Farewell to the Wii: Memories of the Launch

PixlBit | "Even though there’s still plenty of excitement revolving around the launch of a new console, be it handheld or otherwise, it seems as though the days of week-long lines and potential riots have been all but killed off by the widespread use of pre-orders. Those launch line ups were quite the experience, but those early days were made even more memorable when the new hardware was unsealed and powered up for the first time. When the Wii Launched on November 19, 2006, nobody predicted it would be snapped up just as soon as it could be stocked on store shelves. We also weren’t sure what direction the innovative motion controls and classic Nintendo franchises would take us. To relive the elation and anticipation of the Wii Launch experience, some of the PixlBit crew thought it would be fun to share their own launch day memories." (Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Wii, Wii Sports)
