I am noticing that the wii is not that cheap once you start buying stuff for it.
Basically I want two controllers for the wii and virtual consoles. I also wanted component cables. I started adding it up and found it is not that much cheaper then the Xbox 360.
wii remote $44.99
component cable $35.99
2 X gamecube controllers $48.00
game cube memory card $20
* comes with 1 free game (wii sports)
-do not need extra SD card for now but might later on.
Xbox 360 Pro $499.99
extra controller $49.99
-Do not need to buy old xbox controllers.
-wont have to worry about extra SD cards later
-comes with component cables
* comes with 4 free games at Futureshop (Ghost Recon, Xbox Live Arcade and Far cry, Ridge Racer 6
Don't get me wrong I love the Wii system but if your thinking it is a cheap alternative think again.
