Finally had my first go on a Wii just now.

Initial impressions are that it is a lot better than I thought - very responsive and nice interface and so on.

But I have to say I wouldn't buy one. I personally think the novelty will wear off quite quickly and the limitations of the controls will mean that after a while, games will all start to feel kind of the same.

Also, and this may be because I'm in my early thirties, Wii Sports Boxing has just left me completely knackered. I really can't imagine coming in from a long day at work and thinking that playing that again would ever seem appealing.

So, to sum up my Wii view, great fun at parties and I imagine highly amusing when drinking in groups but not really a daily-play console for folks like me.

Bloody good exercise though, so I applaud Nintendo for bridging the gap between computer-game-culture and physical activity.

Off to collapse now. Night.

I agree. The Wii is good fun for a bit, but I can't imagine it being much more than just a gimmick in the long run.

I have a Wii, and the game I'm looking forward to the most right now is Super Smash Bros, and that doesn't even use the motion sensor! So yeah, it is a bit of a gimmick.

Nintendo seems to like to force these new input systems, and I feel the same way about the DS. The Wii Virtual Console is pretty cool, though.
