In all honesty, if I was a Wii only owner I wouldn't care at all.
Bingo, as a currently Wii-only owner, I can't say my interests in Darksiders are too high. Should I ever get the budget to pick up a PS3/Xbox 360, maybe I'll try it out (and maybe not). I can't really say I've thought too much about the game, until this thread brought it up, and even now, I'm not crying a river or anything about it. :P
Anyways, why would anyone be mad at Nintendo? If anything, they should be mad at themselves buying a Wii and expecting it to support everything the PS3/Xbox360 does and vice versa, especially if you knew from the get-go the system wouldn't be as powerful as the HD consoles. Nintendo did what it thought it should do, and as it turns out, their plan worked better than even they had hoped for. Contrary to popular opinion, a more powerful console wouldn't have guarnteed that every PS3/Xbox360 multiplat would have made it to the Nintendo console anyways, and if history is any indication, the Nintendo console would still be stuck with a lineup that's mostly first-party dominated and family-friendly oriented. Horsepower alone doesn't determine if a publisher/developer wants to make certain games on a certain system, especially if Nintendo's name is anywhere around it.
I think the sales of the Wii has already let Nintendo know what fans want, and while I suspect the next system to be more powerful than the Wii, I highly doubt Nintendo will be breaking its neck (and budget) to put together the most powerful system in the history of mankind for the sake of multiplats that would probably sell the worst on the Nintendo system, regardless of how powerful it might be.
