The question is...  
Who doesn't want a console you can make piss and dick jokes about?

Well, females are much less likely to:

A) Want a console.
B) Want to make piss and dick jokes.

So, it's really a case of "a little from column a, a little from column b", right?

I'm quite happy with our X Box... ;)

I'm happy with my Xbox too, but I still wanna Wii.

Watch this video about HOW you actually play games on this console, and you might just change your mind:

Clicky clicky

A) Total lack of any actual gamplay footage. So, it's all hype, with no substance. Hopefully E3 will correct that.

B) Some of the activities in that video I think would actually be really bad with the motion sensor controller; i.e. playing a side-scrolling Mario game.

C) A lot of it was really quite unrealistic, like the chicks killing flies weren't even looking at the screen.

I mean, obviously I'm excited about this console, but I think you need to be careful about taking that sort of marketing at face value.

Saying to someone "It's a new console by Nintendo, but with a cool controller that you wave around" however, gives them no idea whatsoever as to how different and possibly more fun than their Xbox it will be.

That's true. As I say, hopefully we'll have more to go on after E3.

Damn. I should have known you two would beat me to this. ^_^;;

"Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else."

Hmm. sounds corrosive. Considered drinking more water?

Nah, the console is just really sturdy, so you can use it as a sledgehammer.
