    I just learned what Wii-Play was, I guess I was supposed to ask for it at the counter when I purchased my 3 extra controllers, Wii, and 3 games huh? I wonder if I can call Toys-R-Us, bring my receipt, and still get a copy...

    ^^ heh, that may be.
    I've pre-ordered Wii Play because it comes with an extra Wii-mote
    £29.99 for a Wii-mote
    £32.99 for a game + a Wii-mote, seems like a good deal to me :)

    I have pre-ordered Wii-Play too. Same price as above. And as a bonus, all pre-ordered Wii-Plays get a free nunchuk. I thought this was standard (Wii-Mote and Nunhuck) but I've been told otherwise. Even if it is standard, woo :D

    Pre-ordered at a local "Game" shop. I even asked the guy twice if it meant both the wii-mote and nunchuk. I have it in writing. He can't take it back now!

    Anyway, it' was in the big book of things to be released. Might be local but it didn't seem like it.

    I'll be buying it, but mainly as a controller with a extra game, not the other way round.

    Ahh...no it was a serious question. I'm sure many people got far more in the way of "extras" than I did, I mostly wanted to point out that I had already purchased 3 controllers. I honestly did not know it wasn't out yet, and am now a bit annoyed I already have my 4 controllers, I don't want to have to buy a fifth controller just to get Wii-Play.


    Thanks to the others who actually posted helpful information though. Like Ocdan I looked it up and can't really find anything at all on Wii Play; I did find a few "user reviews" saying things like "Oh man, I'm loving the ping pong!", so I thought it was out.

    Sorry to bother you with my naivety...

    EDIT
    ---------------
    Yea, I just looked through the "How much did you spend..." thread, I'm definitely not a "big shot" with my 500 dollar purchase.

    For those that dont know and havn't purchased games yet but intend to very shortly, Toys R Us is having a special (ends 25th I believe) where if you buy 3 games from a list you get 30 dollars off your total. Off-hand I remember

    Trauma Center
    Monkey Ball
    Tony Hawk Downhill Jam
    CoD 3
    Marvel Ultimate Alliance
    Avatar
    Metal Slug

    We got Monkey Ball/Trauma Center/Downhill Jam...Originally we were going to get the Rayman game, but decided to save the 30 instead...I'll pick that up when I can afford a couple more nunchucks to go with it :-D (we only have 2)

    Wii Play minigames WRU?! - Joystiq

    Quoted:

    Wii Play is the name of the free pack-in collection that Japan, Europe, and Australia are going to be getting when they drop some local currency on an additional Wiimote. The Wii Play minigames include Table Tennis, Laser Hockey, Fishing, Find Mii, Pose Mii, Shooting, Pool, Charge!, and Tanks.

    Well, North American gamers, you'll be troubled to hear there continues to be no release date for a North American release of Wii Play. Hoping for a last minute retail inclusion? We received a retail Wii and Wiimote which were, despite our most fervent wishes to the contrary, sans Wii Play.

    Doesn't look good anytime soon :(

    Oddly enough I don't think ABC's a real troll around here. Most of his posts are actually good, opinionated yet biased posts. Most of the time he plays devils advocate when people get too fan-boy in the Wii side (yes, I think the Wii is the best of the new 3, but that said the Xbox 360 is an amazing console, and the PS3 is well....the Xbox is nice :-D). Its nice to have someone around to keep things in the facts and away from "XBOX IS FOR SISSYSZOMFG!!!!"

    At the same time though, he does seem quite quick to make negative conclusions about people based on a short post. I would have elaborated more in my O.P., but I was in a hurry out the door to take my little sister for her drivers test. For those interested, she passed, 3rd time was the charm I guess...

    <---- rolls eyes at sister

    Alot of 3's being thrown around my house the past few days :-D

    Really? Is this Toys R Us deal only for the States or for all of North America?
