    I'd like to get a Wii, but I refuse to pay the $50+ I'd have to to buy off of ebay. Its such a cheap console, is supply ever going to freaking catch up with demand? I was told a couple of times that big shipments would be rolling shortly, but thats been months now.

    I got one, we never play it, I dont know why but we always just play Mario Kart on 64. We could play it on virtual console but I dont feel like having to buy classic controllers for it... Want to buy mine?

    I played my buddy's Wii, and was rather unimpressed. I didn't really dig the Gamecube either though.

    I loved my Gamecube. Wish I hadn't gotten rid of it. The downfall of Nintendo as of late is simply the lack of hardcore games. Resident Evil 4 was an AWESOME game. And the best console it came on, was its debut console, Gamecube. It looked better than Playstation 2. But nobody makes good cool games for the systems really. I really want to play the new Zelda.

    i saw the yahoo news story talking about how the Wii is outselling 360/ps3 by a wide margin lately... kinda odd. IMO nintendo has been on the downhill ever since the SNES. Someday I'll buy a Wii when they are $50 or something. My next system will be the 360 fo sho.

    Ya know, I was up at Best Buy a few weeks ago and they had several of them. I guess they were just delivered. I havent seen anymore since. If I had known of a shortage I would have picked up a couple of them. They look pretty cool but I think I will stick with my 360 for now.

    i have all 3 systems....

    wii is best for playing with friends....
    360 is best for playing single player games...
    ps3 is best for online games....


    imho 360 lags for me alot when playing online
    ps3 i can play in 30 player games and not a drop of lag




    and wii is just completly fun to play with others
