Birthday Advice!! Answered

Well...I'm in quite a predicament...a good one to be in, mind you. My birthday is coming up, and I'm trying to decide what to ask my parents for. So, what is your opinion? 1. Nintendo Wii 2. Ipod (probably nano) thanks

Go for the Wii. Apple will constantly be making new Ipods, Wii will take a couple of years...

It all depends on what you like. Are you in to music? Or are you in to Video Games?

Well, then look at the pros and cons of both. BTW, can the wii play DVDs?

I'm not sure, but ive got a dvd player. I think ill go with the wii..and save up for the sansa myself

True, and think about the future. Would you rather have a Wii in college or an mp3 player?

I've got a few years till college...but If I get the wii, ill be saving up for the sansa to buy myself..

MAN I HAVE BOTH and id say i like my wii its sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooomutch fun id geta wii!

Well, I'm only freaking out because the screen is supposed to cover the entire face of the iPod (I think).

I think that's the iphone you're talking about.

Yeah, i heard that too, that the scroll wheel will be on the touch screen, and everything.

My freind got a nano once and it broke on the first day.....because he put it in his back pocket and sat on it.

Chainsaw (and hockey-mask)

Personally, I would say, whichever you need, if you have a ps2 already, get a new mp3 player if you need one. Or visa versa. I've used a wii many times before, and they work fairly well and have some good games for them. And trust me, the actual thing doesn't make you swing it around like it shows in the commercials, so really it doesn't actually tire you out.

Well I don't generally like game consoles... but I love playing my friend's wii And I have an mp3 player, but it's ancient, and i don't use it because it's so big

i'd go with the wii because.. 1 wii comes out with games alot 2 you can check news on it 3 you can chat and compete over the internet 4 it gives you something to look forward to after a long day of work and/or a school 5i pods are so expensive i think of thm as posers because all i need is a little box that some moderate headphones plug into and play music back to me. my little ZEN Nano is good about twice the thickness of a ipod nano but it fits in my pocket so im happy pyro-

"(iPods suck!) " So true! Valuewise, at least. Sandisk Sansa crushes the Nano in features. Aesthetics... amazing to say the least. I have a 8Gig Sandisk Sansa with FM radio, radio & voice recorder, with photo and video capabilities all for $199. Plus next gen iPod will probably be out soon, and that's supposedly touch screen or something.

One thing i'd really want with the ipod would be an ihome though...I'll look into the sansa, however.

When I said the aesthetics amazing, I meant the Nano's. Although the Sansa doesn't look too bad.

I really don't care about aesthetics. It just doesn't matter. Colour it black and noone will care.

I hate how everyone freaks out when a developer says touchscreen. I have a PDA, and there's nothing special about them unless you really need one.

Wii. There's tons of other way cheaper and much better (iPods suck!) portable audio players, you don't need a fancy iPod to listen to music.

Laser cutter or waterjet

I'd go with the Wii.
