I have both the 360 and Wii and for the first time since ever, my 6yr old daughter played and actually had a blast playing a video game. She loves Wii sports and how easy it was for her to pick up on how to use the controller. For that I really think Nintendo has succeeded in opening up gaming to almost everyone. For myself, after playing GoW for the past week, playing the Wii was a bit of a graphical shock, but after a while I did not notice as much. I really need to pick up the component cables though..... Zelda rocks and I absolutely love how the Wii remotes were put to use. Much much much better than the old system IMHO. Awesome game. Raving Rabbits also is a lot of fun and put the new remotes to good use. Had the wife howling out load in a few mini's. Only issue I have had so far is getting connected to the internet. I could not get the Wii to talk to my wireless router with security on and when I took security off, the Nintendo servers timed out on me. I guess the servers were getting hit pretty hard. Overall, I love the little system. My girls love it and the wife loves it as well. Which could not be said for the 360 as she hates controllers with lots of buttons. She is also a bit ticked off that Mario World and Castlevania were not on the Virtual Console list yet.
