You'll have to let me know how games like COD3 work on the Wii. I heard for COD3 you couldn't go back to a standard controller config and had to use the Wii-mote motion function. Not sure I'd like that much. It might be alright for hack & slash RPG type games, but even that would get old after awhile.

I agree with your comments, forcefield, though I've only played a few hours into the game. I got the Collector's Edition when it first came out and have since been chomping at the bit to try it again. It's one of the few 360 games I have that doesn't require me to blast the sound on full or going into "full action mode" to enjoy it, making it ideal for play in my house. Of course I'll have to make an exception when Halo 3 "helmet edition" arrives in the mail...

By the way, my birthday is coming up, so I was able to pre-order a Wii bundle from GameStop. I finally got significant hands-on time with the Wii last weekend and was not overly impressed with the system's tracking abilities (it's an "approximation" for the most part, as I feared). However, actually having it, I can make sure all the variables are in my favor for an optimal experience. Still waiting for a non-mini-game epic motion sensing experience on that, but right now it seems that the most appealing games on the system to me right now are the mini-game collections... (and of course I'm sure I'll enjoy the online store a great deal like I do on Xbox Live)

Halo 3

Not sure I could wait for the mail to deliver Halo 3. When will you get it?

My buddies and I at work at going in early to take care of business and then around 1130 on Tue we'll head over to Best Buy and GameStop to get our pre-order of Halo 3. Then off to lunch to admire our boxes, and then to top it off, we're going to see the movie Resident Evil. I'll get home in time to talk to the wife and kids for maybe 5 mins and then load up Halo 3 to see how the single-player Campaign looks. Can't wait. Cheers
