Nintendo is the Master of games. They have always been easy to play with (except Virtual Boy ). The Wii just lets you grab the stick and shake it.

As us guys know you gotta shake the dew off the lilly. Perhaps that will be one of the mini games in the Warioware for the Wii

I haven't seen the clip yet but here is my view on the wii,

I think nintendo has the right idea of trying to make gamers move a little but at the moment its just not what the market it looking for. Even in china the land which is open to all ideas and has excepted ddr as a national pastime isn't even that excited about the wii. results show that most gamers are interested in the ps3. And i'm on the same boat as most gamers.

Its mostly because gamers ar looking for stunning graphics, awesome games, a solid console, a system which is for all ages and has a variety of games, inovation, etc. And so far the ps3 is the one which has the most things which gamers want. Yes the wii would be an awesome console to play for a weekend but to spend several hundred dollars on it and using it as your primary console its a big "No".

Why do i say the ps3 is the better console, simply because it has everything i want. The graphics are stunning unlike the wii which still has the childish look to it. The ps3 has a variety of games for all ages. so one day i can be playing a little kidie game with my cousin and the next i can be killing soldiers on the most realistic battle field ever. While the wii has mostly all kidie games and the 360 has mostly more violent games.

so my recomendation is don't pick up one of the new consoles yet in November but instead wait a few months till the ps3 comes down in price a little and then buy the ps3. Or if you don't want to buy the ps3 then stick with pc gaming.

A few months; what planet are you from? Try next year before the price drops a bit and that is if we are lucky.

Now usually they bundle a couple of games with consoles and stuff with christmas so they jack up the price. And also wait a couple of months to see if any of the console shipments have bugs in it like the first couple shipments of the 360 had. So after a couple of months after telease they usually reduce the bundles to include one game which reduces the price and most of the bugs wil be fixed by that time.
