It looks alright the Wii, that remote is going to be more awkward than you think though. Not only that, it doesn't actually work on LCD TV's, but Nintendo do have a solution for that, that's for the remote to pick up on these sensor things you stick on your TV, I can imagine it not to work as accurate on that though.
This is nonsense. Whatever TV you're going to be using a Wii on, you will need the sensor. There is one sensor and here it is.....



From ALL reports the 'wand' is 100% accurate.

Not sure if anyone is interested but Game and Gameplay.co.uk are now taking pre-orders for the Wii. I've ordered one from Gameplay but both are really good realible companies!

Indeed I have pre-ordered from gameplay.co.uk. Aswell as the Wii, I ordered 2 joypads, a second nunchuck, a second wand, Zelda, Excite Truck, Monkey Ball and Red Steel.

Awesomeness overload!

EDIT: I've just had a look at gameplay, and have realised that I haven't actually ordered Excite-truck! In fact, I've never even heard of the game I ordered. In my excitetruckment I've confused, said exciting truck game for a 4 x 4 game

I plumped for Gameplay too, and went for basically the same bundle as Wyndorf but with Rayman instead of Monster 4X4.

I wonder if the Wii will be a revolution for gaming nerds. With a console where you actually work up a sweat playing games, could their be a new generation of fit atheltic nerds. The dawn of nerds is almost upon us

Pre-ordered mine from Gameplay. I'm really looking forward to this, Especially with the virtual console, Being able to play all the old NES, SNES, N64 and some Mega Drive games again will be awesome.

The Wii will have a online virtual console, allowing you to play NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, SEGA and some other console I forget the name of on your Wii.

Seems that way :p

You'll be able to purchase games from those systems via the virtual console and then download them onto the Wii and play :)

EDIT: Was beaten to it :(

The web browser and the wii channels do kinda appeal to me, but i'll wait for the price to drop by about 50quid and better games
