    Hey guys, & (Paintballer)

    Yup i traded up again, i went to my local game store the other day to pick up a new PS-2 game and this guy was playing Super Mario Galaxy on the stores Wii display unit, after watching him for about 10 minutes he offered me a try.
    Well needless to say that was it, i was in love all over again, almost as if i was back in 1996 and i just got home with my new Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64, it's hard to describe in words but it was the exact same feeling.
    It was then i knew that i would soon be trading up, so today i did just that, i traded up all my PS2 stuff for a nice chunk of store credit and was told by my game manager friend that he'll have a new Wii for me next week.
    Now i know i'll be accused of once again being an compulsive,impatient trader but this time it was more nostalgic than anything else and besides since i last owned the Wii over 6 months ago alot of titles have come out that i'm very interested in such as Metroid Prime 3, Medal of Honor Heroes 2, Madden and more, so i should be happy for quite some time.

    You should have sold it to a friend. :(

    If you sold it to a friend for the same amount of store credit you got, you would be just the same. But your friend would have gotten a 70% discount.

    Oh well....enjoy playing with your wii.

    I dont under stand why people trade there consoles back and forth

    Back when I worked in a game store there was one guy that did it on a fortnighly basis (from PSone to N64 then dreamcast then back to N64)
    It cost him more to keep selling them (no ware gave him a free exchange) than it did to keep them (he re-bourght the games he sold)

    that was nintendos plan too hypnotise you with motion controls. i don't know if you know this, but theres a giant slug in your brain telling yo to play wii, the only way to get it out is by sticking a candle in your ear. it was all nintendo's plan to get us to stick candles in our ears to kill the brainwashing snails.
