Wii
« on: November 15, 2006, 11:29:08 PM »
The Wii needs a thread, and seeing as I am going to be putting 12-18 hours into waiting in line for the Wii, I figured I'd start it.

Went to go stake out Walmart today (mainly to see where I am going to have to line up, using the PS3 buyers as a guide). Looks like it is going to be a fun wait, especially with the wonderful weather we are having.

Red Steel was on sale and so were the Wii-mote and Numchuck. After going back home to get cash to buy all three of those, I returned and tried to buy them. Unfortunately, some stupid stock-person put up the Wii-mote and Numchucks prematurally, so we weren't allowed to purchase them. But, I got Red Steel. Now I can stare at it for 3 days.

Anyone else getting the Wii or going to get the Wii eventually?
I fell off the wagon and now I can't stop.

I'll be waiting outside of a BestBuy for one.  I tried preordering, but they ran out everywhere in like 15 minutes.

I will not buy a new system until it is two years old and doesn't cost an absolute fortune.

I won't buy a new system until I see games that I really want to play, which will probably be a while, since I've pretty much, well, grown out of gaming.  Last game I ever played was DotA, and I quit that months ago.

If I do buy a new gen console, it'll most likely be a Wii, since I grew up as a Nintendo fanboy.  Maybe if/when the new Zelda game comes out.

Zelda: Twilight Princess is a launch title, SK. And the Wii costs reletivally little compared to the other two current-gen (which was next-gen, but is current now) consoles.

When are you going to line up DK (time, date)?

I see.  Shows how completely out of touch I am with gaming.

I'd have to be re-bitten by the gaming bug before I consider it.  I'm not even sure when the Wii gets released in Aus.

Of all the next-generation consoles, the one that I'm most likely to get is the Wii. However, even with that being the case, I probably won't be getting it for a while because of the price; even though it's lower than the other consoles it's still $250 that I don't have, plus the accessories.

Also, for the longest time I just haven't been able to "get" into gaming; I'm rather apathetic to the whole thing right now.

I'm eventually going to get a Wii, I just don't have the $250 right now.  I'm going to go to a friends house on Sunday after he gets his Wii.  Should be a blast.  I'm really looking forward to SSB: Brawl.

I refuse to pay big bucks for a PS3 or XBox.  $300 is my limit on what I'll spend on a system.

I'll get myself a Wii.... in about 5 years. I like to collect consoles (and old electronics in general... ask me how many remote controls and televisions I have in storage >.>) so I typically wait until a generation releases and then I buy the previous generations for low prices. I think I paid 25 dollars for my N64 (I bought that in 2001) and maybe 50 for a NES (but that was eBay... so whatever)
 
Anyway... tell me how it is.

I'll definitely get a Wii, because I've been waiting for Twilight Princess for years. Unfortunately, I'll just have to wait a year to get the system, though. :(
