All that the Wii is a re-designed gamecube with a motion sensor controller.
No wonder they are making money as they are probably selling off old cubes in a Wii box

Of course their making money from that start because the Wii is an overpriced re hashed last gen system with motion controlers. Everyone with SDTV enjoy gamecube 1.2

Nintendo dose no have to use smoke and hype to sell the Wii. The whole company and the Wii it's self is very respectful and true to the game community. It is a new type of Game Cube witch is not that bad. The game cube was not as popular but was more powerful than the PS2. HD is cool but not so mainstream or as important as it may seem.

I like the Wii and Nintendo is getting $250.00 cash from me too.

www.nextgenwars.com the Wii will out sell the PS3 well into 2007.
