I have been watching some vids of the Wii and I am very impressed with the whole package. I will probably buy one.

I think the only thing that will tempt me in to buying one of these is going to be a decent game with
some cool Lightsaber wielding action.

That's where the sword practice from the LRP game thread comes in to it!

But Luke... you should be well able to cope with that  I'm sure you have lots of practise.

Yea, but it will also give seasoned swordfighters an advantage.

its a nintendo so who cares. They led the market with the snes but then other people started making better consoles. Don't bother arguing with me cos I dont intend to read this topic again

in that case, poper's so ugly they embossed his face on a box of super-strength laxatives and sold it empty

last  nintendo i had was the 64 and I still play mario kart every now and then, but for me nintendo reached its peak with mario kart 64 so I have stuck to playstation and will probably get a ps3 if i get any of the consoles.

The best game on 64 was Goldeneye, there is however only one good game on gamecube and that is Smash Bros., its also the only reason I would get a Wii. Sony sucks, buy an Xbox.

I agree GOldeneye was the best game on the N64, the new smash bros looks very cool as does Mario Galaxy. I will be buying a Wii, I just wish it was HD as I have an HD TV so it would be a shame not to make use of this.

Did you know that it's completely backwards compatible with the Gamecube and can take both kinds of discs, Wii and GC, and it comes with emulators for all previous nintendo consoles, you probably did, but that is so cool.

i've never been a huge fanboy of Nintendo's not that i hated them or anything i just never really played them. i got an N64 for when i was a kid but i didnt like most of the games. ive never even played Zelda which apparently is a mortal sin in the fanboy world. i might get one just because they're so cheap and the controller looks interesting but im not sure yet. and about the name of course they changed it. with xbox360 and ps3 out or coming out they had to do something that would set them apart, way apart, you'll never forget that name will you? i really dont care what it is, either way so. meh.

I am really considering getting the Wii, I really want to play old school snes games and my N64 favorites. I think Wii actually stands to take a bit of the market this time around. Perhaps if Sony screws up (which I believe will and already is) it might come out ahead or in second place (the 360 is still alot cheaper than the PS3 and I am personally expecting a price reduction around the launch date of the PS3 (which is a very good idea btw), I think there will be better sales this time around for both Nintendo and Microsoft.

For those of you who are big Star Wars fans.  You'll be happy to hear that Lucas Arts is planning and possibly is already under production for a Wii Star Wars title.  In which, yes, you will be able to wield a lightsaber and hear the fabled swoooosh through the speaker on the Wii-mote.

For Smash Bros. Fans you'll be disheartened to hear that Ice Climbers, Mr. Game & Watch and Young Link have recieved the boot and are to be replaced by Ridley (Samus's arch-nemesis), Bowser Jr., and "Celda" Link (better known as Windwaker Link) who will recieve the same title as Young Link but with Spiffy new looks and moves.

For other doubters Ubisoft, the French software company, has dedicated all of its best franchises to the system including Farcry, the new Red Steel, Rayman, et. al.  Still doubting Wii?  Does a mere 200$ US tantalize you (Euro price varies depending on your currency Euro or Pound).  So remember when it's either 700$ and your soul or $200 and a great variety of games...pick Nintendo and leave your soul for Feist

You didn't mention that in Super Smash Bros Brawl you can play as Solid Snake. Which is just pure awesome. He even can use his cardboard box.

I didn't mention Snake b/c he has already been announced.  The description I gave is of a new roster change that Sakurai has made to the pre-existing cast.  But just in case others don't know.  The new characters thus far are: Pit, Metaknight, Zero-Suit Samus, Wario, Solid Snake, Bowser Jr., Ridley, Windwaker Link.

I am pleased to see Wii getting some good 3rd party support, if its true about a Star Wars game that would be great . I am also pleased to see Farcry.
