Been playing Rayman Raving Rabbids recently on the PC.... so blatantly designed for the Wii though :D

I saw the Wii in action at the local Best Buy and now I really want one. It looks like a lot of fun.

yep. Wii most definitely IS a lot of fun. so much fun that people trade their PS3's for Wii's. That.... and the fact that nobody's really interested in PS3 anymore, so they can't sell them on eBay for almost 2x profit. I actually saw two PS3's down at my local Wal-Mart the other day.... just sittin there.... right at the counter. apparently people bought them when they arrived at the store, took them home, and returned them an hour later because there wasn't enough of an interest in them anymore to sell them for a large gain. I have yet to see another Wii on their shelves yet though.

Who the hell would want a PS3 anyway? i lifted the box of one of them that was at wal-mart.... those things are freakin HEAVY! it's almost like lifting my freakin computer. CRT monitors are probably lighter than the PS3.

Yeah !

mmmmmm no why we need to talk about the PS3 at all is the question ... I will buy a PS3 , I got the Wii the day it was released and I just bought our premium Xbox 360 and I will get a PS3 but like the Xbox I will wait a year after it is on the market to get a much better idea about what I am getting, the Wii was a clear cut winner right off the bat was a given its a Nintendo after all !

well played it last night with the sports game that came with it, the only thing i'll say is that is takes awhile to load screens at times.

one kid at WalMart yesterday was practically drooling over a PS3. i told him he doesn't want a PS3, and should get a Wii. he's like "Why? PS3 is SOOO much better!". i practically stood there and shook my head. the kid also didn't even know what BluRay was. *sigh*

and by kid.... i mean he was probably 12 or less. freakin spoiled rotten little twerps getting all their gaming consoles from their mom without having a clue what they're having their mom waste half a grand on.

If you wanted to convince him you shouldn't have spent time discussing specs and rather told him how getting a Wii would make him popular at school. ;)

"Regular" people don't give a crap about technical stuff.

LOL more PS3 bashing !!!

This is a Wii thread right ?

As far as slow loading screens I am not sure I follow, did you update your Wii to the latest version?

yeap is uploaded the lastest one as soon as i turned on, i should clarify and i know i'm just being spoilt, it takes about 4-5 seconds (i know roll your eyes now) between the setup screen and back to wii home, thats what i was referring to.

I want a wii!
They are all still sold out around here.
how long before you think that i'll be able to get one easily?
Oh and the Blu-Ray player is the ONLY reason for someone like many at this site (with good computers) to get the ps3...
