    Sooner or later someone would have brought this up. It looks like the Wii is finally about to die. After everyone's done with Skyward Sword, the Wii will practically be reduced to a small, worthless, white box. The Wii U is coming out soon so there's no need to worry, but I still feel bad about my Wii....

    I forgot
    It may be dead in terms of development but I'm sure people will continue to play it. It's like the PS2, its dead but a lot of people still play that fucker. It's still got a game being developed for it :P

    Wii console will die, Wii games won't. Don't forget Wii U plays all Wii games and uses all Wii peripherals.

    This, I know loads of people who still play GC games, and have you seen the amount of threads about emulating GB / GBA games???

    NES FTW!!! nuff said.

    Anyway, theres still a few titles to look forward to. Pandoras Tower and Last Story eu releases :)
    And I read somewhere that Mario Party 9 was planned to get released soon... But knowing nintendo they will probably hold it back and launch it with the WiiU instead.

    Yes!
    That means it's time for me to buy one. Don't hesitate to sell your worthless white boxes to me if that's the way you feel about it.

    Like blade have said, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower and Dragon Quest is yet to be released.

    Also, being a Wii late owner, I still have lots of games to play yet!

    I hate RPGs, so, I guess after MW3 I just have to play the same games over and over again until WII U is launched, cheaper and crackable...

    Actually, the reason I started playing the PS2 again is because of openps2loader. So many otherwise excellent games on the PS2 have such insane loading times when played from disc. Even DQ8 is much more playable when run from an internal hard drive.

    Maybe, but the x360 will be deprecated in a couple of years. And I´m used to play using the wiimote and will be very difficult to go back to any classic controller, right now.
    Besides, in my country, all HD consoles are still very expensive to buy...
