    Think the Wiimote + Nunchuck are a bit.. Pricey?

    Yeah. $60 for the wiimote + nunchuck set.

    That's a difference from the $20 I'm used to spending on a new Gamecube controller!

    I wonder why it's THAT much more. I know it would be more because of the speaker and the wirelessness... But, three times more?


    There might be something I'm not seeing.

    Well, it has a built-in gyroscope that senses movement and a pinpoint accurate pointer, so maybe that's why. I think they should have or should in the future release a wiimote with a charging pack, rather than having two AA batteries. I wonder if they will make a nunchuk someday that will have a battery pack that can be used when the wiimote's batteries expire?

    Also, to compare, both the Xbox 360 and PS3's controllers are $50 retail, and with tax that's about $55, so the wiimote is pretty competitive; with the nunchuk it costs only about $5 more and neither the Xbox 360's nor the PS3's controllers feature all the abilities the wiimote and nunchuk do. And just look at what it costs for a gaming keyboard and mouse; like $60 just for some wired mice and around the same for a keyboard.

    I would have liked to see them at $50 for the set, but honestly, $10 more than Ps3's and 360's controllers isn't bad at all. And considering the superior technology in it, $10 difference isn't bad at all.

    It is still $60....and $60 is kind of a lot of money for an extra controller.

    Whats wrong with having rechargable batterys? When they die you put a new set in and recharge the old ones. You never have to leave your controller charging over night.
    This means you're: A Smart Gamer

    What does it mean?

    You have a good grip on the gaming world. you know what games you enjoy, you remain somewhat even in a debate through the consoles. undoubtably a "Super Fanboy" has called you a fanboy when you are not one but rather just stating facts. you are invalueable in a discussion on consoles.

    work for a living, and nothing is too expensive. 360's wireless are 60, ps3 originally claimed a 100$ tag on its controllers, make your shitty friends buy or bring theirs over.
