    What exactly does this do during a game? Does it pause the game and bring up some kind of universal menu or turn the game off and return to the startup (reset button?).

    I'm very curious about this :)

    It brings up a menu that lets you go back to the main Wii Menu at any point.

    Or configure certain options on the remote, most importantly the volume of the built-in speaker.

    Also, was reading VC manuals and it sounds like you can create standby/resume points at any time during VC play by hitting Home and going back to the main menu. These disappear once you resume the game - BUT, it sounds like they're persistent even if you power down the console! Not sure if this applies to Wii games too, but I recall reading somewhere that you could be playing, press Home to back out & check your message board, then resume play at the same spot.

    It turns the Wii into a small, portable home, kinda like a tent.

    Would have been great for the 24 hours I spent in line. :p

    You can't use the console and all its fancy features till you get it silly. Otherwise there would be no point of the line in the first place. :p

    Good! I really liked the Home 360 thing. I'm hoping the Wii doesn't have the delay the 360 menu has. If there was any way of speeding up them "blades" I jolly well would :eek:

    Yeah, the 360's menu is choppy and delayed. The Wii's pops up instantly, no choppiness or delay. It also has some Wiimote settings available.
