How much dust covers your Wii?

Wired magazine's Chris Kohler has posted a very telling gallery of reader-submitted dusty and neglected Wii consoles, games, and controllers at his Game|Life blog.

The photos look more like some sort of modern archaeological exhibit, displaying motion controllers seemingly frozen in time from the last moment they were used.

It's no secret that the Wii has lost plenty of steam since its enormous 2006 launch, with most gamers complaining of gimmicky software and lack of compelling blockbuster third-party titles. It seems Nintendo has even given up on the console, too. At the company's 2011 E3 press conference only one Wii title was seriously teased--The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword--a game we've been anticipating for well over a year now.

Of course, the main reason for the Wii's backseat spot at E3 2011 was its successor, the Wii U , a game console still very much in its infancy. We don't expect its release for at least another year. Until then, we're still wondering what to do with our office Wii. Here's hoping Skyward Sword nets about 200 hours of play time.

So just how much dust covers your Wii?
