Wiis are a blast. I'm thinking about adding one to the PS3. Like you, the Wii Fit is of interest to my wife so it's slowly passing the WAF test. Slowly....

The PS3's failure rates fall within industry standard. It is a well designed machine and certainly reliable. There are some that have had trouble with their PS3 but these cases are rare.

Has anyone played MLB 09: The Show? That is the one game I wish was available on the 360. I want to play it so so badly, it looks sick.

Yes. So far, I like it a lot. It is challenging, but not impossibly so. . .and it feels like baseball. I don't like the arcade style baseball games where home runs are as prevalent as bags of peanuts.

My all time favorite baseball game is High Heat 2004. Not the best graphics-wise, but it really nailed the pitcher/batter interface. You earned hits, and could work the counts for fastballs. MLB 09 gets very close to High Heat.

It is that realistic type gamplay that has attracted me to the game. No other baseball game can compete on the 360. With baseball season under way and watching my Blue Jays \:\) playing so well makes me want to play this game so much. This is the one PS3 exclusive I want to play more than any other.
