    Wii Info and News
    For the veterans:
    ------The old thread got trashed because the mods were nice and let us go to 3,000 posts when they were supposed to trash that at 2,000. So, I made a new, identical thread. NOW STAY ON TOPIC! :yell


    The Gaming Department here at NF used to be a sleepy place. Now it's active. Too active. We've got too many news threads that pop up all over the place and clutter up. Then, that news is lost and forgetten.

    To avoid all this and keep a long, healthy discussion going I've decided to make a thread dedicated solely to news updates on whatever we hear about Nintendo's Wii. <-Shut up. :p

    I'll update this first post with links everytime a new piece of information appears. Please post all news you find and hasn't been discussed here before here. Please keep it reasonably current. Also, no trolling. And of course you can post here, silly peoples. :p


    Update :eek:
    SSJ3 Goku plays with his Wii before we do (his friend played with his Wii, too).



    Wii + 1 Wii-Mote + Nun-chuck + WiiSports = 250$
    Wii + 1 Wii-Mote + Nun-chuck = 212$ (JPN)
    Wii-mote = 40$
    Nin-chuck = 20$

    Latest News!
    --------------
    IGN crew takes on the Wii.



    Wii Virtual Console Region Locked. :(

    No individual friend codes for games on the Wii!


    Acknowledgements:

    This thread has become awesome and with its sister threads, the PS3 Thread and the 360 Thread, it has helped clean up and redefine the Gaming Department. This place used to be chaotic, and we'd lose info easily, and casuals wouldn't know what's up.

    Thanks to you guys, the leechers, the casuals, the hardcore, the contributors, the usuals, and yes, the idiots and flamebaiters, this thread has grown beyond what I thought it could reach.

    I've decided to acknowledge no one, because it's unfair to leave some out.

    But in all seriousness, let's keep this ontopic, or this will get locked. The limit for any thread is 2,000, and we passed that handily.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So, anyone in here considering getting Second Opinion? I've heard nothing but good news.

    ._. DS and CCT were right.

    Anyhow, tell me, who here wants to hook up online and play against each other on the Wii? I certainly look forward to it. :D

    Off-topic: I asked Mike, and he was like "meh." Also, we had 5 people. 6 would have been a bit much. Scrub.

    Kay, but your input on the matter of it being JUST a page isn't really needed. Keep your pointless input on a fanbase out of a thread for said fanbase, cause that is just asking for phailure.

    Ugh. It is a convo thread. I'm so disappointed.

    Also, if you look a few threads down, the old 3,007 post, 151 page thread is still alive and kicking.

    Sony bashes Nintendo claiming that the Wii costs a lot of money for entertainment, yet...isn't the PS3 almost well over double in some areas?

    Lol, I don't play in any crazy lighted areas anyway. If you have that kind of light going on, you're gonna have a glare on your TV, so who would wanna play there anyway?

    LOL, exactly. Besides gaming stores, who plays their gaming systems in direct sunlight? Do you like to have the sun glaring on your TV screen while you play? Think about where you play games and realize unless you live in a greenhouse or a room with 4 halogen lamps, you're fine.

    I play my games in complete darkness only. So, no worries there. Just wanted to let you guys know that light could potentially mess up the sensor bar. Not that big a deal. :amuse

    So the sunlight has to be shining directly on the sensor bar? I guess that's a relief. :amuse

    It wouldn't be too hard to keep it away from the sensor bar, if I had to cover it, I mean look at how small it is. :amuse

    They're just trying to make a stereotype true, that all gamers are pale and never go in the sun.

    Except David. He can't get pale. xDD
