    Default Got a Wii!

    Yesterday my wife & I bought a Nintendo Wii. I haven't hooked it up yet; I will do that tonight.
    We are not the gaming types, but we thought this would be something we could enjoy doing together.

    Anybody here have one?

    Awesome!!! You don't need to be the gaming types to want a Wii!! I don't have one, but would love to get hold of it!

    Do make sure you have Wii Play or Wii Sports, whatever it is called, the 6 - 7 sports games in One Game for Wii.

    Also, you could give Wii Fit a try

    James:

    We have one and really enjoy it. My wife beats me in bowling all the time. We bought my parents on for Christmas and they love it as well, and they are both over 80 years old. Definitely not gamers!!

    We actually got a bundled deal: Wii (with Sports), extra Nunchuk, Wii Play (with free remote). We felt we got a good deal. The store had only two and another lady was buying one, so we had to decide fast.
    As for Wii Fit, you can't find one in stores here at the moment. There are quite a few on eBay, but we can wait until production catches up.

    "Nunchuck" I've always loved that word, its just fun to say! I too am in the category of wishing I had a Wii. I've heard they are great, and read the Wii has become a big hit in nursing homes giving elderly a chance to play sports they haven't been able to in years. Another growing market for they Wii has also been in physical therapy. Glad you and the Mrs. are enjoying!

    We finally got our hands on a WII Fit the other day! The local Wal-Mart had 20 of them, and they were available Friday morning at 8:00 when they opened. My wife was there at 8:05 and bought #16!
    The technology is amazing, to say the least. I never would have thought a 'video game' would make me more active!
