    Geez evidently journalistic integrity doesnt count if your talking about "toys". The only thing accurate in the entire article is the statement that its less expensive than the others. Nintendo really needs to build its own hype machine...of course we can hope that the gameplay alone will hype itself. My daughters boyfriend mentioned that he couldnt wait for a ps3, I mentioned that I was getting the Wii, he laughed and said the ps3 was going to be awesome. I asked what games he was waiting for he mumbled off a few non-exclusive titles, (GTA, Fear, Marvel and Madden to be specific) I invited him over to play Marvel and Madden next week while he is waiting to get a ps3 [​IMG]
