(Just be aware that 365games take money straight away)

Release date: July 11th

I haven't seen a single deal posted for this game so I thought I'd chip in with the best price I could find, making the sports a little over £5 each.

Compared to the original game on the Wii this game has added a few features including:

- Better graphics
- Better controls, by using the new Motionplus technology
- Online support, including online play and Miiverse

Next cheapest is £29.80 at VideoGameBox

Because its a remake? Plus its been reworked to be better and more accurate than the original through the use of Remote Plus and GamePad Gameplay. I'll pick it up at £20 though.

Good price (compared to other stores) and looks like a good game but shocking RRP by Nintendo for another remade game.

Yes once upon time Nintendo items were sold as premium items much like Apple products nowadays but unlike Apple, Nintendo are struggling and could do with a sales boost but who is going to pay £30 for a rehashed game they probably already own (I'd guess most Wii U owners owned a Wii and most Wii owners own one of the highest selling games ever).
#5
Seems a tad overpriced for what is only yet another mini-games compendium on a Nintendo console.
#6
For those that are interested these are already available for £8.99 each on Nintendo's Eshop or GAME. However the whole package is obviously a much better deal.
#7
I'll bite at £20, for sure. Although, I have to say, it is sad seeing negative comments on such a nice set of games. :(

I'm looking forward to the added value the online will provide. Especially the new regional teams competing via one another from around the world! That could be fun :)

The difference being that this is THE selection of games for a lot of people who bought the original Wii.

That makes no sense. The Wii one is the same as this, so surely the Wii one will look even older, and be "shovelware"?

I'm waiting for the £15-20 price range in no rush to get this as we've got Smash 4, Bayonetta 1+2 and Hyrule Warriors over this but still a decent deal compared to the over priced digital option.
[mod]#10
This is actually a great compilation of games which you'd go back to over and over. It is just a shame that Nintendo released them individually first then decided they should bundle them up. For people like me that bought then when they first came out, this is a bit annoying.
#11
The graphics do look a lot better than the original in my opinion, save for the ridiculously shaped characters that is.

Think i'll wait for this one to drop in price though, not be long before they're giving this game away with the console.

In Japan they have released a console bundle with these games on it. I don't think the game will drop in price that much, maybe settle at £19.99, due to it being a Nintendo title.

I gotta agree, we get ripped of on some of these games. Battlefield 4 was a rip off, angry birds on the console was overpriced as are loads of other mini and indie games. If they really want our money they need to realise that you can probably get better games on your phone or pad for a fraction of the price or even free. I'm quite happy to wait these days for major price drops on console games, I shall never buy new, it's a rip off.

I, too, wait for games to drop in price as it's more cost-effective. But, I will never say that we (gamers) are being ripped off, based on prices. You pay what you think something is worth. Just keep in mind that, while you're not alone, many people don't mind paying full price for stuff.

Also - better games on your phone? Since going back to a normal phone (no apps) I haven't missed "mobile" gaming.

Does this mean Nintendo will release the digital versions of Baseball and Boxing for those of us that have already got Bowling, Tennis and Golf?
Heat for 5 packaged sports if you've not invested yet.

UPDATE after research (Google): Nintendo will bring the final two Wii Sports mini-games, Baseball and Boxing, to Wii U on 27th June and offer all Wii U users free access for two days.
The mini-games are the last Wii Sports activities to be updated for Wii Sports Club, Nintendo's HD re-make of the Wii original.
Baseball and Boxing will be available at a discounted price of £8.99 for the pair - cheaper than the other sports (likely because they are two of the least popular.

The game that was the straw that broke the camels back was definitely Battlefield 4. I was dumb enough to by premium on the release date, the game didn't (and still doesn't) work from day one. I'm not going to list all the other gripes but I paid good money for that and there is no way you can tell me you get what you pay for. As for phone/pad games, I'm just saying that who in their right mind would pay £30 to £40 for a console version of a game when you can get it for 2 quid on your phone? Be realistic and understand that if the price is lower more people will buy it.

this is £25, and it isnt BF4. All this BF4 talk is totally irrelevant.

The day I got my Wii U back in November I booted the Sports Club. Before I knew it I'd played online tennis for 2hrs. It's great competition because the matches are so short that you always stand a chance of beating better players, and likewise may be beaten by lesser players. Turnover is fast and addictive.

I didn't buy the tennis at the time because I assumed Nintendo would discount it at some point - £5 and I'd bite. I'd much rather have the download than the disc, so hopefully when they release the disc they will discount the individual sports for download.

It's an example about the quality of games which get released by the games industry. It's a bit of software which is used by individuals on a console or pc to entertain themselves in various ways. I would say there is a connection there somewhere, therefore I would also say there is a high probability that the above quote is relevant. Good day to you :-P

Jeffers actually made a really good analogy about how you had put things in a previous comment. And just so you know, It's not to belittle anyone. It's just there to show you how your comment sounds to others. And to be frank, I agree with the analogy.

Talking about a glaring example like BF4 is a mite selective when condemning the whole industry for ripping off people like ourselves with pricing, game quality and release conditions, etc. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but what I do say is this, it doesn't happen anywhere near the level you allude to.
Also, I didn't understand the comment about being able to get a console game like BF4 for your phone. Finally, and more importantly, your comment about BF4 being currently broken is completely untrue. In fact, a few weeks ago Dice released the Netcode optimisations that players have asked for. And the game has been working fine for many months now. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't excuse their (EA & Dice's) broken game on release day fiasco. That was worthy of the ridicule and litigation they received. But, since I've been playing without issue since December, it's hard to see how you call the game broken, today. Problems? Yes. Now? Not so much.

Well you're lucky, I still have a list of annoying things which just make me not want to play. As for BF4 on your phone, I think you misunderstood me. I'm saying games like angry birds are released on consoles at crazy prices, if they were priced more like phone/pad games on the consoles shop people would probably be more inclined to purchase them. Maybe you and others are happy with the way game companies are releasing unfinished games and making the whole transition from physical to digital at the same price. I was just trying to give an opinion. For example, if you spend £75 in Mcdonalds or Pizza Hut you expect your food to be served up cooked with all the correct ingredients, there and then. Not half cooked, ingredients missing, bad service, waiting for 6 months, etc, etc!!! Is that a good analogy???

but this isn't angry birds, or bf4, its wii sports club. if you've played wii sports club, by all means, share your opinions on the game to help other community members make an informed decision as to whether or not the price is low enough for them. similarly, if you know of a better price for this game then feel free to share. talking about battlefield and angry birds in this particular thread is completely pointless.

for what its worth, we have the golf, tennis and bowling, and are really happy with them. imo, this is a good price, and if it did drop to £20, it would be an amazing price. i 'm an experienced gamer, my girlfriend doesn't play games, and my son is 7. this and mariokart are the only games which my gf will play, and me and my son both love it, so its appeal is excellent.

I have played Wii sports club, I got it for my kids and been playing games since pong on the Atari (is that acceptable). All my kids said was "We have this on the Wii". All I was doing was agreeing with the first post, which how I understood it they made a statement to old games being jazzed up with updated graphics and not much else and charging a lot of money for it. My opinion was that I agreed and gave reference to BF4! Then just by making conversation said that the indie games should be lower priced too. You can read any post on here and there are replies which have nothing to do with the subject, I don't understand where that rule came from? Now that's my experience and view on the game, if it is negative then ignore it. I personally don't think it's a good deal and pressed the cold button. Maybe just maybe there are others (God forbid) who feel the same?

I have no issue if you have a negative view of the game, everyone's entitled to an opinion, and by sharing them, we can help each other make purchases at prices we will be happy with. But your hatred of BF4 is completely irrelevant, and that's all people were saying. You seem to have taken it personally. Your last post, was the first time you actually commented on the game in question. The fact that it's a remake doesn't necessarily mean it's rubbish. There are a lot of improvements in the game, and, for me, the bottom line is, whether the game is fun, and do we get plenty of hours of play out of it. The answer, for us, is yes to both. And as its currently the best price, i make it a hot deal.

If you're referring to opinions in general, then yes, I agree. However, if you're referring to the "hot deal" rule I mentioned, I think you'll find that HUKD is all about that rule. I still remember someone posting a deal on a terrible game and a lot of people said so in the comments. However, it was held up as a hot deal because it was so cheap compared to the norm.

While the graphics might be HD they aren't really that much of an improvement over the original Wii Sports graphics. Game wise both tennis & bowling aren't massively different to the originals either. Adding motion+ controls to tennis still leaves it a tarted-up one button game.

I bought codes for tennis & bowling but tried them & wasn't really that impressed - I think it's a fair enough comment to say you might as well play the originals of these sports without too much difference in enjoyment.

Golf is different & seems quite cool. Boxing might be good with the dual-motion+ controls - the original wasn't really very good so that might add something to it. Baseball should be better also as the original was also pretty weak - plus it gave you a damaged shoulder if you played it for a while!

Online play adds nothing to bowling as it's quite tedious anyway. Tennis seemed like it might be good but it's much like playing the computer as there's very little the other player does - they either return the ball or they don't return the ball.

Whether it's worth £25 is obviously a personal opinion but just because it's currently the cheapest doesn't necessarily make it a good deal until you see the price across all other sellers. If only one seller had listed a price of say £40 that isn't a good deal just because it's not cheaper elsewhere.

The sports cost £8 each to buy separately which totals £40 - I would definitely not pay £40 for a jazzed up Wii Sports (having wasted about £30 or £40 on Wii Sports Resort & played it about 3 times before realising most of it was rubbish).

Neither. First up, that's not a real price (for the pack). 2nd, if it was, I have already stated, I'm not buying it at the current price in this deal. And 3rd, I never buy games at £40, ever. What are you trying to prove?

I think maybe his point is that the original Wii Sports was a free pack-in game. This is much the same game but you are now being asked to pay £30 to play the same slightly modified game. The graphics were pretty rubbish when Wii Sports came out - you'd think that having HD they might have done something with it but they haven't, it's got the same crappy graphics but they're a bit sharper. His point is why would you pay more for something that you can get cheap already - ie Angry Birds - but you think the additional features make it worth buying. I'm in 2 minds about what I think as having bought tennis & bowling for around £10 already I kind of wish I hadn't as I might have picked this up as the set. Now I'm either going to have to pay another £17 for the remaining 3 sports or just not bother at all. I think it'll be the latter tho.

People vote however they like & their vote will probably include weighing up what they think of the product & not simply whether it's the cheapest. It's not a rule at all - you might think it's stupid to not vote something as a hot deal if you genuinely don't think the product is worth the asking price but obviously other people might not care what you think. Since the game isn't out yet there's no reason why another place could sell it cheaper thus making this one a not so hot deal. Your 'deal' could also turn out to be the cheapest but it's down to whoever votes to decide if it's a good deal or not - that's the whole point.
