5.0 out of 5 stars Family fun and living room friendly, 4 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Nintendo Wii Console (Black) with Wii Sports + Wii Sports Resort and Motion Plus Controller (Wii) (Video Game)
I had been thinking about getting the Wii for some time but was concerned it would spoil my high tech living room. The black version however looks fantastic and, without the stand in use, lays discretely on my TV unit. It's surprisingly small and, though I am loathed to admit it, looks cool. It also plays great too. I have a PS3 and for visually engaging games that can't be beaten (unless you're an X-Box convert). The Wii however provides an all-together different experience. I have targeted the sports and activity games. Everyone wants to play the Wii from my grand daughter to my wife (not the most dedicated gamer). I am avoiding buying any "serious" titles for the Wii, like Assassin's Creed II, Avatar and F1 2009, say. The Wii was built for Mario Kart, Sports Resort and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. It's a lot cheaper than installing a bowling ally, tennis court or boxing ring I can assure you. I recommend getting a composite video lead for the Wii if your TV supports it to optimise the relatively simple visuals. In summary, when we want to have fun or want to involve everyone in the action it's the Wii we choose.

Glad your enojoying the Wii. Nintendo of Europe have just started a new scheme Ambassador scheme today. Anyone who has connected their Wii to the Internet within the last 30 days is elegible for 500 free Wii points (which can let you download either some Wiiware or a VC game) You need to peform a system update. You should be prompted to do this today by your Wii. If you want to take part we can both enter each others FC and earn 500 pts each. Here is mine

I think you're missing out if you don't buy serious games like Zelda and Mario Galaxy, because that's what Nintendo does best!
