CNet previews Nintendo Wii gaming console and concludes that “could the Wii be the latest in that line of failures? We doubt it. While we have a few qualms, Nintendo’s combination of unique control features, an ultra-affordable price, and a huge back catalog of retro games make the system appealing for casual and enthusiast gamers alike. It’s priced very attractively for holiday buyers, and the buzz for the console has been hot. With Sony’s PlayStation 3 shipping in scarce quantities and the Xbox 360 continuing to aim for a more adult audience, Nintendo has a chance to reclaim the console crown with the Wii.”
