    I was actually going to buy points off Amazon.com to make them cheaper, but apparently the points cards are region locked.

    Who do we scream at though??
    Surely with this age of communication they can't blank this out???
    This discussion has already proved that people will talk and disclose the truth, I guess if we say to much they'll delete the discussion???
    Oh how we love diplomacy :-)

    To be fair, it probably balances itself out against the cheap price of the console and games. I mean, Xbox 360 games are expensive and you need to pay a subscription for Xbox Live, while the PS3 is costly and expect the games to be immensely expensive.

    I don't mind paying 15 for another remote to play classic games, whereas I would mind paying 400 for a PS3 of shelling out a monthly subscription fee to Microsoft.

    Good Point and well worth mentioning.
    But my rant is over the levels we pay in the UK for all gaming consoles and merchandise compared to both Europe, Japan and the states.
    I'm also frustrated as I brought a second nunchuck controller from the states on ebay, well before Xmas and it still hasn't arrived.
    I'm now looking for a Classic Controller and don't know where to look for the best pricing?

    We get ripped off for everything here in Britain.

    As for the classic controller, the cheapest I have found it is on HMV, for 11.99. But they have a six week waiting list, and I've had an order with them for two weeks and there has been no update as to what is happening. So, impatiently, I went out and bought one from Woolworths for 15 today.

    Im not so arsed about wii points right now as most of the VC is shit at the moment anyway. Ill only be picking up mario kart really and maybe some of the marios.

    Anyway if you want to complain go speak to Gordon Brown as its taxes that whack so much on. Also I hope in the first post you added on US taxes, as they arent in the retail price.

    i had some wii points as an xmas present. these were from game 14.99. I saw in gamestation that they were 19.99, and in woolworths they were 13.99.

    i havent been able to get a classic controller yet, so havent loaded the points on. i was offered a gamecube one in game, however, they just dont have the appeal of the wii classic.

    This is the worst site seen yet:

    http://www.consolesandgadgets.co.uk/...=review_submit

    33.98 for 2000 points.

    What a bunch of idiots, look at their feedback for the publics opinion on them.

    I've sent them an email to ask if they live on planet earth, else I hope they get what they deserve.
