Went to Nintendo's Wii event, (it was pretty low key as usual), and had a fun time trying things out. I look forward to playing more Zelda, Monkeyball, and Rayman. I didn't wait for Red Steel, but I heard it was decent. I think I may wait for that though. Ubi is Canada love, but where are my gun attachments, Nintendo!?
I took some Nintendo Press event photos and a video clip of the commercials that will be (are?) running.
Sunday launch, I have my preorder, (no, Nintendo doesn't like giving me things like they do Kotaku and Penny Arcade), but I do think some of the fun is in checking the crowd out.
Though, Ninty peeps, if you're reading this, don't let this stop you from sending me an early Wii.
Xbox price drops?
Reading the in-box this morning, I gave a chuckle:
That's the very day PS3 launches in Canada? You don't say! So, those of you waiting for a price drop on the 360, looks like here's your chance before the holiday. Don't know when they'll do it again, but I'd think soon.
So tonight, I check out the possibilities of PS3. In contrast with Ninty's event, (can't help comparing the two - they're two days apart and the race is on), this will be another huge crazy party. I'm not sure how this will work though - press is in at 3, public at 7 for a concert, probably starting late and ending late - running into wee morning hours of Friday.
Hey, isn't Sony doing some sorta launch on Friday?
Possibility of early sales and/or giveaways: HIGH
I'll let you all know how it goes tomorrow. It might be that if you don't hear from me, I'm ah... busy er.. sick. Or something.
