I'm into straitegy and simulation. A console serves me very poorly. I want more our of a game than just entertainment. Knowledge or trying out historical what ifs. Console games have no depth.
Came across this article on Gizmodo.
Is is about the games or cost of console? I think you ultimately get what your inner circle of friends already own. I'm not a fan of the the "Wii" but I think it's popular partial on price but mostly based on what they just played at their friends house the other nice. That goes for kids but mostly adults who are really not gamers in your traditional sense. The Nintendo Wii is like a piece of gum that explodes with flavor and not even one minute later all the flavor is gone. ;-( This topic has been hammered to death like the iPhone but hell, what's one more article.
