    The Wii and females...

    When I first heard about the wii I said it was going to be a flop. I thought it was a far fetched concept for a console and I figured that it would never take off. The more I read about it and when I finally played one I realized how fun it really is. This system has the ability to be great and maybe even be more dominant than the PS3 but I still think the 360 will remain in the lead. The things this system is capable of is amazing. I don't need to list them because I am sure you all know what this system is capable of, but the thing that really blew my mind about this system is its appeal to females. It doesn't just appeal to female gamers but also to females who don't like video games. This is the system I have been waiting for because it is a bridge for my girlfriends into the world of video games and is a way we can share something I enjoy. Recently on some of my dates, when we see a Wii commercial on TV, my date have raved about how much they would love to play it because "it looks so fun". Sadly I was still unsure about the Wii on it's launch so I did not get one and I have been kicking my self for not buying one ever since. I Was just shocked at this because I have never seen this kind of reaction from girls (At least the kind of girls I date ie non gamers) when it comes to video games. So I will be picking one up as soon as I can find one in a store, I refuse to pay more that than sticker for anything let alone a video game system so sadly it may be a while but I can wait. I just thought I would post this and see if any of you have noticed this and if you haven't it is something to think about.

    My girlfriend loves it, I have an XBox 360 but it didn't really appeal to her because she said it was to hard that its a "guys video game system". But when she played my Wii she loved it, and we've played Wii bowling for at least 20 hours since shes seen it.

    I think women like the Wii more because of the controller and how petite the console actually is according to my girlfriend the console is "cute".

    Well... I'm not complaining about it.

    Yeah my girl, who never played games before, has been playing a lot of Mario games. It's awsome to get to play with her.

    My wife hates gaming, but loves the Wii. I'm pretty sure she's going to get Master Surgeon in every chapter of Trauma Center or die trying.

    I think the fact that they actually have to move and interact with the games is what interests them the most. Also have you guys made Mii's for your girlfriends or let them make their own? I thought this would get them into the game more. My ex liked to make her self in Tiger Woods but she didn't like to play so I figure allowing them to make a Mii would also attract them to the system.
