My first experienced with Wii was when a local mall launches their Cyber Zone area. I was able to play bowling with it and got a little bit excited. It made me want to own one since my children always play with our PC and they lack the time to physically get themselves involved and I think Wii is the solution to get them sweat a bit while playing.
Anyway, I am planning to buy them one but probably not this year. I have other plans for this year so I need to buy it next year! My eldest daughter is already excited since she experienced it too during the Cyber Zone launching at the mall!!
