I was if anyine here had a Wii and if so what do you think about it.I love mine and am having a ball playing all the new games with the new design wiimote and nunchuk.People have alos been talking about how bad the grahics are,I mean what ae they talking about I think the graphics are great.Are they as good as teh PS3 or the Xbox.NO.But do you have to pay 400 or 600 hundred dollars for the console NO.Games dont cost 60 bucks either.I feel that the Wii is everything they said it would be and more.The only thing I would like to see being updated are the internet activity.I cant wait for the first game that has the abiltiy to play on the net coop style.But besdies that I think its great,how about you guys.

Also if anyone wants to share Wii numbers PM me and we can send emails or exchange numbers over PM's if its aloud,thanks.Looking forward to your replys.

I got one for my teenage son. We are all hooked on the bowling. Of course it's really awesome on a 60" screen. The baseball IMO really stinks. It's lke playing Smurf baseball. But the golf, tennis, and other games seem pretty wild. My son loves the old classic Mario games, so I've been allowing him to buy the Wii points (penny a point) to buy/download/save several of those games.

The internet browser seems to work pretty good too.

Wii Baseball is hilarious, though. I must have played it for 2 hours with my nephew last weekend. Yeah, it kind of sucks playing the computer, but playing it one on one is a complete blast, IMO.

I think all the Wii games are cool and fun.IF you have a big screen HDTV it only helps.In order for it to look great you need to buy the componet cables but there worth it.I got Zelda and COD3 looking great on my 52 inch HDTV.

Wii is awesome I got Zelda, Madden, Monkeyball, and of course Wii Sports.

Zelda is amazing (of course)
Monkeyball is a fun pick up and play puzzle type game,
Madden is just like regular Madden but a little more innovative and actually pretty fun.
Wii Sports is much better than I ever though it would be! Bowling is AMAZING

We need to get another controller so that people can play one on one. I agree, playing versus the computer stinks. You hit a ground ball towards a player, it's caught and automatically registers as an out.

Very un-Reds like :mooner:

What I like about the bowling is that is it so realistic. Once you program in which hand you bowl with it seems the hand controller actually reads your hand/arm movement and gets the ball to break just as it would in reality. I've been experimenting with it alot. And my average in the game is pretty much what it was when I bowled (around 155).

The latest news I read was that the demand was so high it wouldn't be until around the March quarter before they can be seen regularly in stores.

If I see any around here I will be more then happy to PM you if you want.

No problem. I got really lucky on mine. I used craigslist and found one in my locale over in Dublin, Ohio (about 30 minutes away). I ended up paying $350 for it after I told the guy I was waiting to hear from another seller in Columbus to get back with me and he wanted $375. This guy wanted $400. He still made a profit of $100 because he was one of the lucky ones who bought it during the "first round".

I was just simply amazed at what people were paying for these units on Ebay. Simply stupid IMO.

Hey! I finally got my Wii at WalMart last night. They put them out at 12:01 so we made a family trip. :thumbup:

Oh we also picked up Ultimate Alliance for my son. Looks pretty cool.

Keep asking the clerks at your local Walmart/Kmart or whatever when they expect a new shipment. I just happen to go in on Saturday when I was told a shipment was going to be put out at 12:01 that night so I headed back down at 11:30.

My arms are kind of sore today though. That thing is really pretty fun! My son and I were having a blast with that thing. Now I need to find an extra controller (they were all out at the store).

:D :D I am suffering with Wii-denitis in my right arm. OUCH! :D :D

Baseball and Tennis are the major culprits IMO.

For me it was boxing. That whole game is addicting though.

Used Itrakr to locate extra wii remotes (also in short supply).
Now the fun really begins...
