When I had a 360 I didn't play on it.
When I got a PS3 I didn't play on it.
Don't get me wrong, the Wii has some damn great if not amazing games. The problem is, for me at least is that once you have a taste of the new gen, you just can't downgrade yourself to the Wii. I usually only play on my Wii is when a Nintendo mascot/leading (Mario, Zelda, Metroid, SSBB, etc) game comes out.

Ive noticed that most of the Wii's big games like Donkey Kong Country Returns, goldeneye, mario, zelda, ect ect. Are of a higher quality than most of the games coming out on the other consoles. Its a shame that the wii doesn't have many though....

Just my opinion.

I agree on this subject. However, Skyward Sword needs to come out already.

I've been let down by a lot of 3rd party Wii games. Now I only play 1st party stuff because it rarely disappoints.

Unfortunately, Skyward Sword is only 50% complete at this moment.

Nice. I've been saving up and selling stuff. I've so far even prevented myself getting tickets to Iron Maiden just so I can buy a wii. I'm not too far from my target. I've had lots of setbacks though. It's gonna be awesome anyway Razz Just for Twilight Princess. To be a wolf!!!!! \m/

Once you already own a 360 it makes more sense to own a wii rather than ps3 (and vice versa), considering 360 and ps3 are practically the same thing, the only exception being exclusives which are few on both systems, whereas wii is in a different league.

Yeah I see what you mean, but most of Wii's games don't interest me at all.

I thought the same thing too, until I played some of these games that didn't interest me. Ya never know until you try. =)

True, but I own a PS3 and a 360 now and I just can't justify buying a Wii

Even after playing wii loads of times at friend's houses I knew it isn't the sort of system for me. Yet lately I've had a strong hunger to play Legend Of Zelda. I'd always wanted to get it on gamecube but it's so damn expensive. And wii's the only way I can satisfy this longing so I'm soon going to be biting the bullet and buying one.
