article imageWii on Decline

Is it the fact that once you have played one Mario Party, you have played them all? Or is it the lower Hardware Specs used to create the product. Either way, the Wii's popularity is falling faster than the Roman Empire did.
Yesterday, after speaking with Scott Steinberg, Sega's US Vice President of marketing, a pretty bold statement was made. Steinberg has predicted and declared that by the year 2008, the Nintendo Wii (new video game console) will be a complete disaster and everyone would lose respect for the system.
That is what you call a bummer. Like the Roman Empire, there are many reasons for the Wii's current Decline, meaning that because there are so many problems, the failure and fall of the Wii is inevitable.
One main reason for the current lack of popularity is the low grade hardware used to create the machine. In comparison to the Nintendo Gamecube (nintendo's previous video game console), there are not many differences. All of them are visual and one of them is the motion controlled Wii remote (allows players to control on screen objects through motion). Another problem that has been haunting Nintendo's larger systems these past few years are the lack of originality in the games. Because the Wii is straight forwared, and is just a better version of the Gamecube, all of the games for the console are just remakes of other games.
But a turn of events should be mentioned. The once titled, lame machine, the PS3 (Sony's video game console) is starting to beat both the Wii and the Xbox 360 in sales. Also predicted by Steinberg, by the end of this year, PS3 will reign as the number one console because of it's expansive originality and technology.
