    Pros
    -Resident Evil, GoldenEye, Mario, Zelda, Metroid, etc.
    Resi is on other formats as well.

    -GameCube backwards compatibility.
    The Gamecube has very few good games.

    -Built in web browser
    The web browser is rubbish.

    -Netflix
    Netflix is pointless to people that know where to watch films online.

    -Virtual Console
    Virtual Console was a good idea, until they stopped caring and don't give fans what they want.

    -Easily moddable
    Also not endorsed by Nintendo

    -WiiConnect24
    Wiiconnect24 is that even used?

    -Less system problems than 360 and PS3
    All new consoles have there problems.

    -Cheaper than 360 and PS3
    Not the 360

    -1 year warranty

    EVERYTHING NEW COMES WITH A WARRANTY!

    Cons
    -Online play uses 16 letter friend codes instead of gamertags
    Nintendont know what they are doing with online

    -Not HD
    HD is arse anyway

    -Very small hard drive
    Its not like you can store loads on it anyway

    -Lots of shovelware
    Every console has that

    -Official forums were shutdown
    How is that a downside of the Wii?

    -Limited third-party support
    There's loads of third party games on it.

    -No achievements
    There only for those that have to much time on there hands

    -No DVD/CD support
    If a home dont have a DVD player these days then theres something wrong.

    @ DPrinny. Are you kidding about the GC?? Theres some excellent games such as luigi's mansion, paper mario, melee, pikmin, wind waker, metroid prime, wario world, animal crossing, and mario sunshine!! I think gamers were asleep from 2000-2005 because no one seems to like those games. Also, the latest 360 model is like $50 more than the wii.

    I agree that the wii could benefit from an online profile with user names and achievements/trophies. It helps give longevity to a game, although the wii's plethora of family titles would probably have ridiculously easy ones.

    Look at the amount of crap thats on it.
    The proportion of good to crap is very poor.
    Very poor indeed.
    People seem to forget about the crap
    But then even the Wii has the worst good to crap ratio

    I think Pros and Cons is more dependent on how individual looks at the console. Dprinny thinks the Web Browser sucks, but I disagree and is what I am using to post this. Solace says HD is a con, but Dprinny diagrees, however, I think Nintendo could have been pro-active on that like they have with other consoles to add an add-on. As for DVD/CD, Solace, Why? You complain that the Wii isn't HD, but you're willing to watch a 480p movie? I have two players, an XBOX 360 which upconverts my movies to 720p for my HDTV and a DVD Recorder. Now for it to read my CDs thats a good question.

    Thank f***ing God its not an XBOX 360. 5 years later and now they're putting a Network Adapters into the console itself plus 4GB Memory internal Memory. How's XBOXLive? Do you enjoy paying $5 for free internet Multi-Player? Oh look at me, I'm talking while I play my game online.
