It works out doubly well for Gamestop, if you decide that you want to return the game because you bought it as a gift, and the person already had the game, or any other reason where you would normally be able to return it unopened, Gamestop will simply tell you that it has already been opened, so they can't accept it for a return. GENIUS!!!
either way, Nintendo didn't do a very good job of hyping the Wii at their press conference. Sure, a new console will be out next year sometime, but there's still the holiday season to look forward to, and outside of zelda, there doesn't seem to be anything coming out during that time period. This is extremely depressing for me, since i was considering getting a Wii to play the new zelda, and if there isn't anything else coming out around that time, i doubt i will purchase one.
the only thing that might entice me to buy a wii is another price drop, and even then, i'll only be picking up old games.
