Well, the sales are going to stop going crazy, it all makes sense now.

The Wii is half Gamecube. I forgot about that.

Hmm... So if Wii decides to go full-out Wii next generation, they'll be able to sell more and do more without the GC weighing it down. Thank God I skipped the sixth generation with my trusty N64. The GameCube was a success but not so out-there.... I felt bad for the old indigo lunchbox back then, I only played Smash Bros. on it over my cousin's house.

I hope this means that they're taking some of the competition out there seriously.

NSMB is going to be a huge hit this christmas. After that there's a bit of a wait......., but it just may be worth it?

Well, there might not be a wait. Galaxy 2 could really hit any time. They've already said it could have been released this year but they already had enough Mario lined up. Maybe we'll see it early next year, followed by S&P2 not long after (or vice versa). Fingers crossed. Nintendo just needs to spread out its good titles better. We had a bad lull last year, and NPCs didn't really help anything except fuel pointless (but entertaining) debate.

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

I'm sorry but I'll be helping Sony out this year.... I've waited far too long and I've convinced my parents so I'll be getting a PS3 this year. Sorry but Nintendo might be in trouble they may have a few really big guns, but Sony has even more big guns just coming out and coming soon. Heres a list of those guns in my Opinion:
Wii:
Super Mario Galaxy 2, NSMBW, Metroid: Other M, Sin and Punishment 2, Monster Hunter 3 ,FFCC: TCB, Red Steel 2 (Maybe), Arc Rise Fantasia (Maybe), TvC: UAS, Epic Mickey, and a couple more games possibly.
PS3:
ModNation Racers, GOW III, Uncharted 2: Among Theives, Heavy Rain, Final Fantasy XIII, White Knight Chronicles, Gran Turismo 5, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, Modern Warfare 2, MAG, Final Fantasy XIV, Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, and several others.
Not looking good for the Wii. The PS3 has brought out the big guns and is ready for battle!

Is no secret that Japan's console market is shrinking. Over there portables are now the "real" consoles.

The lifestyle of japanese people just made them less receptive to consoles unlike before. The Wii had a great success with the girl teenagers and housewives while the everyday shrinking base of nerds and hardcores use the Playstation 3. But everybody, of any gender, skill and age play portables (NDS).

Games like Mario Kart Wii, Wii Fit, Monster Hunter 3 and soon NSMBWii (Mario galaxy sold very poorly on japan so no, MG2 won't help) will help them but it will be a hard task and it will be interesting to watch.

Goodf Luck to Nintendo!
