i think the Wii caters to the non-serious gamers in general so i don’t really think XBox360/PS3 have to worry about getting market share from them. if anything the Wii has to worrry because of stuff like Kinect which has already sold 2.5 million units which i am sure will take a bite out of Wii’s main strengths.
but i guess one thing the Wii has going for it is that it’s already got quite a few games out there where as games for Kinect i suspect are close to zero right now.
me personally even though i got a XBox360 i don’t really think ill care about the Kinect simply because, even though it’s fairly powerful from what people say, i can’t actually see it being better than using a regular controller for most games ill actually like.
so basically i don’t even see the Kinect being even slightly worth getting into the foreseeable future and like i say those Kinect/Wii/Move type devices i think cater to a different type of gamer than the usual serious gamers.
but i think the Kinect has potential to actually be useful but only if someone actually takes advantage of it. as i think it’s selling well because of the initial ‘cool effect’ but once that wears off, without the quality games it will be a $150 dollar dust collecting device.
