    Soooo I have an Xbox 360 and have had it since its been out. Even though theres new games all the time, i'm getting a bit bored of it.

    Now I dont even play it THAT much but i'd still reckon that if I got a Wii, i'd be out of my room a little more and have a bit more of a life =P because the Wii is more of a 'invite friends over' console.

    Ive played the Wii and enjoyed it so was thinking about selling my 360 for it or doing a clean swap for a Wii.

    What are your opinions?

    Stay with the 360. It is superior to the Wii in pretty much all aspects including HD. (If consider Mario as a plus to the Wii, please go die, jk

    Xbox games are better, in my opinion.

    If you're bored, get Rockband, the most fun game I have ever played.

    I love that game, but stay with the 360,just sell about 6 old 360 games and you could probably buy a used wii.

    If you want your friends to play with your Wii, go right ahead and sell it. I love the 360 and always okay it when I have time. Compared to the xbox, your Wii is going to be a small, no graphics, swing my arms around, little box. I'm not knocking it, but the only reason I kept mine was for smash bros. Its up to you.

    It depends on what your preference is. If you just want a regular game experience or FPS stay with Xbox 360. If you want a different experience and other types not on normal systems then go with a Wii. I have a Wii and I would never get an Xbox 360 but its your preference.

    Ya I would say stick with the 360. I paid a premium price for my Wii because everywhere was sold out when they first came out and I somewhat regret not getting a different system. It seemed like it was really fun at a friends house but when you get it, it barely seems fun at all

    . Still a fun system, just needs better, non kiddie, games.

    the only thing that is going to be GREAT... would be Super Smash Bros. Brawl..

    too bad it does not play normal dvd's

    if it did..

    it would be even greater

    If your still willing to trade, I would switch if you want. I, of course, will also give you the games I have for it... Wii Sports, Mario Party 8, Super Swings, Madden 07, and Far Cry. 2 controllers both with numchucks and the HD 5 Cable thing that I bought for it at Best Buy.

    It's all up to you though
