    I'm new here, yes, and I just had a question that I havent been able to find the answer to here or on google, etc. I am asking for the Wii for Christmas, and in order to get the ultimate experience, I asked for 3 extra controllers, and 3 extra Nunchuk add-ons, so I can have 4 people play at the same time. Would I be better off just asking for 4 Classic Controllers, so we can all engage in classic gameplay and GameCube games? I do own a GameCube so I have four of those controllers already. I'm just waaaay confused about the controller situation. Will one of the new crazy remote controllers be enough? HELP!

    Nah man I think getting four wiimotes and four nunchucks is a good idea. I'm not gunna get a classic controller at all. You can't even use the classic controllers on the gamecube, only gamecube controllers and when it comes to the "virtual console" games, just use the gamecube controllers then too. You got a good plan there. And Welcome

    Yea, that sounds like a great plan. But you know, 3 remotes and 3 Nunchuk add-ons is a lot of money... a total of $180 and at least $190 with taxes. Good luck!

    Getting 4-wiimotes would be priority. Not alot of games right now use the nun-chuck. Then add the nun-chucks on later as needed. If you have gamecube controllers you are set for both gamecube and VC games. I plan on just getting one classic controller just for the fun of it; there might be a future time I get more of these but only if game developers make some games specifically for it.

    You really do need to get two wiimotes when you buy your Wii. . .Wii Sports is way funner with 2 people.

    Yea, I totally agree. I played the Wii at my friends house. He had 2 remotes but only 1 Nunchuk. I was really looking forward to boxing with 2 player but we could only take turns doing 1 player.

    Well, as you can plug the GameCube controllers on the wii, and play Gamecube games, you may go and buy those 3 wiimotes and nunchuck, and if you wanna play gamecube games in a 4 player mode, as SSBM, then the best thing is buying the 3 wiimotes + 3 nunchucks and stay with the GC games

    You should get 4 wii-motes and nunchuks over a period of time. Getting them all at once will burn a hole through you (or your parent's) wallets.

    Wait I thought a Wii remote by itself is 40 bucks and the nunchuks are 30 so thats like 210 without tax??? Which is BS nintendo screwed us with remotes its so gay how much they cost plus you need batterys. If the Classic Remote can be sell for 20 bucks the nunchuks should be 20 too since all it is 3 buttons and a joystick.

    Wiimotes are 40, and Nunchucks are 20.

    That's 60 bucks.

    Games are 50 bucks.


    When you look at the competition, who's controllers are 50 bucks, and games 60, it kind tilts into the Wii's favor.

    You'll be buying 3 wiimotes tops.
    But if you had an Xbox 360 or a PS3, I can be pretty sure you'll buy more than three games.

    Lemme do some math for ya.



    3 Wii controller combos = $180

    3 Xbox 360/PS3 controllers = $150


    5 Wii games = $250

    5 Xbox 360/PS3 games = $300


    3 Wii controllers + 5 games = $430

    3 Xbox 306/PS3 controllers + 5 games = $450


    But that's if you're buying 5 games.
    And I have around 15-20 gamecube games.


    So when you think about it, Nintendo's really thinking about our pockets. How they can get the most out of us without draining us as much as the competition.



    - But don't take my word for it. It's just the way I see it.

    For me, I am going to get a t least game, until I get tired of it(not including Wii Sports). 1 Extra Wii-Mote and Nuchuck, because only 2 people in my family are huge game players. By the end of the year.

    1 Wii Games = $50
    1 PS3/360 Games = $60

    1 Combo Controllers~Wii = $60
    1 Controller~PS3/360 = $60

    1 Wii = $250
    1 PS3 = $400/500
    1 360 = $300/400

    Wii Set = $370
    PS3 Set = $520/620
    360 Set = $420/520 (Depends, because some prices went down).

    I think the Wii is set for me.
