I got my Wii, I think, 11 days ago. My wife's brother got one and they've really been having fun with it. They wanted us to get one, but we've been having a lot of trouble finding one in stock. Anyways, I was out one day, not looking for one and more or less just about tripped right over one. We've been having fun since.
Its a really cool device. Its a lot of function and product for $250. My first impression was at how small the console is. Its not all that much bigger than the original XBox controller. Its quiet, runs relatively cool. I certainly appreciated that, having it in a media tower.
Anyways, there are so many cool features. My wife and I are very impressed by the photo channel. It works so much better than anything else I've used. It kills the 360 for photo viewing. I like the fact that it uses plain non-proprietary SD cards for memory and storage.
The games have all been fun. I'm very impressed at how responsive and sensitive some of the sports games are. It seems like in Wii bowling the path of your toss with change with even the most subtle alterations in hand movement. I like it a lot.
I've played Wii Sports, Wii play, Super Paper Mario and Mario Strikers Charged and Super Swing Golf. They've all been great. Graphics and sound are much better than I would have expected. The only game I've played that I did not like was Bust A Move. Its so stupid and boring.
I'm rambling. Point of all this is, I am very impressed and the Wii is well worth the $250 cover charge.
