I will be getting a Wii, but like I did for the 360, I'll wait at least a year

 

Its smarter, there are plenty of units available, and more games to choose from

 

And I could possibly even get one used

 

 

I will not however be getting a ps3, 2 consoles is my limit

Wow... attractive price. And it seems to be a really cool gaming experience.

 

I think Mario Party will be crazy fun with this new controller-thingy, as will WarioWare. I'm very excited for this--the only time I've been excited for a video game system for a long while now. In fact, I haven't even touched my Playstation 2 for more than six months.

Wow, I went to EB Games this morning at about eleven, and i walked in to reserve Wii, they said I'm so lucky, I was the last one to reserve a Wii. No one can reserve it anymore until after they are released, the guy there said that in the morning at about 10 (when they opened), there was a line of about 30 or 40 people waiting to reserve a Wii. Hah, And they say Friday the 13th is unlucky.

 

Edit: And i had quater exams today at school, I go to a catholic school, and we were all dismissed at 10:30, however, public schools had a normal day. No one from there is going to be able to reserve a Wii anymore, Sucks for them.

Now children, Tacoking is what we in society like to call "hard core". Stay away from him on the release day of any console, this is to avoid any routiness and/or mild to severe confusion caused by his slurred speech and.. eh... pocket... protector?

 

All in good fun, taco.

Getting a Wii definatly shouldn't be as big of a problem as it was for the 360 or will be for the PS3, as there will be around 1 million units ready for the America's on launch day. Compared to the 400,000 PS3's (and a similar number for the 360).

 

Actually there will be 4,000,000 systems in America on launch day.

That's not America, that is the world wide number they will ship before the end of the year - but all of that should be ready by launch. Nintendo hasn't officially announced how much each territory is getting, but we do know North America is getting the most - and that number is in the 1 million unit area.

Whoa...you went too far with the pocket protector.

So...will you put that sensor bar on top or underneath your television ?

 

 

 

It seems to me that it wouldn't matter, i think you'd probably have to calibrate it like you would somthing that has a touch screen. so it could go anywhere, but im not sure, all i know is, i've only seen it placed at the bottom.

Did anyone catch South Park last night?

 

Cartman wanted to freeze himself and be thawed out on the 19th, because he couldn't stand to wait any longer for the Wii to come out.

 

If you saw it no further explanation is required, but more went on than that, it is a 2 part-er, to be continued.

So we'll have to wait to see if Matt and Trey are for the Wii, or ripping on it.

 

Either way, it was pretty funny.

 

If you didn't see it try to catch one of the re-plays.

From what I understand, it's best underneath your TV. If you can't put it below, above the TV should be the next best place.

 

However, it literally can be placed anywhere as long as it's still connect obviously. I believe the cord is only three feet long, although there is a third party (Pelican I think) that is making cord extension for the bar.

 

So you can place it on the opposite end of the room, but remember you have to be facing the direction of the bar so it would be pointless.

I got a little bad news today, my store (Wii-Mart) is only getting 29 Wiis for launch.

It sounds like enough a few weeks ago, but now it's getting close and people are asking about it.

I'm not gonna wait in a line for a day, I just plan on getting there around midnight on Sat. so I might not get one.

I think I will call, or maybe I'll "misplace" a case of them just to be sure, although I hear that is frowned upon.

Oh well I know if I don't get one, I can still get it as soon as the next shipment drops, I'll be right there to snag one up.

I still don't know how many PS3s we are gonna get, Sony hasn't let us know yet, but I'm sure it's not many, my guess is 2 cases of $600. and 1 case of $500.

Maybe I can "misplace" a case of those too, I need my Christmas $$, via Ebay! Although it's highly unlikely.
