    Is it worth it? I'd rather a PS3 but am getting pressured into the wii. I'm hearing they are quite a bit of fun, and good for when people come over. I've always pictured it as more of a young kids toy and not having the good FPS games like PS3 and Xbox. Any truth to this?
    Do they have to be modded to play downloaded games? Can they play downloaded games? Can you play online like PS3 and Xbox?

    I love my wii. alot of the games are like other nintendo system style games, but they are still quite fun.

    I cant answer the online questions because I havent tried it although my wii is hooked up to our wireless.

    We have PS3, 360 and Wii. The wii definitely gets used the least.



    PS3 is used for bluray, 360 is used for gaming and the Wii is used to collect dust.

    Not fun for parties. Porn and pringles are for parties. Wii's are not.

    I've had a wii for about 2 years and it's fun occasionally. It gets very little use, but it's fun when there are multiple people around. The games are meant for kids or for groups.

    If you're looking for an actual console to play regularly, go with the PS3 or Xbox.

    I've had a Wii since launch, I went with that console due to the price of the PS3 and the RROD issue the 360 had. Now I have all 3 and my Wii collects dust until another "core" title comes out, ie Mario, Zelda, Metroid... PS3 is kind of collecting dust and is being used for blu-ray and now I play on the 360 the most.

    Have a Wii. It's fun.
    Don't use it as much as we thought we would.

    My sister-in-law was looking for a wii for about a year (not very well apparently). I got her one for xmas. I think they've used it 2-3 times.
