Nintendo Wii, the anticipation grows


With an expected release date of late November 2006, details of Nintendo's latest console are causing a growing wave of speculation. Much of it is in the context of how different it is from Sony's next console, the PS3, which is slated for release at a similar time.

The disparity in the length of queues to try out the Wii and PS3 at E3 2006 have become a thing of geek legend.

To view some of the reasons why I believe that the Wii is going to be a Christmas hit, visit this link for a five-minute video montage of some Nintendo ads.

The price difference (c. Wii: £150 vs PS3: £450) is also going to be a big factor when parents are considering which console to put under the Christmas tree.

And if you're willing to turn down your politically correct antennae, this perceptive and hilarious spoof of the recent Apple ads will tell you more about the differences between the consoles than any comparison charts or discussion forums will!

That is absolutely nuts. That line is simply incredible. Must've REALLY sucked to have been stood in it. XD

Made me feel tired just watching that video... you really would wanna "wii" at the end of that, no?

Crazy gamer-types... I'm getting the feeling I won't truly understand until I either try it or get more into gaming...

I'm just glad that Nintendo have finally given girls a reason to wave the 'troller all over the place :-)
