Members of G-Unit not big Wii fans

Numerous celebrities have expressed their interest in Nintendo’s white console before, but at the opposite end of the spectrum, some stars simply aren’t interested. Two members of G-Unit – Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks admitted today that they don’t own a Wii.

Tony Yayo said, “I got an Xbox 360, I got the regular green Xbox, I got PlayStation 3. I had a Wii, but I gave it away. No disrespect, it just wasn’t my thing…I had one game on the Wii where you had a motorcycle and one hand was the steering and the other hand was, like, two guns or something. But I really wasn’t into the graphics. I think a lot of people like to play it, but I just don’t like the graphics. The graphics is everything to me! It’s like when we used to play Nintendo and Genesis. You see the difference between, like, Duck Hunt and now. I mean, come on, bro. I’m sorry…I love good graphics, I really do. With that said, someone that says that graphics are the end-all-be-all doesn’t really understand the industry, or the point of gaming. I am glad they partake in some of what the industry has to offer, and I respect their choices. I just can’t agree with them 100%.”

Yayo’s justification is fairly understandable I suppose (if you care about graphics that much). I even admit that graphics are a very important aspect about a game, but it does not ultimately determine a game purchase for me. Besides, Super Mario Galaxy doesn’t look that terrible.

And what about Lloyd Banks? He said, “Man, I ain’t got no Wii either.” I just wonder if it’s for the same reason that Yayo mentions.
