The Nintendo Wii - Sold out throughout North America! Why? Is it because it is the smallest? No. The cheapest? Perhaps... The funnest? DING DING DING - We have a winner!
The Nintendo Wii offers a revolutionary concept when copared to it's other 3rd generation video game consoles the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 (and Elite). Why? All these other consoles develop our teenagers into modern day couch potatoes. With the Nintendo Wii, playing a bit of tennis is no longer inserting Top Spin into a disk cartridge, it is also getting off the couch and playing the game!
This is a great console to bring some more activity into your life while still playing those video games that you love so much AND having fun at the same time. Now don't be expecting to lose 20 pounds in a week or quit going to the gym, this is not a replacement. It does, however, beat twiddling your thumbs. Hell, the most stretching you are going to get out of a PS3 is the massive body turns you do while playing Grand Turismo 4.
While playing the Wii with my family, I found it much more fun than any other console. There was a lot more laughter with the Wii than there was "What does this button do, " with my Xbox.
All in all, if you are going to purchase a new gaming console, you can't go wrong with the Nintendo Wii!
