Yeah, they want to distribute content through it. When it's officially announced, watch Netflix, Blockbuster (lulz), and Redbox to virtually die overnight.

Well maybe not Redbox. Poor people use those.

Yeah, but moreso as a "Supermarket DVD rental kiosk' than a brick and mortar thing. I see their kiosks at my supermarket.

Yeah, I have to agree. Most of my Wii stuff is third party.
There's interesting third party stuff for it and the GC, you just have to look for it.

Like that 2D samurai game, I forget the name but I used to own it and it was pretty good if a tad repetitious. It had some massive boss encounters.

You mean Muramasa?

Muramusa was indeed good but it did get boring quickly. I would have rather had a level-based game than running to and fro.

For a while Wii was getting all these cool small quirky games (for not too much money) and Arcade related output. Still glad it brought some cool japanese gems as Discipline: Teikoku no Tanjou and Line Attack Heroes (japanese wiiware exclusives). My lightgun and rail shooter fix. And No More Heroes series, MadWorld and all the other Beat'em up wannabee's, Konami's ReBirth stuff.

But now tides have been completely turned. PS3/360 have all the stuff now (PS3 get's all the lightgun games now) and Wii has completely nothing, except for some boring RPG releases that has been released in Japan ages ago.

Pointless wandering is all the rage now, people seem have fun doing that...

Muramasa is my favourite Wii game so far, and it's the reason I didn't sell it when the Xenoblade fiasco was originally announced. At least the Wii has Rhythm Heaven coming this year.

Muramasa did indeed get boring to me. So I has to agree with Joe here.

Also, if apple are making a TV. Would make sense. Their iMac displays are awesome, the reviews of them and what not.

It's already done, tho I know lots of people who cannot apart from their iDevices. It's kinda scary. But that's how Apple touching daily life of many souls.

Until Nintendo release the official spec of Wii U , I can only assume that this console is just slightly above current gen console and can be easily surpass by next PS and Xbox in a few years from now.

Which means they will be on third position again in graphic comparison. But as Wii proven before, gaming (sometimes) isn't all about fancy graphic.

All I know is I havent touched my psp or DS or like...moooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooonths to a year because of my iphone games. So I wonder what they could do to the console side when they've effectivetly slapped the 'king of handhelds' down. Plenty of my friends havent touched their ds/psps since they got their iphone/ipad games. And I'm not talking just casual games. They have proper length games especially rpgs.
