I'm almost done with Twilight Princess, so I'm on the market for a Wii now if I can get my grubby hands on one. Having a Gamecube slot on the back was a good idea.

Just gimme a PC any day. Less faffing about.
Do you mean the DS? I didn't find the Gamecube to be all that innovative, just pretty solid as a next generation system. Did it tout some sort of edge the competition didn't have? I honestly don't rememeber.
It was kind of a damn shame that Nintendo lost a lot of third party support starting with the N64, but they sorta brought it on themeselves with the legendary Sony Playstation debacle, as well as being difficult to work for I hear. Dunno if many people know about the origins of the Playstation. It's kind of a funny story. Not for Nintendo though. I like this story so I'm going to tell it anyway.
The Playstation was originally a joint project with Nintendo. But Nintendo wanted them to make an add on for the SNES (like the Sega CD), but Sony wanted it to be a completely separate system. Nintendo scrapped it and broke the contract agreement, so Sony went off and made their own system. Then every game franchise that wasn't Nintendo's went over to Sony. If it weren't for the strength of their first party franchises and Rare, they woulda been in serious trouble. Though I lost a lot of faith in Rare after Starfox Adventures was outsourced to them. That game is the definition of mediocrity. But I've talked about that way too any times so I'll stop there.
