So I finally got a Wii, after months of searching! I’ve been randomly going to Best Buy, Fred Meyer, and just about any other place that sells Wiis, hoping they recently had a shipment so that I could pick one up. Finally, after calling Freddies every day for a week, I got the inside scoop and bought one last Monday.

I’m very happy with my purchase. It was $250, which is a great price considering the demand is still insanely high. I also bought a charger dock that cost about $38, and I bought Mario Kart.

It was a great purchase, and came with a free steering wheel that the controller hooks into. It’s a lot of fun and cool to play with friends. I only wish I had a bigger TV to truly enjoy multiplayer.

After buying Mario Kart, I decided I needed another game and bought Tiger Woods Golf ’08. Even though the new one is coming out in August, I couldn’t wait so I bought this one. It is a lot harder than the Wii Golf, but so much more fun and in depth.

I never thought I’d be considered a gamer, but the Wii has me entranced in all things game related. I don’t think I’ll ever buy a Playstation or Xbox, but spending a couple hundred of my tax rebate on a Wii was a great investment.  Next stop, Plasma TV!

  1. You’re lucky.

    I’m still on a quest to find one.

  2. It’s the single greatest purchase of my life. I’d recommend calling one place and get a line on when a possible new shipment will arrive. Then just keep calling every morning.

  3. Mario Kart is awesome. I can’t wait until Wii Fit comes out. I think thats actually tomorrow. You’ll be amazed the amount of people that plays the Wii. There are grandparents who play along with their grand children. Truely an amazing system. Sometimes simplier is better. You don’t really need all those advance features of the PS3 or Xbox 360.

  4. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Profiterole.
