Finally got my Wii last week. I missed the launch here by a few days. I can't speak the local language so I'm pretty ignorant of the local news. Anyway, I was able to put in my reservation and was 156 on the waiting list. Fortunately, there were enough units in this 2nd batch so I got one.
It's great! I got it mainly for the kids and I'm really happy that even our 3 year old can play. We had another family visit us last night and they (parents and kids) all had fun. I'm looking forward to my wife's birthday party next week when we'll be able to share this new 'toy' with other friends.
This is definitely THE game console for non-gamers. It's simply great fun for everyone!
By the way, I think Nintendo should start paying me for all the free publicity and marketing I'm doing at my home.
