They also have bowling that mimics the swing of the bowling ball.

It’s time to exercise with the Wii! The wii has many exciting features that allow you to exercise in the comfort of your own home. Wii sports or the Wii balance board allow you to do exciting exercises and help you track the calories you burn. You also go through routines and it tracks your routines through out the week. It also keeps track of your performance so you can compare and know for a fact whether you've improved or not.

I had to get me a Wii to see if it was worth buying and I was surprised. The games were more my style and family like. I also enjoyed the wii fit and wii sports. No offense to the x box or ps3, but motion is fun. The ps3 and x box 360 are now coming out with motion controllers and they seem promising. Do you want a wii now?
