Is it worth getting the Wii?

I know its cheap and all but is it really that great and fun. Also I have heard that the grafics are nothing compared to that of the Xbox or PS3.

    No I would say it isnt unless you are 5-8 years old. I mean come on, how many times does Mario have to save that airheaded danger bound princess before he realizes she isn't worth it?

    also some info to help you out:

    PS3 is the best, do not be fooled by prices or people telling you they like a system that is limited to only a few games.

    PS3 is the fastest, has the most capabilities, and has the most games and developers

    PS3 has a 60 gig hard drive, There isnt a need for a card to save game play data on anymore. It has Bluetooth wireless 802.11 networking and controllers. The controller doesnt need replacement batteries, you simply connect it USB with the extention they provided you with and it recharges or you can connect it for non wireless play. PS3 is HDTV display 480i and 1080i and also displays on A/V connection. You can install another OS (operating system) to the PS3 and switch from Sony's OS to the other (so far Linix is available, Vista will be available after it's release) You can save Pictures, Music, and Videos on the system that Sony has supplied which gives great playback features and organizing, it has a Memory Stick Reader that most PC's have now too. You use this for game saves that you want to take with you, or for Music and media files you want to save on it from your PC. It has a Web Browser and Online Sony store with free dowloads and game previews, also a Messenger Application that can connect you to any PS3 user, It has a update feature built in for fixes to bugs and data, also a backup feature and restore feature. It plays PS1 PS2 and PS3 games and also can connect via BlueTooth wireless to a PSP and enter act or share data and media. It plays BlueRay DVD's, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-RW, DVD's, PictureDiscs, Video CD's. and a ton more features...

    Wii and 360 are limited systems with limited capabilities and limited games.

    360 has online game play, for a fee of course. Wii said they will launch online game play in a year (they said that about the GameCube too, never happened)

    PS games are free to play online. Only one game was made that required payment for online play that was FFXI, and that was because it was also online PC playable.

    PS3 and Sony has most companies in exclusitivity contracts for game titles. PS has the most games and gets the most developement.

    the wii is more for somebody who really enjoys the nintendo franchises, like zelda, mario, classics like those. its a ton of fun, and highly innovative with the motion sensor controller. the game quality at the launch and today is not as high as the 360's (i dont know about the ps3), other than zelda, but im expecting it to improve quickly. also, the online play is only available for one game so far,but im sure it will grow immensly soon.

    i break the systems down as follows:

    the wii is innovative, but the games and graphics are less mature than those of the other systems.

    the ps3 is supposedly the highest graphic rating yet, but without franchise games aside from resident evil, it is for the more technology admiring gamer.

    the 360 is the most all around system of the recent consoles. it has excellent graphics, on both hd and non hdtvs, it also has incredible online functionality, and with a year under its belt, its game quality is incredibly high, and with franchise game halo 3 coming soon, it should continue to dominate.

    The graphics do suck, but the Wii is the best system available. It has the best game play, and it is much easier to control because it uses natural movements of the hand, rather than d-pads and thumb-sticks.

    i think it is worth it cuzz its not like regular video game consols, instead of sitting down with a controller and pressing buttons, where its not actually like ur doing the work, but with the wii, u can actually feel like ur in the game and really involved, i think the wii is an awsome invention.

    Maybe. If you have an interest in video games. Just don't be dissapointed. It may not work like on TV
