Never again can we be accused of obsessing over the relative size of things. We admit, we're guilty of a chart here
, and we've been known to calculate
cubic volume like a mofo, but a poster at the GameFAQ's forums
has just shown us how it's done.
DocCRP has crafted a pair of meticulous Wii mockups, complete with Wiimote, and proceeded to take pictures of the diminutive box next to ... well, just about everything. NES? Yup. Atari 2600? Sure. Ketchup bottle? Yeah. Dreamcatcher? Errr, yeah, that's here. John Philip Sousa award? Now it's just getting weird.
If you're really curious how the Wii sizes up compared to a 1998 US Mint Proof Set, I've handily hyperlinked the entire forum thread's worth of images after the break.
