I personally don't like it. It seems just...weird. I may get it later on, but Im in no rush. So, my answer is no, I will not be getting it for Christmas.

Maybe... I'm not that exited about it, so I might wait until my birthday next year, in June...

I have to say it looked awsome the first time i saw it so i pre-ordered it the first chance i had to do it. Despite getting all excited over the Wii, a couple of weeks back and after reading many reviews and previews of its games, i just felt that it was really weird and doubted the fact that if it was going to run smoothly with its wirless motion control. Also i saw that graphics wise it wasnt t good wither so im not going to get it for christmas.

But im sure ill get it eventually seeming nintendo is the heart of pokemon games!

BLASPHEMY! The control scheme works perfectly, and the graphics are EXACTLY like a PS3 on a non-HDTV screen.

I've already got one. How could you wait?!!

Wait. So you haven't actually played it? Then who are you to judge on the controls.

I've just been playing for the past 5 hours or so (o.o), and I believe that the controls are perfect.

So don't go basing your judgement off the critique of others who probably couldn't be bothered to stand up to bowl ... and I'm being serious.

As Ichapokemr said, the graphics are the same as a PS3 without HDTV. While that still may not convince you, remember that the console has just been launch, so the height of it's full capabilities hasn't been reached yet. And besides, the Wii is about game play - not graphics.

Once you start playing WiiSports, you'll never wanna stop, despite it's simple graphics and simple game play.

Get.One.Now.

And it is awesome.

I'd play more, but it's 1AM, I have school tomorrow and my eyes need a break XD

I played it a a show thingie and the controls were really good, except for bowling. No one could get that right.

Getting the Wii tonight at 12 :D

Being a Wii owner I can say for sure that the controls for the Wii is really great and right on on many games. Don't listen to them reviews that say "The controls are bad, the system is bad" and so on. And if you're getting your reviews from GameSpot then forget them reviews. GS hates the Wii.


I already got my Wii (AND I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!). So I will say good luck to all of you wanting one for Christmas. It will likely be hard finding one if you don't already got it.

I've been looking for a Wii every payday since it launched, but to no avail. I've resolved to wait until after the new year to get one.

Although my dad has subtly hinted at me that he would buy one for me...

Technically, yes, I'm getting one for Christmas. Chances are I won't actually own it until the new year, though, since they're impossible to find. My parents were going to get my brother and I one as an early Christmas gift this year, but we've yet to obtain one despite looking everywhere since launch. :\

I didn't know until yesterday, but yes I'm getting one. My dad actually bought me one off of ebay, and I'm getting Twightlight Princess and Red Steel with it. So... Yay? XD

My sister has bought a Wii cuz she pre-ordered it. She's played on it and her bf is so obssessed playing Zelda on it.

I heard the straps on the Wii easily break off if you throw it around too hard, so you gotta be careful with it. I haven't played the Wii yet.

I'm in no rush to contend with the newly-released Wii, when I'm still working on the DS, GBA, and PS2 collection.

I think I'll wait until this next Summer Break. By then, I'll have more money and more games will be released.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Everyone made TOO Much hype about it, thus making everyone think that it would be: THE BEST GAME EVER CREATED!11!!1!sixteyfour!

Well, I hope to get one, but I'm not expecting it. I know they're hard to find, so I bet I'll get an I O U, witch is fine by me ^^

I already have a Wii, so no. I got a preorder at EB Games in October so I got to go and get mine on the launch day at midnight.

Actually, most of that crap is a hoax.

Anyway, I already have one with Twilight Princess and Excite Truck. I think I might get Red Steel for Christmas.

And for all you who are worried about the control scheme, it is excellent. Wii Sports is also an excellent pack-in game. (I got pro in bowling the first day I had the Wii. Sparkly ball!)

Yeah, I wish... My parents are WAY too cheap to get me the Wii. My mom said "later" and "later" means "NEVR!!!!!!11111111" xD

Well, I'll get it eventually. I so want the new Paper Mario that'll be out! <3

Thats Super Paper Mario. Originally a GC game, wether its been transfered to the Wii i'm not sure

I contacted Nintendo and for sure it's for GC and Wii (Super Paper Mario) it's just the release dates that I couldn't get.

Does anyone know where I could order or back-order a Wii from online? I don't wanna use E-Bay. Also if ur in Ontario, the Golden Mile Supercentre (Zellers) should have Wiis in stock for Boxing Day!

I'm afraid I can't help you much, other than by referring you to Google. Search for "Wii Tracker Canada." It should bring up various sites that keep an up-to-date list of sites that have Wiis available.

Although, if you look hard enough, you can get some decent deals on ebay. I got mine off ebay for $350 CAN. It came with TP, and I got it from London, Ontario with a reciept. So, I can return it if something goes wrong.
