i understand what Nintendo is trying to accomplish with the Wii. i'm not all for that Wii-mote controller, but i applaud Nintendo for trying to innovate. what bothers me is, why couldn't they have done that on TRUE next gen hardware? why re-sell the Gamecube with a new controller? it just doesn't make sense to me. and what bothers me even more is that they are selling it for $250. that's exactly like walking to your local game store and buying a Gamecube for $250. Nintendo is riping off consumers and getting away with it. and the Wii-mote just seems too gimicky for me. i'll pass and just stick with my 360 for now. and as far as their fans go, i don't mean to hate or anything, but everyone seems to be buying the Wii just for Zelda. ONE GAME. and Nintendo always gets away with this. you get your one Zelda game, Metroid game, and Smash Bros game and their fans flock to it in massive numbers. after you get done playing Zelda: Twilight Princess, then what? you're left waiting for the next Metroid and Smash Bros. All of their launch games looks like it gets boring pretty quick after a while. Wii sports looks like it gets boring after a while, especially if you don't have a lot of people to play with. and i honestly don't think that out dated hardware can last past 3 years in this generation. anyone feel free to chime with your thoughts.
