question about the Wii

im considering buying one of these but have never seen one on display anywhere to get a good look at the graphics, feel for the game. Iv seen the ps3/360 just about every walmart, target, etc... but havent seen the Wii anywhere. Id like to actually see it in action before I buy one... anyone know where to see one?

every gamestop I have been in has them on display. Most others dont because the controllers are wireless and will "walk away"

Even at gamestop you have to ask for the controller at the counter.

For only twice the retail price, with none of the warranty. Cool as shit nonetheless... I LOVE my Wii... My 3 year old can play it, and have loads of fun, but so can I. Wii Sports is one of the best bundled games ever. I wanna get WiiPlay soon so I can play the Tanks game.

Basically you gotta look at Wii Play as a $10 game bundled with the $40 Wiimote, not as a $50 game. If it was $50, it totally wouldn't be worth it, but since you get a Wiimote, which is $40 by itself, you're really getting the game for $10 and it's well worth that.

Tanks, Billiards, Air/Laser Hockey, and Shooting are worth the $10 by themselves. The rest of the 9 games range from blah to moderately fun.

That being said... I still haven't been able to locate a copy of Wii Play... though I'm not really actively searching, just check whenever I hit Best Buy or Fry's.

the target on 121 & Custer a quite a few sunday night. I picked one up for the 2nd controller and another game.

I'd agree for a $10 game its fine but on its own its not a $50 game.
