    Most definitely one of if not the most popular console of all time. When I worked at best buy around when these were released, it was ridiculous, we thought that oh in a couple months you'll be able to come in any day of the week and pick one up. Boy were we wrong. I still have yet to walk into a Best Buy or any other electronics store and see a Wii sitting on the shelf.

    I walked into Target on two separate occasions and picked up Wii's. Plain dumb luck - but my son and niece are both getting one.

    Very nice, I'm assuming you're the one giving them the Wiis.

    Haha, whatever works for them. You're going to have a very happy son and a very happy niece.

    Release day, 12 hours in a chair overnight, no sleep. I worked the night before the release (working at Best Buy at the time) drove home and on the way I was like...you know what, screw it I want the Wii, drove back and got in line. Only console I have ever bought on release day.

    It's amazing that nearly a year after the release date, the sales for the Wii is still accelerating. Well done Ninty :yesnod:

    I'm happy to see Nintendo owning the gaming console sector. The Wii is just a great console for people of all ages.

    You'd think was the insane sales still going that 3rd party support would pick up.

    For a long time IGN and sites like that said it has been yet I don't see an increase in impressive 3rd party games.:mad5:

    Give the 3rd parties some time to get up to speed on the Wii's success, I'm not too worried, there are enough quality titles out that will keep the interest of gamers.

    The Wii is already very popular, so the demand can only increase during the Christmas period.
