    The day after launch... how much money have you spent on Wii so far?

    I just realized I've already spent a little over $620. :nono:
    (console, remote, nunchuck, classic controller,
    5 games, 1 guide, Wii points) :yikes: At least I used
    my gift cards to cover 85% of that. :)

    Just imagine... $620 is the cost of the barebones PS3
    console! :)

    I was about to make the same comment... $30 for a guide?

    Zelda guide is like $15... but if you bought two games
    at BestBuy, the Zelda guide is free. (assuming that
    BestBuy has the guide in-stock, of course)

    :)

    Oh... wait a minute... perhaps he bought two identical
    Zelda guides, just in case he wants to read it a second
    time? :D

    From this thread:
    SlickDeals.net Forums - Kingston 2GB Secure Digital Memory Card $15 After $5 Rebate

    You purchase the card here:
    Buy.com - Kingston 2GB Secure Digital Card (SD) - SD/2GBKR
    (Add to cart and checkout)

    It shows up as $25 (after $5 mail in rebate), once it's added to your cart, theres an option to use Google Checkout which will knock off another $10, making it $20 before mail in rebate (if you use the free shipping option), or $15 afterward.

    Approx $510 canadian (give or take a few bucks, i don't spend change)
    $360 for the system (paid somebody a bit on top of the purchase to sell me theirs on Launch Day, he had 2 I think), $70approx after tax for the game (Marvel: Ultimate Alliance), $80 after tax for a wii-mote and a 2000 points card. Looking to spend $100 today on a zelda and another nunchuck, and I'll shell out for a couple classic controllers if i can find 'em.

    lol, i agree.
    Plus, why buy a guide to a game that u just bought? Maybe u wont need a guide. Plus, the internet has plenty of FAQs for those that need help.
