After the honeymoon: the Nintendo Wii

Ars Technica posted an interesting article yesterday on their site. They write about how they feel about the Wii after having it for almost two months. Was it all hype, do they still like the special controls, do they still believe it the Wii….

Part from the article:

Just like the PlayStation 3, the Wii’s honeymoon is over. Now that we’ve become accustomed to looking at the same face every morning, is the Wii still fresh and exciting? Most important, after two months of play, is the Wiimote still as exciting and refreshing as it was back in November?

(As you can see, they are not in Europe… as we still have no PlayStation 3) The whole article can be found here at Ars Technica and it is worth reading.

I got to agree pretty much with all they write in the article. The Wiimote still feels great; the kids still love to play on the Wii. But I wish that some of the games were more kids friendly. The last game I got was Rayman 4: Raving Rabbids and the kids love it but it often ends with me sitting and playing for them. Guess I need to give Wario Ware: Smooth Moves a try as next game.

Sure would be great with some more online games or at least some more player vs player interaction. Sending Mii’s to your friends are not as fun as it used to be and right now there is not much else you can do really. Sure we got the weather channel and soon we will have the News Channel. Oh, we already got a news channel on the TV, such as BBC and CNN ;) But I’m still looking forward to give the News Channel a try.

I would expect Nintendo to tell a LOT of Wii’s this year; yes, I know PlayStation 3 is coming at the end of March, so what ??? I compared the price to the Wii; you got to pay just about 2.5 times the price of a Wii to get a PlayStation 3. No doubt that the PS3 is way more powerful than the Wii and yes, you might get what you pay for; maybe more than 2.5 times Wii. But that does not really matter if you don’t have the cash or if you are not willing to spend that much for a ‘game console’. I have to say, would like to have a PS3 to give it a try but there is no way I can afford one for a long time.

Anyway, I still need to complete Zelda & Rayman for Wii ;-) and more Virtual Console games to get.
