Although I'm not sure I'll get a Wii, I am interested in it and will probably take the opportunity to give it a spin at a friend's place soon. Happened to come across this article which was rather amusing, hope it hasn't been mentioned yet in the thread.

Personally I *might* buy a Wii at some point if enough games pique my interest, but my initial interest is in the PS3. Can't really afford anything at the moment though, and was planning to wait with a PS3 until the price drops anyway. Still, can't wait to try out Zelda.

I heard that they are recalling all Wii controller strips for better ones on the news.

its not a "recall" its technically a "voluntary replacement" because legally nintendo does not have to replace the straps, and the customers are not required to contact nintendo for the replacement, nor send in the old straps.

Its not a health hazard in a legal sense either, nintendo is covered (well in the rest of the world, dunno about sue-you USA).

However ifyou want a free stuff, nintendo will ship you one, and you can stil lkeep your old one.

I think that comic refers to people working out too much with the Wii when they're not used to working out, instead of the strap.

Hmm forgot to post my review of super swing golf anyway it's a fun game but it shows problems when putting and when you getting started you'll pry hook the ball but once you get past the learning curve it's great fun.

It's probably best to wait until after Christmas with that, as people trying to get it as a Christmas gift is probably what's driving the price up. Heck, a few days ago I even spotted someone selling a Wii for $100,000 which he'll hand deliver in a Santa suit

I figure prices will be much more reasonble early-late January.

Yes I saw that I can't wait till the beta internet channel and the news channel and before 07 too . Personally I love the forcast channel it saves me from watching those news shows and I can check out other peoples weather too. Hopefully we'll see wiiconnect24 sometime in janurary.

Overall, I like the Forecast channel, but I have a few minor grievances (thankfully, these are the sorts of things they could fix in updates later). For example, my "current weather" is 12+ hours off -- rather than showing 6:00pm (or something more recent), it's showing what the weather was like at 6:00am. This in spite of the fact that it has recently updated the weather data. Earlier this afternoon it was showing the "current weather" at midnight. Not too helpful. I also noticed that the five-day forecast is only available in your home country/region; in my case, it's only available for cities in Canada. Why? I mean, you're on the Internet already, so go fetch it! I can see not downloading it as part of the WiiConnect24 blasts (since that's a lot of extra data), but "not available" is a bit of a lie. I also wonder... I see surprisingly few U.S. cities, but is that just because I'm not in the U.S.? I mean, you'd think there'd be more than 2 or 3 cities per state.

All in all, though, it is neat. Hopefully they'll keep refining it as time goes on. Looking forward to the Internet and News channels.

Well, actually, WiiConnect24 is already there. That's just the nickname for the way it retrieves data/updates when your console is in standby mode. For example, if a new message is downloaded to your Wii console via WiiConnect24, you'll notice the disc drive start to glow blue, inviting you to turn the console on and see what's new. (You probably received a message from Nintendo today, in fact, to let you know about the new channel -- at least, I did.)
