    I'll agree with Frummage and Phillepino. The Wii isn't over-priced and neither are (most) it's accessories. Compare it to it's closest possible competition.
    With much love, 261311.

    "I put a PS3 disc in it and the Wii wouldn't read it. WTF is this world coming to? If I buy a video game console, it better take and kind of media I want. Even if I were to dust off some of my vinyl LPs, the bastard better work."

    Btnjoe, I guess you are in the uk like me. I get my games from game and gamestation but buy pre owned ones. You can get brand new played once games for 10 to 15 quid cheeper. Madness. (check each copy before you buy to make sure it has the nintendo club voucher!)

    Have you ever thought that the technology inside all the aspects in the Wii is quite expensive to make?

    actually they make a profit off wii sales... not huge amounts but a profit still... but honestly its bad buisness to make something your gonna loose money on... even if you make it up later on with game sales...

    Yeap! I use to play all the sega mega drive games on our old laptop, cus i downloaded an emulator, and i got 2 control pad's for 5quid each!
    I think either the price of the down loadable games should be cheaper or the points cards should be.

    Also about the price thing, retailer's are just making you buy bigger packages so the RETAILER'S can get more out of you, and Microsoft, now know's there graphics count for crap, thats why they're now competing on price.

    i wouldn't say the Wii is a rip off, considering the price is lower than other consoles. an like Arch0n said, xbox 360 or ps3 controllers are at least $50, generally more though.
    But if you look at what technology you get in the console itself, the Wii is the worst deal of the 3. Sony and Microsoft are both losing money per console, every Wii sold generates a profit for Nintendo though. So if you look at it that way the Wii isn't as good of a deal as the PS3 or 360.

    Really an xbox 360 is cheaper? Maybe if they let me use my collection of firewire drives on it. Really though do some research. The Wii actually has the fastest ram in a console right now. Its a form of Sram which is very expensive. Yes the GC had a little but the Wii has way more and thing you have the auto loading tray, Wifi is built in... SD ports... and this is a chip at a higher clock with even more functions embedded this time.

    Now we can talk about the controller which has some really sweet tech in it also. You have a IR camera and accelerometers and rumble all built on blue tooth then you have that 3 dollar speaker in it and other mysterious chips. Also get your self a recharger man.

    If you want a controller solution try going with the controller converters. Yes you can take really SNES controllers and convert them to game cube controllers. I'm not sure if this is wireless yet but it works! I'm looking for one to use with a N64 controller to play sin&punishment right now.

    Really though if you think nintendo is ripping you off then maybe you should sell it for twice the price. I would not call that a rip off, would you? You can't do that with an xbox 360 right now.

    Hey but it's cool it's your opinion but take the HD plunge and get ready to feel used if your funds come up short.
