I really hope that the high praise everyone is heaping on this one is worth it. It's cemented the Wii in my mind as my next console.

I just wish I could find the stupid thing in stock SOMEWHERE...

Where the heck did you find one? I can't find one anywhere less than 480$...

Woke up early to catch the start of Amazon.com black Friday sales and there it was. Got that and some other great deals.

I say just bookmark the page and click on it ever so often.

Got one at Game Crazy on a whim last week... I think I was lucky though... they only had 6 in stock at noon after getting 10 in that morning.

I'm thinking about playing this game with one of my female friends, cause we've talked about playing some wii together for some time now.. Is it a good multiplayer game? I mean some games are just not made for one person to play and one person to watch taking their turns, but are there challanges and puzzles where you can sort of work it out together together? Is it fit for hotseat play?

I'll buy it anyway, sounds like people are having a blast and a Mario game rarely disappoints

It's a shame how bad 480P looks on digital / fixed pixel displays .. I recently bought a 42" 1080P Panasonic plasma and while 1080P looks fantastic on it I cannot believe how bad Mario Galaxy looks on it vs. my 34" Sony XBR960 CRT HDTV, (Using component cables) I switched back and forth a few times and even my Bro made the comment on how it looks more like an N64 game on the Plasma lol, It Makes me wonder how many people have actually seen Galaxy the way it was meant to be seen.

I have to say, Zelda isn't exaturating on his comments at all. This really is a fantastic game. If you have a Wii, this is a MUST BUY. Best game for the Wii by far.

Good to know and I actually figured it would look bad on my big LCD TV and I don't have a CRT anymore so I bought the Wii its on 19" LCD so it wont look as bad because of the smaller screen.

The Wii looks just fine on an LCD TV. Not as good as HD content of course, but at the same time I'm not saying "OMG what suckky graphics."

There again I was never an e133t pcgAMER so maybe I'm less demanding.

Yeah, I played this today at GameStop, and it is great. For 15 minutes I had more fun than I've had with any PC game in the last year. Controls were great w/ the numchuk/Wiimote.
