Wii tops Toys 'R' Us list

The Wii has become not just the first game console on Toys 'R' Us' holiday "hot toy" list, but also the first console to reach number one. Reuters reports this as extremely significant, since the company insists that any toy on the list be available in plentiful quantities. The PS3, meanwhile, is nowhere to be found, in what appears to be a snub to Sony. Toys 'R' Us spokeswoman Kathleen Waugh explains. "The PlayStation 3 is really geared to a savvy gaming enthusiast," she says. "The Wii system appeals to young kids as well as adults." Other toys on the hot list include Fisher-Price's T.M.X. Elmo and Lego's Mindstorms NXT.
