It is official. Wii wiiturned the Wii for a Wiifund.
Although I had some fun playing it, I deifnately did not see the long term value and did not see it working well for a workout. Not better than the lower cost Xavix anyhow. So, it is now history but… Funny story!
When I entered the WalMart someone started to follow me from a distance. It was obvious he was following me so I assumed it was security. As I approched the customer service desk to Wiiturn the Wii he asked me “does that Wii work or is it defective”. I told him it works fine and I just didn’t like it.
I then proceeded to return the Wii. It took forever and right when I finished, that guy stepped up to the customer service counter and asked if he could buy it!
I left before I saw the result, but I assume he is the new owner of the Wiitarded video game system.
BTW — Once I tried Madden ’08 on the Wii that is when I knew it was going bye-bye. The graphics were below that of my Xbox (not Xbox 360, just plain old Xbox) and the gameplay was just lame.
Goodbye Wii. Wii will not miss you!

The game play WAS lame. Imagine that… it took forever to return it
Not at Walmart it wouldn’t take forever to return something… let’s put it this way – I was able to run home and pick up a few forgotten items and still sat outside for a good 10 minutes.
Now I can’t come to the door with a friend and say “Wii would like to play.” Sometimes there is more fun just having the game, than playing the game…
I did like the bowling. But I can’t see pay the price they want for that game just to bowl. How many trips to the mini-bowling lanes would that pay for???
I think that if I want a game system, I’d settle for something else. Not that I’m into video type games anyway.
