WiiMania hits Bangalore

Aanish has been pining for a Wii ever since the day that Nintendo announced it. Couple of years later, his wish has finally come true. Last week, I was in Los Angeles and was finally able to pick one up for him. Actually, thanks are due to Uncle Mitul who tracked down what seemed like the last remaining console in town. This was the day after I spent running all over town and paying a visit to Toys R Us, Best Buy, Target etc. to try and locate this elusive game.

Was the wait and the effort in acquiring this worth it?

The answer is a resounding YES! This new invention from Nintendo is really pretty cool. This thing is not just a game but you can get real time news, weather etc by connecting the Wii to the internet via your Wi-Fi network. Games are a lot of fun and all of us have been quite intrigued by this little white device. Summer vacation has started for the kids and the Wii will no doubt be this summer's blockbuster in our house!
