Nintendo is holding it's own, globally. May be a consideration if/when the markets rebound.

Nintendo has re-directed the Wii to include games not intended for the whole family, just signed some deals for exclusive rights to games that will compete with Xbox and PS.

I picked one up too but it's still in the box for a while. Picked up the sports package with extra chucks, steering wheel, golf club, bat, etc. Also got Madden 09 and Mario Kart.

So I hear - Zelda being one of them - my son wants me to get that so he can beat it when he comes home from college at Christmas.

I'm not a game junkie, but Mario Kart can keep me occupied for hours...maybe not hours, but lots of fun.

I bought one last winter for the, uh, "kids". Its great entertainment when you have a few friends over for beers. Its worth the price just for the bowling game that comes with the package.

I did not like ZELDA.

Pirates of the Caribbean is a good game.

We've had one since x-mas. The Wii sports does a good job of letting you jump right in and start playing.

A few games I like to play with the kids (10 and 5yrs of age):

Tiger Woods Golf (we have the 2008 version). That's just fun.
2K8 baseball- picked it up at Target for under $30 the other week. Nice to do a "quick game" just to kill some time on a rainy afternoon.
Mario and Sonic Summer Olympics. You can probably find that on sale somewhere.

Get yourself the extra remotes/knunchuck Get a quailty battery charger. I bought mine at Radio shack for about $20.

Another game not mentioned that I had a slight addiction to was Cabella's Big Game Hunter. Different game and different hunts all over the world. Lots of fun.
