Hello.. have you ever tried to visit some page with videos embedded ?

For videos, i mean MPEG , AVI, or WMV files or streams.

For example, in these sites :

No PS3 owners it appears. However, if this thread was
directed at Wii owners, it would be up to 50 pages long
already because WII IS DOMINATING THE MARKETSHARE!

Steams. Have. Crossed.

Ethic, stop talking. You probably spend more time gloating on the success of a casual aimed video game console with the largest collection of non-games in history more than I believe you actually spend playing. Is this because you finish the game in 2 hours, and wait for the next "big" release to finish in 3 hours?

Just because you play with a nintendo doesn't make you cute.

Offtopic, sorry, I can't help it.

I always prefer good old keyboard, mouse and a 19-inch LCD to all little joysticks and stuff like that. Has anyone seen the discovery channel advertise about little things that are uncomfortable to use? You get the idea.

Ethic should really be banned from further trolling posts like these. If he wants to flame, join the Nintendo forums with the rest of the mindless worshiping masses. "specialized" "arguments" such as these should really stay at a specialty forum for gaming.

That's true. I do spend more time gloating on the success of the
Wii than playing it. I don't even have a Wii yet. It won't be here
until tomorrow. I have yet to even touch the glorious Wiimote.
But that just shows how potent its awesomeness is. I mean, it
has won me over as a fan based on the idea of the machine
alone. An idea that has a greater potential to change the face of
gaming as we know it than either the PS3 or the 360.

The best part of the whole Wii dominating over that kids-toy-PS3
is that it has validated my predictions. And now, I can rub those
predictions in your face. Watch.

*rubs predictions in Indigos face with a dirty rag*

Oh, looks like somebody just got predictions rubbed all over
their face. How humiliating for you. Walking around... with
predictions all over your face. Girls are laughing at you.

Anyway, 2 hour games are awesome. See, us adults, we have
things call jobs which sometimes interfere with our ability
and desire to devote so many hours to a game. Sometimes we
just want to sit down with a Wiimote in one hand and a flask
of Absinthe in the other and relax.

Enjoy your epic titles, though. You know, like Lair (http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/929230.asp?q=Lair) and those
intense 5 hours of Heavenly Sword.

There's no trolling here. If you choose to get upset at the
fact that Wii is outselling both the 360 and the PS3, that's your
issue. If anybody is making hostile comments, it's you. Mindless

Okay. Plus, 360s don't last too long. There are people out
there who are on their 4th+ 360 because Microsoft didn't
design their machine too well.

Meanwhile, I'm sure my original NES still works. Despite
the fact that it's been buried in tonnes of garbage at the

Same here, except you can replace the landfill with the contents of my attic... actually they're pretty similar.

I'm still on my first 360, but I don't play it a whole lot, especially not since it freaked me out by locking up twice in one day playing Forza 2. I won't be buying another one. I have my Wii and PC to keep me warm at night.

EDIT: Thinking about it, every console before the PS2 never messed me about once. All my golden oldie consoles are original, mostly bought the day they were released. I wonder how much they'll be worth in the future.

The Wii lost its wondrous attraction about 2-3 days into playing around with it. I am a computer guy though, keyboard/mouse is more intuitive to me for the most part, and game pads are more intuitive than the wiimote, I have a Saitek p990 because of how similar it is to a PS2 controller, and I am considering a PS2 USB hook up for my computer just so I can use those controllers.

All of this changing the face of video games forever and such seems pretty blah to me, then again I still have a good time playing Dragon Warrior 1 every now and then.

Metroid Prime 3 rules, Smash Bros will rule (online play!), And Mario Galaxy will rule. Any one of which justifies the price of the console.\

People were criticizing the DS too when it came out. Turns out, it's a hell of a lot more awesome than the PSP

Tell me about it. My shoulder is still killing me from last week's tennis surge.

In other, extremely frustrating news, my 360 officially died last night. I can't fscking believe it - I was blabbering yesterday about it locking up etc (to more people than you lot here) and I go to watch a DVD. Guess what happens? 3. Red. Rings.

I hope it's still in warranty, I know I said I won't buy another one but damn, Assassins Creed and Kane & Lynch! I doubt I'll get them to run very well on my PC so the 360 is the only way I can play them.

Fate mocks me.

Ok this just proves your a mindless zombie controled by nintendo almost as bad as the zombies controlled by apple but that is off subject so... O and maby the reason the wii is selling better is because it is newer so less people have them. Even though the wii is newer it is still weaker then the 360 in terms of raw power as far as I know.

I'm not sure I follow. I wasn't "calling him out" on anything; my comment was directed at the part about the "apple zombies", and wasn't even totally serious. I don't even know anything about, or own, the wii.

I used to wonder where all the Apple profits went from all the mindless zombies who buy into apple brainwashing "oooh look at the coool surfer-dude guy with wavy hair, wow mac MUST be uber-cool, plus I'm waaay too dumb to actually have to configure anything myself" since steve jobs official salary is just $1.00. The answer came to me when I went to the Mac store recently... it all goes into designer lighting for their showrooms, apparently they're no longer selling PCs anymore, no, they're selling an image now, and its disguntingly pathetic how many people buy into that image.
Ditto for, Wii, and to a lesser extent Xbox 360, PS3, and Vista.
ZOMG guys a WEB BROWSER in my CONSOLE... its almost like a... a... PC, WOW.

I have a Wii now. And yep, it's more awesomer than anything
from Microsoft or Sony. I don't think I'm acting in any particular
negative way. It's you that's namecalling; that's turning it
into something personal. Sorry, man. It's time you do some
reflecting of your own. .

Listen, Lemming, I can easily label you as a mindless zombie,
too; but I won't do that. It would be mean. I just think you
have a shallow, superficial view of the medium. Which is okay;
nothing wrong with that. Don't take that as an insult.

I, personally, don't care how powerful a console is. It just
doesn't matter to me anymore. Graphics have reached a point
where the quality seems more dependent on art direction than
technology. Metroid Prime 3 looks better than most 360 games
I've seen; because of its art direction.

I'm glad the Wii isn't as powerful as the 360. Not only did I save
some cash, as well as the hassle of having to replace it time and
time again because Microsoft didn't design the console very well,
but the limitations force developers to think outside of the box
during design and development. They need to think about what
they can add to their title to make it stand up against the Halo 3s
or Gears of Wars; the teenager games.

As for forming an opinion before I even played it. See, the
uniqueness and ingenuity of the Wii is so disticnct, that one
doesn't actually need to play it to see its potential. Plus, Nintendo
was right with the DS - something that I bought at launch. So
their experiments have earned them some trust from me.
They know what they're doing.

Sony and MS just follow Nintendo.

Michael (who I know in real life), as I have said time and time again, the amount of blood/gore in a game does not affect the quality of the game. It is very easy to add some dark red splotches of color to the game compare to the actual game design.

Metroid Prime 3, a very well designed game, has better quality graphics than that of an Xbox360. Reason being the vivid and varying environments and the wide array of enemies. The scenery in this game is the best of any game I have ever seen. They made everything unique to its location and don't use the same pieces over and over.

I, unlike many gamers, am not made of money. I can not afford to dish out monthly payments to Micro$oft just to play online. With the Wii, I can have free online entertainment (Mario Strikers Charged Wi-Fi is awesome), global weather, global news, a very good web browser, etc. No cost, unless of course I am buying games on Virtual Console, which only about 20% as they did when that game came out.

As said in previous posts, the Xbox360 is not a reliable system. 4/5 People I know have had their Xbox360's break down at least once, including my brother's. Another example of Micro$oft's poor quality products: scratched Halo 3 disks. Most of the "Legendary Edition" disks are scratched due to poor packaging design.

Nintendo, on the other hand, can be trusted. I have inherited and NES, SNES, and an N64 from my brothers. I have bought and Gamecube, a Nintendo DS, Gameboys, and a Wii. Everything works flawlessly. The only thing that doesn't work perfectly is a cheap *non-Nintendo brand* NES controller that was bought used off of ebay.

Some Wii games I hope to get:
Medal of Honor (32 player Wi-Fi)
Smash Bros. Brawl
Super Mario Galaxy

Some DS game I want:
Legend of Zelda: PH
Mario Party DS
Contra 4
(I have an R4DS so I can get free trials of DS games.)


Michael (Limming), If I didn't know you personally, It would be very difficult for me to interpret that message. I have learned how you write over the years so I know that "Unreal tuornment" is Unreal Tournament.
