Must resist urge to rant...
*rolls will save*
I think Nintendo is far from its decline... More than three franchises keep the company alive, and those three are far from dead.
First of all, Mario isn't dead or anything close to it. Remakes and spin-offs? What do you expect sequels to games be, when you boil it down? Almost ANY game in a series could be defined as a remake of one of the others. If they couldn't, then they aren't in the same series. I believe the Mario series does a good job of keeping variety in the games as new games come out. As for the spin-offs, I have to testify that Mario Tennis is one of the most addicting games you will ever play.
Zelda is FAR from being dead, too. I'll let TP testify to that.
I haven't really played the FPS Metroid games, but I can speak for the 2-D ones. I'll say this: I had A LOT more fun playing Metroid: Zero Mission than Metroid 2 for the original Gameboy.
Eh, I can see Starfox going down, although I only seriously played the 64 one. Can't really speak on this issue.
Pokemon will probably keep going, if it goes down, it will be because of all of the negative stigma that it is a stupid kid game, a reputation it doesn't deserve.
Fire Emblem. Not dead, I thought PoR was one of the best ones.
These mentioned franchises aside, Nintendo has some newer ones, and is constantly adding more. Pikmin is a good, fresh series, and Nintendo is starting to move the Tales series in from Japan, which is a very good series (I would have thought zelosjr would have mentioned that o.0)
Now... as for PS3 vs. Wii. First of all, just to be clear, you can make a slideshow with your photos. However, as for this and all the extra features on both the PS3 and the Wii, I say this: when I buy a console, I want a video game. All the other stuff is nice, but I'd rather have a great console than a so-so one that plays DVDs and displays photos. As for graphical power of the PS3 and the Wii, same thing, great graphics are nice, but it is a video GAME, not a video SHOW, and I'd rather have a console with great games than a console with great graphics.
