yeah... UK... I bet we get it just in time for christmas.... I'm starting to get really bored of the drout now... I mean come on! Have you seen the games available in your local games shop?? There is nothing I consider buying... seriously.. I'm getting Korinporina and Mercury Revolution free from a mate who works at Atari (but that doesnt count...)... I need something meaty to get my teeth in to... I'm gettin married on August too... so time after that will be limited (more than it is already!). COME ON NINTENDO!!!

I do agree that there is a bit of a games shortage atm.

But we have to look at the competition. 360 had an initial dry spell, and PS3 still lacks any killer title (well, in my opinion at least).

I reckon 2008 will be the year the WII truly gets the AAA titles out.
