    B) yes because they will be less popular so they will try to upgrade there systems.

    C) the pro thing is that you can take it every where and the con is that they copied off the psp but i think its fair because they copied the wii.

    A) I don’t think they will because they just tried to copy of many things. but they should have stuck with the game boy or DS.

    B)No because it looks just like any regular old control like the x box or play station the controls the same with a screen. if they want those just buy a psp that’s $129.99 or the psp go.

    C)It looks cool cause of the design and how comfortable it is just like a regular control. but it rips off the psp and psp go that most people have and thats why they might not buy it.

    A) Nintendo would have an advantage because they are going to depend on when they release it to get more sells. When this happens, they will dominate the market of games.

    B) I say that they wouldn’t upgrade to it because it is like making something that is already good to get worse. What I mean is that they could try to sell an upgrade through all the systems instead of doing all that.

    C) The good things are that it is portable and will have better graphics than a DS because on how big the screen is. The negative things are that it can break like a controller and that if you rage like some people do, you are just going to throw it to the ground. Another thing, it won’t be able to fit in your pocket.

    A. well to start it will be like a wii on to go. you can play HD games on a psp size game console. also we will be able to play our favorite games too. with the option to search the web for info or demos. it will be the future of games with wiis.

    B. yes because with the new buttons like a ps3 controller they might wanna add new games to play on it like black ops, ufc games and other nice games not on the original wii system.

    C. pros: it will be able to go with you no matter where you go, it will have a cool HD screen to watch movies with, and will be having upgrades with the future. cons: with its small size it can easily be broken by dropping it or can be lost, it could be scratched and not usable, and could get drinks spilled on it and make it explode!

    a) well because once they release this everybody will want to know how good its going to be or how well its going to work especially sense its hand held!

    b)most likely because when something gets old and isn’t any fun no more like the wii its great there coming out with a new one because the wii is getting old and the x box 360 upgraded to the connect its good to do that i just know somebody is going to have a suggestion to upgrade the Nintendo!

    c) pros. cons.
    -could be fun to play with -might be expensive
    -can go anywhere with it traveling – could brake if dropped!

    why i say the pros like it could be fun to sit there and be able to play it whenever you want and might have better games coming out

    i say the cons because they are problems to some people you could be clumsy all the dang time and just drop it! or you might not be able to afford it!?

    A.) They have an advantage over Xbox360 because they have a bigger franchise then Microsoft in the gaming industry. They might have an advantage over Sony with the PS3 because they have better motion plus games which people can enjoy while getting exercise.

    B.) Yeah because with the way people liked the first Wii they will most likely want the new one to. But now it has old version controller gaming included for Wii games.

    C.) One con about this gaming system is that people won’t want to use the motion controller as much as they had to with the first Wii. A pro about this gaming system is that it is cooler and better for Nintendo.

    A.) i don’t think that it will have an advantage over ps3 or x box 360 because it looks just like a regular controller. Nothing much is very different. Only thing is that it has a screen on the controller. Yes, this is new and people will buy it when it comes out but it does not have ANY advantages over 360 or ps3.

    B.) i think some people might want to upgrade it if they are not fascinated by it or if they just don’t like it. Some people would want to keep it the way it is. I would have to play it and see how it works and how to play and then i would know if i would upgrade it.

    C.)

    A. I think it might have an advantage, because they’ve already have all these other kinds of games that were so popular. Also, because it is a newer game.

    B. I think they might. It is pretty close to the original though. I do think people will probably upgrade because it is different and more high tech.

    C. One con is in the original wii you can move, but this one has a controller, and people I think would rather move. One pro is that the wii2 has HD and people would like that more.

    B. Yes. They will like to upgrade because it is the newest thing coming out. Also because the controllers or better then the X-Box controller, and it has a screen built in to it.

    C. Some PROS are:
    1. It has a better controller with better graphics.
    2. It has better connections to be online.
    Some CONS are:
    1. They cost a lot more money then the X-Box and PS3, that means a lot of people might can’t afford it.
    2. It might break easy, or can be hard to handle.

    A) i think that nintendo will have an advantage over the other technologys because it looks like its way better made then the rest of the things made.

    B) i think that yes because they want it to look and be made better with everything advanced like the graphics and how its designed.

    C) 1 good thing about it is that its easy to play and control and most of the other systems are like a little hard to control because the buttons are so far apart that sometimes you can barely reach it and this systems has the buttons so near by that you can easily reach them.

    A. I think it might have an advantage, because they already have all these other kinds of games that were so popular. Also, because it is a newer game so kids would like it alot more since it’s new.

    B. I think they won’t upgrade because it’s almost the same as the original. Also, they are coming out with different games for ps3, xbox, etc; and kids won’t want to have a Nintendo since it’s old.

    C. It’s just like the wii but it has a controller on it. Also, it’s different because it’s not like the other video games.
