Weekend of Wii, Part I: Unpacking

Updated

The Weekend of Wii is starting early at iLounge: we had literally no idea that Nintendo’s brand-new game console was about to show up on our doorstep this morning, and there’s only one phrase that describes our feelings at the moment: pure excitement. As we’ve said before, Wii (pronounced like “we”) is the game console Apple would have released if gaming was a company priority – wireless, linked to an iTunes Store-like game download service, elegantly designed, and, oh yeah, glossy white.

We’re going to have lots more to say about Wii throughout the day, but we wanted to bring a ton of unpacking pictures to you, showing off the contents of the Wii box, plus shots of its accessory packages, and those for the Legend of Zelda, Excite Truck, and Wii Sports. This is going to be a fantastic weekend. Click below or on the headline for our first volley of photos.
