I Ebayed and picked one up locally yesterday, 80 dollar mark up, not bad imo. The things we do for our kids. I don't want to hear any lip when it's their turn to change my diapers!

Now, if I can only find another joy stick!

They'll just take your hearing aid batteries out, so you won't hear the lip.

I saw a few at a Gamestop in Garden Ridge this week.

Yipee! Thank you God. Made it through another Christmas. First stress-free Christmas in a long time. Kids got there Nintendo Wii (through Ebay and everything works). Everything turned out great. Dinner was good. Kids are happy, me and wifey are happy. And I paid cash for everything with some left over. Have a Happy & Prosperous New Year Everyone.

Now that I got my Wii, I mean my kids got their Wii, I think it's amazing the amount of exercise i'm getting :P I mean, during Xmas, I went bowling, boxing, played some tennis. What will Nintendo think of next?

Wii fit...

you're gonna die

introduced my son's girlfriends mom and sister to the Wii last night and needless to say they're out shopping for one now.. That's my favorite part of the whole system; introducing new people to it and seeing how quick they catch on. Especially the controls. You explain them and they ask "that's it?" and suddenly any dislike of video games they ever had is completely erased..

Yes, I heard about Wii fit, too. They are really trying to market it towards women, at least that was the plan when I read about it a few months back. Is it out yet?

The Wii is a blast. But you need to stretch a bit before you jump right in.

supposed to be out early next year and I'd be willing to lay some money down on it being huge.. They claimed it was delayed, but the beginning of the year is a brilliant time to release something that'll get you a workout while you're playing the game system that nobody can find.. to think most people had left Nintendo for dead in late 2006..

After using our new Wii for the first time this weekend, I promised my 68 year old mom I would buy her one next month (getting on a waiting list, hope it comes through).

It's a lot of fun, but I still prefer my X-box for the more immersive games. I love Assassin's Creed, shanking real political figures in a historically accurate and stunningly represented version of 12th century Jerusalem just blow's my mind away. I don't think my mom would see the value of this, and my wife says it just makes her dizzy.

However, Wii tennis is effing hard!!!
