Dude, Red Steel is so FUCKING hard on the Wii.  I think that can go for any fps.  I player for more that an hour and i still haden't really gotten the hang of it.  I guess it's something you have to get used to.

Considering the other shooter is a port and Red Steel apparently sucks for many other reasons it isn't really surprising they didn't get the controls down very well.

Well, as a little experiment, I went out to all the game shops I could find in town at lunch, and asked to preorder a Wii. Every single one of them* said their preorders were full, and in a lot of the stores, their preorders were pretty much double the stock they were getting in the first month of release.

I also saw an article (that made the front page in the Manchester Evening News) that the Wii sold out on Amazon in under 60 seconds, making it the fastest selling item on Amazon ever.

The Wii is the must-have item this christmas, and I think it has a very big chance of topping the next-gen console race.




*I managed to find 12 shops that were doing preorders.. all were full.

The Xbox 360 went on sale on Amazon for 100 dollars. 1000 copies. Sold out within three seconds, I think between the 360 and the Wii the PS3 is totally doomed. :P

It's too bad to.  Sony is completly riding on the PS3 being a success.  It seems worth it to buy one to keep them in buisness.  I'm not a fan boy, but i always hate to see companies that aren't butt holes to get knocked out.

When i first played the Wii, I REALLY wanted it.  Then i didn't want it anymore.  Now i want it again.  Looks fun, and i can't make up my mind.  Quick, someone explain the pros and cons(if any)
