The Nintendo Wii console is finally available in the U.S. today.

Engadget published some live coverage of the launch in New York.
We're hanging out at Toys "R" Us Times Square this evening, getting all ready for a bazillion people to get their respective Wii on. As of 9PM the line is already mind boggling, but the word is Toys "R" Us is stocked with 5,000 7,000 of the dang things for the launch, so there are going to be a lot of people going home happy this evening. Keep watching this space for more of the action as it unfolds, and make sure to peep the pics after the break.
More coverage at Shacknews, IGN, GameSpot and 1UP.
