i'm counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds! grin
I am so freakin' excited! 8D
Less than 8 days! siiw

Luckily I get paid 2 days before launch, so I plan on being at Wal-Mart at midnight for the purchase.
My Mom offered some financial assistance via her Circuit City credit card ... but I refused because Circuit City doesn't open until 8am and God forbid I miss a midnight launch. ... I'd rather be broke till next paycheck. lach1

WIth my Wii I plan on purchashing Zelda and Call of Duty 3 for my games. I also plan on getting $20 of Wii Points for online purchases and 1 extra controller with nunchuck.

As soon as I get it online I'll be sure to make a post here using it's Opera Web Browser. smile ... once my eyes bleed from Zelda and need a rest. ^^

Oh man, how I wish I could get my hands on one ^^
Sadly, I have other obligations to meet, so it looks like I won't be able to get my hands on one until after Christmas time....but I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

Let us know how awesome it is DreamAddict grin

Hehehe, I think I'll go for the Wii. I don't have much time to play now that I'm in University now, though. If this were to be remarkably cheap, I might go for it. There's something about Legend of Zelda that is so nostalgic for me. I was playing the original one earlier this year, it brought back a lot of memories for me. I love that noise that is made when you solve a puzzle or find a secret...for that reason alone I may buy the Wii lachgroen

Alas, I sold my Gamecube on ebay 4 years ago. I did get a pretty good price for it, though, so no complaints from me. Gamecube was a weak console, in my opinion. But I believe the Wii has amazing potential for greatness, and so I think I shall purchase it.

I like the fact how there will be free internet gameplay on the Wii, unlike the Xbox, which is pay-to-play. I had it for three years, and that got pretty expensive sadblauw

Bwahaha, mine's been pre-ordered for months! (long live canada and toys-r-us)! I'm getting Twilight Princess and Excite Truck with it, and in the near future I plan on buying Metroid Prime 3, Call of Duty 3 and The surgery game which name I forgot tounge2 . I'm going for the Wii because it's cheap and looks VERY innovative, though the PS3 interests me a lot as well. grin

I've pre-ordered my Wii, but I Probably won't get it till after Christmas, since i was 59th on the pre-order list. I probably won't get an extra game apart from Wii sports, because of my lack of money. If i do get it after Christmas, i'd be able to get a game and a controller, which would be cool. It's just that i don't want to wait

I was going to preorder one. My mom went into toys r us a while back and asked about preordering and they had no idea what she was talking about. She came back 2 weeks later and they said sorry, we are done with all the preorders.

Lame!

I guess I will just wait a while longer smile

Tomorow night I've got this press event for retail bussisnes in which we are to test and play the Wii at Nintendo. And when it comes out here, the eight of december, I'm first in line to buy one. My parents are payin' the system, since it is going to be a real household utillity. Everyone here plays the gamecube, and with the wii it will be no else.

I've decided to wait until next year to get a next-gen console. First I'd like to take a good look at what each system has to offer me before I upgrade from my good ol' ps2. With that said I believe that the playstation 3 will be the most successful and worthwhile system to own thanks to it's vast processing power and sony's commitment and support for the system. The XB360 felt premature and rushed to beat the other systems to the market, time will tell if their decision to jump the gun was a wise decision (probably not IMO). I'd love it if the Wii was very successful but I fear that after the novelty of the controller wears off, and nintendo doesn't have any blockbusters like Zelda left, that the system will fall behind the other two systems and go the way of the gamecube. I guess we will see which console comes out on top over the next few months though..

The Wii will be different from Gamecube simply because it has online connectivity. As long as a system has the online capability, the games have massively increased replay value. I played Return to Castle Wolfenstein for two years online alone, even though it was just a simple shoot-em-up. The Wii will be great, man.

Nintendo is the video game god among all game developers, and I give them mucho respect for the N64 which kicked the Sony and Sega's butts with their PSX and Genesis systems ^^ But after the PS2 and with the launch of the PS3 and Microsoft getting in the mix with the XBox and XBox 360 and revamped game titles like Grand Theft Auto, Tekken, Final Fantasy--and newer titles like SOCOM, Ninja Gaiden, and some other third game unsure Nintendo's slowly falling out of the game wars neutral

Personally, I'm not impressed with the design of the Wii (Wheeee! ^^)...I mean, the controller-system is pretty cool, but the design is kinda quirky and a bit...awkward eh The price--$250--is awesome, but it kinda let's you know what you're getting when you compare it to the $600 (>.<) PS3 and the $400 XBox 360. Nintendo still kicks butt when it comes to games (sometimes...), but I'm really hoping this isn't what we've been long anticipating and that Nintendo's just buying time before they come out with something better smile

Until then though, I'm sticking with my (maybe ridiculously priced) PS3 rolleyes

The only thing that really bothers me about it is it's lack of FPS titles. Xbox 360 and PS3 have a bunch of them announced, but Wii is pretty lacking in that regard. I think I'll wait and see for a bit before I make my decision.
