Stephen Fry On The Wii’s Popularity
TV wit and digital explorer Stephen Fry recently write a review of the Wii for the Guardian. While it pretty much helps the layman get to grips with the video game console, this paragraph might be of interest to the gaming trendster:
Nintendo’s recrudescence is yet further proof that the market (ie the population) wants machines that don’t frighten, but befriend. The snarling roars of the feral Xbox and the brutal PlayStation are impressive, but Nintendo understands that while play does involve competition, territoriality and rehearsal for war, it also involves silliness, laughter and fun.
