    Ain't wikipedia great?, it has very up to date info on here, and is generally fairly good about it's features.

    I'll pick out some not very talked about bits for you to discuss...
    - I wondered how we will have to pay for the virtual console games. Pre-paid cards seem a good idea.

    - So the web-browser will support javascript, and be able to launch in seconds... ...impressive.

    - So you'll be able to hook up Game Boy Advance to the Wii in effect?! Nice!

    - Sounds pretty good. Hopefully this will encourage Nintendo to do more mature titles, without the fear of them getting sued, as youngsters theoretically won't be able to play the more violent and explicit games.

    - Development kits for the Wii cost $1,700 compared to PSX ($4000-$5000) and PS2 ($20,000). Nintendo certainly are trying to attract smaller software developers who are just starting out. Hopefully, their successes may mean that the industry is growing, rather than slowly getting eaten up by bigger developers (like EA, Ubisoft etc...).

    - I think I'll go for a blue one if I get the chance...

    - That sounds excellent.

    - That sounds like a lot of Wiis (or Wii, whatever the plural is).

    Ok, that's it. Talk amongst yourselves, whilst I go to bed and dream of the Wii. Night!

    Hudson soft if I'm not mistaken. The mascot for the console was Bonk. Haven't played it or even seen it personally.

    Glad everyone has enjoyed the info. :D

    wikipedia is not ALWAYS reliable, but 99% of the time it is, the reason why it has so much info is becasue anyone can post on it, change stuff and what not, its an enclyopedia for the people by the people

    *EDIT* yay 250! The price the Wii will be less thaN!
