    Can I ask why the Hell he would have payed $1000 and why someone who bought one now would have to pay $800? The console only costs $500 US or $550 CND so how does that reach $800?
    Yes paintballer, we all know that these games don't appeal to you. We have heard it a million times. But if you wanted to give a good fair answer, then you could list some games coming out for the Wii at least, see if he would like them, not just yourself. And sadly the Wii isn't all mini-games, and just because it doesn't appeal to you doesn't mean that the Wii doesn't appeal to "Hardcore Gamers".

    Personally right now the Wii is a good buy, mainly because there are good games coming out :

    Metroid Prime 3
    Super Mario Galaxy
    Super Smah Bros Brawl.
    Quite a few sports games like NFL 08.
    And even Guitar Hero 3.

    A good game to start off with is Zelda Twilight Princess, and depending on when you get a Wii any of the games I listed would be good to start off with as well.

    Also Squall said it best.

    The Wii has been nice to have for me. It is a good break from the more "hardcore" games... My wife will actually play Wii Sports and Golf games with me. Which is nice. But there are some very good games such as RE4 which are a must play.
    Over all I feel that the Wii is a nice addition and most all will have fun playing it.

    I said if he likes casual/non-gamer games, then get a Wii. I didn't say that I don't like those games so he shouldn't get them, I just mentioned that I wouldn't get it because they don't interest me.

    Yes, I can acknowledge that the Wii mainly has casual/non-gamer games, so that makes me hate the Wii.

    Buy it. Just for the record, it is a lot more fun if you have an online wireless connection, but its not exactly needed.

    Games that you must get:

    Twilight Princess(a big fat DUH on that one)
    Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition
    Warioware Smooth Moves(Short, but sweet)
    Boogie(when it comes out)
    Wii Play(not that great but hey, free remote!)
    Current systems: Wii, PSP, DS(sux), N64, and PS2.
    PM me if you want to play Socom Fireteam Bravo 2 online! Need wii friend codes!

    I'd say wait.

    The wii has potential to be good.


    But as of now, there aren't enough good games out to justify a buy.

    But the good games will come in. The big one on the spotlight, is Brawl. Set for Dec 3rd.


    But if you're set for a console with a new swing on things, go for a DS.
    It has a plethera of good games.

    I've spent over 10 hours on a DBZ fighting game alone.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    The good news is: you are in a win-win situation. You can buy the Wii and try it out...get some good games like Zelda and Trauma Center...then play it for a few weeks. Have some friends over to play before you make any decisions,though...that's where the Wii shines! Then, if you don't like it...just sell it. We are over 6 months after launch and STILL Wii's are hard to find in the stores! There are plenty of parents clamoring online to get one for their kids...especially with Christmas creeping up on us.

    Not to mention the virtual console...where for just a few bucks you can download and play a lot of the old NES, SNES, N64, turbographics, and sega games...to me, that's almost worth getting a Wii for right there!

    So, if you're a Nintendo fan at all...there's really no question!


    I can't imagine that you will want to sell it...but you never know!

    Worth Buying

    Well (Some people, alot of them) with the whole fanboy comments ect. Are blind for whatever reason. Everyone has differnt opinions. Me personaly I dont care about brand name. I buy something because its fun, Not because of who makes it. Every console has good games.

    The Wii has some games that are unique to it because of the controls and the mario series ect. It also have the Virtual console games, Genesis, TG16, NES, Snes N64 it also is 100% compatible with gamecube games.
    They are also adding Neo Geo Games (From what everyone is saying)
    And there is talk about Commodore 64 games comming out as well.

    For these reasons its like getting many consoles in 1.

    To me The Wii is very worth the money it has some very fun games (pick out games based on what YOU like) The Wii does have a game type for most people. At anyrate its worth the 249 dollars and it comes with Wii sports for that price. Unlike other systems where you get nothing for your money and have to buy extra.

    Another neat thing about the Wii is you can use the Wiimotes to store up to 10 of the Miis (the little people you create) Even if your friends have enough controllers you can bring your Wiimote to their house and copy their Mii into your control get home and transfer it to your system. Thats another way of trading. Its just a neat fun little system. Im 36 years old and its fun for me. Everyone in our house plays it and likes something differnt about it so it does appeal to a broad range of people my dad is 60 and he hasnt seen it yet only the commercials and hes bugging me about bringing it to his house when I visit, and we're talking about a guy whos only played pinball games and doesnt own a computer, cant even set the clock on a vcr. LOL

    I Have Mario party 8, Rayman, The Bigs, Mario Strikers, Zelda, Excite truck, Resident Evil, Super Paper Mario and rented Transformers.

    I spend alot of time surfing around on it, I HATE typing with the wiimote but im sure they will add keyboard support for the internet browser.

    If you have anyone you know with Wii go try it 1st, its up to you if you want to risk buying it without trying it 1st.

    I had a 360 I traded it in for the Wii, The 360 Had some nice games and I was looking forward to HL2 on it, and Halo 3. But My 360 was plagued with problems and I was sick of that. When I turn on a console I want to play I dont want to worry about bugs or heat or the ring of death.
    When I sent my 360 in for repair because I couldnt even watch a dvd on it without it locking up. Microsoft told me if they replace my console everything I paid for on the market place was lost I couldnt get it back and they wouldnt refund me so i could download it again. I sucked it up and accepted that. Then when they sent it back after 3 weeks of being repaired only to find out it does the exact same thing it did before I sent it in. I got mad. Then I find out MS extended the warranty to 3 years. Not because its a great system but because alot of people have problems and its cheaper to give everyone a warranty then to do a recall. That way you only need to fix the people who complain. Even if the 360 worked like its supposed to. And it does for some people. I am still happier with my Wii than I am with my 360. The only game on the 360 that sucked me in was Gears of War.
    Ive been sucked into many games on the Wii and lose track of time playing it very often. The one downside in my opinion is the Wiimotes eat batteries if your hard core playing on it the batteries will need to be replaced every few days. But you can just get a rechargeable Wiimote kit from someone like nyko or something to fix that. For the money its the best thing out there in my personal opinion.

    Nothing beats everything hands down, but for the money its the winner. And games are $10+ cheaper than for the other consoles. Everyone is saying the graphics are bad on Wii. But Resident evil 4 on wii looks great to me, Not everyone has a 1080p HD huge screen tv wish I did The Wii cant even output that resolution anyway. Either way Im happy and would buy it over and over again if I had to I love it. Also Not sure of your age or not but if you happen to pay rent or utilities. The other consoles draw near 300 or more watts of power and the wii is 16-20 watts of power while playing. So it is also cheaper to own than the other systems. Someone on here posted a Review on the power consumption. Also there is a car adapter I saw for the Wii Ill probaly get that and take my wii around with me sometimes when Im gonna be away from home for awhile.

    Hope my comments helped. I say Buy whatever you want if its fun and you enjoy it thats what matters. Bye for now

    Well if you thought the Wii remote was the gayest thing ever then you shouldn't get it. I know you said you are second guessing yourself now, but that's just saying you are like a leaf, you just go where the wind takes you. Have a spine for once and don't judge something based on your friends opinion. I am not a fanboy, I just don't judge things base on what everyone else think. In fact, I didn't look down on any console when they first came out, instead I tested them all out at kiosks and decided I prefered the Wii because of the controller.
