Dingaling Du Jour

Today, it's Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft's Entertainment & Devices Division, for the following comment on the Wii in this interview on eWeek.com:
The challenge they have is that third parties aren't going to make much money on this platform because Nintendo is going to make all that money, and their ability to compete with something like a Halo or produce an experience like Madden on their system is going to be tough. They don't have the graphics horsepower that even Xbox 1 had. So it makes sort of the comparison set a little bit difficult.

Really Robbie?

Because I see that Madden '07 is available for the Wii now. I see that Madden '08 will be available for the Wii in August of this year.

Tiger Woods '07? In stock now Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam? In stock now.

For fighting games, it's a little weak, but Mortal Kombat Armageddon ain't Stick Figures on graph paper either. And I'm pretty sure that Rayman Raving Rabbids on the Wii pwns the Xbox 360 version. Ooh, throw a cow by moving a control on an Xbox controller. Whee. Damn. I simply must experience that. So that I can play Rayman like every other game plays on the Xbox 360. Wow.

Sure, the Xbox has games the Wii doesn't. Guitar Hero springs to mind. But then again, there's no Zelda or Metroid on the 360. So it all works out.

Once again, you have someone from Microsoft running a major division of that company who's either too lazy to actually be up on the competition, or too arrogant to think that anyone actually checks a fact anymore. Yo Robbie, stop assuming that all writers are as lazy as Le Scoble. Nincompoop.
