I wouldn't know, as far as I'm concerned they don't exist:

Nobody I know owns one
Nobody I know has talked to me about it
Haven't seen a demo in-stores

It has recycled CPU and GPU from the gamecube, just with higher clocks (terrible compared to CELL or Xenon) and it has a pathetic 88mb of total ram compared to 512mb.  Basically Wii is what nintendo should have came out with last gen.  It's not a next gen console, it's just a rehash with a dorky controller that doesn even work very well.  You'd have to really really like Nintendo games to buy a Wii because multiplatform games will all be much better on the other two consoles.

If you haven't bought a console in a few years, then Wii will be an interesting diversion for a short while. It isn't much of an upgrade over the old GameCube.

PS3 and 360 owners should not waste their money on a Wii. You'll grow tired of the Wii very quickly. Save your money for PS3 games. If you're a multi console owner, then get a PS3 and a 360 Elite, but avoid the Wii. The little white box is for kiddies and limited content games.

Its about triple the power that the GCN was, and the GCN was more powerful than the PS2 and about equal with the XBox.

Excite Truck has some really good graphics though. Smiley Tongue I can't wait until Manhunt 2 and SSBB comes out!
