Crappy as in?
Its cheaper than the other two cause it doesn't have all the other internal components that make the 360 and PS3 do multiple tasks, its simply a gaming device, not an all-in-one powerhouse, and its an easy to use and play device, so anyone that can do little flicks of the wrist can pick it up and play (when i get one I'm looking forward to getting my Nana and grandad on it and see how they go!).
And i have played with one in store and i must say the Wii-mote does feel light and a bit empty compared to my Xbox remote, but that doesn't mean its cheaply built.
The parts are crap and are cheap compared to the parts in the other 2 so yes that would make it cheaply built since the parts are drastically cheaper then the parts needed for the other 2 systems.
Ok, just cause it is cheaper, does not mean that its made of crap parts, like the DS Lite is cheaper than the PSP, but it doesn't feel cheap and "crappy" (Its made in the same design as the Wii, and as far as i can tell, more or less the same materials too), nor has it fallen apart on me, and trust me, i manhandle my electrical equipment!
Ok, to anyone here that owns a Wii, has it fallen apart, or do you feel that is made from "crappy" parts?!?!
Typical nintendo fanboy never listens... The parts are crap,
Wii uses a 2002-2003 processor that no one knows even the clock rate or FSB or L2 of it, rumored to be clocked at 729 mhz but no confirmation from Nintendo on this.
Ps3- 3.2 Ghz with 512mb L2 Cache and a 25.6 GB/s FSB
360- 3.2 Ghz with 1gb and a 21.6 Gb/s FSB
Wii- whats this? Nintendo will not give release notes on what its clocked at? Why would they do that to themselves? Rumored to be clocked at 243 mhz but again no confirmation from Nintendo on this.
Ps3- 256mb NVIDIA G70 with 256mb of VRAM for the graphics card itself and clocked at 700mhz
360- ATI Xenos 256mb clocked at 500mhz 10 mb of VRAM
On Board RAM-
Wii- 88mb wow...
Ps3- 256 MB of Rambus XDR DRAM decent amount... could use 512
360- 512 MiB of 700 megahertz GDDR3 RAM on a 128-bit bus
Wii- Stereo - Dolby Pro Logic II-capable... wow how out of date
Ps3- 7.1 digital audio, Dolby TrueHD, and many other sound and audio capabilitys
360- 5.1-channel Dolby Digital surround sound with 32bit processing
Wii- 512mb of flash storage oooo scary though the SD cards are pretty useful,
Ps3- 20gb - 60gb harddrives, ethernet, usb 2.0 capable with flash drives, bluetooth 2.0, HDMI 1.3 capable of from 480i up to 1080p
360- 12x DVD drive, 20gb detachable harddrive, usb 2.0, now capable of 1080p
So yea as you can see the other 2 systems have parts that are quite costly and shows as to why they are at the prices they are and comparing parts by parts the Wii is 1 generation behind on hardware.
Edit: also I never said anything about parts falling apart of anything of the PSP or DS, please do not bring in a new conversation when we are clearly not talking about those devices.
