Wow, thanks for the full quote. Very exciting!
How cool would having two sets of controllers out of the box be?! I'm so sick of having to wait a week or two just to get a second controller for all my systems. And, not including the original controller isn't a big deal to me, although it does look like you might be able to play GC games with it....in which, personally, I think the classic controller for Wii would be much more comfortable than the original GC controller.
And, yes, it's less than 24 hours until the Japanese press conference, which is actually upsetting some people. A lot of people think it's going to dull down our press conference, because a lot of people here in the states have connections in Japan, and if they get the word moving about what was revealed THERE, the release here will be weakened severely. I'm still excited about it, and if anyone tries to tell me tomorrow about what was revealed at the Japanese conference.... I'll stab 'em in the face with a soldering iron. I am ignoring any spoilers...and I hope to watch full coverage of the Nintendo of America press conference.
I haven't been watching lately, so I could be wrong.... but, isn't it strange that G4 hasn't mentioned the conference at all? And don't have plans to cover it at all?
Sorry this is so long...trying to get a lot of ideas down. If you want to start a All Will Be Revealed club, that's awesome....but, sadly, the club will only last two days. lol. We're founding members! For two whole days! lol.
One more thing for people to talk about until the conference... how many people think that Nintendo have yet to reveal the full graphical capabilites of the Wii? And who actually thinks the videos they HAVE shown aren't next gen graphics? Hasn't anyone watched any of the new TP gameplay vids. Looks beautiful. Personally, I think they've been using the E3 souped up Gamecubes for all the press releases so far. I believe Thursday will be the first time people get to play on the actual Wii systems. Should be intense. Imagine if the already beautiful Zelda screens and vids we've seen are only a quarter of the full power of the finished product? Zelda would look so f'ing sweet with his hair and robe blowing in the wind, while each blade of grass and leaves of the trees are blowing along with them. Another question I have...and, it's probably a dumb one.... what about weather effects in Zelda?
ONE more thing....I promise. Am I the only one who is REALLY excited about the inclusion of the Opera web browser out of the box? I think Wii is definitely shaping up to blow away the 360 and the PS3, not only on the gameplay front, but as well as the online capabilities. Downloading DS demos, downloading old SNES games (Mario RPG anyone?), and constant updates 24/7.... which means future expansions of the already innumerous capabilities. I CAN'T STOP! I want to say so much. lol
That all should give you enough to hold you over till the 14th.
