    Why the hell are 'Motes so pricy?

    I was looking at the prices and they are awful, I mean you do not even get a nunchuka with one.

    I mean I will pay it as I have no choice but I was shocked to see the price larger than a price of a game for the 'mote and 'chuck.

    I know what you mean. I thought maybe that the Wii-mote may cost 20 and a Nunchuck would be 10, I was quite surprised to see the Wii-mote was actually 30 and the Nunchuck was 15

    1) the system is brand new

    2) there are no third party ones out yet to make the prices drop

    3) the wiimote is more complicated than prior controllers.

    Pretty obvious why no?

    Well, I am sure they knew that they had to make some good money somewhere, so why not the controllers? Also, there not games, so you know you only have to buy 4.

    Well.. really when you think about it they aren't compared to other consoles. The Wiimote is MUCH MORE advanced than regular controllers. The XBox 360's are $50 wireless. The wiimote and nunchuck have motion sensors. It's a lot more advanced, so really they aren't. Atleast compared to other consoles.
