[Official] I got a Wii!

Recommended Posts

MJPEG video with wav audio, in an avi container. That's it.

http://www.redkawa.com/videoconverters/wiivideo9/

I have noticed I can double the video bitrate in that program, at least with my SD card, and it still plays fine and looks quite a bit better.

I love my Wii.

Thanks. I'm planning on getting a new camera that supports SD and the correct video format so I can just take the memory out of the camera and pop it into my Wii :D

They went for sale on Amazon.com a little after 11am est. I bought one and a couple of games and they were sold out by the time I got back to the product page after checking out.

Call me lazy/out of shape, but my arm is killing me after 10 min of wiisports. also you must site DIRECTLY in front of the sensor bar of it will not work most of the time.

The drive isn't lighting up in blue, am I missing something?

I know where it's hidden and everything! It's nice that they didn't put a security seal on it because I can just open it up without anyone noticing :whistle:

Just got mine :) I showed up at Best Buy in Bellevue right at 8AM. They were walking down the line handing out tickets, and they got to me and gave me ticket #100. They had 101 to give out :)

It's updating itself... makes me wonder if their servers are being overwhelmed because it's going really slowly (looking at like 20 minutes to update it, whereas I've never seen a 360 update take more than 5-10 seconds!).

I wonder if it's smaller than the HD-DVD add-on...

Congrats everyone on getting your Wii's. Almost makes me want to run out and grab one. The Best Buy near me got nearly 200 of them. I'm curious to know if they're sold out yet.

I couldn't stop laughing at that picture. The wii is really small. Nice.

You wouldn't be a shrubbery by chance, would you?

Yeah, just needs a little duct tape =P

Seriously though, the consoles really do complement each other well aesthetically (and otherwise in my opinion).
