Found 21st Aug 2012
CeX seem to have lots of these in stock, good price its comes with an official motion pllus controller
if you buy online there is a delivery charge of £2.50 but it seems a lot of stores have it in stock.
you can also buy the wii fit board from them for just £10 so that is a bargain set up!

Hot deal. Is it the old Console or one of those new slimmer one's?

great deal, all you need to do is spend 30 mins softmodding and you have a console that can play amiga, mame, ps1 games as well

I doubt if most of them would have the Motionplus controller. Only relatively new versions of the Wii have that and I expect these are typically the older models that were on sale before the Motionplus controller was bundled.

cracking deal got one a few months back for 50 squids had no problems whatsoever.

I would think (but feel free to correct me) that the ones at this price are the 'discounted' old white Wiis. This usually means they have some external damage or are missing extras.

I bought mine from CEX for £40 and was given the choice of one with a broken hinge on the GameCube controller cover, or one missing a stand. One in standard used condition would have been an extra fiver.

Doesn't stop this being hot, just thought I'd point it out.

i agree i think if you buy from a store you can pick out which one you would like so you can avoid that happening but if you buy online i suppose its more of a risk as to what you get

the one we got as a spare had one official motion plus controller with it and a nunchuck was complete with all leads and undamaged looked in pretty good condition to be honest . Im not sure if it depends where you buy from again we got it from a store however online I supose may differ in what they send you

The older ones are better for softmodding as you can use the dvd drive as a player with home brew. The later black ones disabled this due to piracy

If you want one with a motionplus controller its £4 extra. Clicky

Do you get any warranty with these?

Yes you can, but its not advised, as the Wii used a cheap DVD drive, and using it as a DVD player will quickly burn out the lazer. Plenty of topics online about this, and how its not advised.

Thanks. In that case I might get one.

Do you mean the black ones can't be softmodded, or they can be modded but the drive can't be used as a dvd player? I've softmodded our black one, but to be honest never tried to use it as a dvd player due to the reasons given above (quicker burn out of the drive) - we play the games direct from a portable hard drive plugged in the back.

Does this come with a wii controller?

Are you just too lazy to read the description ?

Sorry my bad

I saw this a while ago but the condition they were in was absolutely awful

Excellent price, although I could never go back to playing on a console after using Dolphin. Stock graphics just look disgraceful in comparison!

Saw one of these in Hemel today in the window of CEX . Condition was fine, nice and tidy.
