When the Wii was first announced I was very skeptical of Nintendo's decision making. After owning, and being severely disappointed with the GameCube, I thought this was going to be Nintendo's swan song. However, I like almost everyone else on the planet, was proven wrong. Nintendo realized that the market wasn't necessarily asking for a console with a lot of power, but a console that offered them something new and innovating. Enter the Wii and its Wiimote. The Wiimote offered endless possibilities; the accuracy that was promised was mind-blowing. This console could allow you to simulate tennis, baseball, bowling, boxing, accurately control Link, Mario, Samus, and most importantly, and I can't emphasize this enough, you could finally act out your dreams of being a freaking Jedi!!! I mean come on, a Jedi. What a brilliant idea.
