The ONLY company that has anything to worry about is Sony. Their gaming division is tanking, their stocks have been downgraded to junk status, and the vita is a complete failure. They can't afford another ps3 so they are in deep trouble this gen. Could be their last console.

My vision of Nintendo has changed. I see them as the only company in the market willing to go full force with idea. They eventually get games to work using these ideas and I end up enjoying. It takes a while for amazing games to be released for their systems, but I don't mind the wait.


Right there. No one else is stepping out of their comfort zones; they all want to play it safe. I am weary of safe. As much as I am frustrated with Nintendo, I applaud their willingness to do what the others will not, especially when the others just end up copying Nintendo anyway, such as with adding motion control after mocking the Wii for so long, and then admitting with their actions that Nintendo was right all along. I want different. Gaming is feeling too stale to me after more that 3 decades.
I praise the name of Jesus.

The reason TC hates the Wii/Wii U is because he doesn't have any friends. Those console are way better when you group with other friends. We were 8 playing Nintendo Land and it was so fun. Too bad you're gonna miss out on all the fun TC.
Beware, I live!

Anyone who would hope for failure of any company is the most pathetic type of person.


EA. Actiblizzard. These two (three) companies have abhorrent business practices that make me wish for their respective failures. May the employees of the developers they hold dominion over swiftly find jobs paid for by less evil companies, or form their own, successful, less evil companies.

"ctrl+F: Crystal Bearers"

This upsets me for reasons I do not understand.

Looking at metacritic in terms of AAA games. Wii Only had 14 games over 90%, now lets compare that to the PS3 which came out at the same time which has 44 games over 90%.

Most of all the games you listed were pure and utter crap. Good try though.

You suffer from the same disease many trolls do, Opinionitis. You seem to think your opinion is fact and everyone else is wrong.

'Keep defending them if it makes you feel better about your purchase, but I'm done with them. I look forward to when some real next gen consoles come out' This statment here is testament to the fact that you're rather self involved and clueless. Welcome to the ignore list. We hope you enjoy your stay...forever!!!
Fanboys are a cancer to gaming but Sony fanboys are a particularly aggressive and repulsive form.
