    Milking it as usual!!

    so i bought the Wii for the Wiikid @ christmas and decided that i would also buy a second Remote.

    Dont get me wrong its a kool toy but as a parents point of view..

    why the bloomin eck did they not do the nunchuck and the remote as a pair.

    we now have to wait for the shops to open again before we can go and buy the second nunchuck.

    These manufacturers really know how to drag every last penny out of people..

    also on a second note we were looking at the Wii Credits...

    1000 credits is 6.99
    3000 credits is 21.00
    5000 credits is 35.00

    i see this as no incentive for people to buy more as there are no discounts involved for bulk buying...

    Come on nintendo dont forget to look after the people that are lining your pockets !!!!

    haha this is going to be an interesting ride
    i can be the grumpy parent

    If they included the nunchuck in with the Wiimote, the price would only go up to be the same as if you bought them seperatly. So it doesn't matter.

    i dont have a problem with that.. im not dumb enough to think it would be free.

    maybe a small reduction for buying the 2 together to increase possible sales.

    and as i amongst many parents were dumb enough to think we had bought everything we needed for that dream christmas present so we could all have fun on christmas day getting battered by the square eyed kid!!

    But think about the suffering we would take in if they did that! That would mean we pay less, right? So less money goes to Nintendo. What happens when Nintendo doesn't get money? They go broke! What happens when Nintendo go broke? Thousands of people commit suicide, maybe your son for instance. With Nintendo broke the world would be destroyed.

    For the sake of humanity, I think an extra $5-10 dollars might be well spent.

    bah as if they are not making enough money allready........

    i would imagine the markup is only @ appx 500% on the manufacturing costs.

    but then again i am not in the world where suicide and nintendo go in the same sentence...

    Once the production numbers increase I would imagine complete controller packages will be available. For now I see it as a simple matter of getting whatever they can out on the shelves as fast as they can. With even the Wiimotes and Nunchuks selling out in certain places you can't really blame them.

    1000 credits is 6.99
    3000 credits is 21.00
    5000 credits is 35.00

    On the topic of credits, I never got that, its cheaper to buy 1000 at a time, when it should be marginally cheaper to buy in bulk.

    Yeah. The fact that 5x1000 credits is cheaper than 1x5000 is beyond me.

    WTF Nintendo?

    point cards are sold at retail stores for parents/gradparents/kids without credit cards to buy.

    get your points off the online store through your wii and the prices make more sense.
    and no tax!
