Alright, so yesterday I went to the Nintendo Fusion Tour (no, not entirely for the Wii, I like PWT's, Relient K, and The Sleeping). Anyway, I got the chance to play the Wii. WarioWare, Excite Truck, and the Wii Sports' tennis game, to be exact. Before this event, I was a hardcore PS3 supporter, and an (almost) Wii hater. But now, I have to admit, I have been drug into the all-consuming awesomeness of the Nintendo Wii. I don't know what the hell happened! Whatever Nintendo is doing, it's working. The only thing I can compare it to is heroin. Once you try it, you can't stop and want more.. it's insane. I thought at first the controller was a gimmick and overall just a bad idea. Boy was I wrong.. the controller's motion sensing is unbelievable and undeniably fun. There are so many ways to use the damn thing! Hold it at your waist and jump to jump-rope on screen; hold the controller horizontally on both ends to use it as a steering wheel. It almost seems as if the possibilities are limitless. The Wii is truly "Revolution"ary.
The point of all this? Well, finding you're s***-poor, and can't afford a PS3 makes you want to consider other options. So, I have officially conformed (for now) to Nintendo's side and am planning on camping for the Wii on the 19th. With a price tag of $250 and games priced the same as the previous gen, you can't go wrong!
Zelda being a launch title doesn't hurt either: [video=dic6kmOo5bgIujbY]
