Wii & XBox Help - For Technophobe !

5y, 10m agoPosted 5 years, 10 months ago
Just after some advice - i am a technophobe - and clueless when it comes to gaming !

Firstly - we (as a family) got a Wii two years ago - and we use the bowling etc and the kids use carnival games, Mario etc - but we had a ball playing 'Just Dance' that someone got us for Christmas.

My help request is - we have 2 remotes - but would like 2 more so we can all play together - but looking about they seem to cost a fortune - can i get them cheap - and how much would i expect to pay ?

Also - we played 'Lips' at a friends and it was great fun - can you get the remotes & games cheaper apart - or are we better getting it as a set if we look to get it ?

Help 2 !

My lad got an Xbox with some money & from FC - but we only have one remote - is £40 about what i will need to pay for another (as seen in Game today)

Thanks very much for any help given

£40 is a lot for a controller, i would keep your eye out for wireless bundles where a controller is with a game as you can pick them up for cheaper.

I think the new xbox slim controllers are around £40 everywhere, there is little difference though to the ones you can pick up for around £18 at times.

it is black and 250g (thats all i know - sorry!) - it was the microphones i meant - it is alot cheaper to buy the game on its own - but can't find the mic's - wondered if its cheaper to get the separately or together ?

The microphones can be picked up from ebay for £7.50 each, other than that i have no clue sorry.

Actually i do remember seeing to microphones and a lips game for around £18 but i think that was quite cheap at the time.

GAME have this http://www.game.co.uk/Xbox360/Music/Singing/~r346907/Lips-I-love-the-80s-With-Microphone/?mid=346907

But only 1 microphone

For the Xbox controller, keep an eye on the deals for a "Wireless Entertainment Pack", can be had for < £20 usually, and you get a controller + 2 games typically.

I got Lips + 2 mics for £18 just before Christmas from Play - think that deals finished now, but its a heads up that the price does go that low. (and they also had the number 1's + 2 mics for same price)
