You sound like an "online shooter" kind of guy. Let me suggest buying a Wii as a second console, because otherwise you'll miss out on some of the best reviewed and most popular experiences of this generation.
I have a PS3 as my second console, to play things such as MGS4.
My rule, if you got a good game for every 50 bucks the system cost, that you want to play, you got a legitemate reason to own it, and you can justify the expense. So, at 250 bucks, when 5 games come out you really, really want to play, start saving, imo.
i do like shooters, but i dont like them as much as you think.
i just wish the online play of teh wii were up to par. even if its just a racing game, i like to play my games for a long time so i actually get their value. i.e. after i beat the singleplayer i want there to be more to do (not in all games obviously, games like uncharted are good with just singleplayer. I would however like SOME games to have multiplayer.)
if i did buy a wii, i would beat zelda and smg and a few others and then what would i have to do?
I just dont think they have enough of the good/ decent games to keep me interested.
they have the few great games that i would play, but not the 3rd party games like call of duty 4,
a decent baseball game, assassins creed, those type of games that you can play on ps/360/pc.
and all those 3rd party type games go along with all the great first party exclusives, so wii would never be enough.
Excuse me but last year Ps3 WAS THE MOST HATED CONSOLE EVER!
In my school & EVERYWHERE I saw on forumns there was negative hype
It still is the most hated console ever, in my school people think the wii has better graphics than the PS3.
in my school things have CHANGED a lot..
Wii isn't liked that much, 360 is ok, but Ps3 is suddenly popular now because the price came down...
maybe me livin in UK has something to do with it..
I live in the U.S
The hardcore gamers in my school think the wii is junk, and a joke for a console. Everyone else think its ok, my teacher played the wii and said its fun, since you move and do something.
Oh dont get me started with the DS, they think your g#y for playing that in high school(especially in weight training). Though I wont get into details since its starting to get off topic.
The people who hate DS at my school are the ones who play sport games on their psp's during class.
The people at my school still think the PS2 is the best console; they feel that the PS3 costs too much money.

I know that right now the wii doesn't have alot of online games like the 360 but I think tell me if I'm wrong that when they add more games with online compability then like SSBB then the people that hate the wii will lower of perhaps will become bigger because the sales will get better.

lol. the most hardcore game wii has is resident evil 4.
everyone at my highschool owns either a 360 or a ps3 and this one guy owns a wii thats it. i guess its cause there all hardcore gamers.
I alway thought that wi-fi (unless it's improved since my last experience) isn't that good when it comes to gaming. So I always uses cables and only use wi-fi for my laptop. I haven't tried to play online with the wii yet.
