    Hi

    Am looking to take the wii plunge for my family of four that includes a teenager and a toddler. Now I know the console comes with 1 remote and nanchuk, what other accessories do I need for everyone?

    I am also looking at getting the wii play


    What other stuff would you reccomend and why?

    Cheers

    like said, get enough nunchucks and wiimotes for everyone. you may also want to invest in a motion+ or two.

    as for games:
    boom blox
    boom blox 2 when its released
    wii sports should come with the console
    wii sports resort
    tiger woods 10 (motion+ is almost a necessity as it makes the game so much better)
    smash brothers brawl
    mario kart
    virtua tennis or grand slam tennis
    okami
    resident evil 4 wii edition
    metroid prime trilogy
    zelda
    mario galaxy
    mario galaxy 2 when it comes out
    new super mario wii when it comes out
    world of goo (wii ware)
    muramasa: the demon blade - when it comes out
    Metroid: Other M - comes out next year
    Cave Story
    NyxQuest (wii ware)
    Your choice of virtual console games

    That should keep you busy for awhile. Go to IGN.com or some other gaming site and check out games you would be interested in.

    I have rock band 2 and big brain academy. Those seem to go well with the family. I wouldn't get the motion yet until it's certain that developers will start using them consistently - it's not like the motion+ bundle will disappear, so save your money until it's actually useful.

    You'll buy it and everyone will play all the time for a couple weeks. After that it will lose it's novelty and collect dust on your entertainment center. Save yourself a few bucks.

    motion+ is already going to be used in wii sports resort, tiger woods 10, an upcoming star wars lightsaber game, the next zelda, red steel 2, and i believe mario galaxy 2. motion+ is exactly what everyone was expecting when the wii first came out and developers would be stupid to not use it. the new gameplay possibilities with it are endless.

    also, the bundles might disappear. tiger woods 10 bundle with motion+ is already discontinued.

    Wii Play isn't worth it.

    Multiplayer: Rock Band 2 or Guitar Hero 5 (later this year), Wii Sports Resort, Tiger Woods 10, Pro-Evolution Soccer 9 (if that's your kind of thing), Super Smash Brothers Brawl, ExciteBots or Mario Kart, and Boom Blox Bash Party.

    Singleplayer: Twilight Princess, Super Mario Galaxy, Resident Evil 4, Okami, Metroid Prime 3, No More Heroes, Zack and Wiki, Little King's Story, Super Paper Mario, Geometry Wars Galaxies, WarioWare Smooth Moves, and Punch-Out!!..

    Downloadable: Mega Man 9, World of Goo, Tetris Party, Bit.Trip Beat, and Artstyle Orbient.

    As far as accessories, Wii Sports Resort and Tiger Woods 10 come with M+ attachments. I'd start with two controllers and chucks, and add on as you go.

    Thanx for the input so far folks, really appreciate it.

    I must ask though, why is the price of the console not dropping? Here in Canada, it's still 279 dollars.

    mdisen...why is wii sport not worth it?

    Just a note to all, the games I'll be interested in, will be for multiplayers and something for my 2yr old boy

    Thx

    Wii Play isn't worth it. Wii Sports is fun enough (though Resort is much better). I think your 2-yr old would like Wii Music. And the price isn't dropping because people are still buying them. You're going to have to wait until 2010 for a price drop.

    The Metroid Prime Trilogy disc comes out in a week or so and costs roughly the same as Metroid prime 3 alone (brand new). Much better deal. :cool:

    wii play is probably worth it for your little boy, since the games are even simpler than wii sports.

    I still play tiger woods weekly and the console gets used whenever there is a new good local 4 player game; a genre that is lacking on the other 2 systems.
