Hooray for uncompromising innovation: Wii !


Despite all the clamor over the unusual name (which I think is fittingly cute in an Asian way), I'm really looking forward to playing the games on the Nintendo Wii.

I'm not a gamer in any sense of the word and I haven't been excited about any video game console or video game for some time (think: Super Nintendo), but I really respect that business-wise, Nintendo is being so balls-to-the-walls disruptively innovative. And when I say innovative, I mean in the true sense of it: doing something that just hasn't been done before, unlike what Apple did with the iPod, which was taking an existing product, the mp3 player, and consolidating good ideas into a stylish product.

From a personal standpoint, I'm hoping to be able to play games with my parents (and of course my brother, but I'm already able to do that) and to have them find playing video games as entertaining and appealing as they currently find watching movies.
