    wii is pretty fun

    not the typical video game, but its good because it gets you moving instead of sitting on the couch

    You don't have to be jumping around the room flailing your controller to and fro to play the games. That is just the way the advertise it.

    Wrist motions are all that is required for most games, just make sure they are quick and sharp. You could easily sit on the couch and move your arms from the elbows only and be jsut fine.

    That's funny, iv'e had my Xbox 360 for about a year now and the only bad thing that has happened was a bit of lag in Saint's Row when there's about 5 car's in front of me and i shot an RPG, Oh well there's alway's going to be ups and downs for every console, im not even interested in the PS3 as of yet and never have been with the PS2 either.

    With the xbox 360 it seems that the first gen versions where pretty bad off. My brother in-law have had nothing but trouble with his. Has sent it back 3 times to have repaired now. I just don't know why they don't give him a newer model. When I do eventually get my 360, I'll definitely get the extended warranty (and I never buy the extended warranty).

    Its very strange, some people just seem to have the continued issue with their Xbox 360. Me on the other hand had one simple problem and had it easily fixed.

    ADVICE: Buy your Xbox 360 from Best Buy if possible. I had the Product Replacement plan from Best Buy and my 360 began freezing in only 1 game. I took it there they handed me a new 360 with no questions asked. It was great.

    So you have to move the actual controllers to move the person, car etc. ?

    The controller will work differently with different games. In excite truck for example you hold the controller by each end and rotate it as you would with a steering wheel. In Zelda you move with the Analog stick but you swing your sword by swinging the controller etc.

    I think it really is a cool concept and look forward to my Wii purchase.

    I bought zelda with my wii, and then rented madden 07 and tony hawk downhill.

    The tony hawk game took a bit to get used to, and I am still toying with it. Madden on the Wii, IMO, is way better than on the xbox 360. Mainly, because football games are becoming too complicated. Once you get passing and juking down with the wiimote and the nunchuck is actually is simple and great game play. You don't have to memorize to press so many buttons, with the wii is all one button, plus one motion gesture.

    I think I am going to buy madden next paycheck. Tony hawk may end up just being a renter.

    Zelda is amazing!

    i think the ps3 will do better! a lot of my friends will be getting it and a little while after that i think the wii will come on strong. did it sell out after 7 minutes or something like that? and to be honest i dont know about the 360. ive never ventured into the Xbox land! but they will all do well to some extend. its just a fact of life! lol! :)

    I want to get the Wii for my wife. I think she'll like that. She's simple so it's a good match. I am going to get the PS3, but I'm just going to wait until I get my TV so I can pair the two right away.

    i used to be the South West Rep for Microsoft in UK, and i found out alot about the PS3, and its going to be Sonys downfall, yes they will sell alot only becuase of the name they have got, but it will be a big dissapointment because the hype is so high, 360's are good and capable of many things ps3 can do and half the price, but my vote goes to the Wii just because of its design and features, well done NINTENDO

    I'm sure you did not mean that the way it sounded ;)... Women do not like being called simple. I agree though, women and children everywhere will love the Wii :). Some of us older guys will too :p. Also before ya go getting upset, I'm teasing about the simple comment... I'm sure you meant "she likes to play simple (easy) games" and not simple (as in dull witted). The goal with Nintendo this time around was to get everyone playing it. That goes for us older gamers as well.

    With that in mind I do not think simple (as in easy) has anything to do with wanting the Wii. I look forward to because it is an entirely different experience. And there is not other game (IMO) like the Zelda series.

    My neighbor has a 360, and we play it a lot. It is a very nice system, and I think perhaps sometime in 07 I may pick one up if I can get a good deal on it, or maybe find a sale, or if a price drop occurs.

    However, one thing about the Wii, that I want to explain more about when I said its more simple. It is by no means a simple system. Madden is a complex game, and how hard you thrust the wiimote determines if you lob the pass or if you bullet the pass. I hate most newer football games, they have become way over complicated, with too many buttons to push. Like there is a button to guard the football now, well, shouldn't my player already be guarding the football? I mean crap that like doesn't make much sense to me in a video game, its a game. The 360 version of madden sucked IMHO, and was not fun. Too much going on and too many different buttons to memorize. Now, with the Wii, its simply one button and a gesture, or whatever. It is by no means simple, it requires perfect timing to stiff arm or juke someone. However, it just makes more sense once you learn how to play the game. Stiff arming, juking, pump faking, lobbing a pass over the defense, bullet a pass through some defenders, and Larry Johnson rules in that game, I just plow through people with him!

    OTOH, games like Gears of War, are awesome and make it totally worth buying a 360 for. So, I am not dissing the 360 in any way, I am just saying that they will both have their merits.

    I am a big fan of the tiger woods golf games, and I can't wait for a Wii version, it is going to be the best one on the market because of the game play alone.

    lol no offence here but Aerican Football is just a silly sport, im British so we obviously all think this, but why call it football they only use thier feet a minority of times during the sport, and the football games over here im talking about proper football where they use thier feet to play well those games rock especially PRO EVO 6 no complicated silly buttons and moves ETCETC just a case of pass skill log thru ball shoot simple :p

    yeah, well I don't disagree. I like watching euro soccer, or should I say, Football? I watch it on tv when I get a chance. It truly is the global sport, which is why probably most americans hate it, but who knows:confused:
