With Christmas almost upon us there’s a growing rush to get Christmas presents bought and this year games consoles are high on many peoples wish lists but is the Nintendo Wii the most wanted christmas present?
Judging by the rate at which John Lewis has been selling out and restocking with their Nintendo Wii Console bundles I would say it has to be one of the most wanted Christmas presents.
Currently there’s a very stylish limited edition available, a black Nintendo Wii console that many really like. It comes with Wii Sports Resort, black Nunchuk and black Motion Plus.
Online retailers are really trying to offer the cheapest Nintendo Wii and some are making up special discounted bundles by adding in Wii games.
There’s of course still the standard white console available – same functionality as the limited edition black, just a different colour.
It’s not just the console itself that is sought after though. There are many addons to get. In particular, there’s the Wii Fit Plus with Wii Balance Board – brilliant! Certainly something many are considering to help with shedding those Christmas pounds.

What about the reviews of this games console, are they good?
Well as a highly sought after Christmas present you’d expect reviews to be good, and they are:
‘Being retired it is perhaps strange to be purchasing a Wii. I really wanted it for WiiFit which I now have. This is a remarkable machine if you want to keep fit and play some sports as well. If you want a black one then get it sooner rather than later.A life changing purchase.’ from Amazon
‘Great piece of kit, and at a great price as well. Extremely fun to play, especially when you have a few mates round. Fun for all the family.’ from Play.com
