Re: well, someone did it...

its not neccisarily the wii mote, its just the fact of using a laser pointer/point and click type of device that draws attention. the wii mote is pretty much the only thing out right now that can do that.

For that kind of thing he would have had to crack the console.

Wii graphics might be inferior to the 360 or PS3 but the game play is far and away more impressive to me and I think the Wii delivers in this department. I could care less if Nintendo was still 2D, if it's still fun (which some of the old games still are and always will be) it's the console I'm going to buy.

PS3 and xbox 360's graphics will soon be outdated by PC gaming standards within a year or two.

but in my opinion, graphics dont make a game fun.

thats why in my honest opinion, the winner of the console wars is the DS. 2d gaming ftw.

The problem with PC gaming is, as soon as you get your PC built to the latest specs to handle the latest and best game, BOOM its out of date, and you feel like you have to upgrade again until you do then repeat... with consoles... you know you'll continue to get quality games for a few years, til the next best console is released... and until then no need to upgrade

not neccisarily, he is just running a smaller computer through the usb in the 360 with all of the right coding and firmware and what-not.

negative ghostrider.

even my old setup could play any of the newer games at their best levels (that was my 3800+, 1gb ddr, 7800GToc). as time progresses and graphical capabilities increase, you might not be able to play the newest games at full graphical capability, but you can still play them none the less. my buddy still runs quake4 at maximum (not ultra) with his peuney 6800gs and his 1.8ghz dell. hell you can probably build a budget PC for the price of a PS3 or 360e and play the most current and upcoming games at ps3 or 360 graphics levels for the next year or two, about the same amount of time before the PS3/360 start showing their inability to grow as technology doubles every 18 months.

people who are crazy insane about pc's and use them often can justify keeping up with the newest stuff. plus if you build it right, you might only have to replace one component a year, maybe one year its the 3d card, the next you throw a few more gigs of ram. get a motherboard with the socket that is going to be used in the years to come and youll be set there. This is what i like about PC's, you can grow as things become better, one step at a time. so as developers increase their abilities to run higher graphics and resolutions in accordance with expanding PC capabilities, they have to start dumbing down those features to work on consoles. i mean hell, when Quake4/Doom3, Prey, HL2E1 came out in all their graphical splendor, the closest thing graphically on any console was Halo2.

the only reason theres no games out right now to test the limits of PC's is because all the developers were paid off for the past year or two do make next-gen console games only. Bioshock, HL2:E2 and Crisis are among a few coming soon that will work your PC.

Re: well, someone did it...

I especially hate the Wii remote for FPS games.

Everything else is cool, but aiming like that is a constant ***** and your arm gets tired too quickly as you're trying to dick around with it.

Mouse for me please.

I still play nearly any game I want and my pc is nearly 3 years old and when I built it... it was out dated then.
