did you ever think they are waiting for more games to come out (maybe they dont like the current) or maybe they want to be ready for halo 3?

I disagree, here are some games I personally have played and think are worth it:

Animal Crossing
Avatar
Blazing Angels
COD3
Elebits
Excite Truck
Mortal Kombat
Sonic
Super Monkey Ball
Zelda
Red Steel
Medal of Honor
Prince of Persia
Spider-Man 3
Tiger Woods

and then, of course: Wii Sports

The wii was impressive but i want to see next generation consoles.

I predict nintendo and microsoft coming out with something amazing, far superior to the wii.

I own a 360 and im saving up for a wii.. and if needed ill sell my 360 for a ps3 if alot of games come out for it.

That doesn't make sense, why would Sony do that?

That still doesn't make sense. There are CPU's from AMD and intel that have multiple cores and share memory (cache). So why aren't AMD or Intel getting sued?

because MS is telling all of these companies they can sue and they are providing top-paid lawyers for those companies.

Of course, because everyone has a conspiracy against you. They mysteriously unite to destroy everything you love. Because its far more likely that random people organize to hate you than the fact that they're simply doing something you don't like.
