This year’s elusive must have present is a Nintendo Wii. Those clever kids have a console more interactive than ever. Even girls are meant to like this one although I’m reserving judgement until I get to play on one. Ever since I bought Himself an xBox for his birthday and then spent hours having to read in the bedroom whilst he zapped aliens, I’ve not been the biggest fan of gaming.
Himself really really wants a Wii. So, being a doting girlfriend I have tried to buy one. Everywhere is sold out, with the exception of one online store who is selling that it at £100 over the rrp and some unscrupulous eBay sellers who are doubling the price. He’lll have to wait until his birthday, or at least until they sort the strap problem out.
Numerous users have reported breaking light shades and TVs as they get a bit excited and wave their arms around. Now it seems the straps aren’t strong enough and the hand held remotes are flying off in living rooms all over the country. Some of the more amusing stories can be read on wiihaveaproblem.com
Looks like Himself will be getting socks for Christmas.
