Gamers Line Up For Wii Debut

Nintendo's latest gaming machine made its debut today as gamers packed store lines just to get their hands on one. The Nintendo Wii has caught the interest of gamers thanks to it's innovative motion sensing controller, and affordable price(when compared to Sony's PS3 and Microsoft's XBox 360). Unlike the Playstation 3 launch which happened earlier in the week, the Wii launch seems to be void of reports of violence. Nintendo has also made sure to have a much larger supply of units than their competitors provided at launch.

""I had to get it first," said Johnson, who was dressed in a black leather Nintendo coat and "Legend of Zelda" sweatshirt. He immediately took the Wii out of its box and had Fils-Aime autograph it. The Nintendo Wii launch comes two days after Sony's (Charts) PlayStation 3 hit the U.S. market, setting the stage for a three-way video game console showdown this holiday season between the Wii, the PS3 and Microsoft Corp.'s (Charts) already available Xbox 360."
