    every place i went seemed to get between 10-15 copies
    the game itself isnt that great fun.. but not great out of the 9 games on it the only fun ones are the duck hunt preview one... billards,table tennis and thats about it the others are just decent mini games

    I'm just thrilled that I got the Wiimote w/ it. $50 for the remote and 9 mini games isn't a bad deal. I reserved my copy over a month ago.

    this game could explain the shortage of wiimotes in the first place... nintendos little way of tossing another one of there titles in the mix.. but im glad it uses play with the Mii im guessing when the online setup is up and going that the Mii is going to be a huge part in the games we play online...

    ya wasnt super impressed with it.. a few games are good even then you need a 2nd player to really enjoy it.. but for the wiimote and 10 bucks it was worth it..

    mine is coming in the mail. is everyone assuming these are going to be relatively difficult to locate considering the low price for two items and most stores reaching their allocation limit??

    Picked up a copy last night. The games are fun, be more fun if you and a friend are drunk playing it. The game is worth $15 at best if it didn't come with a remote it would have been a waste of money.

    Tell me about it, stop giving Nintendo money it doesn't deserve people. Unless of course you're in need of a wiimote!

    Give them money for making good games, not tech demos for softcorers.

    umm I wish they made more deals like this a Wii rmeote and a game for50 bucks, your only paying 10 buck for nine games and your telling me it sucks???
    you get what you pay for 9 small game with a Wii remote, I wish they would make another deal like this.
    Also to let you guys know Wii Play is the most brought game for the Wii.

    i think its just because wiimotes are hard to find and there's an abundance of Wii Play's... so everyone would rather just get the Wii Play since its easier to get. my local target has 10 boxes with about 25 games each. Now everyone will be looking for nunchucks.

    For me, I already have 2 wiimotes/nunchucks, i don't see a need for a third or 4th set and my friend per-ordered this so i'll just play it at his house

    its just a basic operation game get you more into the motion play.. besides bumping up the Mii more and the free wiimote its not anything great but im guessing alot of the stuff that does come out from nintendo is going to be Mii based now.. this is probably just to feel out how far they can take each concept for Mii games... sports and play give you an idea of what they are starting with...

    its gonna end up like sims online everyone with there Mii meeting up to play online games.. this is the first real launch for online gaming for nintendo and it is intended for people not use to online game play. so they are going to keep alot of things basic and work its way up... no schedualing lan partys no calling your friends up and getting them to get online... just a central meeting place for basic online game play nice and easy just meet and play with random people...

    it may seem stupid and retarted to everyone who is use to playing everyday... but for your parents and grandparents who are starting to play video games again because ever sence N64 its gotten too complicated to keep up..lol
    The wii is selling like crazy and its because people are not intimidated by the system like they have been in the past... so it sucks for the everyday gamer but for the new commer this kinda game and this kinda setup is like "gamming for dummies" and if they like it nintendo likes it.. they already know your gonna buy it its everyone else they want to pick it up too
