    Just Ordered a Wii.. couple ??s

    So I bought a Wii that comes with Wii sports, nunchuk and remote. Also ordered another remote and nunchuk as well as one classic controller, Madden NFL 09 and Need for Speed. Ordered the system so me and my gf can have something fun to do and we plan to get the wii fit so we can look good at the beach this summer I ordered it from Gamestop, the local store said they might not get them for a month but Gamestop had them in stock online.

    Few questions:
    Do I need to get a memory card?
    Does the Wii come with remote chargers or do I need to buy one?
    How many Wii points should I buy to start off with to download a few old games?
    What else should I get for the Wii?

    No you don't need a memory card for Wii games, everything saves to the memory it has internally. If you wish to play and save GameCube games then you will need a GameCube memory card.

    Does the Wii come with remote chargers or do I need to buy one?
    The Wii doesn't come with remote chargers and they're not really a necessity for single player use. But if you feel buying batteries for two sets of controllers to be a hassle invest in a charging kit which can be found anywhere games are sold.

    How many Wii points should I buy to start off with to download a few old games?
    Each points card you buy has 2000 points and that runs you $20.00 bucks each card. Virtual Console titles range in points with Nes games worth the lowest (500) and N64 being the highest (1000). Every other system is in between those two. If you need more you can always use your credit card and buy more points off the channel yourself. Each point is worth $.01.

    As for anything else, you seem to have everything you need to play. I suggest playing around a bit and see if you feel like you need anything else. Usually all you need to buy more of is new games to play once your tired of those ones.

    Enjoy

    please note, not all places sell 2000pt cards for $20, here in canada i have seen them from $20 (toys r us) to 24.99 (Future shop, EB games, Source) up to 27.99 (Best Buy). Saying that 1pt = 0.01c is innacurate, it doesnt relate direclty to currency, it just so happens to be similarly marketed as such

    look for the game "wiiplay", it's a game and remote for about $10 more than just buying a remote. the wiiplay games get old quick, but is good at times when you have company, wiiplay's Tank Game has lots of game play, though.

    $25 set of 4 or 8 engergizer rechargeables that come with the charger pays for itself quickly

    Also, on the Wii Shopping Channel, you can buy points directly in there in smaller increments than the point cards in stores (1000 points versus 2000 points).

    if you have a wireless AP or wireless router in your house then you're set.

    if you have a wired router then you need to buy nintendo's USB ethernet adapter.

    They usually make the direct exchange in USD, and everything else goes from there.
