Hell yeah! I still have one. The color changing doesn't work anymore though.

Re: The Wii

600th post, Wii Rant.

For all of the Wii haters that are afraid about looking stupid playing the system, or think it is just for kids, you have to try it. I have converted every one of my friends who made fun of me for buying one.

Zelda is pretty cool. I havent played it as much as my other games, but it is supposed to be the deepest Zelda yet, and I have really enjoyed the conrtols so far.

I also have Red Steel. It is a bit tricky to get used to but the multiplayer is pretty cool, and I actually feel like I have a mouse in my hand and am playing a FPS on a computer.

Mostly I have been playing Wii Sports with various friends. The bowling is the best of the games. The other four (Tennis, Boxing, Baseball, and Golf) are fun as well, but they aren't as much fun for everyone. Anyone can bowl. I was able to teach a four year old how to bowl, and my parents who are in their mid 50's enjoyed it too.

The main reason I bought it was for the ability to download all of the classic games. Granted I know there are emulators and they are free, but its hard to play two player on emulators in front of a computer. Also the systems available for download are NES, SNES, N64, Sega, and TurboGrafx-16. Each Monday they are rolling out the new games available for download.

Overall if your an Xbox360 fan, then you already have your mind made up. And you probably would hate the Wii. But for the multiplayer and fun for everyone I would say the Wii is the system of choice.

Re: The Wii

I'm going to get one for my lady... She hates video games but we tried it in the store and she played it for about half an hour, after which I had to make her stop so the kid behind us could give it a shot. Honestly, I have no interest in playing traditional games on the Wii but if they can come up with new concepts to take advantage of the controller, then why not? I think FPS would be an awesome format for the Wii as long as you can aim the damn thing... I'm surprised to hear that Madden is fun on it as I thought it would be annoying to make the throwing motion. By the way, how is that Red Steel game? I remember reading about it and thinking it would be cool to virtually sword fight...

Haha it really isnt a workout, I mean if you are a LAX player simple hand motions are not gonna tire you out.

I mean I agree with Drew, most people think its really childish and think their buds will make fun of them.

I felt the same way, it really isn't like that. Just try it out, outside of Best Buy before you make a judgment.

Re: The Wii

I have the 360, but I don't play it much. The Wii seems like something my wife might actually play as well. We'll have to check it out.

Re: The Wii

People's views on the consoles are always interesting. There are definitely fanboys of each system, and people tend to be very loyal.

I grew up on Nintendo so I'll probably always stick by them, I've owned just about every system they've put out. Right now I have the DS and the gamecube. I know they focus more on kids and their own first party games (Zeldo, Metroid, Mario, etc), but in the end they put out quality fun games and systems and they're always trying new and different things.

I'm also a playstation guy, but I'm not against getting the 360 instead. I'm going to wait and see how the PS3 develops and for the price to drop.

I have always been a PS guy and was not a fan of XBox until recently. At the same time, Nintendo was not very appealing to me, but as Matty said I really respect how they try new and creative things. The Wii is a huge success in my book.

Re: The Wii

So where can one buy a Wii for $250? I keep seeing them advertised online as part of holiday bundle packages for like $500-$600.

Are they expected to drop in price after Christmas?

You can't get them online at Best Buy, but you should be able to walk into the store to get one for $250:

Re: The Wii

I haven't played it yet, but I admit that zelda game seems pretty awesome.

I was a huge fan of the N64 one.

Re: The Wii

Good luck walking into a store right now and finding a Wii. Other than the store demo models, I've still yet to see one on the shelves. We probably won't see them until March.
