OK, so I won all three of my fantasty football leagues (a total fluke and will never happen again), so I've got about $700 coming my way. I have 3 kids at home (12, 8, and 6) and they love playing the Wii at friends' houses. So I'm thinking of getting one because I hear they're a lot of fun for everyone in the family. I've been anti-video game as I don't want my kids wanting to do nothing but play. We also limit their TV to 30 minutes a day, with a little more on the weekends, but not much. It's worked wonders as my kids all love to read and read more than any other kid their age that we know.
But I keep hearing of families that enjoy the Wii together, so I think I might relent and pick one up.
I've never played on a Wii. Heck, I've never even seen one. If anyone here can educate me on the Wii - what I should buy, what I shouldn't buy, the best way to get a good deal, etc... - that would be greatly appreciated by me. Thanks.
