    A rip off!!!!

    I have now finally decided that Nintendo are ripping us off. A Wii on its own costs 180 pounds, then another 30 for a second Wii-mote, 20 for Classic controller, Games averaging 50 each, it goes on...... Could have got a 360pro with 5 games and a steering wheel for 250. I know I will probably offend 1 or 2 of you out there, and I sincerely apologise for this, but I feel I have a valid point

    WII GAMES:-
    Wii Sports (obviously!)
    Super Mario Galaxy
    Mario and Sonic at the Olympics
    The Godfather. Blackhand Edition

    Well it can be quite costly, but one thing you don't need to buy if you have a Gamecube controller already, is the classic controller. Also, some games you can get for good prices, like Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition for $30 bucks..you just have to look around.

    You make a very INVALID point.

    The Wii is very nicely priced.

    As for the controller, 30 is too cheap in my opinion. Do you have any idea what is in a Wiimote?

    I think the nunchuck is over priced xD

    Also the wii points should've been cheaper.

    Almost everyone buys extra wiimotes for their consoles, they'd be crazy to sell them cheap when their in such high demand.

    Well, you're lucky that you're in England. The Wii goes for 250 dollars over here and 70 for the nunchuck wiimote combo. Games go for 50 and that is why I want to mod my Wii. Games and stuff do come pricey but literally, what other system has motion sensor. It's the cheapest system in the generation out
    there.

    I bought the Wii for like 250 plus tax and every penny was worth it.


    Currently Own
    Wii: Console, 1 WiiMote, 1 Nunchuck, Wii Sports, and LODTP.
    DS: Handheld, 1 MarioKartDS, 1 Stylus.

    In Search For
    R4 Chip or Cyclos DS

    It is far more advanced that any other game controller. It should be closer to 50 in all fairness
