Brian - Are you picking up 12 this week?
I might... I heard it was a disappointment.
In terms of hardware, the wii is just a refresh of the gamecube. It doesn't offer the big performance jump of xbox->xbox360 or ps2->ps3. I hope you guys aren't expecting a much more powerful machine or anything. The controller is the biggest difference.
Yea, the point is that we (or I) really don't give two shits about hardware in a console. I don't have any desire to see more realistic sweat zones on football players' faces, or waving grass in the wind, and what not. I'd rather save the $350 and buy the game console with Mario, Zelda, etc.
