Great

The Wii was born to succeed from the first moment that it was revealed. Well, except for the name. But that was a long time ago. All penis jokes aside, the system is making a great impression on American households already, and what better to widen the demographic than with Wii...read full review

ya, I think these kinds of games could actually get the whole family playing.

I hope you don't have to stand up to play it though, I like my armchair!

I think this is awesome, it'd be nice to get the whole family playing.

I think the coolest thing is that the characters in the game will look like you, as shown at the E3 conference.

Methinks this may come with the Wii, if so - :D :D

Narnia Wii said:

The game will obviously come bundled with the Wii. I mean come on, the game looks interesting and all, but I don't think many people will buy it. The best thing Nintendo could do is include it with the Wii at launch. That way, even if people don't buy any games, they'll will be able to play one (actually at least 4).

Well at E3 this got "Best Sports Game".

Link said:

I agree with Narnia, although it was the Best Sports Game and looks like it would be a lot of fun, it's hardly worth it to pay full price. Well i'm sure either way it will be successful.

Avatar

Jablet said:

Well I think it'd probably be worth paying for, my guess is it'll be more fun and have a longer lifespan than many full price games.

Koen van Beeck said:

I may even end up buying this game. Looks like a great multiplayer, at least.

Buggz said:

I seriously don't think they'll charge full price for Wii Sports, nor will they bundle it with the Wii. I think it'll be a budget game.

Tennis all the way! Whoo-hoo! ^^

Go to www.play.com and its 49.99 plus free shipping when the game comes out. They have other good deals there too.

ARGH Noah of Nintendo Bunker shut the hell up, everyone hates you. This game looks awesome then you show up, damn it just shut up.

This is so great and convenient, I plan on playing all of these sports at school this year :) I'll be great! Oh and Noah of the bunker, if the wii has online I'm gonna be looking for you and I'm gonna pwn you good.

Fishmon said:

I'm getting this no matter what the price is! Oh and hyrule lord I read somewhere that Mr Miyamoto confirmed that there will be a face creator thingy on tennis. Yay! I'm not 100% sure it's true though so don't get your hopes up. They've already confirmed it's going to be released "pre thanksgiving" so I'm gonna buy it, make it look like all my relatives (28 of them) and show it off at thanksgiving. I'll play baseball and golf, but I'm mostly gonna play tennis!

Flamic said:

Gotta agree with sharks there, if you don't like the Wii get out of here.

Noah is the video game version of Simon from American Idol.

You don't have to worry koop4. The characters automatically move by themselves. That's good for you but I don't like it.

I'm pretty sure this will be bundled with the Wii. Which is good since my list of games I'm getting at launch is huge.

This game does look very interesting, my family would probably play this. I will check it out definitely!

This is probably going to be the best party game ever.

The Flight game is actually in this series as well. At E3 I saw Wii Sports: Flight whatever.

Lord Random said:

The only member of my family that will never play this is my lil bro. He hates Nintendo. He thinks that it's crap because it's innovative. Well, different actually. Oh guess what? He wants a PS3 when it comes out. And what's so great about the PS3? It's got better graphics than PS2 and wireless capabilities, period. I try to explain to him how the Wii will make games easier to play but guess what? He doesn't listen. I'm getting off topic here. Anyway, nifty looking game (Lord PS doesn't care) that should have most of the family playing. Hope it goes well.

[Hits NoNB with hammer, NoNb loses 1000 hp]. Come on Noah of Nintendo Bunker you always make rude comments or say somthing crazy. The game may look dumb to you but it might just be a good game.

It will probably come with the wii system.

IM THE NUB said:

I'm trying to think what sports would be in this game if there are over 30 (rumor). List your thoughts on what games Wii Sports will have. I'll go first, I say running.

Unknown said:

Basketball, Golf, Baseball, Tennis, Football, I can go on forever.

ganondorfrules said:

Cricket and plenty more I guess.

Danny D said:

I would love to see Cricket adapted on to the WII controller. If you are from USA: cricket is the best game ever.

tabsina said:

There are only 5 sports in this game: Tennis, Golf, Bowling, Boxing and Baseball.

I want to make a little Mii so he can kick butt at Boxing!

weeman said:

Hi this looks like it's going to be the best, but I think it will be hard to use the controllers with the 1 in 1 hand and the other in the other hand.

This looks amazing. Does anyone know if you can play it online? Looking forward to designing my Mii.

DarkVic said:

A perfect addition to the Wii console. This is going to be awesome!

Hey said:

Since the controllers are one handed, you could literally play with yourself. Eww.

Super-Dooper said:

Good thing it comes with these inside the wii.

FoolKilla said:

Makes it cost more to pack it in, but they said they wanted anyone to get used to the Wiimote so any age could play further games in days.

joe said:

I will get it, but I think it would be cool to have a football game in it.

Jake said:

Isn't this coming out with the Wii? That's what my friend James told me.

honky dog said:

Noah shut the hell up about games being rip offs. No shit that there would be more than one baseball game. Besides how is it a rip off if in that game you're using an actual bat!

Nintendo iQue said:

Have you guys seen the videos of people these games? I'm jealous of those people. It looks so fun to play!

Avatar

Pazzy said:

Well I've really got no choice in the matter of buying this game because it's bundled with the console. So I'm not too concerned with how it turns out. But having said that, this game will let me see my Mii in action, so I guess I am excited!

Scooby!_Jew said:

God, Wii just doesn't stop getting better. First they have a console that's as small as 3 stacked DVD cases, then they have a wireless, motion-sensing controller, and now a sports game that comes with the console that you can play like you're actually there. Jebus Rice I can't wait for the Wii!

I would get it even if it were not bundled.

The only place it isn't bundled is Japan I heard.

I hope they make a tennis game other than this. And I don't mean mario tennis. Maybe US Open and Wimbledon kind of game. With Federer in it of course.

This game is pretty good. Although the graphics could have been better.
