I want to have your opinions, I'm sure that the majority of you know that future consol of nintendo will be the Wii.
I'm going to buy it , i would like the PS3 or The Xbox360 but i can't it's so expensive.
So the question which i wonder each time is :

Next TR 8-9..... Will be on PS3-xbox360 , but what about the Wii ???? :confused:

I'm not really sure if TR on Wii is such a good idea. With all that motion-sensor crap it will surely flop.

I like the Wii and it's control system, but I doubt any of the popular XB and PS franchises will be available on that console...
And games are what sells consoles...
So I'm going for PS3...

As for your question: I doubt it, maybe TR8 will later appear on Wii, as legend did on GC

I'm saying that TR on Wii would flop. The console itself looks very promising. :)

the motion-sensor feature lookls prettey good with sports games and stuff.

I like the idea of using a game controller as a golf club or a tennis racket

this video gives a good insight on what the motion-sensoring controllers will be like

i'm excited about the wii. it seems nintendo is marketing it to two types of people. those who don't want to pay through the nose for a game system and those who want a 2nd system but don't want to pay the kind of money it takes to get an xbox or ps3. it's really genius, but i'm not sure if wii will get TR. there's just no way to know. but i did play "the prophecy" on GBA so at least nintendo has some sort of dialogue with eidos. it would be fun to play on the wii and i hope it happens.

Yup, but it's worth it... The most advanced console to date, probably will have best games (PS always does), I don't have a PS or PS2, so I'll buy some good old games as well, it includes the Blu-ray player, etc.

the ps3 does have a motion-sensing controller but not one that's as advanced as the wii's. and the wii will sell for $249US. that's much less that the $600 for the PS3.

You'll be able to get a normal control pad for the Wii.


I'll probably get a Wii and I'm looking forward to Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii Sports and many other games (my mind's gone blank at the moment, but they're are a lot I'd like).

I'm not too sure that TR will be coming on Wii. It'll probably come onto PS3 and Xbox 360 plus the PC offcourse.

You said that the 360 and PS3 cost to much? Why don't you wait until the price goes down then buy one of those consoles? Or, Save up. Like I'm doing. I'm saving for a new console. I'm not too sure which one. But, Hopefully a PS3.

Eidos is not angry on Nintendo (trl is out for gc), I think ps and xb are more profitable consoles and the player profile that plays on them is the player profile that is more likely to play a game like tomb raider...

Well that's fine then... I just thought you were saying "not next gen" in a negative way. I mean (by saying it is Next Gen) that I think it can hold it's own against the other 2 in terms of great games--and games that couldn't be made in previous generations. But obviously Nintendo isn't marketing directly against Sony or MS, so that approach (in his statement) isn't surprising. :)
