    so my old ladys parents wanted to get their kid a game system for xmas
    he's a wii fan but they couldn't find one
    so they got a PS3

    question is, how abundant are the Wii's this year?
    and what would you guys advise doing with the PS3?
    are they still going for $$$ on ebay etc?

    anyone out there with a Wii want to trade for a PS3?

    I suggest 60 visits to the driving range, or a tennis racket and some balls.

    lol, i'm not retarded
    looking for an even up trade or else they'll just take it back and get a refund

    i thought Wii's were suspossed to have lots of supplies, the PS3 was suspossed to be limited

    Wiis keep coming out but they sell out just as fast.

    I can't find a friggin remote for the life of me.
    Most every single thing wii related gets sold out, even those stupid points cards.

    So far from people I've talked to that have spent time with both. Wii wins hands down on fun factor.

    I have a Wii and wouldnt trade it for a PS3 unless Sony put out a worth while game.
    as of right now there's not a single PS3 game I'd want to own.

    Zelda is really good.
    Rayman is a total blast play, some things are kinda basic but it's still a blast to play
    wii sports, 1 player meh who cares, 2 players rock!

    It took me about 3 weeks to find a Wii and that's only because the guy in the back who had one on hold thought Rachelle was cute. (she asked)

    Games reviewed so far by gamespot

    other then sports and FPS looks like nothing scored over an 8 not even tony hawk =(

    Either way I'm not pressed to run out and buy a PS3 I'm with B on the whole wait till GT5 comes out.

    Either way my whole point was from what I've read it looks as if more people are having a "blast" with the Wiis
    While in the PS3 world I keep hearing about how great it looks, or how much they just sold it for on ebay.

    PS3 = graphics, but with same old controller set up.

    Wii = different. active gaming.

    The Wii is fun, and cheaper.
