Hey all! This is my first post here and its unlike the other threads posted before moi. I have recently run into a predicament or dilemma and I would like you guy's opinion / solutions to dealing with it. Okay here goes. I'm getting the Wii on 7/12/06 and have told my folks about it as well as the fact that I'm buying it with my own money. Then they suggested that they offer an alternative - they buy the Wii for me instead AND give it to me as a Xmas present. So I have two choices - spend the money and get the Wii on launch (and pay $500 for it), or wait till xmas to get the Wii and don't have to pay for it! What do you think? I also would like to hear why you think one option is better than the other.
