I hail from Lethbridge, alberta, and I had the original Wii since a few months after launch. I have almost all of the Nintendo games, though i'm just now trying Pikmin. I did get an Xbox last year, but I found that none of the games really interested me. So I sold it and upgraded to a Wii U (got to love the little Pikmin data movers)
Still trying to figure it out, though. Its definitely a bit different than the Wii.
