    But with OP:UA being at E3, DBZ Sparking NEO already being announced for a US release, and the Naruto GNT series being released in America, I suspect those will all eventually be availible In the US too... but then I'd have to put up with the Voices T_T

    Like I said in another thread, I failed to get a preorder, so I may camp out at Walmart to get one.

    :scribbles:

    $250 + Y25,000 is still less than a fully-decked PS3. :)

    The Wii is the only next-gen console which appeals to me. If I want good graphics, I'll stick with my PC. And all the High-Def freaks can drool as I can play games at 2048x1536 on my monitor.

    The Wii offers me a gaming experience I can't get on the PC, at least not without buying at least $250 in specialty hardware and then spending ages setting it up.

    I'm pretty sure it's a launch title in the US.

    If anyone really really wants to preorder they start on the 29th at Toys R Us.

    Haha. Maybe I'll wake up early and have to camp there for a preorder.

    I guess I'll wait till it comes out in America, and see what people there think of it first. I'll probably ask for it for Christmas.

    Are there any games that actually take advantage of 2048x1536 yet? I'm thinking maybe battlefield 2, but that would just be a guess.

    I feel extremely lucky.

    Dunno. I know when I played NFS:U, it topped at 1280x1024... I'm speaking of the theoretical possibility of playing games mostly.

    I'm going to take my chances in the first come first serve...
    Which shouldn't really be too hard, since my sources tell me that Nintendo, unlike Sony, will probably be having enough available on launch date to get everyone who preordered one a system as well as those who waited till it came out. As long as you (/we) rush in the first day or so, it probably won't be too hard to get one (Zelda might be, though...).

    What does everybody think of Red Steel? I was interested until I saw it in action via IGN and I don't know. either the guy playing has god awful aim or something is horribly amok with the title.
    It looks alright, but really isn't top of my list. If the video you speak of is the same one I'm thinking of, I believe he said he was playing too close to the TV, which was throwing the calibration off (I believe they would probably have some way of changing it for each TV, so it shouldn't be a big issue, either).



    If I can get enough for more controllers sometime ($60... ugh =/), I will be attempting to plug the system into our church projecter and have four people get on stage for some Wii Tennis action. =D

    At first Red Steel looked awesome, then in E3 it looked crappy and now it's steadily starting to look good again. I just read the wiimote is used as a phone too. During multiplayer, or something, you hear your objectives from the speaker but to hear it properly you have to put the controller next to your ear -- as you were using a phone. Creative.

    I would say there are good chances that the game will be from good to great. But I also say it will still take few years before developers are really able to take everything out of the controller and if this game doesn't hit hard, it's possible that it's sequals will.


    Wii Tennis only requires the wiimote though... so it's like extra $40 per a player.

    3 * $40 = $120

    Now that is pretty cool. Doesn't really effect the gameplay too much, I suppose (except in knowing stuff your opponents don't), but still rather interesting.

    Indeed. I was thinking of that earlier. And thanks to me getting fairly good paychecks recently + birthday in 13 days, I might just be able to pull off getting three controllers around the same day.

    This is gonna be awesome... :q

    I have a question, when do you guys think would be an appropiate time to attempt to get the Wii the day it comes out? Super early morning? Or am I overestimating the time?

    um, super early morning. I suggest camping there.

    As of right now I'm torn between a Red Steel and DBZ BT2 regarding what game I should get along side Twilight Princess. I am pretty much going to be forced to buy a bundle by FYE and from what I recall I'll have to get two launch titles alongside the Wii. Twilight Princess is a given, but as I said I'm torn between Steel and DBZ. Red Steel seems like it could be a hit or a dud, and DBZ honestly looks like fun, but I guess it comes down to which will be more fun. Any suggestions?

    I anticipated as much, I was just being optimistic. >> Oh well, I'll try my hardest to be their first! :O

    Has anyone heard any news on Pokemon Revolution? I saw a couple of screenshots for it a month or so again and haven't heard anything about it since.
