The Nintendo Wii may be a more revolutionary device then people give it credit for. Maybe that is why the code name used to be "Revolution." Considering we know gamers desire social gaming experiences Nintedo has produced one of the more entertaining social expereinces around gaming. I recall a few years back at E3 several companies were touting game accessories that were small bats, golf clubs, boxing gloves etc. The accessories companied with the software literally let you play the game virtually. There were many problems with this mainly how in the world would I swing a baseball bat or golf club in my living room. None the less the expereince in that booth was great and I was engrossed. That is why when I first played the Wii I knew this was something big.
Nintendo has approached this new experience full on. I have all three new consoles and when friends come over we play the Wii the most. I truely believe the experience around the Wii and the revolutionary approach the controlers and sensor bar bring is the future of gaming and even more then gaming. It is a great start at a truely immersive expereince. I am looking forward to when developers really get their creative juices going and develop some titles that cause physical pain :)
