Nintendo Wii hands-on preview

BT recently played the Wii and came to the rather startling conclusion that it may not be as good as everyone is making it out. Read on for our man's view on the console, the joypad and nunchuck, the games and to chuckle at some pictures of (fat) journalists looking silly.

Quote: So what does this really mean? I see it as most comparable to playing charades at Christmas. We've all been in the situation, it's the holiday season and the family is round. Everybody has had a few drinks and someone suggest playing charades. The game quickly degenerates into ridiculousness, everybody having a great time, until finally your Uncle Fred is tasked with miming the 'Full Monty' and ends up collapsed and naked, sprawled like Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man in the middle of the living room floor. The point I am trying to make is we're all happy to embarrass ourselves on special occasions, doing silly things and getting naked - but can Nintendo really convince us to do it on a day to day basis (not the naked part)? I have my concerns.

Check it out over here.
