Wii - Nintendo

Wii - Nintendo [$199.99]

Face it, most game machines are designed for the certifiable coach potato. Nothing wrong with that, but if you want a little more action in your action game or you want to buy a gaming system for the kids in your family and encourage them to remain active, then Wii is your best bet. In a recession-friendly move, Nintendo also recently lowered the price on the box to $200 and it comes packed with a disc of sports games, including a quite fun version of bowling. Personally, I'm hooked on pool, as the Wii uncannily mimics the real motions your hands make while shooting the cue ball with the remote. It's hopelessly addictive and also the perfect excuse to pretend you're having a night out while in fact staying in and cozy.
