Wii On The Move
By now it's no secret that Nintendo's genre-bending Wii video game console is among the CE success stories of the year. It's been attracting non-typical gamers of all ages with its unusual game play and has been selling out in retail stores worldwide since its November 2006 launch.

Don't you mean Wii have been having lots of fun.

I am NOT a video game person, but my brother got a Wii a while back and I could easily become addicted to this one.

I keep seeing used ones at GameStop for $249. Very tempting.
