    Just read on another forum the Wii package will cost $249 and will contain:

    Virtual Consoler
    3d Controller
    ALWAYS online (console is always online, even when OFF)
    Built in speaker on the controller

    Obviously this needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, especially with all the E3 rumours circulating.

    I dont understand the 'always online' feature? :confused:

    Like the idea of a built-in controller speaker.. would make for nice weapon reloading sound effects :cool:

    I Will be buying the Nintendo Wii its got me really excited and i hope its priced at $199.99 that wouldbe a killer price for Nintendo's Wii because i am not going over $250.00 for a new console the PS3 is priced way over my budget::tard: :D ;)

    Basically if the Nintendo Wii is $200, That means the 60 GB PS3 will be tripple the price and that is so crazy!

    not that we can actually do anything about it, but i think it would be great if it was bundled with a couple good games for the emulator, its been too long since a system actually came with something playable out of the box

    also i think either price would be fine(though hoping for the $200), especially since both are less than the PS2's debut price

    That is not a bad price at all when you think about what the 360 is going for and what the PS3 is going to go for.

    I would definitely get the Wii, not only 'cause of the price but the amazing features it has over the PS3 or Xbox 360... I mean, Nintendo pretty much owned them by a longshot.

    Virtual Controller? I think you mean Virtual Console, the Wii's retro game download service. Although there is a controller for the old games (and Gamecube games), but I don't know what it's called yet.

    The Wii Remote? The only wireless one I can think of is the Wiimote. The other is the classic controller for the Virtual console

    The nunchaku will probably come with the Wiimote.

    the virtual console controller will plug into the bottom of the wireless wii-mote, which will lay on the table or clip to the back of the virtual console controller.

    I might just buy a router and sell/ give away my usb port.
    I will need a router to play my games online so I don't take up the computer's internet.
    I will be owning other consoles and all having them online.
    I can't disconnect my internet from my computer to play games online.
