Video Game Console Review: The Nintendo Wii Scream Said It All
I Scream, You Scream, Remember the Wii Scream?
Did you do the Wii scream when you received your Wii? Was the mighty Wii video game console really worthy of a Wii Scream? Is this how you would react to receiving the Wii console when it was brand new and oh so exciting?
It was more than just a bit exciting to receive a Wii video game console and some of the necessary video games and video game accessories for many individuals. But was it enough to cause you to scream? It certainly was for the recipients of the Wii video game consoles on this page!
One reaction became a YouTube video hit and, as of February 12th, 2009, had more than 395,196 people visit, 487 comment and 662 leave star ratings. Yes, you will find J.P. Pellegrino's world-famous Wii Scream video on this page.
My teenage boys received a Wii and some of the best Wii video games this year for Christmas from Santa. At 17 and 15 years of age, their reaction was slightly more mature. They had the contents of the package figured out before they started to unwrap it. There was no scream but the smiles were definitely ear-to-ear and the pleasure plain to see.
What is it about the Wii and the Wii Scream? Why were people around the world so enthralled with this video game console and with these videos? On this page, I have featured only a few of the many, many YouTube videos available on this theme. I hope you enjoy them.
The Story of Canada's Pellegrino Family and Their Wii Experience
Probably no one expected quite this reaction from the recipient of a Nintendo Wii. J.P., Sara and Simon Pellegrino of Grimsby, Ontario, Canada are famous because of J.P.'s Wii Scream. Their video, filmed by Mom and put on YouTube by Simon, has been seen and heard on more than 281,000 computers around the world. Both Fox News and ABC have used the clip and apparently, the story has been carried around the world in newspapers. They have, unexpectedly, become one of the latest in a string of YouTube sensations.
The video features J.P. opening the Wii and J.P.'s reaction is what all the fuss is about. Watch his eyes first and then cover your ears when he lets out his high-pitched scream of delight followed by a dance and a collapse with the Wii held securely in his arms.
Sara says that the video shows J.P. pretty much as he is and that he "gets excited over t-shirts. He's pretty easy to please. Knowing his character, I can tell you it was a genuine response."
Mom, Samantha, says the attention has been mostly positive and she is happy their video has entertained people around the world. I wonder about J.P.'s reaction to the top video games.

"Let's hope they never buy him a sword, or a chemistry set."

The Mighty Wii Video Game Console - Yes, this is the game console that created all the fuss.
When I first created this page, the Nintendo Wii retailed for more than $400. Now, it is available at much less than that from Amazon. When last I checked it was at just $253 for a brand-new, factory-sealed Nintendo Wii video game console.
