When I first heard about new game console Wii I thought it would face the same end as “interactive movies” – bad. I thought the new Wii controller wouldn’t be user friendly. I thought it would be way too strange to use.
Today I think quite the opposite. I heard Finnish people – who had given a chance to test Wii – saying that the controller actually works, and is fun to use. I also read a story that says Wii selling millions: “We will sell everything we make, so now it’s a manufacturing thing”. Same time PlayStation 3 is in trouble: Because of logistic problems they couldn’t manage to get enough consoles to stores in Japan and many people are choosing Wii over PlayStation 3 because of the PS3 high price.
I really think Wii will be successful in the future – it already is. The games seem to be more about innovative ways to use the controller, so there might be room for indie game producers to start considering Wii as their target platform.
