Question: Has the Wii fallen short of its initial promise?
Answer: Well.. no. The world was promised a gimmick and it got one. Developers are always claiming their product is 'new and exciting', and they never are truly innovative or half as groundbreaking as is made out. Quite why so many people are interested in a control-scheme which eschews the tight and functional controllers which have been developed over the past few decades in favour of a flailing stick is beyond me, but it has shifted units.
All the console developers stifle innovation and quirky games, they refuse to let them be released, how many times have you read interviews where X game is mentioned only to hear that X console dev. won't let it be released on their system? For any of them to tout innovation is a laugh. Personal computers allow that, it's got nothing to do with control schemes and everything to do with the ability to play what you want when you want.
