Although they sold out of their initial shipment, at least Nintendo had the foresight to ship more than a handful of units to the entire US and our army of rabid console gamers. This does not detract from the Wii as a game system. In fact, it has something that the other consoles don’t have: the Wii Remote. Held in your hand, it detects where you are in 3-D space and what your motions are. How cool is that? Imagine really playing sports games now. The Wii boasts some cool specs: 512MB of flash, 2 USB ports, SD slot, an IBM brain, an ATI GPU, and WiFi connectivity. Be careful of getting addicted and then needing to see your doctor about chronic Wii pain!
