    I just got one about a week ago and I have lost 7#s playing this thing its alot of fun and give you alot of exercise. I would highly recomend this system to anyone with kids. If there gonna play video games it might as well be one that gives them a workout. the bowling and tennis are a blast.

    We have one and love it. Bowling and boxing are great. Golf and tennis is also good. Never had any problems with set up or anything else. Wife uses the boxing game as exercise routie. Very realalistic. Highly recomend.

    My dad and mom used it to bowl which they have beenable to do for awhile since a real ball was to hevy.

    That will probably be my next gen system. Theres so many games I havent played on my ps2 and just dont have the time but I plan on getting one some time. I love the idea of getting exercise while playing video games. Be careful using the wiimote, I think I seen where some of the straps snapped and sent the controller into the tv screens. I think they fixed it though but if you got one of the first ones you might want to check it out, I think they had a recall.

    Seen my buddy play the boxing and he about had a heart attack. LOL

    Great exercise for sure and agree that if you want the kids to play games that this is the one for them.

    We have a wii, and feel the same. The only complaint about the fishing game, is there is only one location to catch catfish!

    Pez,

    Yup, that is the game we have. And, that is game where it seems there is only one lake to catch catfish, and up to this point, I have not caught a single one.

    I opted to buy the ps3, I wish I would have bought the wii. I definetely need some exercise. The ps3 has awesome graphics, but there is'nt alot of games out for it yet. The good thing is I can play all my ps2 games on it and its a blue ray disc player too. Although I have'nt been able to find any movies on blue ray that I want to watch.
