in the Wii then why bother with a Wii specific topic?

Does everyone here jump to the chance to put down on console while mentioning another? =/

Xenos: We can speak from experience. Can you??? Go crusade somewhere else. The Wii gets no love here :p

If it makes you feel any better my PS3 is collecting so much dust I gave away my Home beta code as soon as I got it, and my 360 just got sent off for repair. So I don't game at all. I'm almost too busy to even log on to this site.

Also I am the only one that mentioned another console. So go ahead and complain to me if you have issues with it.

All that from a couple questions?

Not crusading about anthing, just figured i would ask.

I don't know why your situation about your ps3 and 360 would make me feel better, but eh I really don't care.

If you guys wish to waste your time on matters that interests you little, then by all means go ahead. I just figure that someone who is so busy would have better things to do with what little free time he has.

Xenos: "If you guys are obviously not interested in the Wii then why bother with a Wii specific topic?"

Exactly what did your question have to add to this topic anyways? Pot meet kettle. I swear go act better than thou elsewhere please. At least we managed to complain about the Wii which was the part of the topic right?

FYI I am interesed in the Wii. It's why I allowed my wife to get one. But at the same time I am very disappointed in the games for it. Like I said I speak from experience. Last time I checked the Wii was vaporware for you.

Looks like Nintendo is still going pretty strong. Should be a pretty solid holiday season for all companies, even amidst the threat of a recession.

shhhh pretend it dont exist and youll be grand

Pot meet kettle? What exactly is the pot supposed to be? Are you really that insulted by a simple question and comment? I'm not bashing or complaining about anything, I'm just a curious person is all.

You don't need to explain anything to anyone pertaining to your interest of the Wii, I was just baffled that people who can care less about the Wii put effort in posting about it. The topic wasn't complaining about the Wii, it was just informing to expect further shortages.

How am I "act better than thou" by just asking some question? I don't think I'm better than anyone, well no better than you and a few select others that I consider to be good people, so I apologize if I gave off that impression.

On topic, I kind of wish the sales of the Wii slowed down so Ninty would drop the price.

My biggest complaint about the Wii, more than anything else is the price. It's too expensive. They drop to a more reasonable $129 price point, I'd buy one, mainly for the old school games (Castlevanias especially).

price i relative to a gamers expectations, and why would ninty drop the price??????
Written by Xenos on 2008/11/24

The value in price should be measured by how much potential fun you can have with the product, not by the guts inside the system.

Since I can think of more games I would get specifically for the Wii than I would specifically for the ps3, $250 looks a whole lot better of a deal than the $400 for another system that does the same thing as my current system.

If castlevania would be the only game you'd be interested in Victus, than I can understand your reasoning, but price is hardly a real issue for the system.
Written by VaeVictus on 2008/11/24

That's why I said it was "my" biggest complaint about the system. When I bought the PS3, it was too expensive, though I'm glad I got one with my PS2 hardware to some extent b/c I enjoy revisiting my Legacy of Kain, God of War and Half Life 1 games from time to time. However, I was getting new technology, and I have used the blu ray player aspect of it quite a bit.

The Wii just does nothing that warrants the price. The software offering doesn't appeal to my taste in games and the multiplatform games are just not worth my time. Outside of maybe Zelda, Mad World and Conduit, I just don't see the software that pushes out 30 million Wii's.

$129 price point, I'd be all over it just for my desire to play some old school Castlevania (specifically Dracula's Curse).
Written by Xenos on 2008/11/24

i know that's why you said "my", that's why I said that I can see your reasoning e.i. your PoV lol

Is my typing off or something?? =p

off topic: how's that hang over victus?
Written by VaeVictus on 2008/11/24

I'm feeling fine. @ 3:00 this morning, not so much. Now, I'm gold. I was a rambling fool last night.
Written by Xenos on 2008/11/24

It was great, you should get on drunk more often, I was cracking up.
Written by VaeVictus on 2008/11/24

I dj'd my best friend's sister's wedding. My best friend's wife convinced me that since I was dj'ing for free, I should take advantage of the open bar. I did, and had a blast afterwards. It's too bad we couldn't keep a game going last night.

Yeah, hopefully they fix that shit soon, so we can actually get some games going on.
