Was out and about in brum today and I was amazed to see everywhere Wii's sold out! People going made just to get one in time for xmas.

I bought mine a while ago in May and just played Zelda. After that i boxed it up and never took it out again. Im glad I got mine cause now I cant wait to get Mario Galaxy :-D

sold my wii 1 week after i got mine. it was fun when people come over but wanted something i can play alone as well. so ps3 or 360 would be my choice.
#10
lol? i wish i didnt get it!
after 1 month stopped playing it!
#11
Not used ours for months, either. Past experience of Nintendos tells me it'll be in regular use again though- I didn't use my launch ds for about a year... it gets used every day now. Nintendo and their damn slow release schedule

Bought mt wii in decemeber with zelda - red steel and super monkey ball
Completed zelda - red steel was rubbish and so was monkey ball

Sold it may

Waste of money at the time as there were no games to buy

But saying that if the price dropped and a few decent titles came out i maybe would rebuy it but only for when people are round
But i love my 360 so atm i dont want a wii
#21

Wanna hear the worst thing?

Its sitting right next to me.

Oh the temptation.

Two favourite games:

- Resident Evil 4 (played for the first time on the Wii - amazing!)
- Super Mario Galaxy (probably the best game I've ever played)

I can't understand this Wii vs. 360/PS3 malarky. They are completely different consoles aimed at completely different markets. For opening up computer gaming to the masses (instead of you unwashed game geeks), Nintendo have a confirmed hit.

The competition is between the 360 and the PS3. The Wii has already won (or didn't you meatheads see the Wii sales figures recently ;-))

^ I think the vast majority of people realised that a long time ago, hence why a lot of the time there are PS3 vs 360 arguments and there are hardly ever Wii vs PS3/360 arguments, there are normally just a few people expressing how they didn't like the Wii personally and it was a dissapointment for them.

The Wii is a completely different kind of gaming system to the other two, which is why a lot of people have a PS3/360 with a Wii. I have a PS3 and Wii because it allows me to play all the games I want to play from all different genres.

Well, this may be your experience, but I've been in plenty of boards where the Wii is still being compared to the 360/PS3 on a like-for-like basis. 'Wot? No HD graphics? Wot? No 30-multiplayer online gaming?' - that kind of thing.

My experience has been that people are all too keen to sectarianise themselves, and don't like it when one of the 'competition' doesn't hold a fair fight.

I have owned a Wii since January, and its only now that its getting use, my 360 currently is gathering dust. So many good titles just on the Wii to play.

Super Mario Galaxy is simply stunning the best game ever made, Endless Ocean incredibly innovative, Super Paper Mario really good fun. Mario Vs Sonic at the Olympics...a great two player. Metroid Prime Corruption....works seamlessly with the wiiremote a great alternative to playing Halo 3. Lego Star Wars Complete Trilogy, Tomb Raider Anniversary, Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles....the list goes on and on and on right now.

True games players appreciate originality, the Wii is starting to show that, as well as offering titles such as Tomb Raider and Star wars offered on other formats.

What it lacks in graphical finess it makes up for in gameplay and innovation, anyone who plays Super Mario Galaxy or Endless Ocean will find that. For that Nintendo cannot be rivalled.....I will get back no doubt to playing my 360 once I have played the current batch of stellar Nintendo titles but seriously the Wii is winning out for me right now over all my consoles.

im looking forward to mario kart due in january yippie

It's all a bit suspect that the UK is in massive short supply yet again. I'm working in Vienna at the moment and every electronics shop is stacked to the ceiling with them, there's no sign of short supply at all, and it's not as if it isn't popular here because it is. It's funny to see the mad rush to websites when they are advertised as available and then I see dozens of them on my way home from work just sitting there.

im still chuffed i got my Wii. been playing super mario galaxy on it.. bloomin addictive :w00t:
#39
yep super mario galaxy is by far the best game ive played since super mario world

i have a wii, had one for ages, its wicked when you have people over as its fun but the single player scene was quite cold before metroid prime except for a few exception as of zelda and paper mario.

but the multiplayer hasnt had much play in the past month as i got a modded 360 and 4 wireless pads so we have cod4 and halo 4 heaven lol

i still play super mario galaxy though as its awesome

One thing i hate about the Wii is the cheap and rubbish games made for it like Mysims etc. The Wii was good but now its just a cash cow for gaming companies to make quick money.
