I thought we could use this thread to share our thoughts on Nintendo's little beauty.

So far I only have played the boxed Wii Sports. Really enjoyed tennis and surprisingly bowling. Pleased it found the wireless router I have straight away and not too much hassle in updating.

How bloody tiny is it!!!!!

With my Wii I got a bundle that gave me 2 driving games (both with free steering wheels). But I am not that big a driving fan.
The games are still sealed, so if anyone is interested in swapping one of them for a different Wii game then let me know (not Zelda or Red Steel as I have those too).

The games are;
GT Pro Series
4x4 Monster Truck

I saw someone making their way home with 2 Game bags packed full of Wii stuff at about 8am this morning as I was on my way to work. I guess he's calling in sick today. :lol:


I always wait a while before I buy a new console, early adopters always seem to suffer a bit of a raw deal when it comes to price, game selection and hardware problems.

Release date on Spongebob has slipped.

It's my day off today, which is good for me seeing as our stock of Wiis didn't turn up yesterday. They're promised today before 10am... which doesn't help the fact that there will be at least a few preorder customers waiting outside the shop at 9am :(

Like I say - I'm glad it's my day off 8)

I'm in college and can only read about your stories from here.

I should've taken the day off :?

I'm not getting one of these (dont want to get addicted to it !) but its great seeing all the excitement and that generated by it.

Totally reminds me of the 80's and when a new computer/great game came out !

Seems a very good different type of console

mine is on a delivery truck... persistent refreshing of the couriers website is not speeding up the driver.
I took yesterday off work to prep some space under the telly, and i'm off today waiting... (and on my 5th coffee already!)

You must have had some stuff to shift yesterday.
Splink!
