Blur, It's Cold in Here

I haven't played video games at home for years. My Playstation 2 sits in a closet doing nothing. I have a game or two that I never even played. I've really never been a gamer, but I have enjoyed video games since the days of Atari.

I had myself convinced there was no way I'd buy any of the latest gen of consoles. They cost too much. The cames cost too much. I had no time. But, then there's the Wii. It costs less. The whole thing is geared towards fun. Best of all, it gets you up off the couch. Still, I wasn't buying.

More and more, the Wii is trying to creep into my life. I hear about people having a ball playing it. I see video podcasts of people playing and it looks awesome. Still, I wasn't buying.

Then I read that one of my favorite franchises is coming to the Wii. SSX Blur is coming and it's bringing new free-form controls that sound like they'd be fun for controlling snowboarders. Then I see that Junkie XL is doing the soundtrack Junkie XL - Music from SSX Blur and giving it a listen at iTunes, it sounds perfect for the game. Upbeat, fun tracks.

I'm real close to buying one. We'll see.

Good luck trying to find one. They are still having difficulties keeping them on the shelves, demand is still huge.

I consistently see PS3's, and to a lesser extent XBox 360's collecting dust on the shelves at the store, though...
