Default Finally got a Wii!

After weeks of holding onto Christmas money and not being able to find one anywhere, I finally got my hands on a Nintendo Wii yesterday. Best Buy, Circuit City, and Target were all advertising that they would be getting some systems in yesterday and would hand out vouchers prior to opening. I stayed in my car most of the night (I wasn't about to miss out on one again!) and kept myself awake and entertained with my portable dvd player and my Nintendo DS. There ended up being about 20-25 people when the store opened and I got the first one. Not sure how many systems they got in that day.

I'm really having a blast with it. I've played about 2 hours of Zelda so far and it's really a great game so far. Also played a bit of Wii Sports which is a lot of fun. Bowling has probably been the most fun, and the wife and I played quite a few games of it last night.

Who else here has a Wii?

I've got one and absolutely love it. I haven't been into video games as such in a very long while, but the Wii has got me interested again.

I've been thinking about getting one as well. I just got a xbox 360 for christmas and love that. Been hearing way too many good things about the wii, plus i think there is a lot more games that my kids could play on the wii than 360.

I'm still stuck between the "wii vs ps3 vs x360" debate. not sure what to get.

ps3....new, has bugs, watched x-play, and out of 5 games, were only impressed by one. they said madden '07 was the same as x360.

x360...been around, proven to be good, but belives ps3 has more ability in the long run

wii...just doesn't have the graphics of the other 2, but looks to be fun, at times. i think truely, wii works good as long as u have ps3 or x360. there has to be times u just want to sit back and enjoy instead of jumping around

It's cool that you finally got one. I may get one when I can just walk into a store and it's sitting there on a shelf with its other Wii buddies. Screw camping out for a game system. Besides, my Xbox 360 is enough for right now.

Maybe people should post their Wii codes.

Hey Banke, I watched Clerks 2 this weekend. Thumbs up, and the commentary by Smith about View Askew, Jason's "problems", Jersey Girl, his life etc was INTENSE. Kevin is the shit.

I really loved the movie a lot. In fact, that's what I watched while waiting last night!

I am in the same boat.....plus you have the HDDVD vs BlueRay thing to worry about too..

X360 and PS3 = improved the technology for better graphics, but kept the gameplay basically the same....more $$$

Wii = kept the technology the same as PS2 and changed the gameplay...much more interesting I think...and it's cheaper...and it's not like the graphics suck on a Wii....

Now wait for the Wii 2 which will be the best of both worlds....

It's a 16-digit number located in the settings or virtual mail (forgot which) and if you enter in to the address book of the virtual mail and your Mii is set to mingle, you can get each other's created Miis on your Wii.

I was at wal-mart tonight looking at the Wii, as neat as it is, the wii sports looks like a saturday cartoon. plus i cant see playing call of duty 3, or zelda on it.

plus, playing baseball may be cool on it, if they had a real game, besides that cartoonish one that comes with it

I finally saw what a modern game system looks like. As recently as a few months ago, I was still playing my old NES.

I tried my younger brother's Nintendo wii last week. Impressive. I enjoyed the sports games.
