We picked ourselves up a Nintendo Wii today. I can't remember the last time we got something (larger than a CD / movie) the day it came out.

After passing packs of people with sleeping bags and coolers who had camped out overnight we ended up going to Toys R Us, which had a whopping zero people outside it. Amid reports of 10 units being there we got in line, found out they really had 39, got ticket number 5 and went home to wait until 10:00 when the store actually opened.

Having played with the Wii for most of the day I can say the system has some real promise. The interface is very responsive, which was my biggest doubt, and although the initial games are a bit on the primitive side there is definetly plenty of room to grow and everything they do have is rock solid. You only need to spend 5 minutes in Wii Boxing to see they have something unique going on.

Other random things that are nice: usb ports, wi-fi connectivity, SD memory cards, GC compatibility.

    It starts out boring but give it 10 seconds and it'll be worth it.

    For anyone who's still trying to patch, I've placed the patch here. Just unzip that and run the updater.


    There. The documentation of my theorized Accident Anticipation Horn Self-Punch Phenomenon is complete.
