I just purchased a Wii for my wife (partly for her b-day). Wasn't an easy task since it's been out of stock pretty much everywhere here in Austin! I spent the past week calling all the local game stores to check if they had received some. Well yesterday our local EB Games had one and I called my wife and she went and got it immediately.
She also got Wii play and paper Super Mario (she loves everything Mario).
I haven't had the time to play much but I really enjoy the Wii sports and I can't wait to get Zelda and Tiger Woods Golf!
I hadn't purchased a Nintendo console since the SNES and I have to say that they're back in the game!! This is truly fun and it's true that pretty much anybody in the family can enjoy it.
I'm gonna get the component cable and try it on my projector.
