Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

December 24, 2008 -

Pwn Or Die has posted a video which shows a bunch of kids wigging out as they tear the Christmas wrapping from a Wii.

John Herrman from Gizmodo watched the video and seems on target with this comment:

Remember Nintendo 64 kid? Apparently that was just the tip of the iceberg. Much kudos if you can sit through this whole video without weeping, returning everyone's gifts or scheduling a vasectomy.

Notice how all the kids there have still yet to hit puberty. Just goes to show you the wii is a kiddie console.

The last kid on the video actually got a PS3.  And I can't believe I actually watched the whole video.  All those kids going ape seriously had me considering the Chicken Scissors.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

The teens and adults were just as excited as the kids to get the system.  I just hope the parents bought them some additional games to go with the system as its really no fun if you get a system with only wii sports.  Personally I would be more excited with the games I would recieve with the system.  I also hope that these people recieving the gift of Wii do not ebay their systems in 2 months when they realize its not all that they thought it would be.

I was waiting for one of their throats to rupture and start spewing out blood. Alas, I was disapointed.

I got my girlfriend a Wii for Christmas, and I totally expect her to go ape shit when she opens it. And she's 28!

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

My 2-year old niece behaved relatively similar over some tinkerbell toys she got for the holiday, some few hours ago...

 

Overly exaggerated, yes. Almost annoying, yes. Exclusive or even related to videogames, no.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

 Yeah my daughter loved her tinkerbell baby doll.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

Atleast one of these is totally fake (the one where the older kid mimics the 64 kid). I didn't find this video bad at all - just a bunch of kids super psyched to get the present they wanted the most - if anyone says they were different then they are a liar.

The best part? "I'M CHOKING ON MY SPIT!" lol

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

Screw the scheduling where's my scalpel gone?

Wow! A zeppelin!

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

Yes, thats right, kids all around the world, are having a Wii.

 

What?

 

In other news, that video is making me feel sorta ill.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

Wish I was a kid then. I wouldn't go out and GET a Wii, but I wouldn't mind be given one. Same with the PS3. IT's not a money thing, more than me just liking the 360 better. :)

Edit: Oh, and my NES, and SNES. I didn't really think too much of the N64 and right now, even the Wii compared to them.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

That makes me want to get one of those fake Wii boxes from Gamestop and put an N64 in it. Then give it to someone.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

I'm totally gonna fake-gift my Wii box with clothing and a brick inside it. Thank you sir.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

please don't replacate the poor xbox 360 kid, that's still fucked up as i stated before, it's bad for a kid's mental health

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

I recall that video. That was fucked up indeed.; primarily because the parents and entire family laughed AT the kid and made sure to tape it.

I would have done what I said if I didn't have my 50+ year old uncle for secret santa. He's not much of the Wii type. Also my daughter got an actual Wii today, so that wouldn't work to well on her either.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

Personally, I thought it was really heartwarming to see those kids so happy and excited.  Reminds me of how I acted when I first got my Super NES.  I think Herrman (and GP) are way off here.  When I read the article before actually watching the video, I was thinking it'd be a collection of kids swearing at and strangling each other over who gets to play first or stuff like that.  Carnage, you know?

Seriously, what's wrong with being overjoyed that you got what you wanted most for Christmas?  That's all this video really is.  They're just kids being kids. *shrugs*

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

Kinda like me when I got my SNES at Christmas 1992 (Or was it 1993? I dunno.)). My Grandmother mutered about the amount of money spent for something so small. I got the Super Scope Six game with it and My Aunt (Auntysocial on here)) gave me her copy of SimCity for it. So, yeah, I was probaly like that.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

 I actually thought most of them were cute.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

I would have found them even more cute if it weren't for the stupid ads that kept poping up during the video.  I could only make it through the first 5 kids before I gave up due to those things.  I'm sure the rest of the kids were all amusing.

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

First one is freaking scary

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

must... schedule... vasectomy....

Re: Video Documents Mass Hysteria Over Wii For Christmas

God, I want more kids! I would so get my daughter a Wii...if I didn't already have one! I'd just love to see the look on her face. She loves that thing, and she's only 2!

Nintendo is closing the generation gap.

Forget scheduling... I'm using the home kit.

Papa MidnightIt's not bad so far, but I am honestly not sure what to make of it (or where it's going for that matter)07/28/2014 - 9:44pm
Matthew Wilsonis it any good?07/28/2014 - 9:36pm
Papa Midnight"Love Child" on HBO -- anyone else watching this?07/28/2014 - 9:27pm
MaskedPixelanteNah, I'm fine purple monkey dishwasher.07/28/2014 - 4:05pm
Sleaker@MP - I hope you didn't suffer a loss of your mental faculties attempting that.07/28/2014 - 3:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, so my brief research looking at GameFAQs forums (protip, don't do that if you wish to keep your sanity intact.), the 3DS doesn't have the power to run anything more powerful than the NES/GBC/GG AND run the 3DS system in the background.07/28/2014 - 11:01am
ZenMatthew, the 3DS already has GBA games in the form of the ambassador tittles. And I an just as curious about them not releasing them on there like they did the NES ones. I do like them on the Wii U as well, but seems weird. And where are the N64 games?07/28/2014 - 10:40am
james_fudgeNo. They already cut the price. Unless they release a new version that has a higher price point.07/28/2014 - 10:19am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, It most likely is. The question is whether Nintendo wants to do it.07/28/2014 - 10:12am
Matthew WilsonI am sure the 3ds im more then powerful enough to emulate a GBA game.07/28/2014 - 9:54am
Sleaker@IanC - while the processor is effectively the same or very similar, the issue is how they setup the peripheral hardware. It would probably require creating some kind of emulation for the 3DS to handle interfacing with the audio and input methods for GBA07/28/2014 - 9:30am
Sleaker@EZK - hmmm, that makes sense. I could have sworn I had played GB/GBC games on it too though (emud of course)07/28/2014 - 9:23am
E. Zachary KnightSleaker, the DS has a built in GBA chipset in the system. That is why it played GBA games. The GBA had a seperate chipset for GB and GBColor games. The DS did not have that GB/GBC chipset and that is why the DS could not play GB and GBC games.07/28/2014 - 7:25am
IanCI dont think Nintendo ever gave reason why GBA games a reason why GBA games aren't on the 3DS eshop. The 3DS uses chips that are backwards compatable with the GBA ob GBA processor, after all.07/28/2014 - 6:46am
Sleakerhmmm that's odd I could play GBA games natively in my original DS.07/28/2014 - 1:39am
Matthew Wilsonbasically "we do not want to put these games on a system more then 10 people own" just joking07/27/2014 - 8:13pm
MaskedPixelanteSomething, something, the 3DS can't properly emulate GBA games and it was a massive struggle to get the ambassador games running properly.07/27/2014 - 8:06pm
Andrew EisenIdeally, you'd be able to play such games on either platform but until that time, I think Nintendo's using the exclusivity in an attempt to further drive Wii U sales.07/27/2014 - 7:21pm
Matthew WilsonI am kind of surprised games like battle network are not out on the 3ds.07/27/2014 - 7:01pm
