    What You Get For $250...

    A lot of people are complaining that $250 is a lot of money for the Wii claiming it's just a souped up GameCube with a new controller. Lets take a look at what you get.

    $250 Bundle =
    $40 game (approximate price)
    $60 controller setup
    $70 wireless out of the box (remember, wireless isn't standard on any 360's or the PS3 core. Going off of a 360 model, a 802.11abg is $100, so I'm estimating a 802.11bg MSRP around $70. Anyone complaining 360 is only $50 more should remember this has wireless built in)
    $80 console

    After you subtract the accessories you get and the premium piece of hardware (the wireless is really the only thing premium when you look at other game systems), the system is only $80! That's extremely cheap. Look at 360 core and the system itself is $260, or when bought in the premium pack it's about $220. I don't even want to get into the PS3...

    I found this in a site, so its not made by me...

    Another nice feature the Wii has that the Xbox 360 doesn't have at all as far as I know, is bluetooth. Bluetooth is how the Wiimote connects wirelessly with the Wii. However, it can also be used with wireless bluetooth headsets (which could be used for online voice chat), keyboards and mice, and cell phones can even transfer files using bluetooth.

    I didn't even think of that! I knew that there was talk of a headset, I knew that the controllers used bluetooth, and I knew that bluetooth headsets were extremely common, but I never put all the information together. That's good thinking, Nate!
    ... but what do I know?...

    For what registerednerd and NTGreat said, I can just say wii is the best complement not only for video games, for all the stuff of the new technology.

    You lot of have got it good, considering the UK will be getting the Wii for 170 = $320. I won't even bother talk about the cost of games and controllers.
