Gamecube/Nintendo
Picked up the Wii this morning... been playing Wii Sports.

Console first impressions? Slick, slick console.

Bad first impressions? Nintendo didn't bother to ship either the component video cable (tv does progressive scan) OR the ethernet adapter to any of the local stores, so I'm having to wait to try those out until Nintendo ships them from their online store. Bad Nintendo, No Cookie.

Good first impressions? Even at 480i, in widescreen, the console is slick. Wii Sports isn't the most graphically impressive title, but it's fun to play in any mode.

I'll try out more games today and more impressions will come in as I can tear myself away to write them.
