    DSi + PC = tied
    Wii
    PS3

    that's not to say I dont love my PS3, I just love my Wii.

    To say that Nintendo "doesnt care about hardcore gamers by releasing Mario/Zelda/ etc." is a moot point, they're catering to the NINTENDO HARDCORE! what do they care?

    When they DO release a "hardcore" game for the Wii (Madworld, Conduit, No More Heroes, etc.), it's met with low sales and people complain graphics. They've thrown you a bone and you turned your nose up.

    the Wii is not a system built to cater to your FPS-ing fantasies. Its not merely an upgraded GameCube (which was the most powerful console last-gen), it's its own device and you need to appreciate for what it is.
    Who's SoulQ?

    For the record, I did support the Wii's hardcore titles - back when I had a Wii I owned MadWorld, Galaxy, Zelda, No More Heroes, Metroid, and the like... didn't complain either, enjoyed them. I just couldn't stand the lack of online capabilities with the system (though I do love the virtual console titles available).

    Considering the Wii has been outselling the PS3 and 360 since it came out, I don't think "nobody" owns the Wii.

    In other news, the PS3 Slim has started outselling both the 360 and Wii ... 3 to 1. Of course, this was pre "Wii Price Cut", so we'll see what happens next.

    yeah, but I guess I'm not a "gamer". I tried playing braid, but got bored. We play guitar hero more than anything.

    an old mod who used to make the same argument as you

    and I'm not saying you personally didn't support them, dont get me wrong, I'm saying alot of other gamers have done that. I'm not perfectly happy with Nintendo's online gaming either, DS or Wii, but that's not their focus unfortunately and that works in their favor.

    (honestly, I dont want to hear a bunch of foul-mouthed trash talkers when playing Mario Strikers or anything competitive)

    There are lots of puzzle games, etc in the Arcade. I play Hearts on XBL and 1 vs 100 more then my disc games lately.
