    Just picked up a Wii

    The wife is driving me crazy. After months of expressing interest, me being a pest at a few stores, i finally score one. Now, she seems disinterested because a few friends told her the controllers are difficult to master.

    It all depends on the game.

    Start her off with Wii sports, as it's quite easy to pick up and play. As an example, the simplified controls on that title only register when you swing the "tennis racket", as the virtual Mii character will get into position on its own.

    Too much of a pain to ship it without asking a premium. They will be out in force within a short time.
