Im still unsure if Im even going to bother getting a new console any time soon. The 360 is out and so far Im not interested so I can pretty much rule that out for now. Im a Sony fan I guess. My Xbox is packed away in a wardrobe while my PS2 is still being played so naturally the PS3 should be my front runner and, to some extent, it is. Launch titles never look good to me on any console but I trust that sony will bring out similar titles that made me a fan of theirs in recent years. If it was a choice between PS3 or 360 Id probably go PS3 (but the price is a put off)

Now for the reason this is in the Nintendo section: The Wii.

Im still unsure what to think of this bizzare console. I love the idea of it being a completely different look on the idea of modern gaming with this bizzare new controller but Im worried that the games may be no more than 10 minute time filling novelties. The idea that they are concentration on playability rather than graphics appeals to me in bucketloads though. I dont care how good the graphice are as long as Im having fun. This makes me think that I want a Wii, plus they are going to be quite cheap.

Im going to have to test it out before buying one, but I do like the fact that its cheaper than the others.

I'm dancing around at the thought of the new Nintendo.

Mind you, it might also be due to the red hot coals down my trousers...

But seriously folks, you have to admit that it has everyone talking, whether you like or loathe the machine. It's sounding like it has gamers split 50/50, but I'm convinced that it will appeal to plenty of people not currently into games as well, like the DS does.

Guess so, but that must be a pretty boring game if you have to keep your arm still for so long.

It does look like the new Nintendo will involve a lot of moving about to play. Lets hope it helps all those fat gamers lose weight.

Arm chair workout for Couch Potatoes!!

Hmm. Maybe someone should make that into a game. I just keep coming up with these great ideas. lol.

Fair point the tennis game does look a little pants. But its a showcase game emphasizing that gameplay is a million times more important then graphics. I mean it would have to be with such a stupid looking game. lol. Of course, Nintendo's moto is Wii. Meaning everybody, anybody can play games. So maybe this one is intended for Grandad to play?

Intersting clip! But I have to say, I don't trust anyone with such an unhealthy fascination with dogs. I change my mind lame clip.
