    I think I get it... They dont seem to be advertising that much, except on G4, and they say they will be the all around console for every targeted market. So right now, for launch I beleive, they are just letting word spread along the grapevine to the hardcore gamers, to keep them at bay, then let word spread form them into their families. Then a week or two later, youll have more customers wanting them...

    sorry i can go into detail as much now, Im cooking macaroni and cheese and the water is boiling!!!!

    not to mention how obvious it is with who G4 is backing up for this weekends console war... I mean, how many PS3 commercials have you seen compared to the Wii.... or maybe its just that the ps3 commercials scare me so much that my mined blocks them out, then floods with sunshine when I see a Wii commercial....

    I have seen commercials on every major network plus Cartoon Network and Comedy Central. They are pushing the hell out of the Wii right now. Not to mention the Wii specials on MTv and of course G4. They are getting the word out to the common folk, not just the hardcore gamer.

    I correct myself. The ads I saw were made by the publishers of the actual games, not Nintendo themselves. Nintendo is taking a different route for marketing as you can see from the IGN article above.

    Another good article I found about Nintendo's marketing strategy for the Wii below.

    I watch quite a bit of TV every day and I've never seen any Wii commercials...only Call Of Duty 3 which isn't a Wii commercial, it is just a commercial for Call of Duty on all platforms.

    I've seen a COD3 commercial made just for the Wii. As well as a Red Steel commercial and a few other Wii games. And i've seen those quite a few times on many different networks. It seems publishers are pushing the games for the Wii but Nintendo themselves are taking a different route in the marketing arena.

    I saw the Red Steel a few times last night. Good stuff. I love the little Wii symbol at the end with the bowing I's. Go Nintendo!
