1. This is one of the vicious aspects of the Wii. Over three years the graphics produced by the PC, and perhaps the 360 if it can handle it but which is doubtful, will reach the photorealism standard for the nearby future. No one wants to play the insignificant low-res games released on the Wii, except those who cannot afford anything else.
You're forgetting that without an HD tv, the PS3 and XBox 360 are totally useless and no better than their predecessors. I have an HD tv and will be getting a PS3 along with my Wii, but the majority of the population does not. Even the Wii outputs better than a regular tv.
Also, you're completely avoiding the PS3 which has greater capabilities than the 360 so you're obviously a Microsoft fanboy.
2. Not true, it really is possible to achieve this in a time span of three to four years. Every adequate person in the industry who ever developed a game before will agree on my words.
Yes, games must be so incredibly easy to make for the PS3 and XBox 360. That's exactly why there is only 1 good game at launch for the PS3 (Resistance) and the 360 hasn't been that impressive as far as games go. Oblivion, Gears of War, and a few other have been great, but Nintendo already has 3 solid titles that everyone has loved playing (Zelda, Excite Truck, and Rayman) at launch. Not to mention Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl are coming out.
Yeah, the Wii's graphics do pale in comparison but most of the reviews I've read have said that the Wii is by far the most fun to play even though it doesn't look as pretty. And in my opinion, gaming is about having fun.
