    Default Wii Owners Don't Care About HD Graphics

    http://www.dailytech.com/Wii+Owners+...ticle17422.htm

    Nintendo of America CEO Reggie Fils-Aime has been talking about the streaming service that is coming to the Wii.

    Reggie went on CNBC and said that Wii owners won't miss the HD content available on the other game consoles via Netflix that the Wii won’t be capable of streaming. He said, " …there is really no loss for the Wii consumer."

    He continued saying, "But, even more importantly than that, the consumer has voted. Over 26 million consumers have bought a Wii. The consumer is saying, for them, the quality of the visual is not nearly as important as the overall entertainment, the overall value of that experience and that is really, what has propelled us. In terms of what the future holds, we’ve gone on record to say the next step for Nintendo in terms of home consoles will not be simply to make it HD, but to add more and more capability and we’ll do that when we totally tapped out all of the experiences for the existing Wii and we are nowhere near doing that yet."
    The article basically says, Wii doesn't care because half the population is too stupid to support technological advancement. I've played the Wii a few times, and honestly when it comes down to it: it gets old quick. Also games are either good or just plain suck.

    Not a surprise. No hardcore gamer uses a Wii anyways, the precision just isn't there. It's quite cumbersome for "real" gaming. But for "fun/party" games, it doesn't need to be precise, and it's fine.

    What a stupid comment he makes. Because consumers have chosen a device that doesn't support HD, doesn't mean they don't want HD content! If they did more thorough research, I wonder how many Wii owners have another console (or gaming PC), then again, I don't think they'd want to know...
