    Have fun shopping. I didn't even know what a Wii was until this year. Still I only know it has something to do with games. Buy me something pretty!

    I think they are pushing the Wii because the PS3 came down in price $100. So now it is 299 instead of 399.

    I agree with mommy, they pushed down the Wii price to $199 b/c Xbox and PS3 pushed down their top consoles to $299. That's a great bargain if it comes with a $50 gift card which you can use to purchase a sports game, extra controller, or the yoga pad. The Wii is great if you want your kids to be active while staring at the tube. Have fun!

    It most likely only comes with one controler. The controler/nunchuck combo costs like $70 in the store, but you can get them for $35 (I think that's what I paid) on ebay. The catch is that seller is in hong kong. They said it could take 3 weeks to get it, but I got mine in about 7-10 days. My experience was very good, although at the time of purchase I wasn't too sure how it would turn out. Hope this helps, cause all that extra stuff really adds up....

    Can Wii play any movies? I just thought about it.

    Wow that's great! I should of bought when I bought a tv! Amazon had a bundle pack with KillZone 2 + Uncharted for 299 on Black Friday! I'm going to wait until Christmas Eve for any bundle packs. I totally missed out! How's the Blu Ray on that thing?

    Wii Fit is awesome! The exercises really work for me and I've actually lost some weight by using it. The Sports game is fun too, my favorite one is bowling. Oh, and you've gotta get Mario Kart, the steering wheel makes it even more fun than the other Mario Kart games!
