hello there! I am glad to be a part fo the forums, and I am very glad to own a Wii! I actually received my Wii today as a thanksgiving/early Christmas gift from my wife. I have owned different systems in the past--NES, SNES, N64, PS1, PS2, Xbox 360, etc. What is "different" about my situation is that I am a blind gamer--and I mean it, I am partially blind. I have no sight in my left eye, and a very small amount of sight in my right eye...and I LOVE gaming. I have not had a game console in over three years, so this is exciting for me! I must say that my wife and I have already bonded in playing bowling in the Wii Sports Resort game. We spent the past few hours just playing bowling. Can you believe I got a score of 206 in one round? anyhow, I am looking forward to getting to know you all, and, through process fo time, getting to know my Wii system. How exciting! take care, everyone, and Happy Belated Thanksgiving!
