    I dont get it.. the only selling point the wii had was the moving a controller to do stuff ingame.. now they want me to hold a mini tv as a controller... seems stupid

    Once upon a time we thought throwing controllers at our TVs is utterly dumb, until Wii sold almost 100 million copies.

    The controller is the gimmick again this time, but also whole system is HD capable.

    Even includes the HDMI cable. And, as we all know and was confirmed in the video, those can be rather expensive when bought seperately :laugh:

    It'll sell just give it time. Remember the holiday season is here and no one else has a new console out so what are all of the yuppies going to buy the children they don't want to deal with?

    Nintendo lost me with the Wii. Had one for a month, and got rid of it. Boring games. Just more Mario and Zelda stuff. No thanks. And weak hardware.

    xenoblade, the last story, and arc rise fantasia were the only wii games I liked but I think if nintendo stops trying to market their stuff to little kids mainly they will do better

    Anyone else wonder what the hell the console adapter is also housing in it? A mini nuclear weapon so Japan can take over the world, one Wii at a time?


    Its bigger than the old Xbox bricks!!!!

    obviously. You complained about the controller, he pointed out that many complained about the original wii controller and it still sold like crazy.


    I don't get what you don't get.

    And it's not a micro tv, it's a touch screen.

    The one I played at Target had VASTLY better graphics then the PS3 sitting right next to it. AA on every game!
