The motion sensor control is a little tricky to get used to at first, but after a while it's very easy. I got the demo Wii sports game with the console, which has baseball, tennis, boxing, bowling, golf. And you have to use the sensor control for all of them. Swinging the bat and pitching the ball, rolling the bowling ball, swinging the tennis racket, and punching in boxing.

I have not used the PS3 or Xbox360 yet, but as far as I can tell, it is way ahead of it's time in sensor controls and game custom design. For example, you can design your own character in the Wii main menu, and then that character shows up in other games. You can also play your gamecube games on the Wii as well. It has controller hook ups for the game cube, and memory card slots for the game cube.

Now I own the PSP, PS, PS2, XBOX, Game Cube, Nintendo Advance, NES, and the N64...and compared to all of them, this is totally ahead of it's time.

It is very tiny as well.

Well, my wife bought it off from ebay from a guy that only paid $249.00 for it. My wife ended up paying like $500 to $600 I think.


Other great things about the Wii is that you can download games right to the console, and actually play other games from other systems on it. You can also earn points by playing games or buying certain games. You then take those points online and download games with those points.
