    What was your reaction?

    I was in summer camp in July when my counsler brought it up. It sounded cool so I told my mom that I wanted one for Christmas.

    I thought it sounded rubbish and that Nintendo had lost the plot. I thought Wii Sports looked really poor and wouldn't be a match for the 360 or forthcoming PS3. After hearing numerous things about them I changed my mind though!

    i was going to get a playstation 3 but when i heard about the contoller i was like " CRAP CRAP !! AMAZING CONSOLE ! EVRYONE BUY! GAH HAHA NEOOOOHA!! "

    but it hasnt really lived up to my expectations as much as i hoped ...but its still the best conroller out there ! just give it time and on games like zelda, the movement we make with the wiimote, the sword will follow! and i cant wait....

    When I first heard it, it was called the revolution...and I was interested!
    Nintendo always has something up its sleeve so once I heard about the controller....I thought of the possibilities and what its capible of!
    Not only that but you could acces the internet in your room....get classic games on the VC and ect.! I also knew it was the cheepest console....so I was going to get it......but I'll get any Nintendo console only if Zelda and Mario are on it! I was always destined to be a Nintendo fanboy!

    I thought that the revolution remote looked like a funny tv remote, and that ps3 would be the way forward, that was along time ago.

    I thought it was going to be a piece of ****. I thought the motion sensing was just retarded. But the people at the 360 forum convinced me to get one.

    Its a Nintendo console. Doesn't that make it obvious that there is going to be a Zelda game released for it?

    A long while ago. I think around March 2006. I remember when the name Wii was introduced and it caused a big uproar.

    I have always been excited about the Wii. Ever since I heard about the Revolution, I was wishing for it. I knew it was going to be good because of Nintendo.

    I was tracking it when it was called the revolution and nobody new a lot about it. I got pictures and looked at articles. When I finally new what the controllers were like and things like that I thought cool. But, I was still planning on getting the PS3. However, after playing it at a friends house I was like "I HAVE TO GET THIS" so I got it shortly after:smilewinkgrin:

    Sometime fall 2005 I think, basically the first day it was announced.

    I can't believe some of you didn't hear about it till 06 lol.

    When I first heard the name I was like WTF! Then I saw the remote and said cool. But then I was like Kevin P. and said if I buy it I'm gonna have to find someone to go in there and buy me it.

    Me:Can I have a pre-order a Wii
    Everyone in the store:lol

    When i'm going to buy something, even the littlest things, I do a crapload of research on it. I was interested in the Rev. the second it was announced. I was looking to get a 360, but I delayed my gratification and I have not regretted it at all.

    it was early september, found out quite late...i wasnt really thinking about consoles at the time...i guess i would have gone for the 360 if the wii didnt come along. at first i didnt think much of it, as my friend always makes things out to be better than they are. but this time, he was right :D
