I'm pretty pissed at this I must admit. Europe always tends to get the shitty end of the stick, and Wii is no exception. £180 is at least £30 more than I was planning to pay for the Wii, and I think it's lost some of it's affordability appeal. The added fact we pay SO much more and then have to wait THREE WEEKS for it is just the insult to injury.
I was planning on importing, but since it's not region free and stuff, I've had to end up pre-ordering it at Play.com. £220 for the console and Zelda. Meh. Ninty are lucky I'm a huge fanboy of theirs, otherwise I might've waited for a price drop.
