Default The seriousness of videogamers!

I saw a commercial on the tv today for the nintendo Wii, and then out of curiosity I googled it and saw that it was out today. So then I go on to the Amazon.com website to see how much it costs and I saw this message:

We are currently out of stock: We sold out of our initial supply of the Wii on Sunday morning, November 19, in less than one minute. We expect to receive periodic shipments of the Wii from Nintendo throughout the holidays and we will post availability updates in this section of the product detail page as well as in the customer discussions below.

And then to think that the Nintendo Wii is the LEAST hyped of the new generation game consoles, probably a distant 3rd to PS/X-Box...

i know! and also this is probably not gonna sell as much as the ps3 or xbox 360, but it's gonna obliterate gamecube sales. It just shows how much video game sales in general are through the roof right now.

Actually although the Wii was the least hyped it was the most anticipated of the 3 systems.

Also its WAY cheaper than the other two. Most people don't have $400-$600 to spend on a video game system.

At E3 crowds literally ran past the PS3 display to check out the Wii.
