    Haha, I love them, they're making every aspect of this entire project as playfull as possible.

    I can't wait, and I think I'm actually quite likely to get one. It'll be my first console since a sega megadrive II, and with a bit of luck it'll be just as fun as my PC is.

    With my luck, it'll come out the same day I finish my MAME cabinet (which is still in thought bubble stages). Still no confirmed pricing yet though, right? A week after my birthday would be a bit of a shame, but if I manage to snag any birthday checks it could all work out.

    First console I've really wanted since the Playstation (and I only wanted that for FFVII). And first I'll have paid for myself since the Sega Genesis :)

    Or maybe someone is just yanking your chain?

    I couldn't figure out why Bit-tech didn't have a link to said press release. I managed to find it after a little digging. For those who can't be bothered to read it, here's the whole story of the "secret encoded message":
    Why is this non-story on the front page of Bit-tech? It's not like it's a slow news day.

    That would be damned fantastic as my birthday is the 19th :naughty:
    Gotta love nintendo tbh. They are the only ones who don't seem to constantly proclaim they are the best but instead let the product speak for itself.

    ::edit:: corrected some typos. :confused:

    I really don't think you'll need $500 for the Wii.

    Though I was originally skeptical at Nintendo's chances with this console, the cheap price, onvoatation over Sony and Micrsoft, the early release and the downfall(ing) of the PS3 have made me a fan of thsi new console, and though at first i won't get one, because of the cheap price and innovation, like many other people I would buy a Wii to supplement my other console....
    The price is great and I hope that the Wii is successful and creates a niche for itself in the world of family gaming and party games.
