I thought I would buy a wii and wii fit rather than join a gym in a bid to shed a few post ds2 pounds.
But I figure that it will get some general family usage too - and that ds1 will be keen to have a go. He enjoys simple games on the computer and websites for things like Bob the Builder, ITNG, Harry and his bucket of dinosaurs, Thomas etc so figure he will definitely be able to play some stuff on the wii. But it would be nice to get something that is age appropriate and fun for him rather than end up with stuff that he won't enjoy - or worse, would enjoy but that dh and I would thing inappropriate for him .
I've seen a couple of packages at Game that have either: - SEGA Superstars Tennis - Mario Kart + Steering Wheel - Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 * all for an extra £40
or: - Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 - Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity - Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz * all for an extra £20
Are either of these packages worth paying the extra for?
And are there any other accessories that you really need or don't need?
Looks like we will be going for the one with mario kart in then - and play to get the extra remote. Plus another nunchuk...
Do we also need an extra wheel for mario kart - can 2 people play against each other?
I'm looking forward to getting hold of it all - and having something that will distract ds from the wii fit board as I am guessing that it is probably not up to the sort of bashing that an enthusiastic 3yr old can provide !
Now if only I can lose a pound of flesh for every wii pound spent I'll be very happy
I ended up ordering a wii with just mario kart from dixons - the other games didn't seem that good and dixons came up with a new bundle that just (!) cost £199 so put the extra £20 towards getting Wii Play as well. And hopefully they will be delivered soon!
And now I am just keeping watch on the wii fit boards to try to get one at a reasonable price... fingers crossed. They apparently had some on ToysRUs yesterday that they put out at about 4am and they sold out within 5 minutes - crazy!
