If you’ve been on the fence about getting a Wii, now might be the time to bite—Amazon has the black Wii console bundle available for just $150 (with $4 shipping) from goHastings.
It was mentioned on the Want Not Facebook page (are you a fan yet?) that there are rumblings that Nintendo will be phasing out the Wii. I don’t think that’s necessarily a deterrent at this point; for one thing, the “replacement” system isn’t slated to debut for at least a year. For another, Nintendo has historically been mindful of not rendering their old technology obsolete in one fell swoop. I suspect the Wii’s successor will take Wii discs, even if the “new” games are somehow enhanced.
So, sure, if you’re committed to staying cutting-edge, you might want to wait. But I suspect most of us just enjoy having some games to play with our kids, or possibly working on our dance moves when no one is looking. Ahem.
