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. **Canadian prices** Wii ======= console $279 wii remote $44.99 nunchuck $24.99 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. Total $452.97 Xbox 360 ======== 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 Total $549.98 Don't get me wrong I love the Wii system but if your thinking it is a cheap alternative think again.
