Julianne and I got VIP access to the Wii late on Thursday. I don't know what kind of back-room deals went down to get us on that list, and I don't want to know. The Nintendo booth is the hottest real estate at the show, and - as Joe mentioned - the wait to get hands-on time with the Wii is typically over an hour. Not worth our time, in other words. So when word came down that we'd been granted access to The Short Line, I literally jumped at the chance.
