Nintendo Wii is I4U Top 100 Holiday Gift Tip #1

We start our 100 day countdown of our Top 100 Holiday Gift Guide with the Nintendo Wii. Why? Because the Wii console is still as hot as it was back in 2006 . Nintendo sold 555,000 Wii consoles last month alone. The Wii is still not that easy to find, especially online. The permanent Wii shortage is another reason why we feature the Wii so early in our Top 100 Holiday Gift Guide.
You should by all means buy a Wii if you see it on your Sunday stroll through the mall at Target, Wal-mart, Toys'R'Us etc. There will be no price cut for the Wii and sales offers would just be featuring Wii bundles moving closer to the Holidays. If you see a Wii for the $249 price do not hesitate and just buy it and hide it from your kids in the cellar until Christmas.
The Wii has lost nothing of its appeal through the unique interaction capabilities offered by the Wiimote and Nunchuck. Nintendo is even improving on this with the newly announced Wii MotionPlus .
Potentially Nintendo will release a new SKU bundling the Wii console, MotionPlus and Wii Sports Resort game for the Holidays.
New games for the Wii that have been already announced and will be available for the Holidays include Wii Sports Resort , Warioland: Shake It , and Mario Sluggers .

For Whom:
A Wii console is the perfect gift for kids and the whole family and of course for yourself too.

The Good:
Unique gameplay experience
Fun to play for the whole family
Broad roster of games to choose from
Backward compatibility to tons of classic Nintendo games
Low price

The Bad:
Hard to find at the low price of $249
No DVD movie playback capability
Low resolution graphics

Where to Buy:
Your best bet is the mall to get your hands on a $249 priced Wii. Amazon.com is almost always out of stock. You can sign-up for SMS alert to get notified if there is a Wii in stock. Wal-mart offers expensive Wii Bundles online.
