look, as much as i HATE 2 admit it, the gamecube was a dissapointing console. it was. we all know it was. ive gotten over that. u should 2. (btw, please dont start listing reasons y it was a good console, or anything like that). although it had some good games (ssmb melee kicked ass), overall, it wasnt that great.
nintendo has learned from its mistakes, however. they have a shitload of third party support. they have online play. their launch linup kicks ass, and with LOZ:TP, they cant lose. they have so many games, that they actually pushed back some of them from launch. NO MORE WEIRD CEL SHADED ANIME VERSION OF LOZ (look, if u liked it, fine, but i didnt). they fixed the problems with the last mario game (i just didnt like sunshine. i hate water levels, and that was like 1 big water level).
they also have kickass features. u can download games, browse the web, chat, and much, much more.
anyway, theres my opinion. Wii will not dissapoint.
