Update......

So last night after what seemed like hours of waiting I got impatient enough to search out a Wii. Trudging through traffic on Western Ave I went to 3 different Targets and 1 Best Buy without any luck. The out of the corner of my eye I spyed a gaining store in the parking lot of the Target on Addison. Low and behold they had one and I made my purchase!

My review is as follows...

I played the sports games that it came with and after I had overcome the initial learning curve I can say it was pretty cool. Down side to it is that it may become less cool as time goes on but for now its great. The boxing is fun and so is the baseball. Golf is a little picky with your follow through. To a small extent the bowling suffers from this same problem but it is easier to overcome.

In my purchase I also bought the new Zelda game. This is the complete opposite from the sports games as I promptly sat down and turned into a giant sloth while playing. Nonetheless it was a good buy.

If you need more convincing if this was a good purchase versus buying a PS3 or an Xbox look at this....

My brother just got a Wii, he was going to save it and give it to his family for xmas but they opened it up the night he bought it. Seems everyone loves that thing.
