$360?

I'd rather get an Xbox 360, the Wii is just a big gimmick to me. My friends love it, but I don't get it. The graphics suck, the controls are weak at best, and the game list is less than stellar...

Just my two cents

Glad you like it, though

the technology is awesome i think. It will just take a bit of time for developers to come out with more games that use it better. and yes, i love the bowling too!

wish i had one, guess i'll just have to mooch from my friends!

A friend had one and liked it, but got rid of it. I guess he wasn't impressed after all. I'm a big gamer, but have yet to even try one. I'd like to see how they are before I decide if I want one.

The controls seem like that with time, and coding, could be really good. But, then, obviously there'* going to be the companies that just rush a game out to the stores before it works like it should.

I have had a Wii for a while now.
Yup, it is gimmicky.
But, it is fun as [email protected] am keeping my PS2 for certain games, but for family fun or with company, you can't beat the Wii.

I played the Wii for the first time at Brians house and I LOVED it!! I agree that the game selection is kind of limited, but it is a very fun game to play!!
