How hard is is to make a repackaged gamecube? We're talking about a device that is the hardware equivallent of a PC from about 2 years ago that can't even play DVDs. It's pathetic. I know I'm not an expert on manufacturing processes, but they should have increased production by now. IT'S BEEN ALMOST A FULL YEAR and they knew it was selling like hot cakes after a while.

Well then perhaps it's not simply a repackaged Gamecube, right? Accelerometers and associated motion-sensitive hardware were never in such high demand as they are now due to the Wii.

You might have a point if the Wii had a DVD drive instead of motion-sensitive controls.

Zombies they aren't even talking about hardware they are talking about Wii game discs. Which in talking about that is a bit hard to understand. Anywho... Midway games for the Wii were hardly any blockbusters so I'm not sure who they are trying to fool with that one.
