    Anybody got one? Was playing boxing, tennis and ten pin bowling at the weekend at a party. To be honest I was VERY impressed with how accurate the wireless remotes are, the console really is fantastic and great fun (especially after a few).

    I was sceptical as being a ex-Xbox360 owner thought the Wii was a joke really just for kids, how wrong I was, great fun for the family and friends so will be looking to get one really soon.

    Yeah, we "bought one for the kids" :icon_biggrin:

    I love it.....especially bowling! But my arms always kill the day after.

    Just bought the wii fit and rayman raving rabbids tv party. All good fun!

    I was given one the Chrimbo before last. To be honest, it's a bit like the Mighty Boosh: Awesome the first time round, great when you have a few friends over who haven't experienced it before but gets old quickly. Definatley a social console. It doesn't help that it's taken 2 years for developers to start taking the console seriously, check out this years release list though; Madworld, The Conduit, House of the Dead Overkill all look great.

    Nintendo are bringing out the Motion Plus adapter for the controller this year, it gives true 1:1 motion control, something that's not possible at the moment. I expect we'll see some really innovative and immersive games once that's released.

    The Virtual Console is great. If I didn't have a thing for the boxart on older games (have a nice collection of '90's consoles going on) I'd have bought one myself just to play Ocarina of Time and Gunstar Heroes again.

    I'm a PC gamer but my son has a Wii (he's 5).

    I nearly had a heart attack when playing boxing with him. Its a great laugh when there are folk round the house for a party.

    I got addicted to playing De Blob for a while.

    I'd suggest Amazon at the moment, as Woolworths had the best price of £129.99, but obviously are out of business now.

    That was a good price, missed out there, they're around £170 (ish) most places now.

    Wow, they've been that price for 2 years.

    I got mine from Sainsburys and managed to reduce 2p off by getting a game with it too. Don't ask me how that makes sense, but it's true!
     
  12. If your gonna get one... and your a bit 'boss hog' - then go for Wii Fit - it's awesome...training, fitness, and you can track your weight gain/loss...

    brilliant
