    Will it get cheaper for xmas?
    can GOW be played online?
    What other games besides GOW and Halo 3 that are as good as those coming out for the 360?
    Are you selling your 360 scrubbin?

    I doubt it, it has a advantage towards the ps3 in price, but not vs. the Wii so it may go down.

    It won't go down for Xmas this year.... probably in the spring.
    GoW can be played multiplayer and coop online.
    As far as good games still on the horizon Lost Planet looks really fun and Rainbow Six Vegas looks amazing as well.

    I'm glad I used a gift card on mine. Right now all I use it for is a DVD player. I know it will have games I want to play eventually, but right now nothing seems that fun. Maybe I'll rent GoW, it doesn't seem like it's worth a purchase though.

    Yeah you people playing it on non HD tv's are really missing out IMO. My friend brought his around the other weekend and we hooked it up to my new tv, looked fantastic.

    Im tired of hearing how great the wii is gonna be. Does anyone realize how retarded theyre gonna look playing it and the graphics suck balls. I say fuck consoles and stick to PC which is ever evolving.

    Graphics won't be THAT bad, since it's using the same class of GFX tech as the other competitors. Plus, beyond a certain point, gameplay has it over the graphics, which "wow" one for the first day, then becomes ho-hum.

    On the other hand, you aren't the market that Nintendo is aiming for anyway. They want a bigger market than the already-saturated hard-core market, and I think they'll get it too.

    What people dont realize with the wii, is that they are trying to make all games use the wiimote. Well that just is stupid, some games just dont work that well flailing your arms. Some work well that were based on normal control methods, but most if not all will fail and play like crap. Look at the sonic game, you have to hold the controller horizontally and to jump you rotate the wiimote 180 degrees towards you. Seems alot more complicated than pressing A to jump. The wiimote idea is nothing more than novelty they are pushing as innovation. Its a gimmick, and everyone is falling for it. Im not saying it wont be fun, or it wont work, but nintendo did this to make money, not to revolutionize gaming.

    not every game will use the "wiimote", a lot of the games will utilize the classic controller like smash bros. and some of the games will use the DS as a controller too so boo-ya, its not all wiimote

    if im correct all the new games are supposed to use the controller that comes with the console and the others use different ones. Old games normal Wii games flailing loony.
