    Hi,

    I'm thinking about purchasing a Wii. I don't know if I should wait for colored ones to come out (heard they come out in spring 2007 with technical upgrades) or I don't know if I should get one now.

    Does the Wii take all games? Gamecube games and playstation games? I'd like to play DDR on the Wii.

    Thanks!

    Well im not one to Flame people but it won't play PS2 games no. Only Gamecube and Wii games. In other words Nintendo Games.....

    You can also download OLD classics from Nes, Snes, N64 etc [They cost about £4 each]

    I think you should get one now..... No point waiting for colours it's pointless. White looks so sleek and cool anyways

    But if I wait for the colors, they will have technical upgrades and the controller will be better.

    But still...why not wait for colors and technical upgrades? It all seems good to me.

    who even said technical upgrades were coming??? In the most recent issue of Gamepro (the April ish) they ask Reggie Fils-Aime three questions, two of which are the following:

    GamePro : Any chance of an updated Wii in the future, a la the DS Lite?

    Reggie: We're always looking for ways to improve our systems...a premium version of the Wii with a DVD player will be available in the future in some markets. But it's a bit early to be discussing any potential evolution.

    Gamepro: And when are those multi-colored Wiis coming?

    Reggie: Maybe that question will have more relevance once we've managed to meet the overwhelming worldwide demand for our current color!

    So while they may be looking to add DVD to SOME of the Wiis, it hardly looks like they have any intentions of making technical upgrades any time soon. And as far as the colors go, it too looks like that's more in the future than the present. So if THAT is what you're waiting for, then you're going to be waiting for a long time. Besides, no company really makes "technical upgrades" once the console has been released. They just kind of tinker with the construction of the system to help bring down production costs (i.e. PSone and PStwo re-sizing), but the system inside is the same.

    Get the Wii now. It's super fun.

    Umm, zero? Lol. Actually it depends if it's a "package deal" ($300 normally with 2 or 3 games + Wii, wiimote & nunchuk + Wiisports) or the normal $250 one (Wii, wiimote & nunchuk + Wiisports).
