Wii (November 19, 2006 Street Date)

Anyone want to bet how many crap games have to be purchased as part of the GameStop.com Wii bundle?

Check back soon for information on our exciting pre-order bundles.

I am not sure I would say exciting Bob.  Maybe expensive.

I have still not decided what I am going to do as far as next generation systems go.  I doubt I am going to get a 360 anytime soon.  I am not so sure I want to spend a mortgage payment on a PS3.  And while the Wii looks interesting, I have yet to see how much the backwards compatible game will cost, or what sort of support the thing is going to get.  Right now I could care less about the audio/video capabilities, because I do not have a fancy pants HDTV set, so if the Wii is on par with my PS2 and GameCube, I can live with that.  No Mario on the tentative release list?  That could be a problem.

  1. I just noticed that the link in this article says

    “The Wii is backward-compatible to all Nintendo GameCube games and includes four ports for controllers and two slots for memory cards.”

    I wonder if GG game sales are going to go up now. I know I am going to start looking in the bargain bins or may hanging onto GC games a while longer if I decide to target a Wii.
