Not since the days of the Super Nintendo have we been this pumped up for a console launch. The Nintendo Wii ($250; Nov. 19) is the next-generation console from Nintendo, and it looks like a blast. With a revolutionary controller that lets you use movements to control games, Nintendo is shooting for gameplay that is more fun and communal, shunning better graphics for other innovations. Oh, and did we mention it comes with Wii Sports, which includes tennis, golf, baseball, bowling and boxing games? And you can play old Gamecube games on it, but the biggest — and to us, most exciting — feature is the Virtual Console, which will let you download and play NES, SNES, N64, TurboGrafx 16, and Genesis games, all from the Wii. Wii can't wait.
