We went over to a friends house on Saturday. They got that Wii for Christmas. It's freaking awesome!! I love it. They had the Wii Sports and we played Tennis and Golf and Bowling. It's sweet. It's really expensive though so I was thinking about putting it on layaway at Kmart so we can stlil afford to put food on the table! I want that Wii fit. I would use it all the time. Anyone else play the Wii yet? What did you think of it? What are some good games for it??

my hubby had always wanted a wii too... but we just don't have the money to afford it yet... we have to wait until we have spare money and may be we will get the wii sport one... i know that it is so cool and lots of fun... for the time being, he had to be content with playing with his PS 2... take care and have a nice day...

That's what we have now is a PS2 and I know Kmart will buy your used game systems so I was trying to get him to sell it so we could use the money towards the Wii but he likes to play Madden on it and doesn't want to give it up. I'm like get with the times man! But it's not looking like we will be getting one for a while. Maybe next Christmas or something.

OMG! We bought my nieces a Wii this Christmas. I've played it everyday since. Oh God! That game is super amazing. I love training everyday to get a better Wii age. And creating a Mii! It super great. I will say that. We bought all used games because as you said it is expensive. We got Wii Sport of course, it comes with the system. We got Game Party, Rayman Raving Rabbids, and Sonic and the secret Ringz. Pretty cool games. I agree you should put that sucker on layaway. Its worth it.

I went to Kmarts website and they didn't have it on there so I am assuming they don't sell videogame systems?? I will have to check at the store. You would think they sell it though right? If not I will have to save for it I guess!

My older brother has a Wii. It is really nice. You can't just sit and play it, there are some games that will require you to stand up and move around. My mom plays Wii sports too, she and my niece is playing tennis and golf all the time. You should try cooking mama game, it feels like cooking for real :)

Wii is fuuuuuuuuuuun. I play it so much my arms ache in the morning. The games are fun, but you dont actually have to move your body, just your hands, which I inadvertantly do in all video games, regardless of console. I like wii sports, but I heard their are some really fun games, like Mario Kart.

We have a Wii. We've had it for last couple years. It's a very interesting piece of equipment. You get more exercise out of it than you do with the typical game system. We have a few games to play on this system. Super Mario Galaxy, Lego Indiana Jones, Lego Star Wars, Lego Batman, etc. I know we have other games, but I can't seem to name them at this time.

we bought Wii the first time it came out from the market here in our country. were very excited then, but after we just played it for 3 times i guess ,then just put in the box again and choose to play the xbox 360 instead. the picture quality is not as good as xbox and xbox has a lot of game varieties unlike Wii some stuffs are getting us bored i guess almost, sorry for that.. but i hope when you get one you wont regret buying it.

I have heard of it but never played it. My kids want one but didn't get one for Christmas. I am hoping to get them one sometime. It does seem like a lot of fun and I have heard nothing but positive about it.

My partners sister brought my daughter a wii when she was over visiting her back in March. It is one off the best presents she could have got. It is a lot of fun to play and as the controls are so simple even my two and a half year old son can play it. We have had lots of fun as a family playing together. My dad saw my children playing their wii and he went out and brought his own. So it appeals to all ages. I just brought my daughter wii play for Christmas it consists of nine mini games like table tennis, fishing and billiards. It helps you to get to grips with the wii remote which comes with it. I would recommend it.

I want a wii cos I want the wii fit, my eldest son had one when they first came out and he became fed up of it as there were not many games for it then and so he sold it, I wish now he had not!! I may attempt to save up for one but at the minute it is not high on my list of my priorities!!

I haven't played the Wii yet as I'm not close with anyone that actually has one. I do however want one. I think those things are pretty neat and I think the games and the stuff that you can do with the Wii is just awesome. I think a Wii is one of the things I'll want to look at getting within the next year or two.

My cousin just bought me a Wii as my wedding gift. This baby rocks, our family often enjoy it after supper time. We like the Wii sposts the most. I think this kind of way of operation on video game is indeed a revolution, which could make you do some exercise while playing a game. Besides Super Mario serial is very classic, don't miss it, my lotter.

I want a Wii too! We only played it a little bit last year at a friends house but I liked it. I want the wii fit too. I'm hoping that we can get one with our tax refund. Layaway sounds like a good idea too. I wish we had a kmart closer. The closest one is 30 min away.

I just bought a Wii for my son this year for Christmas. It is so much fun and he really loves it. I tried to get one last year but the stores were always out and I waited to the last minute also. This year I shopped early and easily found one. I don't think they were in as much demand this year either. It is nice because they have games everyone can play, young and old. I think the feature where you can go online and play with others is pretty cool. I only bought him one game in addition to the Wii sports that came with the unit and his aunt an uncles bought him some games also so he has some options of games to play. I hope you are able to get one if you want.

I got a Wii for christmas from my husband and I really love it. I just ordered the Wii fit off of Ebay and can't wait for it to come. I really like the sports games. Tennis and bowling is my favorite so far. I this is the best game system ever!!! You will have sooo much fun with this but take it slow. When I first got it I played it like all day and my arms and neck were sooo sore. You use alot of muscles and you will pay for it later. LOL!!!! I hope you get one soon because you will have a great time with your family.

These are generally regarded as some of the best games: Metroid Prime 3, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy, (I need to get around to playing this game.) The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, (I also need to get around to playing this game.) Super Paper Mario (Played it, beat it, really enjoyed it. It gets mixed reviews and is different from the first two Paper Marios, but I still like it.)and Mario Kart Wii.
