    Question Should the Wii be called a toy?

    Many folks and developers have branded the Wii as a toy. But do you think this is fair or does the Wii have the right to be called a games console? Let us know!

    Add the entry "All video game systems are toys" unless you install linux on it or some home-brew not used for entertainment.

    I like to think of consoles as more than toys, i consider the 360/PS3 more like gadgets because of the extra features.
    The only saving grace for me voting not sure is the ability to emulate plenty of systems but generally i have a major dislike of the Wii and it feels like a toy to me, i don't feel immersed in the game because the control scheme is so funky.

    TOY:
    an object designed to be played with.
    source: Collins English Dictionary
    I´m going with Cue:
    ALL video game systems are designed to be played with, so ALL consoles ARE toys!

    I would say all video games are forms of toys, the only difference is that they can now do more e.g. what movies, etc.

    Besides the Wii does what allot of the other consoles do with homebrew, it's just nintendo chose not to do it themselves.

    Now that 360 and PS3 gets motion controls, they are also becoming "a toy" like Wii...hehe

    Anyways.. Gaming on all consoles is a toy. You can watch video, play music on all 3 consoles too.. they are more than a toy, but most people uses consoles as toys. Gaming is accepted nowadays, so many people over 40-50 also plays games. Its not only for 10-20 years old anymore.

    Games is toys no matter if its violent or not.

    Flight Simulator X for example, is not a game. Its a flight simulation only. There is no score, story or any special goal.
    The Video Game industry the last decade explained. Blame gamers, and not developers.

    Agreed. The way it is now, makes it a loaded question.

    Why don't we be fair and place all consoles up there because they are all toys.

    absolutely right, the big hint is in the GAME part of VIDEOGAMES all consoles are toys not just the wii, without the all toys option this poll is just pathetic fanboy fodder and pretty shameful for mc to try a stunt like this.


    Anyone who wants to add me feel free to do so
