    Wii Rage !

    What happens if you let an angry toddler loose with a Wiimote?

    One smashed in TV


    Here's the kid in question displaying his war face

    I'd have been arrested if that kid did that to my TV. Only I am allowed to break my electronics over a video game! I remeber putting my fist through my original Nintendo and it's replacement over Tecom Bowl and RBI Baseball, respectively... Anger management is NOT an issue!

    Put a chain link fence in front of the TV, do more damage to the Wiimote than anything.

    Just look at that kids "war face". If you want to do something other than replace that 42 incher, then you'll have HIM to deal with!!! No thanks

    Speaking of Wii's here, I've got one coming in tomorrow! If you're after one, even if it does seem a bit pricy..The Wal-Mart Customer's Choice Bundle is a pretty good buy.
    You get 3 games, a wii points card, one accessory, another Wiimote, and best of all, a Wii.
    It comes up to $530 dollars, sad that to just get a PS3 is still 70 dollars more though.

    When the Wii first came out, a friend of mine bought that bundle online and then returned all the unopened games to the local store. So he ended up getting the Wii for the actual $249. I don't know if Wal Mart prevents that now. I lucked out and got one from Best Buy one Sunday morning.

    At least the Wii is still OK, so he didn't loose out completely.

    I also lucked out last night. I went out to Walmart just looking for a controller and right there was one Wii. Lucky for me I asked the guy behind the camera counter I wanted it because the guy waiting at the electronics register was waiting to get it. Right as I walked away with it I heard him asking the clerk for it. So I made a speedy getaway!

    If Sony removed the freaking BR from the PS3 it might have a more enticing price. Do like MicroSoft did and make it an accessory!!!
