For the Love of Wii. . .

As a family with a teenage boy, our weekend was all about this:

Sherry 153

The new game system from Nintendo went on sale today. We all stayed up and headed over to Fred Meyer for the 12:01 release. . .and arrived just after they gave out their last ticket. James' friend Collin came running up to give us the bad news--tempered by his own excitement that they were ticket-holders number 47 out of 51. We headed over to Target to double-check their opening time, and there were some eager-looking high school boys getting pillows and sleeping bags out of their cars. We aren't the camping out all night in line types, but John and James did get up at 5:30 this morning, and they were numbers 12 and 13 in line (well, 19 and 20 after the high school boys let some friends cut in line with them,) with 23 game consoles available. When they came home James collapsed in bed to make up for lost sleep couldn't get it plugged in fast enough.

I see it comes with the biometric-sensing remote with wrist-strap. The next version will have the full neural implant thing and will be worn like a baseball cap.
