If that's the case, that will be longer than the grace period I had with the original Xbox. I had a week with that thing before I turned it into a DVD player.

I doubt that. I think there's far more possibilities with the technologies built into the Wii.

That's the thing. People seem to focus on specifications alone. The Wii seems to break that concept by going against all the craves.

I have the original xbox as my primary console right now. I love it. I now have 84 games for it, none of which cost me more than probably $5-10. (thank you, gamestop)

That's what I really don't like about nintendo. They always have that with so many possibilities, but they only use them as a marketing gimmick. They aren't used anywhere near their full potential.

Cutting those veggies can be messy. You should clean up with SHAMWOW!

LOL and you can pan the camera like 600 times so you can switch out things to make it look more impressive.

Watch the carpet.

Nothing beats DDR, but damn didn't the Wii ruin it with its version...
Songs were MIDI compatable by the sounds of them, with cheap voices added on top, BUT at least you could turn those extra movements with the hands off in the options...

I do agree that the Wii has some plus's to add to exercise you do already. Its in no way a replacement.
Wii Fit/The EA one, do indeed work however if you are really wanting to add to times where you'd otherwise be sitting around.

As long as exercise is fun, people will do it.

Yeah I know.
It shows how you spill on the carpet, and you can clearly see the Coke seeped out onto the sides and stuff. The Coke is surrounding the carpet.
Then when it is a different view the Coke is gone from around it!
Lol wtf?!??

Personally, I am tired of nintendo releasing something new and evolutionary, and marketing it to adults and teens, then letting it be taken over by kiddie games, and then not properly using the new features.

OK whatever. I'm not here to burn on nintendo or the wii, but this is just my opinion on all their stuff.
well not to mention the new PS3 game with the dragons..and you ride around on them and you use the Six-Axxis to move it up down left right

The Wii is good if you have family members that also have one... Mario Kart is awesome!

I think it depends on the Genre of game that your into.
