    Old news but still always nice to rub it in peoples faces who said the PS3 would own this generation.

    On a side note, the wii's little sister, Nintendo DS, is outselling the PSP, PS3 and PS2 combined.

    Not surprising. People love this thing. Unfortunately I can't get into it. Not a big fan of all the moving and what not with the controller, I'm too lazy for that I'll stick with my 360

    Its rare that a family only has one of these, many own the 360/wii or ps3/wii because there are just some games you gotta play (Resident evil 5 upcoming for me) that you just won't get on the wii, and if you do, the controls alone won't be worth it for the lost of graphics (force unleashed)

    True. Unfortunately I'm not that rich . I don't know. My sister has a Wii and I've played it a few times, just not into the way it works. I can see how it's fun to alot of people though, pretty genius idea by Nintendo to make a game system like the Wii.

    Wii Fit is awesome.

    I'll probably end up getting a PS3 too though.
