Detailed review
I used to love Nintendo (who didn't?), but the Wii is Wiik. Sure, things like Wii sports/games are fun for a little while and the Lego franchise games are good, but they all get very old very quickly. The Wii is a niche item that maybe you should have around for when little kids and/or old people are going to be hanging out and you'd rather engage them with something other than cards and conversation. It's also good for those pre-/post-drinking nights with friends when concentration isn't necessary. However, when you want to play a serious game and enjoy your surround system, get the PS3. Once you do, you'll laugh at yourself for even having a Wii.
