for just a console it is, but these are packages with games and accessories
#3
Seriously they must think we have MUG printed on our spams.

All most people want is the damn console with wii Sports, a complete rip off.

Voting cold, nothing against the poster, just the shops forcing deals on us, its appaling.
#4
There is still a shortage after a year of being on sale?! Nintendo have to be creating artificial shortages (just like they did with the NES) to keep interest and demand so high.
#5
If you go into the deal it includes sports, plus 4 other games and other bits.

Still a rip off though, why dont they just sell the wii on its own?!
#6
RRP's on all there games, you can get all these games for half these prices!

Rip-off Com-ebay-t prices!
#7
If the bundle was atleast discounted maybe.... but its a forced bundle at full rrp prices. I guess some people might go for this and sell the games off etc.... still unashamed sales boosting though :(
#8
sorry have to vote it cold, only because of the price. retailers like comet/amazon should be avoided they are just taking the **** because of the "shortage" theres no need to inflate the price to extremes & put games people don't want we just want the console with sports. :-(

These people are F****ng crooks - Trading Standards should be allowed to kneecap companies that behave like this. They know Nintendo are deliberately holding back stock of Wiis, and they are using this shortage to force their customers into buying massively over-priced bundles.

I've sent them an abusive email - that'll show them!

Doesnt make sense to do this though as those that cant get a Wii this christmas will get there kids either a Xbox360 or a PS3, unless they flood the market just before xmas.

I agree it makes no sense. surely sell more consoles = more money (along with selling more games + accessories). Selling less consoles does them no favours. They dont get a cut of the extra profit being made on ebay etc....
#13
What a total rip off!
#14
If you cannot get to the GameStation site due to over-loading from other punters looking for a Wii console, or ring/visit your local store, you could be ripped off even more by any of these Amazon "marketplace" sellers:

Prices range from £335.00 to £499.99.

O-U-C-H!!!!

I bought a Wii last week. I got mine from Amazon.de, Amazons german site. They are exactly the same as the UK version apart from you will need a shaver socket adapter to plug it in. Bought one for my Aunties daughter for Xmas. It was only £175 incl delivery and i wasn't charged any customs fees, plus DHL delivered it in 3 days. Not bad.

Best to register your details on the UK site first as you most likely won't be able to read german, so you can just log in and it will have your details.

p.s. all manuals are in english and the on screen instructions are as well.

Just to add it was the Wii sports console.

Here's why..

They've sold 8 million in the last 6 months and maximum manafacturing output is 1,4 million per month worldwide. Thas means there are only 400,000 unsold worldwide. Considering PAL is only 20% of the market and UK PAL at the most 20% of the PAL market there are only 16k units available max. Considering 4 units a minute sell on ebay alone it doesn't take a genius to work out that they are having trouble keeping up with demand. When supply only just outstrips demand the biggest markets get looked after first - US Japan and China. Manafacturing UK PAL machines is not high on their agenda at the moment. Dominating the US market is, because that us the heart of the games industry and they need US third party support to succeed in the long term.


I wish some of you would stop moaning and deal with it, you should have thought about it earlier.....:roll:

I bought a wii about 3 months ago and there were loads of them around so the fallacy that Nintendo are deliberately restricting supplied is just nonsense. How many have they sold worldwide so far (13 million at the end of October), so they've either not bothered upping the capacity of their plants for Christmas demand or they've got distribution problems, the notion that any company would shoot themselves in the foot by deliberately not creating the supply to match the demand is one created every year by the media to sell their product.

The real hold-up seems to be with the production of the silicon jackets for the Wiimote devices as Nintendo have finally bowed to public pressure (or is that legal pressure?) with respect to legal action resulting from over-excited activity & broken objects in the same environment whilst using the motion-based Remote devices. A £25-£30 Wiimote does not seem to be favoured embedded within a £1000-£2000 HD/Plasma TV, it seems. Personally I think it is an interesting feature that offers a central point of conversation during coffee mornings & after dinner parties. But each to their own, I guess.

Although Nintendo-branded and third-party silicon jackets are already available for additional cost, all future Wii console packs should include a jacket for free. [* Can anybody confirm this in their newly purchased box? *]

(Existing owners can apply to Nintendo using the UK online form, or the US online form, offering up to four jackets for free once the site is supplied with the serial number of the associated Wii console).

UK production of the silicon jackets was initially slow, but this is now being resolved, and delivery channels to the high street stores & online sites should now improve.


However, with many people thinking that there is a shortage of supply they are artificially creating this by rushing to buy more than their needs when stocks do come into the stores.

Advice to everyone else: Don't pay £350-£500 for a console & teach all those people a lesson... they'll have to reduce their expectations on price nearer to Christmas, as come New Year, a pre-owned console will be worth less than they paid for it.

#Wii wish you a merry Christmas...
