the games are 10 or 20 dollars cheaper than Xbox360 or PS3...so I would call that an "up" and not a down...and the "charging" of the remote is the same across all three platforms because they are wireless...would you rather have to charge it every so often or would you rather be tied to the console all the time? I have battery packs that I rotate in and out...one is charging while I play using the other pack (for Xbox 360, not Wii)

Up-
Different from any other console.
Wii remote doesn't have to be charged. just batteries need to be replaced.
It keeps you more active than a xbox or playstation

Down-
Online side of the Wii can't compete at all with the PS3's and the 360's.
Up-
It's Nintendo so like all their other platforms there are gonna be some amazing first party titles.

Up- parents are paying for it to encourage exercise
- can play it on big screen with surround sound

Down- Wii elbow/ arm/ wrist/ shoulder. Played it for the first time today. Today am struggling to move without a heat pack.

That's a good thing! Opens up new people to a whole new world of... hang on, what am I saying? Whole new world of... procrastination. That's the one

They're giving them away with phone plans at a place near uni. I wonder what proportion of your soul you have to sell to get through that plan...

A down is that mine quit reading any discs and now I have to call and try to send it in for repair. I also never liked the remotes, I think they over-aimed.
