I would've thought the drop is expected in anticipation of the new platform launching next month. I know i'm saving up my money

I would honestly play games like Epic Mickey if it wasn't on the Wii. I can get past the graphics, but I just don't want to be forced to play games by waggling the wii-mote.

Mario Kart Wii lost a lot of goodwill with me due to their horrible map choices. Honestly, it seems like they picked some of the worst maps of the past few games and ignored some of the best.


I never understood why they didn't milk that franchise more, at least with map boosters. Our GameCube used to be left one 24x7. At least 95% of that time was spent with Smash Brothers, but Mario Kart DD was the backup choice. It'd have been used more if we could get more maps once or twice during its lifecycle.

There are some really quality games for the Wii. If you can get past the graphics, it's a fun little system. I don't use mine that often but once in a while, I get an itch for Mario Kart Wii which is probably the greatest Nintendo game ever! Yeah, I said it.

I'm only surprised it has taken as long as it has for Nintendo to fall so hard. What a shame that such a once-great company has become so irrelevant to core gaming.

If you go back to the Revolution discussions I kind of defended them tooth and nail.
Then the Wii was announced and I was cautious at best. Then it was released and yeah. I still don't own one. For four generations the Nintendo dominated my console gaming, now I'll almost definitely get a PS3 but not a Wii (well, I never owned an N64, either, but played it nonstop from roommates. I had roommates with the Wii, too, but it didn't get used much., and the PS3 is mostly for bluray at this point.)

I always claimed that the GC and the N64 were great systems due to Nintendo's games (and this is why I felt those rumors of Microsoft acquiring Nintendo back when Nintendo was on the ropes made perfect sense.) With the Wii that proved to finally strain. Third parties went from weakly supporting to mostly abandoning, and Nintendo's games went from fun and innovative to pretty much derivative.

Story: "Nintendo profits fall 46%"

Hmm, maybe stop making absolutely horrible party games and movie tie- in games for the Wii. A lot of crap doesn't deserve the license.
