    Also, if I need games, what is good? I have Gamefly and should have two games on the way (the Zelda game and the new Mario game) and should arrive around the same time Amazon ships my Wii.
    your welcome. and "Hidden things" There are no hidden things when you buy a console. if you mean ONLINE then yes you will need to connect your wii to your router (wirelessly or with an ethernet controller) and yes games and dvds cost money. . .

    The internet channel is great.
    Maybe a wireless router, if you need it.

    Games:
    Super Mario Galaxy
    Zelda Twilight Princess
    Metroid Prime 3
    Guitar Hero 3
    Medal of Honor Heroes 2 (if you have internet access)

    Some things that come to mind:
    • Rechargeable NiMH AA batteries, and a good charger: http://www.thomas-distributing.com/
    • Silicone remote/nunchuk covers to make them easier to hold (and different colors make it easy to tell them apart)
    • S-Video or component cables for a better-quality if your TV system supports it (Wii only comes with composite cables)
    • Carying case if you think you might like to take your gear to other peoples' houses
    • Extra remotes so you can have 4 total (the max) for party games like Wii Sports, Mario Party, etc. You only really need 2 nunchuks though for current party games (this could change)
    • SD card for backing up your save games and Virtual Console downloads (any brand will do, 2GB max though, don't get SDHC)
    • A Wii points card so you can download the internet channel (500 points, $5) and a few VC games
    • Classic controller if you think you'll be playing a lot of VC games
    • USB LAN adapter if you want to avoid having to set up wireless.
    • Wireless router/access-point if you want do go wireless and don't already have one

    and with the original xbox you had to buy a remote in order to play dvds at all. Come to think of it, does the wii play dvds? Other than that, thanks all for the helpful posts.

    Seen them, used them, hate them. I'll keep my colorful thin ones, even though they're hard to get on and off.
