Should I get a Wii just for this game?

I own a PS3 and I need something to tide me over until Ni No Kuni gets here next year. Been replaying Persona 3 FES just to get my JRPG fix but this game has my mouth watering and I'm seriously considering picking up a used Wii just for this game. I know the Last Story is coming soon, and it looks...okay, but certainly not worth getting a Wii for. Is Xenoblade Chronicles the only game worth getting a Wii for, and it is it really worth it just for one game?

Well Xenoblade Chronicles is a really good game, however I'd advise against buying a system just for one game alone. Did you consider several other Wii games? There are plenty of other games you can consider for the Wii. Here's a few I recommend:

-Sin and Punishment: Star Successor
-Mario Galaxy (either 1 or 2)
-Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus
-Tatsunoko vs. Capcom

If you do consider Xenoblade make sure you get the Wii Classic Controller Pro.

That's pretty much all I can say. Up to you really.

You should definitely get a Wii for this game! But only a cheap second hand one. I got a second hand Wii for 30 euros after trading in some old ps3 games, and boy was it worth it. You like rpgs right? You like final fantasy? Then get this. My file is about 90% complete, finished the story, and about 180 hours long. I've enjoyed every minute of it- and I only play long games if there fun, not boring like skyrim. Oh, I'd also recommend the last story, even though its only about 35 hours long, it's still awesome. Also, try the Zelda games.

Short answer: YES. I'm 97 hours into this game and still not finished. It's absolutely stunning from top to bottom, and very possibly my favorite game on the Wii so far.

However, once you DO own a Wii, there are lots of other fantastic reasons to have it. Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Zelda (Twilight Princess and especially Skyward Sword, my favorite Zelda game since the N64!), Donkey Kong Country Returns, Metroid Prime Trilogy, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, No More Heroes, Dead Space: Extraction, and many many more... not to mention the most awesome downloadable game library of any current-gen system, thanks to the amazing Virtual Console. The Wii is an all-around wonderful game system that constantly gets dissed because of its low horsepower. Give it a chance!

If there's any game worth getting a Wii for, it's this one.
