I don't think the Wii is a low end alternative to anything , still I didn't get the bose metaphora , really - i suppose we agree that the wii is far less hyped then xbox360 and ps3 , and all that's discussed is related to the lack of software that's able to show the Nintendo console aim and virtues . Nintendo has never been the bose of console world , but it's been the most pure fun oriented
brand up to now .
To not have the latest graphics available it's a loss in videogame industry of 2006(7) , this is sure thing but still we have to see the graphics that's capable ( am I wrong ? ) , and btw the xbox360 never impressed/s me graphically ( it is an upgraded xbox and not a "new" console really ) .
RE4 on Gcn was one of the best looking for console of last year , and probably ever .
I suppose the wii will have much more of the power that's available on a gcn , and suppose that if the launch goes well , developers will get VERY interested in writing games for the Wii and in some way more interested then to write things for xbox360 (? still miss this console meanings , other then cash for microsoft ) and for ps3.
Maybe it is soon , and it's better that skeptics wait a bit more before expressing so negatively on the fate and the reliability of the next gen Nintendo console .
and .. there's fanboysm on X console and fanboysn on Y console , sure thing . And there's also some people who can't simply have fun for things that other people find extreme joy in ( think sennheiser vs grado , or rs-1 vs hp-2 ) . I'm not a Nintendo fanboy , I must admit though that leaving for a while with ps-2 and gcn I choosed to get me a gcn , and I'm not hardcore gamer , but sincerely the 10 games I've tried with ps-2 and with gcn made me choose on the fun and the beauty
I've found in some Nintendo enterteining manners and productions
