Ex-DICE boss: 'Wii not a games machine'

Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

Well he is kind off. To say its not a games machine and not an entertainment focused product is a bit of a silly thing to say.
However he is right most people  that have a Wii dont play it. I only use it for the Wii fit.
The kids love it though.
I think the Wii is perfect for the market its aimed at.
No matter what games you like its still gaming :)

I've played on the Wii a couple of times & never ever thought about getting one, no killer apps for me, it's still just a Gamecube with crappy motion control tacked on.

It's fine for kids & families that don't take gaming seriously, hardcore gamers pretty much ignore it, like myself  :)

No matter how much I enjoy a Wii game, I am constantly aware of the thought, "this game would be so much better on the 360".

For me, the one thing that the Wii does best is Rail Shooters.  However, that may change once Microsoft's Natal and Sony's "Arc?" drops later this year.
