People in the OG board tend to lead fanboy battles where the fanboys of one system group together and gratulate each other on how great their sysdtem is while the fanboys of the other system flame them for it. Are you so insecure about your purchase that you have to group together just to tell each other why the other nearly identical system is so much worse?

I like my console, couldn't care less about the other guys. I know I'm not missing out on much.

I still wanna go in that 360/PS3 thread though and fling some mud. When I get really bored I might.

Rawr!

@KDR_11k.... Kinda like your post in the PS3 Fans Unite Thread

I could care less about any of it UNTIL its the fans that look over and/or ignore major issues with the company that they are a fanboy of. If the company is screwing its gamers they are screwing them and its just that. Just because you like them doesnt mean they cant get better and fix there problems.

Oh lawd, some more "if you bring up the faults of something else, you're really insecure about your own purchase" nonsense.

Because everyone with a PS3/360/PC that criticizes the Wii actually wishes they had one.

Or they know nothing about the Wii. To them, the Wii is underpowered, waggle-based, has bad online, and is for kiddies.

Wii
It doesn't matter what the other fanboys think because its your preference if you like the wii really, and they don't know the fun they are missing out on

Wow so ALL 360/PS3/PC fans that criticize the Wii either really wish they had one and are just insecure about their purchase, or they know nothing about the console?

These are the types of things that make me dislike this site and its members. Well actually Nintendo fans in general.

And for the most part, what was supposed to be a fanboyish assertion in your post, is correct. The Wii is underpowered, a lot of games are just waggle, and compared to any other console it has bad online. Bring in someone that cares to argue about the Wii being targeted to a younger audience, and most of what you posted is correct.

Talk about irony.

The "other nearly identical system?" They really aren't all THAT similar, y'know. Blu-ray vs. DVD, built-in wireless vs. $100 add-on, standardized hard drives vs. overpriced proprietary ones, free online vs. paid service (and Live's been running like crap again lately, at least in my house, while PSN remains smooth as ever), smartly designed to cool efficiently vs. overheating machine... Yeah, they're practically the same thing!

Okay, so I'll grant you they're more similar than either is to the Wii, but that's not really the point, is it? Like I've said, I made my conclusion after spending a lot of time with both the 360 AND the PS3. I know the differences inside and out from experience. So when I see a discussion about PS3 vs. 360 come up, I put in my analysis and watch as it's either ignored or ripped apart regardless of its content.

What's with people using the word "wankery" and expecting to be taken seriously?

I wouldn't say the Wii is underpowered, I'd say the other consoles were overpowered. The Wii is as powerful as it needs to be and no more, the 360 and the PS3 are so ridiculously beefed up to the point where both companies make huge losses selling them.

More needless comparisons and lots of that bad word up there.

@AlexSays & StuffGamer1..... Yall guy both said it perfectly within your two post. Ive owned all 3 myself and now only have the PS3 and that is MY preference. The Wii is great at what it does best. Motion Control when implemented properly, Nintendo Greatness in its first party games, Mario Galaxy is pure video gaming Gold. VC/WiiWare success is well known. VC bein a literal Gaming Retro Collection. But it also has some major faults, the main one and the one that pushed me away from the system is the lack of Games that deserve their AAA title. Too much shovelware and Nintendo needs to quit putting there seal of approval on anything that want to be shoved on the shelf.

Unless someone in this thread works for Microsoft or Sony's game divisions, whether they are selling at a loss is entirely irrelevant to whether the system is good for gamers or not. If we are comparing console quality as gamers, a system can't be overpowered. There's no logical reason to be glad that a console is less capable in any regard than its rivals. I'd love for the Wii to be capable of rendering a game like Flower, or for the WiiWare size limit to allow for games like Street Fighter II HD and Fat Princess.

One can definitely say the Wii is underpowered. The Wii may be the king or queen of sales right now, but that doesn't mean it rules at everything.
