My Hubby got the very first Wii from the store he was at and it still works just find, even after having been dropped/pulled off (by a 2 yr. old) from the top of our entertainment center. No kinks to be found.

(I think we did have the front casing replaced because it would trigger the reset button, but otherwise fine.)

I wouldn't want to get the first bach of them, those are the ones that the kinks are found out about. I would also wait till the price dropped. But I am happy with the ones I have now.

I like the ones I have now, other than having to pay for access to features such as Netflix or hulu. Bu I problaby would upgrade on at least Nintendo, even though we now have 2 wiis (one is my red "workout" one)...always love me some Nintendo.

I think if the XBOX was to uprgade I would get that. I think their problem is now disc format and having the ability to put alot of data on a disk. I think that would be a great improvement it already. I dont have an Ipad, or desktop that I would like to be playing games on for long periods of time. I dont own a TV with wi fi capabilities so I console would make a better chioce for me. Still havent been sold on onlive yet. I guess I am just stubborn.

There are so many games on the current systems, I could keep playing the games I missed while the new systems pick up steam.

Not me. I prefer to keep getting use of my current Wii system in particular and hate the thought of the expense of a new one.

I'm not going to jump into the next console for a while, if at all. A lot of what you'll see in the next console is already playable on OnLive, or the other streaming service, Gaikai. This Fall, OnLive will be built directly into some TV sets and blue-ray players. Add this to being able to play their games on an iPad and you have a full array of options to play the next generation of games.

In other words, I already have the hardware to play a Xbox 720 or PS4 game. Unless they have an upgraded Kinect, there is no reason to spend another $500-600 on something I can already play with.
