    Were happy for you wario boy [​IMG] (not fan boy) [​IMG] , but i wonder how long before people start returning the system afterwards [​IMG]

    P.S why madden? is the control really that much of a difference?, and you must be in a differnt zone or something since it's 1:36am here(no one is up).

    I don't know profit maybe, and it might not be a ps3 but it is still worth something on ebay. You could buy two sell one and get it for free basically, and that is what i will do if i get one that is. [​IMG]

    How is returning a system turning a profit? Buying an extra Wii and selling it for more than you purchased it for is turning a profit, but returning it isn't.

    It's almost as if you want to see the Wii fail.

    The wii roms were fake, it has just been confirmed @ maxconsole, thats why they're no longer up. Plus from what ive read, you cant rip the wii dvds just yet.

    Got home an hour ago and hooked it up immedietly:
    I've created a Mii, checked out the Shopping Channel, and did all the Wii Sports Events once.

    I couldn't get a game. My Wal-Mart was gay and were too lazy to actually bother scanning any GOOD games in (Monster 4x4? No thanks.)

    I'm enjoying it so far, the Wiimote took only a few minutes to get the hang of, though my brother, who is decent with golf IRL, had trouble with Wii Golf. I wasen't ever expecting Ultra Realism, but to him it was just off.

    I'm going to Best Buy tomorrow to get games for the freaking thing, I couldn't believe Wal-Mart didn't scan any in...

    Why so long Opium?

    Then again, that's coming from a guy who doesn't even know when he's going to pick one up. [​IMG]

    I think I'll get my Wii sometime between next week and December 8th...
    and if I don't have it until then, I'll be playing Wii and Zelda on December 8th anyway, because my brother is getting a european Wii [​IMG]

    Just got mine at a midnight launch at Toys R Us in Dallas--the store had 171 systems and about 200 buyers in line. Don't have too much to report that hasn't been said, though I'm wondering what the hell my Wii is doing on the Internet while it's on standby........... hopefully it's not downloading porn. Maybe it's getting some new Mii's? Hmm. Got the system, an extra remote (all outta extra nunchuks, though) and Zelda, but it took so long to get the thing assembled that I decided to wait until tomorrow to dedicate myself to Zelda. Tried WiiSports, though, fun for a bit (though bowling isn't as good as people have been saying). Looking forward to playing WiiSports w/ the extended family over Thanksgiving.

    I think I know the answer to this (unfortunately) - but will the Wii play imported GC Discs. I'm in the UK and all my GC discs are US imports, I guess that a UK Wii won't play these.

    I have a n00bish question: is a SD included with the Wii? And if not, has the Wii an internal Memory?

    Well it's just for information, because i already preordered it (Dec 7th here). [​IMG]

    Will the Wii box fit in a back pack or laptop bag? I'm gonna have to ride my bike to the store in the morning to grab my Wii and was wondering if it would fit.
