Since its release in 2006, Nintendo's Wii has marked its place in gaming history. After the release of the Gamecube (which had some good games) many thought that Nintendo was over. Microsoft had entered the gaming market with the Xbox, and now the Xbox 360 (which is lacking in sales) and Sony's Playstation was feeling like the new king. However, PS3 sales were low at first, thanks to it's steep price and lacking number of games (this has all changed now, though)
But even two years on, the Wii is the top seller month after month after month. And it is for a good reason. I own every games console – even consider myself a hardcore gamer, but I still play my Wii (which I have had since launch) every day and it still is brilliantly fun.
Next year, Some pretty exciting additions are coming. Wii Motion-Plus is going to further revolutionize motion controls, and with the release of Wii Sports 2 is imminent.
One other thing, 2008 saw the release of Wii Fit, Wii Music but I do feel that the Wii still lacks the release of enough top quality AAA titles, sure, I still play Resident Evil 4, Wii Sports, even Mario Party or Mario Kart when friends are over, but Im hoping that Nintendo has some big things planned for next year, to ensure that my Wii will continue to see the love it does now.
