Should you buy a Nintendo Wii console?

If the time has come for you to buy a new console then you'll probably already know that you've got a tough choice to make. The games market has never been so loaded with quality machines, offering an unbelievable array of games to play!

With this in mind, we decided to give our opinion on the matter, and we think you should pick yourself up a Nintendo Wii console. Of all the current generation of consoles, none offer as much flexibility and fun as the Nintendo Wii!

The Nintendo Wii, launched in 2006 in Europe, is easily the best selling console of the current crop. As of March 2011, the machine has shipped a whopping 84.64 million units! That is a staggering number, especially for a company like Nintendo, which was on the verge of pulling out of the hardware race if the Wii didn't prove a success.

The Wii is priced lower than it's chief rivals, the Microsoft Xbox 360, and Sony's Playstation 3. Included in the package you'll also receive a free game, the wonderful Wii Sports. A host of bundles offering different games are also available, with the more recent title - Wii Sports Resort - packaged with a Black Wii console that's simply gorgeous!

The console is pitched at a much broader demographic than the other consoles out there, so if you're looking to involve a "non-gamer" in your gaming sessions, then this is the console for you! The variety of software available for the machine is staggering, with all of Nintendo's "Triple-A" titles present and correct.

For us, it's a no-brainer, if you need a new console, then pick up a Nintendo Wii today! You won't be disappointed!
