OH yes i cannot wait for the Wii.  Not only will it be inexpensive, but finally someone has done something new and it doesnt need great graphics to be awsome.  Oh and its cheap

EDIT: There will be no price drop for the 360 at christmas time unless PS3 starts to dominate immediatly, which just wont happen because no one can afford the freakin thing.

The Wii will be takeing over the market.


X360 was a miserable failure for microsoft, which still to this day has'nt yieled any income to the company. They lose money with that thing, that's why you dont have customer support.

The PS3, is just rediculous. End of story.




And PC's will never be phased out, PC's up until this point have always been the innovaters and will continue to do so. The Wii may be the only exception, as nintendo is blowing the gaskets off of everything.



The Wii will just be priceless fun, will cost under 250$, and be able to fit in a cargo pocket. Nintendo is going to kill their competitors.

Microsoft lost money on every original xbox made too. They just have the bankroll to support it. Sony on the other hand has gone way down and by the sounds of it, the PS3 will either kill sony, or save it completely. I know I've mentioned it before, but pick up this months copy of wired (pink cover with Beck on it) and read the article on the PS3.


   I still love nintendo though. My roommate and I just picked up a gamecube for $70 CDN, so thats $31 USD each. The cube is tiny for a console, and yeah, the graphics may not be "ZOMG AMAZING" but they're pretty damn good still, and its so much fun its rediculous.
   One of the games we bought is Super Mario Strikers (the soccer game) and it is so simple, so straight forward, no story, average graphics...and its probably my favorite game right now. And the games we bought will work on the Wii, so no loss their either.

Nintendo isnt out to compete with sony or microsoft in terms of "wow, blu-ray!" "yeah, well, x-treeeem Hi-Def!!!" etc...they're focusing on fun, and it's easier to afford at the same time.

Wii ftw


*EDIT*

You can read the Wired article here:

Wii will dominate.

Cheap and fun. The only thing that could effect it would be Sony drasticly dropping the price of the PS3.

Besides the Wii, not to mention the Gamecube, had better games than Sony and Microsoft had to offer.

God help us if the flagship game for the PS3 is a WWII FPS...

It's not suppose to yield income in the short run. Microsoft loses money on every Xbox sold as Sony will with every Ps3. They get money from the games. If it was a miserable failure, why would they continue to back it when they could walk away right now with minimal loss?

Because they are microsoft? When have they EVER pulled something that was a failure, that would admit that there are other betters things.

Microsoft pulls failed products and initiatives all the time.  We have all just forgotten their failures because of their many successes.

hmmm good point.



I still say the x360 is a failure, on the grounds that the Wii will beat the pants off it in consumer sales.

Saying the 360 is a failure because it hasn't yielded any profit is ignorant.  Nearly every console ever made loses money.  They make up for that in game sells.

Well, there is really only one other mainsteam company that comes to mind Stealth, Sega. And they only failed because of bad marketing of the Dreamcast, not because they were losing money on each console. It was also a little ahead of it's time.

Sega lasted a while. Atari didnt do bad until Nintendo entered the scene and then they lost.
