Malstrom's Blog

A while ago, I said some disparaging things about Sean Malstrom's blog, where I called him a fanboy.  I still hold that he is to some extent, but I find myself conceding points to him.  His latest article talks about how the PS3 and 360 are outrunning the market and appealing to high-end consumers, while the Wii is pointed squarely at the normal growth market.

It makes some sense.  As I've said, the Wii's hook was the motion control thing, but upgraded motion controls for other systems aren't going to bring about the death of the Wii.  It's priced right and it's got the right kind of games that appeal to a broader spectrum of people, and then Nintendo can move back upmarket.  Good points, all.
