2008 really looks to be a bleak year for the Wii. The only titles talked about for upcoming release has been really bleak. The Nintendo IP's such as Animal Crossing, new Kirby title, Star Fox, F-Zero, etc.. have yet to appear on Wii but beyond the same franchises that they have used over and over again console generation after generation you wonder what else Nintendo has? Kid Icarus from Factor 5? New Zelda title? Hopefully Nintendo can ride on the success of Super Smash Bros. until early 09 when they will have some decent first party titles worth purchasing.

2008 is shaping up to be possibly the greatest year in the history of gaming. The PS3 is gaining major momentum after winning the HD format wars with HD-DVD and also gaining steam with a dogpile of first and third party titles. I would probably go to PS3 this year, as it did to 360 last year. Either way its a great year to be a gamer.
