Wii lust

I blame the guys I do the podcast with, but while out for lunch getting cat food, I went into the neighboring evil empire (Wal-Mart) just for shits and giggles to see if they had a Wii. I felt dirty the moment I walked in there and creepy until I left.

Anyway, they didn't have any, which was no surprise, but they had a sign saying they "may" have some Wednesday morning at 8am.

So should I be one of "those people" and try to get one, or just wait until I randomly encounter one? I'm thinking I'll just wait. In fact, I decided that maybe I'll buy one as a reward for completing the forum app. (By "complete" I mean getting it "feature equivalent" to what I already have, though it'll already have a lot more inside with new features.)

I probably don't actually need the distraction.

My inner geek says that it wants a Wii, but I know that it just wants to play with one. If I get one it won't be till this spring when I have time & cash. Mario will also be out by then.

I Plan on getting one in Spring too. It's just too good to pass up.

Last I heard, Mario was a xmas 2007 game. :(

I am getting one after the new year that I will keep connected downstairs on the good TV. It is something I will play with my girlfriend and friends who stop over. I keep the 360 upstairs in my office all to myself, connected to my Dell LCD.

I thought I heard Mario was coming out in the spring.

Last update for Mario was sometime between March and the end of '07 (which basically means xmas '07). As for me, I am waiting on the Wii as well. I will get one, but my 360 currently has all my attention.

Last time my local best buy had a WII people weren't waiting in line all night to get one. I believe everyone in line when they unlocked the doors at 10am on a Sunday morning got one and they probably had a few left over. I wouldn't wait in line to get one.

Wii, the best money I've spent since, iPod. When you have friends over you will have just as much fun watching them as you will playing. I suggest getting one. If you do get one, get Rayman with it, just for more "shits and giggles".
