    someone told me (hes not all that reliable but its the only reason i have) since ps3 was coming out, microsoft didnt want to feel left out with a lower number than 3 (xbox 2?) and nintendo was doing a "revolution", which 360 degrees. so yeah. i dont really believe him, but thats all i got
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I have actually quite gotten used to the name "Wii" though I see there are still plenty still confused by the name.

    But like it's just such a different way of naming than nintendo has used before that even getting after used to it, when I think about it, it seems strange. At least it isn't the "super gamecube" though

    Yeah, and now it seems that Nintendo is now being a lot more creative with their product names, like the gamecube, DS, and Wii for example.

    Whats a togg incident? Im not interesting in Wii unless it is actually truly impressive. Yeah ps3 isnt classy but oh well. What else would they call it? The playstation T-100? Im only here to like see whats gonna be on the Wii and how many people think it will beat the 360 or ps3. No offense people I personally think it won't, just because gamecube didn't win last time and it sounds like Sony has been working their ass off on the ps3. Im more into shooters and action and war games and all. Like RE, Metal gear Solid, Hitman, Red Faction, Medal Of Honour, Socom, Rainbow Six, Killzone, Devil may cry... Xbox games I like are of course Halo and ninja gaiden. Basically though ps2 had every xbox game except halo and ninja gaiden which is why I wont be getting a 360. Ps3 has more unique games on it that are only for it. And u have to pay to play original games on xbox360, like u have to pay to get it backwards compatible which is a lame way for microsoft to make money. As for gamecube, no offense I didn't like it. Only interesting games it had were metroid prime and the resident evil games and the metal gear solid 1. And i dont buy consoles for only like 4 games (but i made the mistake of buying an xbox).

    Actully the term 360 means that it revolves around you so just clearing that up
    360 is awsome,but the Wii is just so cuddly!

    ahhhh, that makes so much more sense now. but its hardly self explanitory.
