Review: Wii Love The Wii

Nintendo's Wii is not your standard sit-on-the-couch-and-eat-chips-all-day gaming console. After hunting one down online, my best friend and I tested it out with a few rounds of bowling, which was far more realistic and fun than I had imagined. After a few spares (and a strike by yours truly!), we got competitive and realized we were going to have to create an official score board. Overall? Even non-gamers will have fun with the Wii because it forces you to move your whole body and get active. It comes with a tiny console controlled by a small, wireless remote and sensor bar. Make sure you use the wrist strap for the remote because I have already heard some flying remote horror stories!

Wanna see us testing out the Wii? Check out our Wii Love The Wii video here.

The Wii is priced at about $250, but because of its popularity, it's temporarily out of stock. If you are willing to pay up to $600, you may be able to get your hands on one from Craigslist. For more information, check Nintendo's website.

okay, so here it is January, 2008 and I have been looking to purchase a Wii for my two kids (ages 33 and 36) for the holidays. Well those are long gone and Wii's are still not available. I just laugh when I read how much fun everyone is having. So, play an extra game for us! I'll keep looking!

Rayman Raving Rabbids is our current fav. I am totally addicted to the crazy bunnies. We also like the Sports Bowling. Even had our own at home "adult" cosmic bowling complete with black lights, booze and bad cheese nachos ;-)
