Since I purchased a DS lite a while back, Nintendo has reinvigorated my interest in videogames. The last time I had any interest in videogames (as in not PC games) was a time when the best console was called “Super Nintendo”.
Enter the Wii. Point the remote control at where you want to go, make flicks of your wrist to reload your gun, and swing it like a sword. Like the name, the concept has a very odd appeal. Add in the ability to play the Nintendo and Sega games backlog using the Virtual Console (Super Metroid, anyone?) and we almost have a winner.
Then there’s the issue of DVDs. Apparently, Wii was initially supposed to be able to play DVDs. Then that feature was removed. Now Nintendo plans to either release a DVD capable Wii in the latter half of 2007, or maybe it’s a software upgrade that’ll work with existing Wiis.
Which is it? I, for one would like to be able to scrap all the stuff that’s currently below my TV with a single sexy black box.
Your thoughts: to Wii or not to Wii?
