Its long of course, but give it a read. If anything is going to make you think twice, its probably reviews like this.

Sure there is, just read the whole thing. Just make sure you have the facts on everything before you make a purchase. I'm still looking forward to the Wii.

The only thing I got that was bad in the article was the lack of graphic improvement.

Everything else seemed ok. People are not used to playing games like Zelda and Madden with a Wiimote, it will take some time I am sure.

People are stupid for making opinions on the Wii before it's even released. Hype and speculation fuel the fanboy fires.

First the PS3, now this.

The PS3 will feature a button in the middle of the controler.  From what I hear, if you press it, it will activate a menu that will appear on the side of the screen.

The Wii has a hidden area that will allow the user to plug in a conroller.

Both great ideas, both taken from the Xbox 360.

I know someone who works at Gamestop and he got to go down to Indy to play the Wii and he said it was awesome.

So... are you saying that having the place the game goes covered is stolen from the snes? The xbox/ 360 has vibration, that's stolen from the N64 rumble pack.
It's 3D, thats stolen from snes as well!!!

Hmmm, the thing that disturbed me most was the sensitivity of the sensor bar to placement. That could be real trouble for the average person.

people when i need to concentrate but o well i still want the wii i burned out
like four computer joysticks by the time i was five playing doom and ive
gone threw a n64 an nes and a playstation as well as a playstation2 and
xbox so ya i love my video games and if i coud aford it i would buy all the
consoles buy the wii has the best price so it looks like its gonna be my next

No, the hidden aspect of it is though.
