Mario & Sonic 2012 Olympics Wii Console - Blue £59.00 **Tesco Instore Only**

Found 23rd Oct 2013
I saw that my local Tesco (North Bracknell) had two of these - it may be useful for someone who doesn't want to splurge on the Wii U. It's worth noting that the new Wii U does play Wii games so the choice is yours.

***This edition does not play GameCube games, the emulation has been removed***

Another caveat is that some of the Wii channels are not being supported anymore, see below for details:

...but if you just want a Wii to play Wii games, it's a good deal.

Nintendo have stopped making these consoles in Japan and the price online is surprisingly high.

I got this Nintendo wii last year and went to play a gamecube game then found out that there's no ports for the controller so I couldn't play any which was a disappointment.

The black mario kart bundle is the same price if in stock as well.

If the box shows the Wii laying down then it is a revised model with the Gamecube function removed.

Yeah, sucks major ass.

I posted this a few weeks ago along with a few other clearance prices - they are all stock dependant instore

Good price

If you don't have any legacy Gamecube games (most people don't, only some do) then this is a good deal.

Pre-owned (albeit white with GC comaptibility) are around £30 - £40 from Game / CeX, so a few £'s more get you the console with all the original bit and packaging, and a game thrown in. Also, the remote is a 'Remote Plus' with built-in motion plus, worth about £5 more than a standard remote, otherwise you have to buy an add-on one for £5 - £15 more depending if new or pre-owned.

that is so good deal

Yep I know that sbrown25 posted this already, I seem it when I was going to post it. If people feel they need proof I have a receipt for the mario kart black bundle.

Strangely enough there are 2 for sale on ebay of this and they come from the same place...Bracknell! Charging £99.95 plus £14 postage.

I hoped someone would appreciate the deal, a bit of a shame someone's going to try to profit
