    Once the novelty wears off, you might as well just play tennis.

    I think if they continue to go down this route, they will end up killing themselves off.

    Sports games will have the novelty on them but yes, once it wears off it is better to go play real sports. But I doubt they will kill themselves off.

    it looks like fun, but it`s not enough to base an entire system off of, it`s so hard to develop for. Fighting games would be awesome though, Im just thinking it`d be hard to do standard adventure-ish or fps games.

    I sincerely hope that fighting and adventure games take this and run with it. Imagine Mario 64 with this type of interface--I would have easily destroyed the living room bounching off stuff! I would like to have seen more of the video output and less of the players, but, I`m sure that`s coming soon... :-)

    i`m sure there`s a plug & play type fighting game u can get... and shooting games and lightsaber games.. not for consoles, but straight into yer tv. the technology is not as good as this but playing the game with motion sensor type stuff is not really anything new... but cool nonetheless, an improvement on the tech already available

    You`re judging this based off a sports game. Check out the other games.

    The Wii is going to be so awesome. Sword games and shooters are especially going to be fun to play on the Wii. There are a lot of possibilities and disabilities with the new controller. If you want to know more and to check up on the Wii here`s nintendo`s site for it.

    wow, that was my 100th post, and to clear things up a bit, I am an American. Yes, we have a problem with being gluttons. A huge percentage of the population (esp. da Bronx) is obese, ignorant, and feels "entitled" to do whatever. They lack humility and reason. They drive huge Ford Excursions with 26inch rims to drive 2 blocks to but 50 cent beer. No bat to tow, no huge family to drive around... just wants to be a prick. We gotta change people. Please do us all a favor.

    The Wii may be #1 at E3, but it will be about as long-lived as the eyetoy. Like I said, children will grow up remembering the good `ol Wii while teens-adults will play it a couple times and forget about it. I mean comeon, a remote controller? A FLYSWATTER game!?! Dear jesus something reeks and Im pretty sure Nintendo did it.

    this WIIll get boring... after a week... but FPS`s dont look that good on wii (Red Steel) but no fighting game would be good, maybe boxing but with 2 controller but like Street Fighter wont work,i just think the Wii WIIll be a flop after all... I Still think consoles like the 360 would be better...

    1.The price around 800$ US
    2.No Good Actual Gameplay (that RPG looks weak)
    3.No real big announcement at E3
    4.No good game announce (MGS4 has no date)
    5.MGS4 has no gameplay video.
    6.HALO 3...
    7.Lots of better games on 360...EX:Gears of war
    8.The 360 is out aand the ps3 will be out in november 2007
    9.PS3 stoled nintendo motion control but it looks bad (only 6 angles)
    10.ONLINE ON 360!!!
    11. I was a Sony Fanboy before, just try Xbox, because PS2 was BAD...REALLY, The Gamecube wus better and im not kidding...

    You don`t have to jump around and go crazy like those people are, to the people who are saying that they wouldn`t play that because it would wear them out B-|


    You could just hold the control upwards while even like, resting on your stomach, and jerk your wrist.

    And you are horribly misinformed about most of your information to make the PS3 look worse than it is, even though I`m not a fan of it.

    1 try four hundred. B-|
    2.. uh. i could see how you would know that.
    3. )-|
    4. )-|
    5. because that is what makes a good game. early gameplay footage.
    6 )-|
    7. uh.. no. you can get all of those games on the computer if you really want them, and they`re easier to play with a mouse.
    8. ps3 is coming out in 2006 )-|
    9. it`s bad that they stole it, but it doesn`t work bad because it only has 6 angles, it just works different.
    10. online on ps3 too. )-|
    11. uh. surely you can see how ridiculous you are in this one.

    Comparing the PS3 (Or the 360 even though I absolutely despise it, as a matter of fact) to the Wii is insane. The gamecube since you mentioned it Grere, was the biggest peice of poo Ive ever seen. Horrible controller design, Peice of crap processor and the fact that the 1 person I know in my entire TOWN that had one was 4 years old.

    The Wii is in a newly invented gaming category ppl, so we unfortuately can`t base it of 360 and ps3.

    And the gamecube was VERY bad compared to all of nintendos former consoles.

    and one more thing, the ps3 people said at last years E3 that "The sony playstation 3 is NOT going to be about gaming", which means that, though the games are there, the ps3 is going to be more about
    giving the rich people a machine to watch dvds on for cheap. Hense the blue ray technology (like HDTV but MUCH higher quality and MUCH more expensive.) that will be in the console.

    Actually there is gonna be 2 models of ps3, one for gaming/dvds and one to be used more as an entertainment console that can do several things the other version cant, one version will be cheaper and the other more expensive, nothing to do with being rich. i already have enough saved up for 1 ps3 and in the time i could have saved up for several ps3s

    and i practically have owned every system that came out from microsoft, sony, nintendo, and sega, and by far microsoft and nintendo are my most favorite. nintendo won by a mile in my opinion back when the n64 was "it" but the gamecube horribly ruined them. im waiting for the legend of zelda twilight princess to come out WOOOT! oh yea and GO HALO! i like my xbox360 cus its practically like a computer except the one thing you cant really do that actually means anything is browing the internet (like typing in URL) but im pretty sure on the next gen after this one microsoft`s xbox will let you do that. anyway i still have a lot to learn about my xbox360 cus there`s so much. my ps2 is lame im serious. i was excited at first cus it was better than gamecube the the games freaking suck and the rental games you find for it are games that you have to be really bored to play and they give you a headache. overall, whenever ps3 and wii come out, ill buy them both.

    but sinse like ps3 seems to me like its going to suck i might hesitate before i buy it and like ask around, but HAHA! who is oging to own one of those big-ars printer-look-alikes that costs 400 dollars and up. sony is stupid who is going to spend 400 dollars on the bigger version when you can just go buy a better entertainment center-like thing for less? who cares about it playing DVDs and CDs. EVERYTHING DOES NOW!!! EVEN YOUR COMPUTER WILL!! its not like we ever used those options anyway lol. they made so much hype about the ps2 cus it could do that and it tissed me off. who here can actually say they play their music cds and dvds through their ps2 regularly? i sure as heck don`t. what a cheap way to try to outsell the competition sony. well, i guess as long as dumbarses buy them, then sony isnt stupid after all. (p.s. i love my media center on my xbox360 thanks microsoft!! turn on my computer with a remote how genious lol.)

    For the two arguing earlier, it is not 800 OR 400. Sony estimates the price will be 600 for the full, 60 GB model(still damn expensive if you ask me), and 500 for the 20 GB. http://www.gamespot.com/e3/e3story.html?...

    what nobody realises is that you dont just play against a computer or your mates, you can play against people from across the world which would be hard in real life, and in zelda you just swing it to the side, shake it, or press a button, you dont actually control the sword, like in red steel, it`s al pre-programmed, and you dont aim where you want to hit you "steer" the cursor around the screen
