    This is why from his own words:

    ""We don't feel like the Wii customer and the Xbox customer are the same thing," Rodman reportedly said. "We think that as soon as the Wii customer turns 14, they want something else.""

    Any relation to Dennis Rodman? That would explain a few things. [​IMG]

    That a pigfarker... I'm 30 and I take a LOT of offense to that.

    I'm old enough to know a quality piece of entertainment and if I will enjoy it, that's why I have one of the Wii's not a 360, and definitely not a PS3.

    I'm all about something keeping me interested in front of a TV anymore, engaging, unique, and well...new even if new is applied to the old.

    He can just die in a fire, could care less if it's just stupid marketing blahblah to stir some shat...he still should.

    Anyone want to donate a gallon of gas?

    They're just jealous cause the "weakest" (power wise of course) system is outselling the Most powerful!! Excuses Excuses [​IMG]

    Praising your own system and trashtalking your opponents is a valid marketing practice, but he really should have thought twice before insulting their prospective customers. [​IMG]

    The Wii-60 population (owners of both consoles) is getting bigger and bigger, and dividing those into strictly X360 and strictly Wii owners is bad for business. Very bad for business [​IMG]

    In fact, he sounds suspiciously like Sony representatives [​IMG]

    I bet they'll sing a different song around September 2007 when the Wii surpasses the 360's sale numbers.

    To the Sony rep there all I can say in retaliation is, one shouldn't talk when their nation as a whole appears to be unable to afford basic dentistry. [​IMG]

    eh to each there own if they want to try and sell more by talking shit, the less respect i have for them, but i wont go out of my way to buy the xbox 360 to play a shitty game, all they have is first person shooters and sports games, im in it for the rpg's.

    uh, I can see why somebody would own both systems but I really don't see the wii lasting more than 5 years, imo as the graphics don't do it for me heh

    I own both the 360 and Wii, at the moment the 360 as better games but the Wii will have some of the best games ever made, just like the NES, SNES, N64, GC, C64, and many more platforms. Do you ever play and enjoy old games? I do a lot so graphics...who gives a rats really, take it or leave it really.

    Lets be honest here if Wii had the best graphics then games like Metroid Prime 3 or Mario Galaxy would be better, but they'll still play the same and thats what matters right?

    If someone is the sort of person who goes for a super powerful system than good for you I hope you enjoy what you got. To me PS3 and 360 are only different by what games are available for them, Wii is different because of the control system and the fact that Nintendo have a different style to what other developers do and will never make games for any console other than their own.

    Thats why I have a 360 and Wii, I get the best of both worlds.
