A Perfect 10

With the release of Grand Theft Auto IV and Mario Kart Wii this could be one of the biggest months in the history of video games. Some say GTA IV could sell a record breaking 9 million copies in its first week.

Reviews of GTA IV have been stellar. The first two that I ran across (IGN and CNET) were both perfect 10's.

Mario Kart Wii will also sell big. And don't forget the millions of extra "Official Nintendo Wii Wheels" at $14.99 a pop!

And when the dust finally settles, Nintendo will launch Wii Fit with a mega-million dollar ad campaign. Some are predicting that the $90 game will become one of the biggest sellers of all time.

Received Mario Kart Wii this past weekend for MY birthday. Highly addictive! Even my wife, whose never spent more than 5 min. playing a video game, is into it. In fact, she "demanded" I go out and buy an extra wheel (which is harder to find than the Wii was when it first came out).

Glad to hear the game appeals to all. It looks really cool. I am a huge fan of the original Mario Kart on the SNES.

BTW, the USB Rocket Launcher works like a charm. Thanks! Also has incredibly LOUD and lifelike sound effects.

Happy belated B-day!
