For anyone, getting a new games console is new and scary but the wii is very easy to set up and you're ready to go 15 minutes after it's in your home.
The console comes with all the essentials, a wiimote, nunchuk and wii sports (great for parties) but if there are more people in your house who like the wii, you'll to save up at least £45 for another wiimote and nunchuk.
The gameplay is realistic as you have the sensors in the wiimote which react to your movement which is really fun.
There are loads of fun channels you can download for free or get by receiving wii points but only get wii points for the internet channel, everything else that's good is free.
Xbox and PS3 fans say the quality isn't good but it doesn't harm the gameplay one bit and you can make Miis and incorporate them into certain games like wii sports.
All in all this console for £180.00 is fantastic and is great for people who invite their friends to their house a lot and games for the Wii cost £30 unlike Xbox or PS3 games that cost £40-50 and there are lots of decent £20 games as well.
