    Wii?

    So I have a Xbox 360 to play my Madden, NBA, GTA and games like that...

    But do any of you guys have a Wii?

    I was just wondering if you think it is worth the money to get one...

    I played Wii Sports for the first time today and have a blast... But i was wondering how the other games play? like Mario Cart or Mario or some of those games that you can ONLY get for the Wii?

    i love my wii.
    kind of went the other way than you with getting a wii first then i got my PS3 for GTA IV.
    I own Kart, Super Smash Bros Brawl, Mario and Sonic, and Mario Galaxy.
    All those games are a blast to play.
    Wii fit is going to be awesome.
    Totally get one.
    Its a console that you can get non gamers like your wife/girlfriend or whatever to play and be kind of a relationship builder.

    we love our wii, but we are not really a big gaming family.

    it is interactive, fun, and a hit at parties and get togethers.

    for us, it is perfect

    I never got into gaming once the kids out grew their Nintendo NES.

    Call it a Mii thing.

    I have a wii and it's ok, I wish you could use the regular controler for games instead of the numchuck and controller.

    Re: Wii?

    I have a Wii and the only thing I ever play is Wii sports, 97% of the time we just play bowling.
    I also never play it unless I have people over because as stated it's a crowd pleaser.
    The other games I've tried briefly (snowboarding, football) I gave up on trying to adapt to the controls, I'd rather play on the 360.

    That being said it's worth it to me to just have it as a bowling game when the neighbors are over, everyone has a blast.
