    Their tag: "playing is believing..."

    to which I respond:

    "and weeing is relieving."

    Graphics ARE deceiving, but sucky names cause grieving.

    Having just watched Nintendo's press conference, I'm seriously sold on Wii. The name doesn't bother me anymore, thanks to Sony. Since when did they turn into The Great Gatsby?

    I don't know where hardcore gamers will fall, but I see this being a big hit. It just looks fun. Everybody who sees this is going to want to give it a try. Everyone. And the best part is not having to hock a kidney in order to play.

    The image of people of all ages, playing with the Wii remote, will sell. It's selling an image, a panache of cool, just like iPod. I can see the tennis game being a hit, and the new Wario Ware will be a must-own. New Mario, new Metroid, and good heavens, do I get to fight with a sword?

    Do you have any idea how much money Lucasarts is going to make with their lightsabre game? You know they're making one. That's going to be a license to print money.

    I'm interested in hearing what the bloggers on the E3 floor have to say about the games.

    so err um... contemporary controller announced, anyone notice this?



    seems like a SNES and PS2 controller combined

    http://www.nintendo.co.jp/n10/e3_200...ontroller.html

    This seems like good news to me. Why is there a wire though?

    Why do so many people keep saying that looks like the PS2 controller? Just 'cuz of the two sticks? What kind of conventional controller these days doesn't have two sticks?

    The thing just looks like a modern day SNES controller.
    Looking to buy: Galerians disc 2 (PSX) and The Unholy War case/manual (PSX). PM me!

    Probably ironically because of the 4 button array and dpad

    I really enjoyed Nintendo's conference. A good mix of trailer reels (for both Wii and DS) and on-stage gameplay, which made the games look really fun.

    I thought the three new franchises that Nintendo introduced briefly were actually the weakest part of the presentation. The graphics looked ordinary, the names were hardly original, etc. But I am sure they will be a ton of fun to play

    And blimey, the GameCube got some love, didn't it?

    2 sticks in what looks like really awkward places to use. I hate where the sticks (left in particular) are on the PS2 pad and the one on this looks even harder to use. I also can't imagine trying to pull the trigger with my thumb on that stick.

    Also, if this is meant to be used to play N64 games its going to need 2 more face buttons.

    Sorry, that pad looks butt ugly to me. Looks like i'll be spending more time with my wiimote woo!

    Reminds me of this controller I bought and hate. It is just too small for me to use more than 30 mins. My friends love it, but I only keep it around for them to use.

    Which originally appeared on the SNES controller.

    Now that i have heard more about this system, I'm actually thinking i'll preorder one at EB to have one at launch, not that that makes any sense because most launch units are no good..

    well if your going to get a launch unit, it may as well be nintendo, they have (BY FAR) the best track record of launches with the least amount of defective units. FYI: the 360 set a record for most defective launch units (24% i believe was the estimate). Avg systems run a 12-16% defective rate on launch. Gamecube was very low as far as that goes. I don't have any numbers on them, but when I worked at gamestop for all three launches, the Gamecube was the only system i didn't have to take a defective unit back.
    one time collector of consoles...I've had them all, literally. I'm now selling everything to raise money for Northwest Harvest, a charity that provides food and clothing for families in need in the Northwestern United States.

    I worked at EB for over a year as a manager and the ONE AND ONLY defective GC I ever saw had a sticky hood-release button. That's it.

    I would have NO qualms about buying a Nintendo release system. A Sony release system? Get the replacement plan.

    Sure it would have. It's no different than any of the other umpteen English-derived console names over the years. And mispronounciation never stopped the Japanese from adopting English words into everyday life.

    It's still a situation they need to try to avoid, and they've done so.

They are delivering huge this year, bigger than ever, totally stealing the show in a lot of people's eyes. I feel the revolution coming, and that revolution is wii.
