I4U Gadget of the Year 2006: Nintendo Wii

I4U News selects the Nintendo Wii as the Gadget of the Year.

This is of course no big surprise to most of you. There are several reasons why we selected the Wii as our Gadget of the year. It starts with the amount of visits Wii related news posts generated. The Wii topic was ultra-hot during most of the year. PS3 news came in on 2nd place.
Another reason is the extremely positive response you can read everywhere about playing the Wii. My personal experience playing Wii over the Holidays was a lot of fun.
My PS3 in contrast is already catching dust waiting for a killer game.

The 3rd reason is that Nintendo was able to do a reasonably good global launch. All around the globe a lot of people got a Wii. Sure there are still many who did not get one yet, but compared to the Xbox 360 launch and the Sony PS3 launch the Wii launch was good. Our fourth reason is that our Wii Gadget model photos featuring Leah had the most page views of all I4U Gadget models this year. It is a bit unfair, as the PS3 shoot has not been published yet (End of January 2007).

Did I mention yet that the Wii is fun to play for everyone, not just for gamers with HDTVs? All in all many reasons for us to name the Wii our I4U Gadget of the Year - Congratulations!
