Wii...who's got one.

Hey, I have been thinking about getting a Wii but haven't had a chance to try one.

What is you take on it.

I have a 360 for 2 weeks but I didn't find it to be fun, I am thinking the Wii would be...especially drunk bowling, boxing etc....

Wii is the most interactive I love the hell out of mine.....But it does lack in games compaired to the 360...

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

Has anyone else have had problems witht he controllers not working, just blinking? Ive got 2 and one used to work fine, untill it stopped all of the sudden?

Anyone know what it might be? I bought my extra remote along with the Wii play games. and it would just blink, compared to the one that came with my console the lights on it are steady. I went to walmart and opened 2 more and they were all just blinking. Not sure if I need to do something...

Yah, the batteries go out fast as hell.
I bought some lithium ones and they lasted a little bit longer but you can't beat rechargeable ones - you should do the same.
They do sell a 2 controller docking/charging station . . .

You need to sync them.

Open the front port for the sd card on the wii, you'll see a red button above the card slot, open the back of the controller, same red button below the batteries, hit the red button on the wii, then the red button on the controller, and it should sync them up.

Just got Super Mario Galaxy for Wii, great shit! (especially drunk)

I also have an Xbox 360 and like Halo 3 multiplayer (drunk of course)

or if you have a PS2 just go get one of the guitar hero's and play (drunkenly)

Well, I would think that if the batteries were down, they wouldnt be any blinking on the controllers and Ive tried putting brand new batteries on it already.

90gt50 is probably right - I didn't even think of that, it was a long time ago when I synced my controllers

The one that comes with the Wii is pre-synced to the console. Any new one's you buy, need to be synced. Check the manual for the exact procedure, but it's fairly simple. There's a flap on the front of the Wii where you can insert an SD card. Under that flap is also a "sync" button. On the Wiimote, under the battery cover, is a small "sync" button as well.

Press the sync button on the console, and then the sync button on the wiimote, and it should pair up and be ready to use.

And I see it's been answered already. Carry on

My fiance' got one this morning at Game Stop. $279 OTD. They had very few, and sold out already. She was at another one before that, they had 7, and were sold out before she got to the counter.
