Found 25th Jun 2008
Bought a brand new Wii from play at £170.99 with Wii sports plus wii play and cost me ~£200 with student discount.

Is that a good deal?

Not had much time to research it on ebay and other websites. But on ebay is it significantly more expensive.

yeah thought as much, this package does come with an extra wii remote which is £30 anyway.

But since it is brand new I think it's an OK deal, I could have got mario kart but wanted an extra controller.

Yep you're right, but on short notice I think it is OK.

As long as I haven't been totally robbed it's OK.

£200 overall at shopto.

1) Wii box containing usual stuff: Console, 1 remote & 1 Nunchuck
2) Wii Sports
3) Big Brain Academy
4) 2nd Remote + Wii Play
5) 2nd Nunchuck

no its not its not even similar to that - where did i say wait for the next wii

Its been out since december 2006 - its graphics are a little better than the ps2 and its £170 still

Hilarious as you can get an xbox 360 that outputs high def and looks amazing for £140

same with the ds i bought it for £129 when it came out with metroid demo then they discontinued it and brought out the lite and its been £99 ever since
so despite it being 3 years old the ds's price has stuck because nintendo are so obsessed with profits nowadays and not games

Dont get me started on the ps2 price

It's the play-ability what people are paying for.

I don't give a damn if the XBOX is cheaper and better, it doesn't have the same gameplay. I don't buy consoles but after playing on the Wii I just had to get it! (This is my frist console after SNES!)

So you might say, oh but XBOX 360 is hi-def. But Nintendo still sold more consoles......... and there is a reason for that. They have made a more fun console, simple.

Theres a wii style remote coming out for the 360, in fact theres 2, one by microsoft and theres a 3rd party one i think out very soon , so the wii will then probably have nothing at all over a 360, id expect to see far more games making better use of the controller on the 360 as nintendo are ridiculously strict as to what they will allow to be released on the wii,

Pretty interesting actually, but will just have to wait and see.

In the mean time Wii is the only one that has the motion sensor, so Wii wins.

how do you get student discount at game?
