Seriously, is Nintendo that lazy that they need to port over games (from last generation, no less) to hype up their new console?
Yes, you are right. When people get new consoles, they should forget completely about their earlier gaming experiences: Sony and Microsoft are doing us a favor by letting us trade in our old consoles and give up the chance the play the majority of our favorite games of Last Generation.
Have you all played the Wii version of Twilight Princess anyways? Where you thrust to thrust, chop to chop, etc? The only thing I can think of them doing to make it better is full-body motions, and that just makes the player a complete hazard to themselves and others nearby (do you trust your 10 year old cousin / sibling / family member / friend to spin full-circle with an arm stretched out every time they want to do a spin attack?).
I find these console war things silly, because it's pretty obvious to tell who hasn't sat down to play a game on a console. "360 Controllers suck for fighting games." "That's funny, because you seem to be doing better playing SF4 on the 360 than the P-" "No I'm not!" What I tend to see: It was better before they ported it, controls for [x] suck compared to [y], [z] only has kiddy / grimdark / sports / jRPG games, shooters are meant for [a], etcetera. In the above: there tends to be no difference between ports besides stuff that can be unlocked, controls are often at least comparable / good enough that only the most die-hard nutjob would notice, said person doesn't actually look at the game selection but instead what their local Walmart / K-Mart / Etc. has, the person is trying to defend a specific game's platform / argue against it being put on one they don't own...
