    Are they really $NZ100 in New Zealand? I thought they were $NZ120.
    Its almost worth buying Wiimotes from New Zealand and paying for the shipping back to Australia. At the current exchange rate ($NZ1.13 = $AU1) its almost a 15% saving.

    How much is the actual console in New Zealand is it $400?
    And what about games, are they $100?
    If they are I seriously might start to import my gear.

    If games are $NZ100 than (at the moment) they are $AU88.50. That means if I can buy more than one item (games or controllers) and combine the shipping, I can make quite a saving. COOL!

    Console $500 = 185 [We payed 180]
    Games $100 = 37 [We pay 40]

    So it's not at all bad compared to UK
