Rantoid: PConsoles

Maybe this sounds like unnecessary whining, but I don't like the idea of buying a system that is supposed to continue to serve my needs throughout a generation and then having to worry about it being replaced by anything more than an aesthetic redesign. Not only do console upgrades cause unease amongst consumers, but the lack of a console set in stone can limit developers' creativity; look at how many developers have made comments about the lack of a built-in 360 hard drive. So to this end, I would like to applaud Nintendo for their Wii distribution decisions so far. Unlike the 360 and PS3, the Wii is available in a single, rigid SKU; there are no plans for a update/redesign and there probably won't be one, considering how hot the current sales are. Perhaps part of the Wii's appeal is its simplicity of use; no bigger than a DVD player, it is the definition of plug-and-play. Apparently, I'm not the only one who values this trait in consoles.

Necros is a child trapped in a man's body, one reason why he's unemployed. He is a student at Syracuse University and a regular on Failcast.
