Why did the Nintendo Wii fail?posted June 20th, 2021 at 4:42 PM I still enjoy it this many years later. Some games provide good exercises. I'm too poor to buy any good VR system but I'm not complaining.

WiiiiiiiiJun 21, 2021 at 9:15amYour post makes me want to buy one. It did not failJun 21, 2021 at 4:23pmThe Wii was a massive hit. Millions of units sold and Nintendo made profit on every one since they optimize gameplay over cutting edge graphics and therefore don't go on all in new chipsets.What failed is Wii U, because it had no killer application and kind of sucked powerwise and the new controller was heavy and not particularly fun to use. It didn’t die…Jun 21, 2021 at 4:39pmIt was just replaced by more advanced equipment. I had lots of fun with mine too, but I had to get rid of it when I moved into a smaller space. Great successJun 21, 2021 at 5:32pmI think Nintendo sold 100 million Wii’s. They’re still around and you can still play them! @Haha I remember thatJun 21, 2021 at 6:00pmIt was for children, that's why the graphics were so childlike. GranJun 21, 2021 at 8:36pmMy grandkids love playing one I kept packed away for years. Perfect for rainy days. Haha @hahaJun 22, 2021 at 3:38amNope. WiiFit was the biggest sell AnonymousJun 23, 2021 at 12:03amMy old roommate got one, spent a long time fiddling with his screen persona, then barely used it. People who want to exercise don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on a plastic box to do so. Use that money to buy a used bike or some badminton raquets. C.D.Jul 22, 2021 at 2:15amWhoever thought the Wii was a failure? The Wii was the exact opposite of a failure! Calling the Wii a failure is like calling the Disney Renaissance a failure. So what gives? Personal grudge or something?The person who started this thread has absolutely no idea what he's talking about... and likely thinks the world is flat.
