I hate to break it to you nico, but people other than pencil dick nerds have an interest in playing video games. The general public does not give a **** that a game runs in 1080p or has "megatextures" or horse**** like that.
Example A: I dated a girl a few months ago (something you ought to try sometime), and she had a Wii at her apartment. She asked me if I wanted to play a game and I said sure, so she popped in "Michael Jackson Dance Moves." From a technical standpoint, it was a very badly designed game with low production values, but you know what? It was a lot of fun because I was interacting with A GIRL as opposed to beating off to porn like most ElIT3 pC G4M4R$$$ do.
That is the value of systems like the Wii and the WiiU. They provide an option to people who don't want to sit in front of a display monitor for eight hours hardcore and play the latest "God of War" title.
Zelda, I am definitely not a videogame geek and happen to be married. You just confirmed my suspicions. The games out for the Wii are craptastic entries like Michael Jackson Dance
. Thus, although it is a commercial success (although if you look at Nintendo's profits last year they were awful), the Wii is a wonder for boys, girls and soccer moms. An average PC gamer laughs at the toy that is the Wii. At least the PS3 and XB360 can stream HD movies and more integrated into a home theater setting. Whatever, you go play with your Wii and Ken dolls and real gamers will rejoice in the far superior other systems.
As for the WiiU, good luck with that. Let's see if it is really as big a commercial success as you predict. Time will tell.
