    You aren't a sucker if you enjoy it enough for it to be worth your money.

    so I got to play this game the other day.

    verdict - fun game, but the wheel blows

    I'm liking the wheel more now that I've played with it a bit. It definitely changes the game by changing the way you play it. But I think in the long run I like it.

    No, of course not. But this cheapest gaming system stuff is ridiculous. They are releasing a Wii-sabre for Star Wars - Force Unleashed I believe.

    I own both a 360 and Wii and I can say that peripherals have become a pain in the royal keister - i feel like buying that crap is the next closest thing to burning your hard earned money

    however, I can proudly say the only thing I've bought is a headset for the 360

    the Wii wheel (or the WiiL) comes with the game
    nobody got suckered into buying a free included peripheral

    fwiw, the wheel is not necessary
    all one has to do is hold the WiiMote sideways for the same effect

    I was surprised, but it actually is easier to play with the wheel as opposed to just holding the controller without it. I think it's because you can more naturally tell how hard you're turning. I'm still adjusting to the new control, but I've been surprised to discover that I like the wheel.

    I also have mario kart.

    The only money I have spent on the wii is

    a) an extra wiimote (20€)
    b) money for games

    I have quite a few games, and still havent reached ps3 price level... and I still play a lot with a LOT of people...

    And still dont feel the need of a blueray player...

    Gunny, its ok if you like the ps3 more than the wii, but dont try to bring it down making things up.

    I bought it because I played at someones house and found it fun and participative.

    I used to own a master system 1st, a megadrive 2nd, a psone, I never got the n64 but liked it nor the gamecube.

    A year before, someone bought me a PS2, which I found couldn´t do nothing my pc already could with two usb game pads... so I turned it back at the store. Same feeling with the PS3. Nothing a PC with a great graphic card can´t do.

    it obvious wii is winning that battle.

    Mario is a) Fun b) A quality seal c) A whore... like any other videogame popular character... for example, homer simpson.

    This *******s squeeze well their oranges for juice, but is up to us wheter or not to buy it.

    Xbox - big clunky controller at launch / s-controller releases later

    360- separate $100 add on for wireless / $200 hd-dvd add on / stock wirelss controllers non-rechargeable - 120gbHDD a ridiculous $179

    Sony is about to get consumers with the DualShock3 for like $50 a pop, when it should have been the launch controller instead of the SixAxis (which I haven't liked for any games that use it (Lair / Folklore / Motorstorm)


    I'm going to hand it to Sony for assisting the masses though
    - PSN is a free service / wireless b/g is built in
    (Xbox Live requires an annual fee and either a hard-wired connection or optional wireless extender)
    -the Ps3 is updated quite regularly, and the latest BluRay updates available to owners makes it a better unit than Sony's stand alone players
    +1 for wireless LAN BluRay firmware updates
    +1 for support of aftermarket HDD

    Nintendo's peripherals are really nothing but shells
    the tennis rackt/golf club/baseball bat/wheel/shotgun cradle/crossbow/etc... are just holder for the WiiMote ..... then again, they're not very expensive (the Crossbow is like $15 and comes with a game) and the Wheel is included with KArt
    where they're gonna get people is on the Balance Board, but even at $90, you're getting the unit plus the software, and there are games that are already scheduled for release that will use the Board, so it'll get more use with other games (skate/ ski/ dance)
    same thing goes for the wheel, it can be used with driving/ flight/ wave/ etc.. titles
