    Give me some reasons why I should keep the Wii

    Hey I have a wii and plenty on it all the controllers I need, also have various gamecube games and various controllers memory cards. A very good package to say the least.

    But im thinking long term, what is that is coming out that will take me away from my xbox and ps3.

    Tbh Im thinking of getting a N64 again for goldeneye mariokart and lylat wars to name a few. Which to me was far better fun.

    I love it don't get me wrong, simple fun. But I just dont see me wanting to play it any longer when simply I never have time to play it, and 4 player fun can be had one simple 64 games which are never coming out for the wii. Damn rare.

    theres a n64 emu for the wii isnt there?

    yeah its called wii64
    seem there is some good homebrew


    also scumm is good as monkey island is a good point and click

    Party play is good but other than that if your really into games their better on PS£/Xbox 360.

    Supermod

    Wii Sports Resort with the motion plus. They are bringing out a tennis game as well for the motion plus which should by all accounts be pretty good.

    How would Wii homebrew affect using the console online?

    Not seen any reason yet to keep it, no new game realises that make you want to keep it. And the extra £10-15 for that new motion sensor is a good con. 4 controllers going to cost the price of and xbox console alone.

    The Conduit
    EA Sport's Grand Slam Tennis

    Check them out -one or two should intrest you.

    Maybe you should wait till May-ish before you decide on selling - see what new games Nintendo will reveal at E3 - if nothing takes your fancy then, you know what to do.

    so u lose weight

    Good plan. The Wii really is very boring after losing the wow factor.

    its not the wow factor its the total like of mainstream titles.
    Xbox and PS3 even have a new title a month that makes you go wow.
    Currently playing gears of war, but then I have killzone on the ps3. Then rpgs coming out for xbox and ps3 (final fantasy) Then I have stradegys for the ps3 (eventually) and xbox Red alert.
    Love the wii but its sitting there as excess cash, and someone else can enjoy. will have to list it later.

    I agree. Even for casual gaming I play more on Rock Band or just a bit of FIFA. Can't actually remember the last time I turned the Wii on.

    Its really sad. Because the potential is brilliant.

    what i really want to see is that game producers really goes back to oldschool in the retro days (graphics revamped or not, i don't really care). You know, go back to the 2d genre, that is, if people still remember those days.

    For the wii, maybe add a little thing for the motion sensor, like shoot anywhere by pointing where you want in contra. But then again, im no game producer.

    I want the classics to come out. But unfortunately to many legal issues.
