    Well, if not by Nintendo then some third party should do it.

    I just had an interesting thought about the "Wii" name. And it actually doesn't sound as weird to me anymore. For some reason the word, Hawaii popped into my head. And we all know that it definately sounds like "E" at the end so it really isn't far-fetched for Wii to be pronounced like WE.

    That is all...

    This thought popped into my head last night and I couldn't get it out, so I'm sharing it with all of you.

    I live in Wisconsin, so that means I get to play with my... WI-Wii!!

    It also hadn't been posted in in almost two months. I figure conversation is more likely to start up again with stupid jokes than any intellectual debate, so....

    Nice size comparison for the optional classic controller.

    Man, hardware-wise, it seems everything looks sexy for the Wii.

    I wonder how many of the Wii games that will require you to be active with the controller. What if just want to sit in the good chair, dim the lights, get some snacks and just relax and play.

    That's my only concern about the Wii, really. Most of my 'video game time' is my time to relax after a long day. If the Wii forces me to jump, kick, punch, and slide - that's really not that relaxing.

    I had heard that the release date was changed from the 19th to the day after Thanksgiving. Website still shows the 19th, so I'm sure it is nothing.

    I haven't heard anything, and I'm sure the internet would be exploding right now if it had. So, it's news to me if they have.

    I see that the local EB store is setting up thier Wii display. A couple of the Wii boxes were on the floor, so I picked it up and took a good look. It's a nice packaging, very similar to the DS Lite box.

    I also noticed that the "Wii Sports Included" label weren't on the boxes. I'm assuming those are stickers that are pasted on, and this pretty much confirms my theory that Nintendo will eventually offer a "core" system without any pack-in game.

    I don't have any idea when such a move will be made, but it's a safe bet that Christmas 2006 is out of the question. Nintendo is likely holding this card for the inevitable Microsoft or Sony price drops in 2007. There's too much pressure for both of them to sell units and get the prices down. Sony especially.

    This leaves Nintendo in a perfect position to either drop the price of the Wii hardware, or sell the core system at a lower price. Remember that the DS dropped from $150 to $120 within its first year. We'll see a $200 Wii before too long.

    As always, it's probably wiser to wait a little while, until new consoles have established themselves a bit. Early adotpers get the bragging rights, but they always have to pay for it.

    Turns out that Wii got the most expencive standard controller in the history (atleast what i know). Here it costs $98 for a Wiimote + nunchuk. The Wii itself is about $350.

    Interesting. Sounds like it will be like another Panasonic GameCube.

    God I hope not! I barely escaped my girlfriend's wrath after I purchased the Q.

    I already have a half dozen DVD players and the only one that looks good on my TV is STILL my regular DVD recorder through Component. So I don't give a care if the Wii does it or not. Take it out and lower the price. I don't care. I don't need it. DVD players are a dime a dozen now. And almost as small as one.
