Wii Console + Wii Sports + Wii Sports Resort + Wii Motion Plus
If there's one console manufacturer that marches to the beat of a different drummer, it has to be Nintendo. The originator of the modern console-gaming era has been a traditional player in every single console generation

This Bundle Includes:

Nintendo Wii Console
Wii Remote
Wii Nunchuk
Wii Sports
Wii Sports Resort
Wii Motion Plus
Instead of putting together an expensive box with impressive hardware specifications like the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, Nintendo decided to set its Wii system apart by offering innovative gameplay with a new motion-sensitive controller. The Wii's gyroscope controller will take users away from the gamepad interface and make game control more intuitive. For instance, we're used to pressing buttons in a certain sequence to cast a line in a fishing game, but on the Wii, expect to pull the controller back and then whip it forward in a real casting motion to get that line out. It has an IBM processor and an ATI graphics chip. It's rumored to be two to three times as powerful as the GameCube. The Wii will also be able to play GameCube games, and Nintendo will release a Wii edition of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess with special controller support.

Virtual Console

Wii will have downloadable access to 20 years of fanfavourite titles originally released for Nintendo 64, the Super Nintendo entertainment system (SNES) and even the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) . the virtual console also will feature a best of selection from Sega Genesis titles and games from the Turbofax console . it will also be home to new games conceived by indie developers whose creativity is larger than their budgets .

The Specs

Wii boasts 512 megabytes of internal flash memory, two USB 2.0 ports and built in WiFi capability. A bay for an SD memory card will let players expand the internal flash memory . Design was optimized with state of the art processing technologies that minimize power consumption , keep the console compact and enable the "sleepless " Wiiconnect24 mode

Communication

Wii can communicate with the internet even when the power is turned off. This WiiConnect24 service delivers a new surprise or game update , even if users do not play with Wii. Users can connet wirelessly using IEEE 802.11B/G or with a USB 2.0 LAN adaptor. Wii also can communicate wirelessly with Nintendo DS .

The Controller

Nintendo chose to design the new controller the way it did. The controller had to meet four major requirements for Nintendo: It had to have wireless connectivity, approachability, and sophistication, and it had to be revolutionary.

The top half of the Wii controller features a directional pad and a single, oversized A button. If you hold the controller like a remote, your thumb will have immediate access to the D pad and the A button. The underside of the controller has a B button that functions like a trigger button. The controller features select, home, and start buttons lined up horizontally halfway down the controller, and the bottom half of the controller has two buttons stacked vertically. We've seen some controllers that have the buttons labeled as A and B, but other controllers have them labeled as 1 and 2. In any case, if you hold the controller sideways, you'll have two horizontal buttons for classic Nintendo gaming. The bottom of the controller has an attachment port for peripherals, should a game require more buttons

A variety of potential game-usage scenarios were shown at TGS. One involves a fishing game, but instead of pushing a button or moving an analog stick, with the new Wii controller you could cast a line by flicking your wrist. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will have the first implementation of real-world Wii fishing, complete with casting and reeling. Basic games, such as air hockey, can get a boost from the new controller design as well. The built-in sensor can detect depth as well as lateral movement, which lets you push the puck from side to side and into and away from the screen in one natural movement.

WAVE POINT RUMBLE LISTEN.

The Console come complete with the launch title Wii Sports. Enjoy Golf, Tennis, baseball all with the new wireless controller acting as the equipment with all simple and colorful visuals, with almost abstract-looking characters that look something like Playmobil people.

I'd be tempted to wait out on any perspective wii purchase as the feeling in the industry is that a major price drop is imminant.

OHHH what to do, buy now or wait

Apparently this is set to be the new standard bundle for the UK, instead of a price cut.

yep, there isnt going to be a price cut, this instead.

First post! Shame there is no price cut, i cant afford this, but i could afford a cut wii

thanks, just ordered

UK gets ripped off again. Its not competetive at current pricing when you can get an elite with 2 new releases for £199 or a ps3 slim with a couple of older games for £250.

You could argue this would still be the case even if they dropped the price to £150.

SO basically they have thrown in a Wii Sports Resort And Motion Plus and increase the retail price by £10 !

Am I th only one that thinks thats not such a good deal given the 360 and ps3 price cuts ?

Though, you could say it is also a price drop? considering you used to get just the wii and wii sports for £180? Hot btw!

I could argue you don't have a brain for suggesting Nintendo are ripping people off.
Sony and Microsoft work in a completely different way, they are happy to make a loss on the main hardware so others can't compete, because of that we have lost Sega and many other potential console makers (in the 1970s there were over 100)
Give Nintendo a break, if they want to make a profit good for them. Apart from the PS3 and 360 every other toy in the toy shops has a far bigger mark up than a Wii, not to mention TVs, DVD player, vacuum cleaners, but nobody moans about that do they? Games consoles actually have a lower share of the toy and game market than they did in the 1980s. I know from experience that most toys with massive mark ups end up in the bin.
Sadly we are stuck with the 360 and PS3 for a few more years as they try to reap the rewards of their risky business strategy and will start to get very long in the tooth considering the cutting edge technology out there. Personally I would prefer to give Sega £500 for a truly cutting edge gaming experience, if they could release one and still make a profit (ain't going to happen)

Great price for a great console.

Until Sony and Microsoft get on with copying Nintendo's motion controls, it's a great deal, as you can't play these games anywhere else.
Sony could make the PS3 £49 it does not mean that potential buyers will have more fun on a drunken Saturday night or after Xmas dinner.
£189 is still dirt cheap compared to a smart phone for example or even the new PSP.
Nintendo are not marking up wireless adapters, Hard Disks, charging for online gaming or selling movies on Blu-ray to get back their losses. They're a profitable gaming company who have just invested in a new R&D center for video games, not the next video format or office software. Which is great news if you're a Japanese gamer, us westerners seem to be too finicky, tight and moan too much so it's hardly surprising we get a lot of stuff after Japan.

you should expire this deal now..the bundles ben taken off the shopto.net website it says not available on there database ..so i guess either the deals been cancelled or the price will change hopefully going lower.

The wii is a great system well worth it i cant see it getting any more cheaper any time soon!!

More likely Nintendo's asked them to take it down until it becomes official...

Yep. Wii owners really don't buy many games atall. N have to make a profit on the hardware or go belly up. I'm pretty sure there's some figures floating around showing the 360 in the lead in the how many games owned per console stakes, the ps3 not too far behind and the wii a distant third.

If this is the new offering its effectively a price increase as the wii hardware retails at £170 - £180 currently.

Wii hardware sales have fallen off a cliff following the 360 and ps3 price cuts, worldwide wii sales last week were 40k more than the 360 and the ps3 outsold the wii 2 - 1.

I was expecting a proper cut from Nintendo, especially as the wii hardware is bascially the same sort of power as the orginal xbox which is 8 years old.

thanks

yeah too make a wii console must cost nintendo peanuts compared to the ps3 ..yet theres only about 50 pounds difference .i think itll be intresting this xmas because unless the wii gets a really good price drop the ps3 and 360 are gonna kick its ****..both the 360 and ps3 have some killer games coming out over the next few months but the wiis not really got any big titles except wii fit 2 (and thats the oly reason my wife wants a wii because she wants wii fit)as a actual gameplayers machine the wii isnt even in the same league as the others.

Smart phones, Netbooks and many music players cost more than a Wii and are less powerful. I see more kids with smart phones and ipods than I do PSPs and DSs, and there is a lot more profit in the former hardware, nobody moans.
Nintendo pay the Chinese factory $20 to make each Wii, regardless of power looking dated each month, from there on the price adds up. One of the main chips is $29 price agreed ages ago for bulk buy, one chip in controller is $7, there's many more bits that add up. Then you have logistics and marketing and shareholders who expect a profit + the salaries of all the people who got the ball rolling with the new console in the first place. Im guessing nobody on Hotukdeals complaining about Nintendo's prices, own shares?
If you want to see how costs add up for low spec hardware, study the 'Pandora console'. Dedicated gaming companies cant make a loss.

Wii sales could have hit a wall, regardless of price. The average consumer doesn't go in a shop geared up to buy a Wii + Wii sports, Mario Kart and Galaxy, and end up with GTA4, Call of Duty 5, Forza 3 instead just because the price is better. Those people do not perceive faster chips to be better value.
There are still a lot of school kids with PS2s who've been waiting to upgrade, these kids and parents remember when the PS2 was £149 and they probably still use composite cable on a small screen TV in their bedroom. Playstation is still The school playground brand.
Also non videophiles getting interested in Blu-ray now it appears in most rental shops. Lower income families can now afford that 360 they've lusted after. I'm sure many Wii owners also aspire to own 2 or more consoles.
At the end of the day even if you only own one console, Im sure you have other toys or hobbies seeking your hard earned $$$, all this affects sales in different ways.

Sony shareholders have been unhappy for ages, Nintendo share holders have been very happy for ages. That's all that really matters in the grand scheme of things.

all sold out

not sold out not up to buy its been taken down

They'll all be doing this next month, just wait a few days. This is the new Nintendo Wii package.

on all the big gamesites as posted above this will be the only bundle available in europe.we wont be getting any price cuts instead more items but if you check game/gamestation if you buy the above bundle now its about 220 pounds so if they do give us all that resort stuff and charge 179.99 its still saving us 40 pounds compared to buying it now so i guess its better than nothing .

but one thing i was thinking about was if this will be the only bundle available from oct2nd surely stores and websites that still have the normal wii sports bundles will be selling them off cheaper too make room for the new bigger bundles.this happened with the xbox360s and ps3s once they brought out newer packs the older models got sold of really cheap.

im not too fussed if i get wii resort or not ill keep a beady eye on hotukdeals just in case any old console deals pop up.

and on another note second hand wiis with mario cart have now dropped back down to 129 at gamestation last week they were 149 .

the deals already to buy now at your local tosrus and its available online too ..
