DAILY MANIFESTO

The Fall of the Wii

Posted on Friday, November 12 @ 15:30:48 Eastern by Blake_Morse
With the Move and Kinect on the rise, is this really that shocking?

The short answer is a destinct, "NO!". As anyone here could attestt our Wii is only used when we have something that needs review. That doesn't mean that there aren't any good games out for it. Mario Galaxy, Smash Bros., the upcoming Zelda game, and No More Heroes to name a few. But most titles in the sea of Wii are complete throw-away novelties and make the system seem like more of a toy than a console.

And did you notice that pretty much all the titles I brought up are 1st party?

Yes, Call of Duty is available on the Wii, but why would you play it on that when everyone you know is going to be opting for a 360 or PS3 copy?

That's why I wasn't surprise to hear that game research analyst, Michael Pachter of Wedbush Morgan Securities state that he thought sales of the two new motion controllers were "cannibalizing" sales of Nintendo's now seemingly outdated console. And not only that, iPhones are starting to cut into the sale of DS hardware.

"We expect demand for the Xbox 360 to remain high due to the August release of the new slim Arcade model, the September release of Halo: Reach, and the October release of Fable III. PS3 sales should remain high due to the August release of the 160Gb model and the September release of Move, though Sony has a difficult comparison due to a price cut from $399 to $299 last September. We expect the Wii to continue to struggle due to gamer fatigue and a lack of high-profile releases. We believe Apple products are cannibalizing dedicated game handheld sales,"

Looks like Nintendo might actually have to get competitive now that they're not the only game in town. It's time for a Wii 2 if you ask me.
