i havent gotten to play one yet, they always have them at target, but never have the controller out, they always have them at the video game stores as well, and never have controllers out. id like to play one, but id never buy one, if i wanna fish, ill go out and fish, if i wanna play a video game, ill play a video game.

but if they were to put a banjo-kazooie game out for wii...id get one.

I didn't buy the wii to fish James, but I can see you are a Sony fanboy.

James
01-08-2007, 10:23 PM
naw not at all, nintendo is my first love, i just wish they stayed true to the games that made the 64 so great. Banjo, 1080, Golden Eye, Super Smash Brothers, Bust a Move, Ken Griffey Baseball, Paper Mario, Star-Fox, all the old star wars games, man i loved all those games. i still got all those games and still play them every now and then.

kevolution
01-08-2007, 10:35 PM
In that case James you'll be glad to know that they are working on the classic Goldeneye from 64 and updating it with new weapons and such for a wii game you can buy online!

James
01-08-2007, 10:36 PM
if the price goes down, i may get one, and shit if they made a new Turok...dude that would be ****ing SICK!!!

Thats cause you have to ask the clerks for the controller. What most places do is take your credit card or your driver's liscence and hold it in the mean time while you try the Wii.

James
01-08-2007, 11:11 PM
Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong 64, Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing, Star Wars Battle For Naboo...come to think about it, is there a system that had better games then the 64?

Yip. It's a free Opera browser. I was even able to stream video from rcf too.
It's no mouse and keyboard, but it wasn't too annoying to browse with the wiimote.

Can you read text fine on a normal TV, or do you have a Plasma/DPL/etc...

i had picture of rcf that i took while i was surfing the net on the PS3. its a pain to type though, its basically like texting.

It's readable on a regular tv, but sometimes depending on the site it can be hard to make out. It's def not practical, but it is a bonus to be able to stay on the couch and check a score or something.

One of these days I will finally get to purchase one of these. I'm pretty frustrated with the whole ordeal, but it's also my fault since I'm not willing to stand in line in the freezing cold and wait for one.

James
01-09-2007, 02:09 PM
good question...does the wii have any USB ports? i know the PS3 has 4 of them, and then the Flash Drive and SD port. if it doesnt, im sure nintendo will come out with some kind of wireless keyboard for Wii only. I still need to hook up my Bluetooth headset to my PS3, but its sort of a pain in the ass.

Yes James 2 Usb ports on the back.
It has 4 controller ports for Gamecube controllers on the top when you lify open a little door. SD slot on the front for extra storage, although it does come with some built in flash memory.

No word yet of mouse and keyboard, but thats probably only in time.

the 480p thing is the only place where I think nintendo screwed up here. I know there is a massive difference between 480i and 480p, but within 2 years so much of the population will have HD sets, and the games on the wii will look pretty sketchy compared to the other games. Granted looks are not everything, but I would have thought they would have tried to incorporate true HD to the system.

If they do a Mario Kart, then I'd want one.

Not so sure yet James. I haven't dl/purchased any games yet. But like I said they are tweaking goldeneye so most likely some stuff has been upgraded a little bit. The only thing I know is that they fixed the speed of SMB and made it faster.

yo Kev...the arcade for the PS3...man they need to work on it...you can only download it for the PSP, you cant play them on the PS3, so say you wanna download Tekken 2 or Syphon Filter 2...you download it for like $5 then get a Sony Memory Stick and put that on the Stick then play it on your PSP. all ive been able to download is Demo games, i had NBA 07 and an F-1 racing game.

whats the deal with the Wii's way of doing this?

Mandingo
01-24-2007, 07:43 PM
Can download to a memory card but you get to play the full game right on the Wii. Only downside is that you can't use a credit card to do it. Have to go to the store and purchase wii bucks then take that card back home and shop. I don't have any wii bucks and don't feel like going out tonight so it looks like im SOL on playing the first mario.:(

eh thats prolly better then putting your credit card info out there. sounds alot like itunes.

Mandingo
01-24-2007, 08:08 PM
Yeah but someone like me would spend more if i had the option of using my credit card then having to run to the store to get a card to play the vintage games. Right now i see about 5 or 6 that i would buy in a heart beat but now i gotta wait and i'll probably never make it up to the store unless there is something else i need from there. I think they are gonna lost out a bit because of that.

Thats weak James...but ya gotta remember Sony's online service is free, and ya get what ya pay for. But give them some time, afterall they are new to the online experience unlike Xbox.

Oh and this Saturday the wii news channel is supposed to debut. The news will be delivered like the Weather Channel, on a map. Should you want the local news in a specific location, you select it on the map.

Dingo, I hear ya about Wii bucks or whatever it's called. I think Nintendo might be just trying to protect people. The wii friend codes have to be entered each time a new game is played. Supposed to protect kids from pervs. At least that's what I have heard.

Go to www.monoprice.com. Buy an HDMI cord for like 20 bucks. You'll get the best possible picture that way. Don't ever buy HDMI in a retail store, they will screw you. Basically there is no real difference in the cables, all that is sent through them is 1's and 0's.

What i've heard is that if you played it before, it's not that different, but if you haven't played it yet it's pretty cool. I'm sure it's pretty similar to the PS2 version graphically wise. I just think it's kind of nice how the melee action commands are set up with you using your hands and such.

I agree. The only thing I used the PS3 for is NBA2k7 and after playing that for months, it got boring. And theres no other games out there that appealing to me to purchase.

I already wasted money on some crappy games for that system. like that Off Road racing game and Sonic the hedgehog. Those games sucked

Spiderman 3 is ok, but I can see myself getting bored with that game real fast.

I believe it's 1 player on the Wii and the PS3, you can play as New Goblin and someone else, maybe "Venom". According to the workers at EB Games, it's much better on the PS3 than the Wii.

Stay away from the 360 dude....Im telling you, it's a cash pit. One problem after another with that thing.

Had my 360 since the day they dropped and have had ZERO problems.
Cash pit? Not sure what one of those is but MS gives you a year warranty and pays for shipping and sends you the pkg to ship it back if for some reason your 360 breaks. I'm about to get the black elite and have two working 360's soon.

As for the P$3 and your nonsense....how many more years does Sony need to make some good PSP games? I have had that thing since 2004 and so far most games suck. The best game for it has a rating of 8.5.
Like I said P$3 is not dead yet but it is losing the console battle.

Wii is great for gatherings, drinking with friends and get togethers, but majority of my time is spent on 360.

As for crappy games...I suggest a subscription to Gamefly. I rent 2 games at a time for $21 a month for any system, keep them as long as I want and send them back. And if you really like a game you can keep it and buy it for a lower price. A great service!

Mac
05-18-2007, 08:58 PM
Why would anyone want the PSP? Thats your fault for being stupid and buying a hand held.

Microsoft also does not pay shipping, I know. Ive sent the thing in three times already. I dont know a single person that hasnt had to send it in atleast once because of the red light of terror.

James
05-18-2007, 09:02 PM
p$3? lame, who gives a **** how much it is, you think its to much, dont buy it.

Glen Infante
05-19-2007, 12:25 AM
I think I just fell in the hype of saying that I owned a PS3. About 3 months ago, if you said that you owned one, you are put into baller status. Sucks now because the thing is in stock at almost every electronic store. It's no longer the coveted system as it was a few months ago.

I still enjoy it though. The graphics on some of the games are so awesome that it's hard to really call it crap. Even though the price is steep, I'd prefer the PS3 over the XBox only because I am comfortable with the controller.

Mac
05-19-2007, 09:14 AM
The controller isnt that much different, it didnt take me long to get used to.

The Xbox has cool games, NHL2k7, NBA2k7, NCAA basketball 2k7, Rainbox Six, Vegas...those are the games I play the most.

TyGuy
06-17-2007, 01:34 AM
Its all about the pc gaming but I do enjoy playing wii with my little brother. Whats nice is the pure backwards compatibility with game cube games since its hardware is very similar to the cubes. Been playing a lot of smash brothers melee lately with him

Hopefully it gets some better games soon, Mario party 8 supposedly feels like it was a gamecube game to start and later tacked on wii functions.

So mario party 9, mario galaxy and the new smash brothers is what i want to play, same goes for paper mario.
