i think you've got that the other way around, ps3 games (call of duty 3, madden) can all be done easily on wii with less graphics, you continue to switch the controller functions out of the previous arguments and replace them with graphical power countersSheky wrote: ↑.... the remote is niche because that's all the Wii can do. The PS3 can offer a different style of gaming but the Wii can't because of the pad and hardware limitation. PS3 can do Wii's games, Wii can't do PS3's games. Reread my post earlier. That's why it's niche; the PS3 and 360 is not counting on a remote to sell their systems. Like I said earlier, the moment Sony releases a Blu ray remote that doubles as a Wii like controller, the Wii is sunk.
And stop deluding yourself about the power of exclusive titles. Why the hell would people buy the system if they don't like the games for it or have no idea what the games on it are like? Have you seen how ******** people are when a new DQ, FF, and Halo lauches? The more of these titles you have for your system the more likely it is that'll succeed. It's been shown time and time again, people like certain franchises. You don't have those franchises, well, chances are people are not going to put your console on the top of their shopping list.
Games are what sells the systems and innovation /= success. HTH
the truth of the matter is the wii will be able to loads of games that will either be exclusive to the system or will have exclusive functionality from other systems, like in call of duty 3
and you're deluded if you think that because the wii controller is short 1 shoulder button you can't recreate basic functionality of any other game on the market because the second motion sensor (1 in nunchuk 1 in remote) can easily replace 4 to 8 buttons with basic movements
obviously you could try to port over a game like zelda but you don't have 2 motion sensors, or the free motion of being able to move your hands in different directions at the same time, it's nothing like the original experience, and when you change the experience, you change the game
if you had to play the ps3 with your feet you could be playing the same ps2 port but it's not the same experience as it originally was
it's funny you brought up innovation too, what exactly has sony been innovative with since they got into gaming? what have they brought to the table that no one else has? other than a bigger storage space or dual analogs (which i thought were completely useless until nhl 07 on 360) and graphics and hardware upgrades don't count, that's progression, that's been happening since pong
