nintendo-wii-2.jpgWith an expected release date of late November 2006, details of Nintendo’s latest console are causing a growing wave of speculation. Much of it is in the context of how different it is from Sony’s next console, the PS3, which is slated for release at a similar time.
The disparity in the length of queues to try out the Wii and PS3 at E3 2006 have become a thing of geek legend. And the price differences (c. £450 vs £150) are equally significant when considering items that are going to be at the top of many people’s Christmas lists this year!
To view some of the reasons why I believe that the Wii is going to be a Christmas hit, visit this link for a five-minute video montage of some Nintendo ads.
And if you’re willing to turn down your politically correct antennae, this perceptive and hilarious spoof of the recent Apple ads will tell you more about the differences between the consoles than any comparison charts or discussion forums will!
