    I am thinking about purchasing a Nintendo Wii Console.
    I know most of you on here will say it is worth it, but i would like to know:

    - Is there any problems with the console (or acessories)?
    - Rating out of 10.
    - Cost of the console (and does it include any extras & where can i buy from).

    Thankyou. :D:D

    Pro's
    Motion sensor controls is fun
    virtual console for retro titles
    Zelda
    wireless NEC card built in

    Con's
    only comes with 1 remote + 1 nunchuk, so possible addons would be 2nd controller and nunchuk, component cable for 480p, classic controller for SNES games from virtual console, router or USB dongle if you don't have wireless router access point already
    Doesn't have HD (1080i/p)

    Overall its a great system... if you are they type of gamer who needs the latest and greatest in graphcis, you'll probably want Xbox or PS3... but if you want a good fun system (with adequate graphics) where the focus is more on gameplay, then the Wii is better suited.

    where do u live US? 250 for the console $40 per wiimote $20 for a nunchuck and 20 for a classic controller. games are 50, wii points card are 20 for 2000 points... a console is hard to get so call stores like walmart,target, best buy, eb, gamestop, ask them when they are going to get them,. Games u can pick up any of those places, most should have them. Controllers r a little hard to get.

    I think the console is worth it simply due to its innovative use of gyoscopic motion sensing technology and backward compatibility through the virtual console.

    Haven't had any problems with my console

    I would give it an 8.5/10. Despite the few stinkers, most of the games are fun. The innovation and simplicity is a key winning feature of the Wii. In addition, you can play many classic Nintendo and Sega Genesis games. The graphics could have been a little better though, it only runs on 480 progessive scan with component input, or good old SD at 480 interlaced with the composite input.

    I am not too happy with how much Nintendo is charging for these controllers, you have to spend $40 for the Wiimote, 20 for the Nunchuk, and another $20 for the classic controller. So for an extra set of controllers, you will have to spend at least $60, and if you want to play some of the Super NES or more complicated classic games, you will have to shell out another $20 for the classic controller, not to mention if you want to play those classics with a friend.

    It's small, solid, powerful, and loads of fun right out of the box. Unless you're really into HD output it's great. I'm catching up on the GameCube games since I didn't have one before. They are fun too and cheap to buy.
