The Wii has its fair share of titles that look and sound stunning, but how do you show them off? Today we're talking gaming set-ups, and want to know about every aspect of yours: TVs, sound systems, projectors, speakers, amplifiers, the lot.

Wii Warm Up: Peripheral issues

Wii peripherals have proven a profitable business for Nintendo, and a new member, the WiiSpeak microphone, will join this rapidly growing family later this month.

Wii Warm Up: On commercials

Nintendo history is littered with famous TV commercials (many of which have since become memes in their own right), and there have been plenty of memorable efforts for Wii games so far, including some really funny Fatal Frame IV spots and the love-it-or-hate-it Cowboy Jed trailers for Mario Kart...
