I'm purchasing my Wii tomorrow morning, first thing, and I'm getting Zelda. I don't really have the money to buy more than that and an additional Remote and Nunchuk, but Zelda should be able to keep me occupied for a while.

It?s pretty awesome!!!!

I had some friends at EB at the mall, and they let me come in at 11 and wait to get a wii. I didn?t preorder the wii or any games and I was still able to get it, a controller and Zelda eas:Dy :D

I waited at the mall from 10 30 till around 12 15.. It was fun a lot of ppl were talking about a bunch of different topics, and almost everyone had a DS so we played an 8 player match of Mario k:Dt :D

Anyways the wii is pretty sweet, the controls are way nice and they are configurable too... I just got done updating it and connecting and everything...

So far so good..

If any one has questions, I?m going to be up for a couple of :)urs :)

:cool::cool:

I never had any doubt I was going to get wii. but even saying that so far its blowing my mind how nice it is. beats even my fanboy expectations. so small and so cool. and this is launch. wait till all new channels open up and more games come out! this is only day 1 :D :D :yes: :woot:

Graphics-wise, are they better or the same as the Gamecube like many have said?

Graphics aren't the most important thing for me as long as the gameplay is good, I don't care. I'm just asking because so many people say the only really new thing is internet connectivity and the controller.

May I ask at what times does the blue LED illuminate?

Is it only at start-up, and does it indeed act as a sort of 'status indicator' for WiiConnect?

People are saying it lights up for you to put a disc in, but then you see videos of people running in the menu, and the light is off, so I dont get it. Is it perhaps, when the disc slot is empty??

thanks, hope youre having fun!

it lights up when you first turn it on, then when you insert a disc but not while playing the disc. then it pulsates on and off when connecting to wii connect

here is link to video of pulsating.. i took it with crappy camera few min ago so sorry for quality
