Cool wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

To keep their price point artificially low. Same thing XBOX is doing by now coming out with the external HD-DVD drive instead of including them at launch. If you figure in the price of the hd drive, it's about the same price as the ps3 with it's BR drive. Sneaky Sneaky. But at least they give you the option instead of cramming it down your throat like Sony. Especially for people without HD monitors.
Think about it, who is NOT going to buy another controller for the WII??? I suspect most people will need at least 2 controllers. Especially houses with kids. WII controllers seem pretty hi-tech so im sure it's prolly one of the most expensive parts of the wii since it won't be a graphics power house. Most of their R&D $ went into the controller I would bet. So I wasn't surprised about this. My 360 only came with one controller. Not a big deal.
No matter whet I will own all 3 systems I am still most excited about the wii

You sure it won't play dvd's? That's retarded, and will seriously hurt sales as parents would see a lot more value in buying it for their kid if it was a dvd player also. I could care less since it wouldn't be a next gen hd or br dvd player anyway. Really sucks the wii is only 480p. But at least that will free up a valubale HD input on my TV ! I'm really starting to think Sony is going to come in 3rd place in this war.

in the long run, sony will come in 2nd or 1st, wii will be 3rd eventually, i think, sounds crazy but history usually repeats itself...

Yeah, it's gunna be interesting to sit back and watch. I just have a really hard time seeing many parents buying a $600 machine and while a serious % of gamers are adults, still to a lot of people $600 in a fat chunck of cash to drop and lets face it... kids are a huge % of sales and I know when I was a kid my parents would have laughed so hard when I begged them asked for a $600 "video game system" that I would have been able to buy it with thier life insurance policy because they would have laughed themselfs to death. haha Kids are spoiled though now days. We'll see how it goes down!

Turtle Power !!!

Videos of actual people playing the Wii.

http://wii.com/jp/wii-experience/

The movements aren't nearly as exagerated as the other videos make them out to be.
