Both Oblivion and COD4 are available on another, cheaper, system that also has exclusives that people are dying to play. Also, I took your taste in games out of the equation and again I say- to somebody, those might be more than enough and, although VERY hard to find, at 250 bucks you can't pass up not owning a Wii. Also- I consider my mother a "casual" gamer. She plays Wii Sports, Cooking Mama and Mario Party. Zelda, Metroid Prime, Super Mario Galaxy- those are not "casual" games.
