USA Today keeps it simple and declares the Wii a winner

0

In true USA Today underreporting form, the colorful everyman's paper says that because of Internet chatter and common sense launch stats, the Wii is the winner and will get the cookie. Lacking any true facts of substance, the USA Today's alarmist headline could sway those on the fence of ignorance to pick up the Nintendo Wii. Truck stop diner crowds cheer in unison:

David Nieves, 26, of Philadelphia gives the Wii an A-. "Nintendo has definitely gotten it right." He and friends spent most of the first day golfing, boxing, bowling and playing baseball. The games "were a blast."

Assessments were harsher for the PS3. Ray McLean, 34, of Brooklyn, N.Y., rates the PS3 an A but gives the games a B "because many of the launch titles were pushed back to later dates." He wanted to see aerial combat game Warhawk, for one, because it would take full advantage of the motion-sensitive controller. But connected to his 42-inch HDTV, "I'm surprised at how good (the games) look, given that they are first-generation games."

Brett Conlon, 26, of Fairfax, Va., gives the PS3 a B- because of the system updates needed before playing games, going online and playing multiplayer games. "I will say, however, that Resistance: Fall of Man shows a lot of potential. The Blu-ray player has amazing clarity (compared with) a regular DVD."

In a final death blow, the USA Today rounds up the piece with a final grade by uber popular gaming magazine Entertainment Weekly. Soccer moms may be pleased to know that the mag "gave the Wii a B+ and PS3 a B."
