Nintendo Wii

I dont know if any of you have guys have played this, but don't blind yourselves with just the 360 and the PS3. I am not a Nintendo person, but this system is sick. Talk about next gen gaming the motion sensored controllers are awesome.

At first I was very skeptical about the system, but it is soo much fun. I would even go to say it is more entertaining for multiple player games that the other systems just because of the controller. Wii Sports is a really fun game, Wii Tennis is an amazing mulitplayer game. I also played Madden and the 2 on 2 multiplayer game in Madden is soo much fun. Like if you want to throw a lob, you do a lob throwing motion, or zip it when you want to zip it. When you wanna catch it, you lift your controller.

I wouldn't be surprised if the 360 makes an controller that is motion sensitive and other games that they can use to keep up with the Wii.

Re: The Wii

They must be doing something right, it's kicking ass so far in the next-gen console war. I'm not in a huge hurry to get it, but it does look fun and I've heard a lot of great things about it so far. I'm sure I'll pick it up eventually.

Re: The Wii

I feel like the only person who has absolutely no desire to play games on it let alone buy it. I guess I just feel like the motion controller is a fad that I don't really see lasting, but I'm probably wrong.

The PS3 controller also has motion sensors, so yeah I'd say it's probably not going away.

This is basically how I feel too. I try to stay about 1-2 years behind the bleeding edge of consoles, but I grew up on Nintendo and I just saw an article on the new Zelda ... don't know how long I can wait now.

Re: The Wii

Speaking of the new Zelda has anyone played it yet?

I was thinking of getting it for the gamecube.

I have seen it played for a bit, it is really cool. The Wii controllers are just really expensive because you need to buy both the regular one and attachment, because they are both used during games, but 250 for the system is not bad.

And AMD I do not see the motion sensored controllers dying down anytime soon, I suggest you play the Wii with a bunch of your friends. It is really funny, I remember the first night I played I was up till 4 playing Wii Tennis. I came in with the same exact attitude about the Wii as you, but now I am in love with it. Give it a try outside of Best Buy.

Re: The Wii

That's the thing though, since college I don't play video games with my friends anymore. Personally, I'd rather play a game like Madden against the computer (I have no idea why) or Resident Evil-like games. Maybe that's why I don't think I'd really like the Wii.

Re: The Wii

Dude, is it because you live in your parents basement, and only come out to go to work?

Probably. Though I do tend to venture out on the weekends, but mainly to drink alcoholic beverages.

Everyone said the same thing about parachute pants back in the 80s, and clearly they were wrong about that.
