The Nintendo Wii launched among high fanfare after the insanely violent PS3 launch. Its amazing what having a number of consoles somewhat resembling the number needed does.


NEW YORK--Isaiah "Triforce" Johnson's eyes were feeling heavy, but even after getting little to no sleep over the past few days, the man could not help but smile very early on Sunday morning.
Johnson was sold the first Nintendo Wii at the Toys "R" Us in Times Square after waiting several days outside the retail giant's flagship store. And it wasn't just any normal store employee who rang the register; Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, did the honors of handing out the first system.

Rock on Nintendo. I'll have a Wii by the end of the year, that's for sure.
