Okay, I admit that the name is kind of dumb, and I much preferred “Revolution”, but the Wii is starting to grow on me. So far I really like how small it is, the colours it comes in, and also the reviews of the system are pretty impressive. It will also be much cheaper than buying a PS3. I just hope the Wii will have a large game selection. That’s where the Gamecube falls flat.
Well it depends if by larger you mean: a gigantic pool of NES/SNES/N64/Genesis/TurboGraph
But yeah, although the price hasn’t been “official” yet, they did say the max would be $250..so the less the better, but at that price, you’re not going to “loose” much if there’s not that many games for it.
As far as game selection…since the N64 platform, Nintendo seems to have a real problem providing a wide selection of games, not to mention releasing games on time or even on the promised platform. If you’re hoping for a large game selection, I think you’ll be disappointed. However, it’s pretty much guaranteed that the available games will be truly great.
I think the Wii is gonna be great! I think the controller is awesome, really why do you need 2 hands to play a game. I think the idea of a one handed controller is great. I think that they need to make sure there are plenty of games you don’t need to jump around to play. Women and children won’t mind it so much, but most grown men won’t want to jump around and flail their arms to play a game.
