    Now if they could only start putting out more games that'll peak my damn interests.

    Right now they only Wii games I'm looking forward to are Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M.

    seems like that's how it always is for nintendo. at least the past few systems-n64,cube,and wii. don't get me wrong,i'm a lifelong nintendo guy but it's like mario,metroid,zelda,and then nothing. with the occasional mario kart or smash bros thrown in for good measure. how about a new star fox or kid icarus?

    Never liked the Wii. I lost faith in Nintendo after the 64. I like smooth awesome graphics that the Wii cant provide from what I have seen of it.

    third party support is picking up so the console doesnt have to rely on nintendo alone anymore.

    muramasa's keeping me plenty busy. then we have fragile, silent hill (which will probably suck. most likely suck. it will suck. lets ignore I put it on the list). a boy and his blob. final fantasy crystal chronicles: the crystal bearers, dead space extraction, resident evil darkside chronicles, red steel 2, spyborgs, tatsunoko vs. capcom...

    and this is just third party stuff that'll be out by january. the drought is over.

    Muramasa. smooth. awesome. the wii does just fine whenever realistic-style graphics arent being used.

    I'm not bitching about the system itself, I'm bitching about it's game library.

    Way too many third party throw-away games and not enough honest-to-god good games.

    The Wii itself if a nifty little system. Compact, easy to use, has an internet browser, etc.

    But I bought it to play games.

    Awesome news. I wonder what kind of price drop we'll see in Canada. I'd suspect it'll be 199 here too, since the PS3 slim sells for 299 in the US and in Canada.

    My wife has been wanting a Wii for a while now and this price drop is just what the doctor ordered.

    This is something I don't understand though. It's not your job to enlighten me or me to win you over or anything retarded like that. haha

    There's a large amount of great Wii games. I own more Wii games than 360. And WAY more than PS3 (although I don't own a PS3 anymore). But let us not turn this into List Wars: The Return!

    Each system has ups and downs and the Wii definitely has more shovelware though.

    it was only a matter of time before they dropped it since both Sony and MS figured out price drops for their systems as well.
