I would hardly call the Wiis functionality "limited". Some things arent flushed out fully, and there are a few things that are lacking (HD-DVD/etc.) But not upgradeable? Um... What about those USB ports on the back? Downloadable channels and firmware upgrades?

This is just mud-slinging... I challenge all of you not to turn this into a flame-fest.
