Re: Nintendo hates core gamers!
Sony has been my #1 pick since the original Playstation but I've always had a sweet spot for Nintendo as well. The NES, SNES and N64 were all amazing systems and the Gamecube was a deadly little system that just never had the support it needed to survive against Sony and Microsoft. I never bought a Wii because I knew I'd never be able to get into the gimmick of “moving around” to play a game. However, a gimmick is what Nintendo needed in order to take back their crown and I don't really blame them for taking the gamble. If the Wii would've failed, Nintendo would've been done with consoles and probably would've just went handheld-exclusive. I for one find the DS to be a more enjoyable handheld over the PSP. So, to break it down, I'm glad the Wii did well for Nintendo because it'll keep them in the game a little bit longer. I will not buy one but I'm glad others are. Without Nintendo, I doubt that there ever would've been a Playstation or a Xbox (even though that would not have been much of a loss). With the Wii, you're either going to love it or hate it. I know I would rather sit and play a game with just my fingers but I also know my family loves the Wii (my sister has one) because it's nothing too high tech. Okay, I think my rant is over now.
