    Right now I have my door closed and locked holding out the masses(Dad, little bro, 4 of his friends) I couldn't get some extra controllers(Walmart didn't have any available) They all saw me playing the Wii and the next thing I know I am kicked out of my own room and my Dad has played 15 games of bowling, my brother is really into baseball, Tennis and Bowling and his friends are into the boxing, bowling and baseball.. I CAN'T GET RID OF THEM!! My Dad threatend to kick down my door when I refused to allow him play bowling!! Out of a possible 8 hours(because I have had to work today) of playtime I have only played 2 hours.. they have taken up the rest!!

    I played Wii sports with my brother and dad tonight, and my grandmom and mom both watched, while saying how much of a step up it was!


    Nintendo I feel a winner!

    your parents probably gave you the money to buy it - let him play. hell, even if he didn't - he feeds you and gives you power to play the thing.

    This is fantastic news - I wanted to see the reaction from everyday users. I think I will go out and buy one tomorrow. Screw Playstation, $600 and I could buy another mac.

    Umm.. the money comment.. well it was my own money I used to buy the system. I did everything myself... got to the store, waited 10 hours and paid for it with my own hard earned money.

    Played Wii Sports for nearly six hours today, although I suppose part of that was I and my group of friends creating individual Miis, many of which bore an uncanny resemblance to ourselves.

    It was a blast.

    I have a feeling I'll be in the same situation. Ah well, it's my birthday just 14 days after Christmas so I'll get my own Wii if my family are using it too much :eek:
