The Wii Is Dying?

  • If you've read my blog, you'll find out I'm not the biggest fan of Nintendo Wii. Even though it's a bundle, $199 seems to me like a wasted bullet. However, I'm not going to rant about it: Please see Xbox 360 vs. PS3 vs. Wii to see my full thoughts on the Wii console.

    Back to the topic

    Whether or not you like the Wii, the bugger is doing pretty well for itself. This past week the Wii sold over 1.5 Million systems. That means Americans bought 9,000 Wii consoles non-stop for every hour every day for the week of Black Friday. That's nothing to sneeze at.

    I wanted to ask, do you think the Nintendo Wii has a few more glory days in front of itself, or is the Wii soon to pack it's last punch?

                                                        

  • i wud sale my wii but im wating 4 the new loz. i dont play it(i have a 360 now) but i let my bro and sis play it thay love super mario bros.  and sum GC game's ...  is the Wii dying...or dead YES

  • HAHA. The Wii isn't going anywhere. I see these a lot. Is the Wii dying, is Nintendo going to go under, blah blah blah. Nintendo has been around since the beginning. They will be around at the end. There is always a niche for them.

    If you bred HK-47, Shale, Chai Ka and Wrex, the gaming world would explode from sheer badassery.

  • Whether or not you think it true or not, the Wii is going under and will soon drown. Of course Nintendo will be around to surprise us again, but until then, folks are beginning to shove the Wii to the back of their TV stands and will soon be forgotten.

                                                        

  • to me it's not the wii itself, its the companies that makes the games. a lot of companies overuse the motion control of the wii which makes the controls clunky on the wii. companies like nintendo gets it right with either limiting the amount of motion control or giving you the option to us the gc/classic controller

    I agree with you about that.

     

    Sometimes I wonder what this world is coming to.

    I feel like the Nintendo Wii is a great system but isn't taken as seriously as it should. The Wii has become a family favorite system with the over flooding titles of party games and etc. I come over to any home and it seems like that white little box it piled right next to the familie's DVD player. This of course, isn't a big deal it is actually great for Nintendo's business and the family as well. But since the Wii has become more of a "family icon" system, it has been judged by the games that fill it instead of games like Mario, Kirby, Zelda, and Nintendo's other unique, challenging, and overall great games.  

    Now, I do like to hang out with friends and pull out a ridiculously funny but weak title for the Wii. That's where "party games" are actually fun but to judge Nintendo's 4 year old system by those games, comes to be completely unfair.

    I am a Nintendo fan but I can say that I don't press my Wii power button as much as my Xbox 360 (mostly because I am a huge Halo fan). But that doesn't mean I don't like that powerful little white box (well now mine is red, but you get the idea).

    I will say "yes". Yes, the Wii is dieing but it will still be a great overall system!
