The initial reactions to the original Wii were extremely favorable..and then they did absolutely nothing significant with the hardware for several years and closed the doors for good. Third party developers never figured it out, most people played it for a month or two only for it to spend most of its life collecting dust, the most exciting titles were available at launch, and overall, outside of the massive hardware sales, it was a failure in terms of generating license revenue or else third party developers would have flocked to it.
Now we have a system that doesn't have any significant launch titles, is even more complicated for developing games, is fatally flawed by a controller with a short battery life, and a host of other flaws.
I was told that the best was still to come with the original Wii, but it never arrived. This feels like more of the same. Underpowered, underdeveloped, poorly implemented, and a hack job of a release.
No thanks! Release some games that would make this system more along the lines of something I would want to own and less of a Nintendo-only arcade that only drops one decent title a year and maybe I'll buy in..
@362doc What utter rubbish you talk - no good titles released for wii after launch? wtf? Wii titles such as No More Heroes, Sin and Punishment 2, Mario Galaxy, Skyward Sword, Muramasa Demon Sword. Sonic Colours etc. were all released well after System Launch - you muppet
