    I won a Wii in a raffle. I only use the damn thing when I have a lot of friends over and they all say "Let's play Smash Bros". Honestly, I would own more games if they ever had a price drop.

If a large amount of their library appeared for $30 or less, I think the Wii might be able to finally compete with the real consoles.

    No gamecube controller ports? In my opinion, Super Smash Bros is by far the best Wii game there is, and I like it much better with the gamecube controller.

    I've tried Xbox and PS3 and found that the Wii is by far my favorite.

    Would this improve readability from the discs in any way? Just wondering...

    Oh yes, because sales equate quality, correct?

    Having taken one apart I'm curious how much smaller they can really make them.

    I understand why you would think that mindwraith. PS3 and X-Box are a little too mature for you.
