So I got $200 to Best Buy...

I want to buy something Nintendo, because I've had nothing but good experiences with their products in the past. I'm stuck between the interactive Wii or the portable DS.

The Wii is really fun if you have people over frequently. Some of the solo games are pretty good too.

I would only consider getting the DS if you travel a lot.

Couldn't have been said any better.

Though the Wii is getting Monster Hunter 3 and that looks to be very entertaining.

Get some House of The Dead 2 & 3 for the Wii, its tons of fun.

Also get a baseball game and the other sports package with like Duckhunt, Pool and that mini tank game.

I think you'll be upset with the wii and especially with the ds. The wii doesn't really have a lot of good games and the ds isn't that great either. I would go with an xbox 360. They are great and there are a ton of games for them.

Wii has great games like Super Smah Brawl. You can probably spend HOURS playing that with friends. I know at our apartment with 6 roommates, we played that game between 2-5+ hours almost everyday for several months straight.

Unless you travel a ton, go Wii.

If you want hand held you should buy a PSP and hack it, then you can play Nintendo games on it, Sega games, and many other games on it as well as PSP games all for free.

I got a 2GB memory stick and put NBA08, FIFA08, Pokemon Fire, and Pokemon Emerald on mine (Ya, pokemon is still fun to me lol)

But you can get plenty of games and it is really awesome. But if you wouldn't want to do this I would say just buy a Wii lol that is what I voted for.

^ lol well I'm not a |337 h4x0r so I can't do that...

@ the Xbox 360 comments. Nah, I've already got friends with it anyways. From the looks of it, they're always so nervous their system is gonna crap out. One already got the "red ring of death." Sounds too finnicky to me. And too expensive.

Looks like I'm gonna go with the Wii. Best Buy says they're sold out until they get a shipment in a few weeks. They're even sold out online. How does that happen? >_<
