This is a ridiculous conversation. Wii isn't even competing with the PS3, it's not in the same market. Most of you treat it like it is though. You all say you aren't fanboys but you are; do you really think Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo cares which one you pick? They all play off of each other to boost sales, they are all very rich and you are all argueing for nothing. A better thing to argue about is the developing companies, they are the ones that get fucked around and lose money.
thinking is like pong, it's easy, but you miss sometimes.
I love that, "wii tries too hard to be cool". I think an expert marketing department and boomiing sales figures argue and tell us that, in fact, the Wii is 'cool' regardless of one person's opinion. If anything, it's that same sort of trying to be cool marketing, utilised by sony when they first marketted the Playstation, that nintendo fanboys were complaining about when nintendo was behind.
Liquixcat is right though, it's a perfectly choreographed corporate squaredance, you just have to sit back and look at it with cynical eyes.
not if you configured it properly. I had a VB for years and it never once gave me a headache. I had one of those headsets that you could hook up to a computer, tv, or whatever. That thing DID give me headaches, mostly because it was ungodly bright.
I think it's a great console, but it's not worth this price. This isn't a matter of opinion - I'm talking about the margin between what it costs to make and what Nintendo are selling it for; it's considerably greater than it was for the Gamecube.
Don't. He will probably find a way to gain access to your pc and then spread millions of micro viruses into your operative system so he could get all your private info like bank access code and the color of your pants.
