the Wii is less dead than the DS but still deadly dead....

goodbyes are a sad part of life but for every end there's a new beggining so one must never stop looking forward to the next dawn

Wii has been walking dead for years, even if there have been scattered third party releases. But it's still got a ton of awesome games - we've played far more Wii than Wii U over the past year, and I expect that continue in 2014 because of a huge backlog of cool Wii games that were purchased at low prices.

The Wii’s last year IMO was in 2010, after that, Nintendo gave lukewarm support to the system, looking at the games published, the only thing noteworthy in 2011/2012 was Skyward Sword and Kirby’s Return to Dreamland…………..with Xenoblade Chronicles, we had to kick and scream, and in return received a limited release. I’m sure a lot of this was due to the shift of developmental resources to the 3DS and Wii U, but still, 2011 and 2012 didn’t have to be as bleak as they were. Thankfully Xseed kinda picked up the gap.

In turn I think this kinda hurt Nintendo, they were out of the gaming public’s eye for a good two years by the time the Wii U launched.

Well for me the Wii is just getting started. I never owned a Wii before and recently got a Wii U for Christmas. Since it can play Wii games as well I am now staring to see out some good Wii games. I'm very excited to try the Wii Donkey Kong Country game and Mario Galaxy. So much to learn for me. I'm more used to my NES and SNES but am excited about starting my Wii and Wii U collection. What's old to some is new to others.

Pretty much. It's being overtaken with poorly made movie licenses now.

Ruby is awesome, so be nice. You wouldn't want her to be on her bad side, do you?

Games I'm currently playing: Kirby: Planet Robobot, Super Smash Bros. 3DS, various 3DS VC games, Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine for the N64 (A very underrated game If I do say so myself.)

i guess we don't count 3rd party titles like last story or pandoras tower. the latter was the last good release on the wii in my opinion

Maybe the system is gone, but not the games. I gave my wii away when i got my wii u and I still have my Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Punch Out!, Mario Kart and Twilight Princess. It's just time to upgrade if you have the money.

If you are expecting anything new, I would say yes. But I know plenty of people who still play their Wii and it's software is still being sold. It has a little life left, but would imagine that its days are numbered. A lot of people use it for Netflix, so that has given it some life

hahahah ) dead ??? kiddin me

I would say yes, but plenty of people still play it. I have a Wii U, so there's not really any reason to go back to the hardware. I do still play Wii games on my Wii U, though.

Also, I don't get why people keep playing the PS2. You might as well buy a BC PS3, then get rid of the PS2, but that's just my opinion. There's no need to have an old console, if the new one does things better and more, plus what the last one did. I just gave my Wii to my bro for free.

@SCAR392 "lso, I don't get why people keep playing the PS2. You might as well buy a BC PS3, then get rid of the PS2" have you ever heard of retro gaming ?? there are a lot of people love to play old games as well as new ones..

that is first reason.. the second one: most of the new games are only about graphic. You finish the game once and never play it twice.. the reason is the develpoers only think about money

but if you check the games starting 7-10 years ago, eventhough graphics werent that good (they were the best at the time) the fun was much higher than we have it from new consoles.. there was that gamin spirit in it..

if you are a young man, its hard for you to udnerstand.. you gotta live at that time

and third: ps2 game archives are more the ps3 games

so i think you got the point.. graphic is important but not everything.. thats why people keep playin with their wii's even ps2.. there are people who love playing with snes, ps1 etc

if you think the latest games are better in any way.. than you are wastin your time playin with wii u or ps3 etc.. you gotta get a gaming PC my firend thats the higest graphics, and it will always be

The Wii's been dead since April 2012.... The DS has been dead since Pokemon BW2. I bet the 3DS will die 2019-2020. The Wii U may be in that same time frame as the 3DS. Just guesstimating.

Depends on your definition of dead. If you mean dead as in no new games then Yes. If you mean do people still play them and does places sell games then no.

I keep all my old consoles because I'm also a collector. So there is a need for some.

No, of course it's not dead. Nintendo just took it to a farm upstate where it can play with other consoles like the Virtual Boy and Gameboy Micro.

lets say: if you play all that your interested games on wii and get bored then its dead because no more new games,
but if you still enjoy the games on wii and there are still games that you not play yet.. than not dead yet

i think this is the correct answer

sega mega drive and snes are not dead for me because i still enjoy to play.. you dont event touch them anymore, then they are dead for you
