I’m a fan of the guys and gals over at Ars Technica; for one thing, they’re incomparably thorough when it comes to reviewing the latest projects; for another, they’re knowledgeable about the topics they discuss; and for a third, they’re damn funny to boot. So when they popped out
a review of Nintendo’s Wii, Gadgetbox’s #1 fetish object, was there any chance I wouldn’t link to it? No, not much.
The Wii ends up scoring an 8, with particular likes being the clean design, the low price, and, of course, the innovative and intuitive controls. The cons? Graphics that don’t look as good as its competitor, lack of HDTV integration, and not-yet-present online features.
