I have to say this about the Wii

Ok, I understand where some people are coming from. But a lot of people are blowing this way out of proportion. The Wii is not just a GameCube with a new controller, or a suped up Xbox for that matter. It is something that is going to change the way people look at video games. It's the most daring, and innovative thing I've ever seen. $249.99 is not an unreasonable price at all. Infact, i like the way that sounds when you compare it to $599.99, Dont you? And I agree, the price of the Wiimote+nunchuk=$60 is kinda high, but do you remember how much the Xbox Controller S cost when it first came out? $49.99 not too far off there. Nintendo is a company that understands the way of gaming. They want to make games that are fun and original; And I salute that. I will buy a Wii, and I will buy a lot of games. Why? Because almost every game that I've seen hands on video for I say "HOLY SH*T THAT'S COOL!" The world is changing. Will you be ready? 11-19-2006
