So I’m a gamer, have been from a young age. Started with Alley Cat on an old IBM “Portable Computer” and has worked it’s way up.
However due to the cost of trying to upgrade your computer every 6 months – having to the upgrade to the graphics, sound and cpu power to allow you to play a new game I’ve moved to Consoles. Between my partner & I we have a Xbox 360 & PS3. I was never concerned about not owning a Wii due to the fact (as my partner points out well) that it’s not 1080p capable.
BUT! Within the past month or so I have been pining for a Wii. One of the guys at work purchased one for the work area (which I never get to play because I start @ 7, leave @ 4.30 well before others stop working), and he bought one for home and was telling me just how much fun it was. Well if there is a hugh fun factor then forget high end graphics – sign me up! My opinion of Wii has changed significantly, the Wii-fit sounds like fun (although whoever put a weight limit on it should be shot considering you’re trying to get people FIT, one would assume you’d target unfit and overweight people??).
The other aspect is that my next generation console collection seems somewhat incomplete without a Wii. So I’m hoping our friend Gillian (who’s recently bought a Wii) can bring round his console and help me to convince my other half to join us on my Wii crusade 🙂
