Question about Nintendo Wii Console
I have heard that the game cubes discs will work for Wii, but I am wondering if the games designed for Wii will work in the game cube console. The game cube we have belongs to my six year old grandson, and we are not ready to buy him an expensive console just yet, until he is more responsible.
No. The gamecube discs are more the size of a minidisc and the ones for wii are full size discs like a DVD. My son is also 6 (going on 7 of course!) I decided to take the plunge after a long time battling with this decision. I just put the wii up high so he gets my help to load/change discs. He LOVES it! He is so great at it too! He loves the WiiSports, which the console comes with. (He even beats me at bowling!) It's a fun set up. I love that there are many games we can play together as a family, Cranium Kadooi, WiiSports, Playground, SmartyPants, as well as Active Life is due out soon and that looks to be awesome for some indoor activity! It is hard to make the decision to spend that much. I have been hanging onto the idea the last 2 years, that the price would drop and I would buy it then. Well, the price does not go down. In fact, it's hard to find at the retail price as it is hard for the stores to keep on the shelf! Good luck with the gamecube. If you still aren't ready to switch, maybe just let him pic out a few new games. This is sure to renew his interest in Gamecube! AS it is hard to find gamecube games in stores new, definately look on ebay.com for new and slightly used (which are great buys and I've never had a bad experience) gamecube games. Barnyard is a super cute one!
Please leave me a great rating if you found my reply helpful. Thank you! :)
