After much thought on whether I would get a Wii or not and then the worldwide shortage happened, I didn't put much hope that I would ever get one, however, on Saturday morning, my wife was shopping in the city and she noticed Toyworld in the Myer Centre had just got 4 in. So, being the good wife she is, she bought it with a second controller (remote and nunchuk).
Despite only being 480p and the graphics looking at little chunky on my 60 inch TV, this console is great. The gameplay more than made up for it. Having only the included game Wii Sports (and Wii Play, which is a bunch of mini-games), I can say that both myself and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the Wii.
And what a workout it was ... with the Boxing game, providing to be the most intensive and also a legal fun way to beat up the wife :P - I have to say, it's definitely not a passive experience and by Monday I know I'm going to have a sore arm from Bowling.
