    Anyone here have a Wii,if so read

    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

    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.

    Just got a Wii for my daughter at CompUSA.

    Used this to track one down...

    Looks like supply is improving.
