With all the "Sony is claiming ex-wii owners" topic...

Let me just say that I was a PS3 player and now my only console is the Wii U. I'm PC/WiiU this gen.

Hey, that's something!

Sony is just looking for hits.

It's just for media buzz. Any gamer with common sense knows it's a dumb statement. Casuals who played the Wii for party games and such are not going to get a PS4. Not a Wii U either, they're not going to pay over $200 for any console.

Further, looking at the adoption rate, it appears that a large portion of the previous base hasn't adopted a new console yet.

Sony should stop joking about the Wii and figure out a way to get more people to convert from a 3 to a 4.

Well I had a Wii and currently have a Wii U now at some point either late this year or next year I will get a Xbox One for Halo and Gears. I don't really care for Sony first party exclusives.

But the Wii had a gimmick that made the price worth it in the eyes of the consumer.

The Wii got a price drop in 2008 to $200, about 2 years after launch. Besides that, it was a different era in gaming. The type of crowd that plays Wii games is the same type that plays browser games and smartphone/tablet games. It's not sensible for them anymore to spend money on a dedicated gaming console.

This. Nobody has claimed then. Xbox One was the most likely to get it done this gen, but they failed miserably too.
