Wife and I talked off and on half-heartedly about getting a gaming console. We have a soon to be 12 year old girl and a 3 year old girl. I like PC games, but finally figured it was time to get them something they all could enjoy. The new black edition Wii came out just recently so I'm happy we accidentally waited this long to buy. The thing is beautiful and the game package and controller upgrades are worth the $200.
I also wanted to say that I'm impressed at the range of games already available for the Wii. Lot's of kids games as well as the Call of Duty for the adults. Graphics are kind of old school blocky or straight non-difining lines, but the colors and speed of the system make for beautiful and beleiveable games. Thanks Nintendo, J
