    Nintendo Wii


    Normally I would post this on the ES Gaming board, but since it appears
    to be busted... Hi.


    God, this thing is going to freakin' rule. RULE. It's sooo awesome.
    Wii Sports is going to be a pack-in game! When was the last time
    that happened? Uh, 15 freaking years ago with the Super Nintendo
    and Super Mario World.

    The Virtual Console is also going to rule. Some of the prices are a bit high,
    but still not unreasonable. $5 for NES, $8 for SNES and $10 for N64.
    Hmmmm. Yes, I know; all you retard pirates can get them for free.
    Good job.

    Oh, and apparently the Wii is going to be region free. Oh. My. God!

    The only thing that sucks is that additional controllers are going to
    cost a bit much $40 for the wiimote and $20 for the nunchuck attachment.
    That's $60. Ouch.

    Q: What's the cost of the Wii's online functionality?
    A: There is no incremental cost to using WiiConnect, the console connects via WiFi or wired connections.
    Sweet.

    Crap. Some guy just came in to inspect the apartment. When he
    left, I'm not sure if he said "Thanks, Man." Or "Thanks Ma'am."

    I've been confused for a woman before.

    I can't predict the future. But I was dissapointed with Nintendo's last two iterations, and I don't know if I'm going to get another.

    The wii.com link isn't working dude.
    I can't wait for this to hit Europe. I'm going to put my student loan to (better) use when it does.

    I haven't really been keeping up to date with the whole Wii thing though, games-wise I mean. I guess I'll just grab the first couple that look fun when I go and buy it.

    I loved the GameCube's controller. So damn comfortable.

    I don't see where I said anything about the controller. I meant the systems overall.

    The Wii.com link works. I just accidently typed ww.wii.com instead of
    wwW.wii.com. You're a computer hacker I totally thought you would
    have caught that.

    I personally cant wait for this to come out... the last system I was looking forward to getting was the SNES. At $250 this is only slightly more expensive than the SNES was when it came out. Free internet play and ability to purchase games online? awesome!

    In America, yes, but in the UK, no.

    And you may complain about add-on controller prices but spare a thought for us pasta-munching European freaks. We're going to be paying more in the region of 100 of your silly money for the two controllers.

    Apparently translating things into eight other languages that you're never gonna refer to is an expensive business.

    I'm pretty sure that Mario 64 shipped with the N64, for a little while atleast.
