MIIIIIIII :)

Game phoned to say it's there and I can pick it up at 8am tomorrow morning :) Can't wait!

Ordered it with Zelda (obviously!), Rayman Ravin Rabbits and Wii Play, with the extra controller.

What games are other people grabbing with it?

Thankfully, Amazon shone threw and my Wii is with Parcelforce right now for delivery tomorrow. Just also been to Tesco and picked up Zelda, Wii Play and an extra nunchuck.

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!

It is crazy as they don't predict anywhere near the unavailability as the 360 had.

someone ordering one on the bay for ?600+ may be able to go into a shop next week and pick one up for stock price even before it arrives from ebay

why is he debating? he should be putting it on right now!!!

ive never been a fan of nintendo games machines. personally i view them as a little kids gaming machine, not for a hardcore mature gamer.

Well basically its a game cube with a fancy remote.

If the remote doesnt work then its gonna fail I feel and the remote isnt that good...

Maybe i'm beening alittle harsh on this new machine but read this

When I played the tennis game it was great fun for 15 minutes then felt it wasnt always doing the swing or move I was trying to make.

Its ok for a party machine or 5 minutes bascially

I gonna ebay it

I'm quite impressed tbh!

Certainly nowhere near the 360 in terms of visuals. Doesn't help that I couldn't get a component video lead for it mind, so it's fuzzy composite at the moment. Boo.

But Louise and I played through a chunk of Rayman Ravin Rabbids tonight and we were really laughing along with it. The stuff that can be done with the controls completely transforms how you play the game. We were KNACKERED, honestly! Damn machine gives you a workout :)

Just popped Zelda in for a 'quick look' earlier. 3 hours later, ahem, I can safely state that Zelda is brilliant! As soon as you get a weapon in your hands in that game, the controls come alive. It's superb!

I don't think the Wii can replace the 360, but it can certainly sit alongside it as a very different equal. It's completely different to anything I've played before!

With those 2 machines under the telly, there's genuinely no reason for me to splash out 400 quid for Sony's late offering, put it that way.
