I find it hilarious that you use Epic as an example seeing as they hate the Wii and you love it.
In some interview one of their top guys was asked if they would be making any Wii games and he said "We're trying to move gaming forwards not backwards."
That's pretty brutal.
Not sure why you find that hilarious. I love the Wii, but I also really like my PS3 and will eventually get to like my 360. Me liking the Wii has nothing to do with Epic and their stance on the PC industry. They've gone out and said that the market is dying and that their future is in the (mainly) 360 and PS3.
Now, as for their comments on the Wii, I could give a shit what they say about it. Epic has been around for a very long time, and aside from their technology that they lend out to people, what have they done? Gears of War is their big crowning achievement, and as far as I'm concerned their one game doesn't prove anything to me as far as being a brilliant developer. I was never into Unreal Tourney, and as it turns out, seems like not many people are into the series anymore considering the latest UT was pretty much a bomb. UT comes out on the 360 soon, but I highly doubt people are going to migrate from Halo 3 and CoD4 to UT. So Epic has been around for ages and their essentially a two hit wonder. Look into their past and what have they done? Shitty shareware computer games like the totally lame ass Jazz the Jack Rabbit. (And I know its lame because I bought it back in the day). Long story shot, Epic likes to talk a lot of shit, but they have no room to talk anything. When they start to create entire industries and new avenues for gaming, then I'll listen to their Nintendo smack talk. Considering their history, they have nothing on Nintendo. Nothing.
On a side, I went over to TRU yesterday and snagged 360 component cables and Perfect Dark Zero for 13 bucks total. PDZ was already marked down to 5 bucks, and when I got to the register they knocked off an additional 20%. The cables were marked down to 10 and they also knocked 20% off that too. TRU usually has some sweet deals, and I found plenty of cool stuff for cheap there in the past. I also took a walk over to Gamestop (my car was getting worked on at a Sears thats in the area so I had time to kill) and snagged The Castlevania Adventure for the original Gameboy for 2 dollars. Pretty sure all their GB games are finally like 50% off and I saw Ninja Gaiden: Shadow, Battletoads, and a few others. Might have to go back and snatch them up for next to nothing.
