Madden is a real success. It has no competition, but still, I'm sure it's only people in North American buying it.

I am surprised how well the wii has done. It has last gen graphics and hardware. I guess kids like it and alot of first time casual gamers have bought it. It is a good cosole to have if you are having a party. i wonder how many times people play it once the novelty has worn off?

I think a lot of Wii's are collecting dust. I know a lot of older people that bought Wii's and played it a few times and now it just sits there. And I come across more older people who tell me they're gonna get "one of them Nintendo....Wii??" for Christmas.

If they were asking me, I'd tell them not to bother, but they look so excited.
