    Toys R Us "Fabulous 15" list...

    Just read an interesting article on msn. Check it out:

    The important part of the article:

    Hot season for video gamers:
    Nintendo's Wii console will make its U.S. debut on November 19 in what is expected to be a hot holiday season for video game consoles; Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 is slated to hit U.S. stores November 17.

    But Nintendo, with its "Donkey Kong," "Mario Brothers" and "Pokemon" game franchises, has found success with a younger audience.

    "The PlayStation 3 is really geared to a savvy gaming enthusiast," said Kathleen Waugh, a spokeswoman for Toys "R" Us, of the decision to add the Wii to the list. "The Wii system appeals to young kids as well as adults."

    The Wii, priced at $250, features a motion-sensing controller that operates like a television remote control and lets players simulate swinging a bat, sword or tennis racquet.

    Waugh said one of Toys "R" Us' criteria of adding an item to its hot list is knowing it will have sufficient stock of the item for the holiday season, and she said that Toys "R" Us was able to ensure that by "taking a leadership position on the launch of Wii."

    The list:
