This shows Nintendo clearly know what they are doing this time.
They let the Gamecube die an undignified death, which was a shame as I thought it was a great little console, and N64 (which I wasn't so keen on) was also let down imho.
They have achieved their success without the help (and possibly hinderance ? ) of the printed games press. If you were to buy a supposed multi format games magazine, you may not know the little white wierdo called Wii even existed.
While the Wii has more than its fair share of crap games, they give the illusion that every game on the admittedly more powerful consoles are classics, when in reality for every fable 2 on 360 there is a Crazy Mouse, for every Little Big Planet on PS3 there is a Legendary.
There endeth this meandering rant.
