That's for a regular Wii, not the limited edition black skin.
Some peeps want this for aesthetic reasons.

Must say i'd be tempted if I was didn't alreday have a regular white Wii; Black would match everything else .... worth the premium

same price here......

but they are very reliable at delivering on or before release day via courier rather than play.com snail mail courier, some of the people who pre ordered the uncharted ps3 pack waited over a week after release!
hot price for black wii:thumbsup:

oh I forgot the £1.65 quidco with this lol

i checked this earlier and it was £174.99 must have changed their price after they looked on hotukdeals lol. Does anyone know if 5% rac code will work on this?

5% RAC code is no longer working :cry:

Looks very hot.

Hot deal. heat added. I considered trading in my white wii for the black one (which would look better in my living room) but I can tolerate it a little longer... Im saving for a PS3 instead!

Brilliant price for pre-order and worth it for those who dont have one already...

lol...since i got my brand new 120gb ps3 with two controllers and three games for £160,,,i think i'll have to leave this.

heat and rep

i am the only person in the world that thinks this black wii looks a bit tacky from the pics? wii should be white!

Even when a White console is £25 less? I just bought a white one with 2 excellent games for the same price as this. I know which one my kids would rather have.

Oh no................

does this mean nintendo will be releasing colours other than white at a premium price point, and yet again the masses will grab the credit cards to buy a slightly different colour version of something they already have?? Its worked with pretty much everything else Nintendo (and yes sony with the PS2 / PSP) have produced in the last 10 years.

Maybe nintendo could release a gamecube with the wii casing round it and motion controllers that need expensive additons to work accurately...................oh wait they already did.

Is it just me or I cannot see nunchuck in that description. It would mean you have to pay extra 15£ for it

I would have thought it would come with it. in fact i remember seeing a black nunchuck on another deal.

But, this is Nintendo were talking about, they like to rip people off.

Don't all Wiis come with a nunchuck in the box nowadays?

I suppose the real question is whether the motionplus in this bundle is black also. The black motionplus does exist, but there's no deal for Sports Resort with black motionplus as far as I can see.

Depends whether it's an official bundle or one that Play's made up themselves I guess. I would ask Play before ordering as a white motionplus on a black wiimote would look ridiculous.

Hopefully it will be the official bundle shown at the ]Nintendo website. I'd be annoyed if Play sent out a white motionplus. Not that I'm going to order from them after messing up my order for a white Wii at launch.

I'm confused about the quidco amount - I was expecting 1% as that's what the Qudico site says for Play.com console sales. I've had a tracking conformation email though and it says the expected cashback amount is £ 3.30 :?

Delivery time isn't too much of an issue for us as it'll be hidden away somewhere for Christmas

Looks like it's the official one then, ignore my doubts in my post above, everyone :-D

Thanks for the info nameloc, have some rep :thumbsup:

After playing some of my Gamecube games on this there is a substantial difference in the two consoles. And all of my controllers work fine without the addons. The addon just means they work differently not more "properly". Some games suit precise motion sensing, others less so. And a lot of the games don't really need it at all. And at just over £15 if you do want to buy a wii motion plus it isn't really that expensive.

thegroutch;6638891

but pay 20% extra for it???



Some people pay over 100% more for a t-shirt with their favourite football team on it, but then this is a consumerist society....

I didnt state the motion control makes the controllers work 'properly' I said more 'accurately'. I wouldnt expect to have to buy an add on to my my ps3 or xbox 360 controllers just to make the analogue stick accurate.

also the cost is £15 for each controller (im not going to bother going into nunchuk costs) and as the Wii is sold as a family console you would expect to have to purchase at least two motion + controllers possibly even four.

£15 - £60 might not be that expensive to you but on a money saving website believe me every penny matters.

Also I suggest you play mario kart double dash and then mario kart wii - you can get a very good comparsion then between the two consoles as many of the same courses are used. IMHO Double dash runs smoother and looks better...you wouldnt expect the same to ever be said of say Gran tourismo 4 (Ps2) compared to Gran tourismo 5 prologue (Ps3), or project gotham racing PGR 2 on xbox compared to PGR 3 on the xbox 360.

Looks good in black, but the base needs to be black too, spoils it completely.

Wow, some real whingebags on here :whistling:

If I didn't already have one I'd go for the black version for an extra 20quid or so. Would match the tv, ps3, etc. The blue light on the black case looks like it's come from the dark side of the force :-D

Good point about a white motion plus on a black wiimote, it'd look like half a magic wand.

It's a black motionplus and black skin. This is an official bundle

To go for a saving of £1.51 or not. I guess I have a few weeks to think about it.

You speak sense. Sure, you can get the white one cheaper, but consider that you will still have to pay £165 for a white wii, just with some extra games rather than actually being able to get it for £145, then I personally dont think it matters.

If you are going to spend £150 on something, its worth paying a little more and getting something that is going to look good for the next 3 years or so - if you can afford £150, im sure you can afford £170!

Have been looking for a Wii and dont mind the colour but found the black one to be the cheapest with the 2 games - next cheapest was the white one with only sports at £179! Any ideas where they are cheaper please?

Available at Game for £164.99 with 1.5% Quidco and £8.25 worth of Game Points so in theory = £154.27

Hope that helps someone!!

I've just ordered another bundle using the 5% RAC member's discount making the price £ 156.74 before Quidco (tracking at 2%)

I can't find the original thread for the RAC offer on here though which had full instructions. The link to the member's page is here but I don't know what the membership number was in the original offer thread (we're RAC members so I used our number).

Can anyone find the original RAC thread?

I'm totally confused by the Qudico tracking on this deal.

First time I ordered at £ 164.99 it tracked at £ 3.30, so that's 2% not the 1% promised.
Just ordered again using the RAC code at £ 156.74 and it's tracked at £ 6.60?!

Thanks to JustifiedAncient who has posted a link to the RAC Play 5% discount thread - don;t be put off by the fact it's expired, I got a RAC code to work this evening

RAC Play thread is here

Another idea would be buying it on release day at GAME with the code BTY09 to get an extra £5 off (it doesn't work with pre-orders). You also get Quidco & points on top.

Now showing as in stock

I done this RAC deal with play.com and orded the black wii, today i find out i wont get it by friday when im ment too as they wont be posting them till friday on a 3-5 day delivery, this is what i was told on the phone, so i have now canceled and ordered from DVD.co.uk for £164.99 which are posting 24hr delivery.. i have orded from play.com for over 12 years even before they had a website and they have let me down big time think ill stop getting stuff from play now...
