    Wii knew what the people wanted and they delivered.

    Cost has a lot to do with it. And Sony doesn't have Final Fantasy out yet.

    It will be interesting to see how the Wii goes because I'm curious to see if the whole Wiimote stuff will end up being a gimmick or not.

    Shane, people have been saying that since the beginning. Its been out since November and still selling like mad. I think the consumer has answered that question.

    Sure, but it's not even a year old. What about next year, the year after that, etc. The PS2 was by all accounts a success, there's 100M sold over the years and sales are still very strong. Will we see that with the Wii, or will it die off after awhile and become a footnote in the long term.

    I don't think so. Let's see in a year or so when the games are out(not much is out now) and we see if they continue to innovate and they reviews are good for those. The last few issues of EGM haven't been kind to the games. The only super successful ones so far are Nintendo's first party games and those don't keep a console alive.
