Default How bad do you want the Nintendo Wii?

With all this craziness, I decided to do this poll. This will last until end of December.

This poll ONLY applies to people who want or don't want the game system to play with.

Sorry but the Wii just isn't worth it. Come on, only 480p resolution? What a joke.

Let's not start a flame war over this!

If you must, make it to the death. ¡A la muerte!

I have a feeling you don't even know what 480p means. Why don't you look it up while you wait for your PS3 to load a game. Hell, you don't work anyway so who cares about loading times!

When you need to balance your PS3 on it's side so it'll actually work next week, get back to me.

Come on, calm it down.

Even though the PS3 isn't all that revolutionary and has gotten bad reviews doesn't mean we should bash it.

I loved my PS2. I think it was the best game console by far. Better than Xbox or gamecube. Xbox was ok but it seemed like they only made First Person Shooters for it and I'm not a fan of those.

PS2 was the best. Don't have any of the new gen. consoles. By the time the kids are old enough to want one we'll be on PS4 so I'll buy one of those.

And you'd be completely wrong. I'm well versed on what 480p is and how crap it is (standard DVD definition, EDTV, take your pick). The 360 has been out for a year and does both 720p and 1080i, so 480p just doesn't cut it these days. I don't own a PS3, don't plan on buying a PS3 right now (no scaler in the PS3..dumbass move there), so you are 0 for 2. Oh, and I do have a job, a good paying one that allows me to buy things like 1080p sets that have no real uses except to say I have 1080p. So I guess that makes three strikes for you actually.

Now what was that you were saying about apologizing for personal attacks with no basis in fact, on an admin no less?

I want a Wii but i'm not willing to pay over retail price.

I don't know why Nintendo only made the Will with 480p especially since standard high def is 720p or better now. Maybe thats why it's $250 instead of $400 or $600.

I think Nintendo is trying to be the Ford or Chevy of the gaming industry not the BMW or Mercedes. It will get you wherer you want to go but your not going to have heated seats and power windows.

I could care less if a game system is high def or not as long as games for it are fun. Thats all that matters to me. You can have the best looking game ever made but if the gameplay sucks you aren't going to want to play it just because it looks so good.

I'll stick with my PC games. The mod community makes it so that you can play every game at least twice.

/just downloaded 5 mods for Oblivion and am getting ready to play that one again

Cool

haha this was a fun read guys, thanks. personally im very happy with my wii. yes it would be nice if the pictire was better but like said above i am having a lot of fun with the games, which is the real point of any system. also i am happy that it was the cheapest of the systems, even a poor college student like myself could afford it.
