Thoughts on the Wii

This article from ars technica delves into the the decisions and thought processes that led to the development of the Wii as a game platform that both refuses to compete with Sony and Microsoft’s consoles and offers something entirely new; a true “revolution” in gaming.  Whether or not that path will ultimately be reward Nintendo remains to be seen, but I for one support them, and the Wii is my choice for my next “next-gen” console.  Aside from the low price point ($250 with a controller and game), Nintendo’s success with the DS makes me believe that it really can achieve all its set out to do.

Of course, I’m still gonna wait it out until they come up with the black Wii to go with my black DS.  By then, it should cost slightly less and new games for my beloved PS2 will become few and far between.
