European Wii

Nintendo have announced that on December 8th, European gamers with £179 or €249 in their pockets will be able to walk out of their local gamestore with a glistening fresh smelling Wii in their hands. Each unit will come with Wii Sports, a single Wii-mote and Nunchuk attachment. Games will cost between £34-£39 (49-50 Euros).

Why I am getting this dreadful sinking feeling there won't be enough for everyone? Time to cheer myself up, with a one minute trailer for Twilight Princess from majinvegata on youtube

The Elderly said...

hiya tomleecee, pretty special indeed a little window to a world of magic through the window in your sitting room......

DEITRIX said...

Im at work, but I will be back tomorrow to read this stuff... Finally some prices!!

The Elderly said...

I'll put the kettle on so.... oh darn the washup!.....

DEITRIX said...

Wow! That was pretty freakin' cool..! I might have to get a Wii just for that.....

gnome said...

Tea will outsurvive the Wii, I'm sure...

The Elderly said...

Indeed in my head right now, legend of zelda is the killer game for Wii, along with a metroid prime download on virtual console I could be sitting pretteeeeee happy on xmas day. That and the secret present i've stashed away for myself could mean it'll be my best gaming christmas ever......

tea could indeed survive the Wii, but what about it's descendants? we could have a wii console descendants outsurvive tea as we know it.... theoretically

gnome said...

Theoretically es, but what about the empirical/material truths that have to be incorporated into theory, if we ever want to change the world?

Tea wins. Hands down.

The Elderly said...

...........!! okay i'll give you that...... but spirtually Wii has the edge..... potentially there is much more in wii to facillitate a religious belief...... which just gave me a money spinning idea.....

(whispers to Gnome.....) the house of Wii..... sounds good huh!

gnome said...

What do you mean? Tea isn't god? Wii isn't a console?

House of Wii. Ah yes. Thereis one. In New Orleans I believe. They call it the house of Wii... Right.

The Elderly said...

Wii has the potential to invoke higher levels of being.... tea just tastes nice... ergo wii has more latent spirituality.

Damn, in new orleans you say, and there i thought I was original..... okay what about

the Order of Wii...

I could see myself attending meetings, offering sacrifices, getting disrobed with female Wiiers and the like....

gnome said...

Ah yes.. But there isn't Dixie-Wii Blues music. Besides Wii is being released just before my birthday. Guess I won't be in a playing, Order-organizing mood...

The Elderly said...

so it's either a signifcant birthday (as all gnome birthdays should be) like big or ickle 30/40, or do you just hate opening presents?

gnome said...

Nothing impressive really, but dangerously close to 30... And opening presents can be -admittedly- such a hassle...

The Elderly said...

..... I could open them for you... provided I can play with them first.... hope you dont'get bloody socks.....though!

gnome said...

I wouldn't. Statistically not. noone's ever bought me socks. Who knows... perhaps there is a god...

The Elderly said...

(elderly signs up as an official Gnome present opener....)

is it your birthday now! when's your birthday... how soon can i open presents... what are you getting for your birthday... how many presents will there be..

(elderly at this stage has lost all mental control and begins foaming at the ears....)

presseeeeeeeennnnnnnnnntttttssss!!!
