    Lots of good theories. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. I personally think this generation will be much better for them then GameCube. I expect things to pick up greatly for Nintendo.

    Please dont troll in here, its ok to voice your opinions. But if you don't like Nintendo (which we already know who doesn't), you dont have to post in here.

    It hardly could have been worse for Gamecube though (yeah before you through around sales figures and say how it made a profit, remember how cheap it was to make in the first place and still took third place).

    I just don't see Nintendo ever being serious competition for the big 2 ever again. Of course, I could be wrong....

    The DS's success isn't exactly a shock, it's just "The Next Gameboy" and "Gameboy" is a popular brand.

    The N64 and Gamecube were terrible consoles (GC especially) so Nintendo has a LOT more work ahead of them than just using a remote.

    no it was a shock, considering how when it first came out. alot of people said the system wouldnt work and the "gimmick" of it would get old fast. and the n64 sold well also when it was out. who honestly didnt play golden eye.

    I STILL say it's a gimmick and brought by people who assume it's the new game boy (which it is, really, in name or not).

    I mean you have what, 2, 3 good games? Or not 'good' even, just popular ones (Metroid, Nintendogs....and.....um....).

    I wonder if there will be a Wiikipedia.

    Do elaborate on how N64 and Gamecube are terrible consoles.

    Yeah, I can't enjoy Mario 64 b/c I'm 16. You're totally right:rolleyes:

    Goldeneye is pretty overrated. But the best FPS game of last gen was on the N64.

    In todays society thats acceptable, whirling around a remote to block attacks or shooting a basketball is a different story.

    How is it any different:confused: People aren't going to be waving the controller all over the place. People who have used it say it works as well with a flick of the rest as it does with the wave of an arm.
