I got one too, with Zelda. I waited in line long enough that I'm embarrassed about it, haha.

It is really cool though, and the Wii Remote and Nunchuck work better than I expected... Ok, back to Zelda!

lol, no time at all...my birthday is Wed. so I guilt tripped my wife into going to Toys-r-us @ 6am to meet my sister who was waiting since 2am. My wife ended up being 26th in line, not too bad for a 4hr wait.

Just to put it out there, if anyone does run into a problem, don't just follow the directions online. Call the customer service line and they'll set you up with a brand new Wii in 3-4 days, with you shipping the defective one back AFTER you get a shiny new one.

Wii got it. Man is this thing hot. We picked it up at Midnight on Sat. night, played til about 3-4 AM then slept and picked it up again slept again and played some more. We've logged in about 8.5 hours total so far.

We got Wii Sports obviously...
Tennis is great
Bowling is Great
Baseball is good but niether of us have scored a run.
Golf is fun but takes some getting used to.
Boxing we played once and it was just bizarre. Gonna have to try that one again and like you said Jeff it's quite a workout.

We got Rayman Ravin Rabbids... This game is a blast. It's virtually all mini games but they're a lot of fun and a can be a bit challenging. It really gives you lessons on how to control the Wiimote. Very fun game. I can only imagine what it would be like with 4 people.

And Zelda... I'm about 2 hours in. Gameplay is great Very immersive. It's great but I don't want to say too much.

One thing I've noticed is there seem to be a lot of jaggies in the graphics which is odd since I'm running it in 480p. I popped in Metroid Prime (GCN) and that looked amazing in 480p so I'm kind of surprised by the jaggies. Anyone else noticing this?

We gotta exchange Wii codes tomorrow. I forgot to get mine off the system last night. Nulli and I have Mii's but we need to tweak them a bit more. We just made them quick to play some Sports.

Anyone try the Virtual Console yet? I want to pick up Zelda just to try it and I'd like to see if there's a way to transfer in a game save from a ROM. I doubt it but it'd be sweet.

I agree on the Wii sports...
