Gamecube/Nintendo
Both Game Informer and What Entertainment have some comments on the Wii today.

First up, Game Informer:

Also, there are a number of third party titles that could show some promise including Madden NFL 07, Red Steel, Rayman Raving Rabbids, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, and Tony Hawk?s Downhill Jam. Although there are a number of third party titles slated for launch, if developers take the same port approach they did with the Nintendo DS launch, those games will become the exact same quality the DS third party titles were ? crap. Just like the Nintendo DS had an original control scheme, the Wii is just as different and developers need to realize that immediately or their games will flop.

...

But for now, the future is made up of many of the same promises and hopes I had when the N64 and GameCube were announced. I just hope I don?t end up being disappointed once again.
And then WhatEntertainment come back with:

The worst thing that can happen to Nintendo is if players and developers start to see the system as nothing more than a one trick pony. ... The DS has already seen titles like Super Mario 64 of Mario Kart fail to take advantage of the dual or touch screen factors of the system, simply because neither feature would have added anything to the core experience. If developers find themselves heading back towards the classic controller, or gamers find all the titles are nothing more than graphically weaker versions of 360 titles with Wii-mote support bolted on, then Nintendo will very quickly find their beloved system relegated to the back corner of the games store, just as the GameCube is today.
Yeah. Rain on my parade, why don't you.
