    Iv'e have a very quick look to see if this topic has been started, but I DON'T want to read reviews from companies, I was people's own opinions!

    Because fairly shortly I'll be getting the Wii, I would like to know what the ups and downs of the console that people have experienced whilst playing.

    Basketball on Wii... I've been thinking about that... XD

    Well, you would probably hold the Wiimote straight out and shift it up and down to dribble. Blocking would probably be sticking both controllers up in the air. To shoot, you would hold down Z and B and thrust the controllers into the air. Stealing the ball would be shake the nunchuck to swipe with your left hand and your Wiimote to swipe with your right (depending where the player who your stealing from is positioned from you). Dunking would be holding down B then holding both controllers straight out, shifting them up above your head and then slamming them down to their starting position. Man... I can't wait for a NBA Live or NBA Street for Wii. *drools*

    Ok, now back on topic:

    Pros:
    -Innovative Controller
    -Wii Sports is TOO FUB
    -Nice titles like Zelda and Red Steel, and good titles coming like Mario

    Cons:Graphics are so-so and no hi-def support (doesn't affect me though)

    Buy rechargable AA batteries and charger...

    My digital camera takes 4 AAs and I bought 8 rechargable batteries and a charger for it ages ago... They are extremely handy and extremely worth it!

    Over the course of a year your gonna pay way more than £20 in batteries else, considering my non-rechargables that came with the Wiimote ran out in 2 days...

    in terms of graphics its a marginal upgrade to the 5 year old gamecube which launched for $200, the controller is only worth $60 so this system costs about twice what its worth. i do not like the wii controls in zelda and would prefer to play with a regular controller.. i will be selling mine as soon as i finish zelda, i'll wait and see what mario/metroid are like.

    Seriously, do yourselves a favor and get some NiMH rechargable batteries. In the long run, it will save you a lot of money.

    re

    Couldnt have said it better myself. The controllers are overpriced, and the games are terrible. I feel that the wii will follow in the same footsteps as the gamecube and sell mostly kids games with a few games targeted towards adults.

    don't forget that no company ever sends good highquality batteries with any type of remote. i've had some basic energizers in my remotes for 2 weeks now and they have only lost 1 bar each.
    But getting some good High quality rechargables is a good Idea. i've got some junkie rechargables that will power my wiimotes for about 10 mins fresh from the charger. :( definatly stay away from Pure Energy brand.
