    Yeah I would say by the looks of things Wii sports was a huge influence for most people in buying it - that and the overall theme of the Wii controls. A great game can make all the difference for a system, but I think the Wii would have done well at launch without Zelda.

    I wouldn't have bought the Wii if there was no Zelda, but I would have bought it later for Mario games.

    I bought the Wii based on the motion control concept. Zelda was an afterthought. I probably would have waited on the purchase had WiiSports not been available and not been so highly visible at launch.

    I bought it for a variety of reasons. To be honest Zelda was just the icing on the cake for me. I was more excited about the controller and great quality of games that were coming out with it such as Red Steel and Trauma Center. Plus I was excited about future games that I knew would be coming out for ONLY the Wii.

    if they didn't have zelda ready for launch (or had released it earlier for gc) they would've put a lot more effort into red steel and other launch titles. i guarantee you they would not have gone into launch w/o a truly great game.

    FWELR is right. Had they not had Zelda ready, they would have had Metroid or Mario ready instead.
