CoD is probably revolutionary in terms of FPS popularity. Xbox and PS perhaps in their own ways but totally off topic.

So nearly everything popular is revolutionary?

No this is totally on topic. It helps define your misinterpretation of what a revolution actually is. If you guys think every console and popular game is a revolution, then there's not much I care to go on about. I can't make you guys know what words mean.

Now if you all try to say the Wii is revolutionary, but Kinect, PS Move, Halo, etc. are not, then we have another problem because you're directly contradicting yourself.

So re-releasing games for download is revolutionary?

Holy coconuts.

Oh well please, go ahead and do it for us.

Everyone agrees that Wii's motion control was a revolution. I think the OP was asking about the console other stuff like the VC etc.

Um no we don't, what do you think the last couple pages have been about?

And if you all try to argue that the virtual console was revolutionary, this thread is going to be the butt of a few jokes for me.

[/div]

I'll take that as a no.
And who's we? you and whose army? However, nothing like the VC had ever been done before or really has since. So yeah, I'd say that's revolutionary.

I think I'm just the only one stubborn enough to think they can make any progress on such a biased site. But now that we've concluded everything is revolutionary is your eyes, I'm perfectly happy with you calling the Wii whatever you'd like.

Other companies have not re-released their old games digitally?

People can explain this to you over And over again. But it will just be repeating the facts. Yes the revolution isn't the invention. Its making the mass product successfully implementing new concepts and ideas and taking in massive new crowds to do it popularizing it in mainstream consciousness and awareness. For example cutting soneones head off is not a revolution. But the French Revolution did something monumental and in a massive scale.

Now moving on.... lol

Except the ideas weren't new. So selling a lot = revolution.

Awesome. I'm not sure that's how the definition was intended, but whatever floats your boat.

Yes they have, but not quite on this scale. Sony has PSOne Classics and some NeoGeo games.. That's 2 consoles. The VC has... well I can't tell you exactly off the top of my head, but I'm pretty sure there are at least 6-7, not including VC Arcade.

Read number 3?

With that ideology, everything is a revolution. If you want to go that route feel free. I'll stick with definition number 3.

Your knowledge of gaming is something else.

So because people bought a lot of games on the VC, it was a revolution? So digital re-releases on the PS3 and PC are revolutionary as well..

This goes back to everything being a revolution.

I would love to see technology from your point of view. I think it's basically a timeline of Nintendo released, with "Nintendo invents..." in front of everything.

Uh, yeah it did. Not only has it sold a huge amount of consoles in it's lifetime but it also has it's competitors copying it's act. Does the PS Move or Kinect ring any bells. Last time I checked they both selling that well. Though the Kinect did have a good launch in terms of sales.

Favorite Games: Sonic CD, Sonic 3 and Knuckles, Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland, and Call of Duty: Black Ops, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, and Mega Man 5.

Playstation had motion controls last gen with the Eye Toy.

I'm guessing that was a revolution too?

Besides the two I mentioned?

You completely disregard the fact other consoles this gen do the same thing, and there is a platform that has done it for decades?

I think this is the point where not only everyone disagrees with what you are saying but you started not making sense to even yourself.
