The thing is, if you add up all the games, controllers, the console, and the GC stuff I've bought for my wii, you get:Originally Posted by gpoleweski
Wii - $250
Wiiplay - $50
Wiimotes x 2 - $80
Nunchuck x 3 - $60
2 Wii games - $100
1GB SD card - $18 (on sale @ bestbuy)
2 GC games - $60
GC memory card - $10
2 GC controllers - $30 (Shark branded cheap stuff)
This adds up to $658 + TX 8% tax = $711
The point is, I don't want to have to sell my Wii and go out and buy a new one. We have all sunk major money and time into our investment and it'd be insulting if they just left us in the dust.
I feel the same way about my 360 and the new 360 Elite. The problem is, nintendo has a habit of completely dropping their old product when coming out with an "upgrade" version. You can see this in the GB-SP and the DS-Lite. They just totally dropped their old version. I currently have a 1st gen DS and can't get any accessories for it anymore...
