The Success of Wii

Seth Godin has a nice post on his blog about the Wii.

“Sony is losing hundreds of dollars on every one they sell, supply is limited and …people are getting shot in the frenzy to buy the game.”

“And yet Nintendo hums along, with great reviews, plenty of supply and a long-term hit on their hands.”

“What’s up?”

While Sony postures itself like an aging rockstar, promoting it’s overpriced, proprietary scheme for dominating your living room, Nintendo continues to focus on the gamer’s experience.  In the end, it’s the experience, not the technology that will win the devotion (and dollars) of gamers.

    That is very true I really thought the Wii works on so many levels because like you say gamers want to have an experience in the game and Nintendo may not be the strongest of the 3 console contenders but it is certainly the best for gameplay
