We are about 1 week away until the Nintendo Wii and the Sony PS3 launch in the United States. Both companies sent out retail units and unboxing reports have appeared. I guess there are embargos in place to publish a full Sony PS3 or Nintendo Wii review.
Gizmodo (photo) unboxes a retail Sony PS3 and a Nintendo Wii at the same time at some roof top.
Engadget features a Wii unboxing video, which is good enough to make you jealous not be the one unboxing it. Engadget features also photos comparing the small Nintendo Wii, to the large Sony PS3 and medium sized Xbox 360.
