Wii

There will be a post about the awesome Thanksgiving dinner we had later, but we just got back from Will's house where we were playing with his new Wii!!!! It was so cool! We boxed, golfed, tennised, and bowled! I can't wait to try it again. You have to try it.

I had not heard anything about it really before last week. It's a new Nintendo game console (?) and you hold this remote in your hand and move your body like you would. You bowl with the controller in your hand and it records your movements. So if you flick your wrist, it will curve the bal appropriately. Will is really good at it, but he's had more practice than any of us.

I can't wait to try it again!!

The movement is brilliant on Nintendo's part. What a way to get lazy couch potatoes moving!

My DH wants one of these, so after the market cools a bit, we may get one. I can see how it'd be really cool hooked up to a 53" TV.

I've not seen a Wii up close and personal (yet), but I imagine it's cool, or at least novel.

I doubt I'll go get one ever, as I dont have much use for game systems. My PS2 does get a workout though, whenever I want to watch a movie...
