    well according to some wii commercials they show some guy playing drums with his wiimote.... so if there is a game coming out that you can do that, Id say get a wii and kill 2 birds with one stone.

    you'll get a wiimote and sports game packed with the wii

    your name is wiichangetheworld, if you buy drums you'll have to rename yourself to drumscanchangetheworld... which doesnt have such a good ring to it

    but hey, no doubt a drum game will appear on the wii, the best of both worlds

    Get the drums first dude. Music rules the WORLD! Video games can wait for when you have some extra cash. In the mean time work on your drum work, it's good for the mind.

    Well it depends how old you are. If you are 10-14 get the drums because you still might be able to persue a carrer in the music world. But if you are 15+ get the Wii, cause you have no hope of making it to the music industry and might as well drown your life away with gaming consoles... Just my advice for ya

    :lol: There have been many 15+ year olds that have pursued a career in music and succeeded. Just get the drums and keep practicing until you have enough money to get the Wii. Then split your free time wisely between both but definitely get the drums first.

    Ok, whatever man. :lol: The kid should get the damn Drums no matter what age he is. It is never too early to start a life-long hobby even if he isn't thinking about pursuing a career in music.

    Why? It's an easy choice man. You want to learn how to play drums which will stay with you for the rest of your life? Or you want to waste away playing video games? Drums now, Wii later.

    Oh palease. You guys should stop trying to corrupt this kid. Let me give you an example. When I was 12 I had a choice to make... either one of those moterized scooters that 2 of my good friends were getting or a pair of turntables and a mixer. Well guess what I got, I got the turntables... and guess what I do for a living now. I work as an audio engineer at Fox News Networks. Go with the drums, your at that perfect age where you are going to start making up your mind if it's something you want to pursue or not. Trust me on this one, I was in your shoes.

    I have to say I've got many friends that are musicians, I play myself but guitar mostly, and if you can get a set of drums for what you are paying for the wii you definitely don't want them because it's the set that the monkey bangs symbols over.... a good drumset, is going to cost more than 250 dollars... save yourself the trouble get the wii and save up for some good drums... or bypass the wii and continue saving for drums

    Depends about how interested you are in drums. If you want a drumkit 'cause you think it looks cool and fun, but thats it then I'd say Wii, if you think it looks cool and fun and your passionate about playing/learning etc.. then get drums

    Well as a drummer myself I have to say get a kit first then a wii, but as Wiired said somewhere above "dont just get one cos it looks cool" Drums are not the easiest instrument to learn and do require alot of pratice! Ps if your already a drummer (not a beginner) then still get the 7 piece!!
    What make is the kit?
    Oh and mantaining drums costs money(replacing skins,buying cymbals,sticks,stands etc). I've spent over €800 on my kit and cymbals and cases and will have to spend more roughly every 2 years to replace the skins!
    But the drums are alot of fun and MUSICAL TALENT is one of the best things to have!

    Great to hear this. And to the people who say people over 15 cant learn the drums "get a rock and put it where the sun dont shine". I'm 15 and I can play the drums!
