i dont get it....
i mean this may be the final swansong for a wii player if they choose NOT to get a wii-u. If you do get a wii-u then the song plays on.

If you are just getting into "wii" gaming its best to get the wii-u instead of just the wii. not only have the library as it is of wii-u games but also the hundreds of original wii games to add to that library.

No...the best thing to do if you're just getting into wii gaming would be to buy a wii on the cheap. Then you can play through wii classics over many months. By the time you're done with that, we'll probably have more info on next he Sony and MS systems and you can make a better informed decision on whether or not to drop hundreds of dollars on a system that doesn't have many games right now.

And frankly, if you haven't played wii games you probably aren't a huge Nintendo fan. Why would these people buy a new system?

Also no wii "best of" list that excludes skyward sword deserves hits.

Gotta say, and I say this as a long time Zelda fan, with almost every game in my collection, I didn't like Skyward Sword.

I liked the Story and the art style, but think the gameplay relied too much on fetch quests and collecting those bloody tears.
