I have a had a Wii for a year and I'm still not bored with it! The Wii's fun for the family and although it's not meant for being portable I bring it to play at all my friends' and family's house who don't have one. Nintendo did a good job in making a completely new controller system that is versatile and fun. The graphics may not be the best of the new generation consoles, but its nothing too serious as long as its decent. Now the Wii has a lot of games that are advertise fun for the family, but many people will argue that it doesn't have enough "mature" games. Well you don't need one to have fun. I think games like Super Smash Bros. Smash, Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Mariokart are still pretty good. There's also the WiiSports, WiiPlay, WiiFit that are entertaining and a fresh new type of variety to the gaming world. Another reason is that it's reasonable priced compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360. Would you rather spend $250 or 400$ on a PS3? Now overall the wii's pros outweighs its cons and the only reason I think you shouldn't get it is because it's not at any of the stores.
