Just to be fair, Toshiba threw tons of money for studios to be on their side as well.

Thats true. HD was a great format I might add, it paved the way to what is now Blu Ray.

i'd hardly consider myself a "fanboy." i bought a ps3 over an xbox 360 'cause i'm used to the controller and it had a blu-ray. that's it, no other reasons.

the Wii thing is a gimick. the ps3 sixaxis controller is also motion-censored, only with considerably better graphics than that of the Wii.

i honestly see the wii becoming more of a kids/drunken college students system, while the 360 and ps3 are for the more advanced gamer. if the wii does continue to sell like this, i could honestly care less. i'm not some uberdork that takes offense if the system i prefer doesn't sell the most. people who do are kinda pathetic.

I wasn't calling you a fanboy. I don't think I've met any hugely obsessed gamers on Interference, I go to another board for that. Just saying that there are PS3/360 fanboys that still believe the Wii is a "fad" despite it's success not slowing down, even to the point where people accuse Nintendo of manufactured shortages while selling over 1mil+ units a month. They did this same act when the DS started to beat the PSP and never looked back. "touch screens are a gimmick." "zomg teh grafiX r gonna be outdated" And we all know how that turned out. The same people say too about the Wii being for little kids or casuals. Just at the end of this past year the average Wii owner's age was 29, and the system had a higher attatch ratio of games than the PS2 did at this same period in it's lifespan. It's unfair to call something like this a gimmick so soon into the generation. It's not Tickle Me Elmo, this thing is still going strong and will only get stronger this year with Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and even Wii Fit. People are so used to Kidtendo being in last place that it's hard for some to believe they might (and by the looks of it, will) end up in 1st when this generation is ready to close.

As for the Sixaxis. Yeah if you consider no force feedback, no optical sensor meaning not true full 3D interaction/movement along the XYZ planes, the same as a Wii Remote's capabilities... err ok then. I'll ignore the other things that don't even have to do with motion like no internal memory, no speaker, lack of rumble (until Dual Shock 3), and an almost double battery life.

great... for you and your wii.

i haven't done any research on the wii's longterm viability. i do have a job and a social life.

however, i have played the wii quite a few times. it was awesome at first, and got tiresome after a dozen or so times playing it. when you're playing with a group of people at a party or something, fun times. when you're sitting at home playing wii tennis by yourself, it all seems rather sad and you should probably get out more.
