GameDaily dares confront the hype tsunami with an opinion piece detailing why the Wii will ultimately fail to deliver on its promises. We summarize (and oversimplify) their editorial:

  • Lack of software support
  • Inferior graphics (and yes, graphics really do matter)
  • Wii remote control scheme is clumsy in some situations
  • GameCube's lackluster sales translate into fewer loyal customers
  • Wii price advantage won't last

Here at Joystiq, we're actually divided on the extent to which Nintendo's new console will deliver on its lofty goals. At least we're starting to see some balanced coverage thrown into the mix. Devil's advocates keep us all honest.
