Hi - wasn't going to bother with the Wii (am a PS fan myself) but have been bought over by the propoganda and fantastic adverts!!!

Have checked a few stores and know I can pick one up before Christmas. However, I have a few questions and was after advice please: -

- Should I buy instore or are they any decent deals online?
- What actually comes with the basic package (do I get 2 controllers)?
- what games will be worth getting so all the family can play on Christmas Day?

All your feedback would be appreciated.

Ta. :santa:

boxing i think :thinking:

no idea to be honest but i got 1 hahaha
#8
the numchuck is needed for the boxing only, on wii sports, but other games you will need it, like raymans rabbits or call of duty.

its worth getting one. cos the best thing about the Wii is the multiplayer.

also worth getting an SD card for it too, the photo channel on the Wii is great.

its great if you can connect it upto a wireless router, download all classic games from the nes, snes megadrive etc.
#9
Can it be hardwired? I don't like wireless, and my pc is hardwired to the 'net, so how would i get online with a wii?
#10
therse an adaptor avaliable some where i have seen it on the wii USA site tho
#11
yeah a Wii adaptor, i think it is for a ethernet cable.

seen this, but not seen any on any UK websites or in any shops.

i used to have everything hooked up by ethernet cables, but bought a wireless router from pcworld for £35 and it worked a treat. dead easy to set up nadd the wii connected straight away and so did the PSP. i thought it would be hard and loads of messin around with setting etc, but soo easy.
#12
Thanks guys :)
PC work does not bother me, i'm quite a geek on the quiet, just don't want a wireless network. No reason specifically, just don't
#13
the Wii internet browser is downloadable now, its a free trail version at the moment. and i think it will cost 500 points in the future.

but i just had it on, and worked great, had youtube playing. works really well.
#14

#15
Amazon have Wii's in stock for next day delivery!!!

Awesome!
#16
please post a link as i cannot find them

just amazon sellers selling theres for £300+++
#17
They sold out and I got one of the last ones but now Gamestation phoned and I got one there too which I will pick up at 3pm today, I tried to sell the second one to my friends but they can't afford it.

I hate to become an Ebay seller but that's the only way I can get rid of it.

I'm already a nintendo vip and I've got like 1500 points on there, how do you convert them into wii points though ?

I'd preferably not spend them on useless phone wallpapers if I can avoid it. I think I might consider actually going wireless since nintendo are really dragging their heels on the ethernet adaptor, I'm sure they're taking backhanders from netgear.

#20
You got an official SD card or a 3rd party (i.e. Kingston?)
#21
I'm using a 3rd Party SD Card, and it works fine. It's a 2gb kingston
#22
Yea, thought so.

I'm going to get a 4GB one, should last me long enough
