Peter Moore amusingly says he is now going to get a Wii
"Well I hope my friend Reggie [Fils-Aime] sends me one, I don't know. [laughs] Look I was there when Iwata-san pulled out that thing. I was there in the front row in Tokyo... and I said [to myself] "You've got to give 'em kudos for trying." And I'm literally going to go over there tomorrow and try to find Reggie or find Perrin [Kaplan] and I think Mario's the game... if you've got to play one game it's Mario. I'm sure I'll get one. Right now I'm trying to get my Brain Age down [laughs]. Look, it's not partisan; I love what Nintendo is doing. They're in a different space... and there's this view now that you buy a 360 for Halo, Grand Theft Auto, Gears of War, all the other stuff we got going, and if you want Metroid, you want Zelda, you want Mario, you go get a Wii. And you put the two together and it's probably the same price as the PS3."
Well I know we've all heard of both Sony and Microsoft starting to say things like "after they buy our system, they will buy a Wii" and such. However this is the first time Peter Moore of Xbox360 fame has said that he was going to BUY one. You can also see that he already owns a DS as his "brain age" comment suggests. With both Sony and Microsoft "playing it safe" by supporting the Wii, things keep getting better for the little system(that might be more powerful than you think).
