How to get started with Nintendo Wii - please help

10 replies
Found 17th Oct 2009
We are looking to get a Wii but just don't know where to start.
What are the essential bits needed to get started (just the 2 of us playing, and really only looking to play Sports/Sports Resort)
Do we need to buy certain controllers separate? What is included with the console?

I know there are so many bundles/accessories out there but we don't know which bits we really need.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - rep waiting.

Thanks

many shops are selling off the old packs but the new pack should contain wii sports/sports resort/one wiimote/one nunchuck and one motion plus controller so on top of the pack you need another wiimote/nunchuck and motion plus to play 2 player on both games.

novelty wears off pretty quickly.

Get the basic package for £140(1 controller, 1 nunchuck)

You then could do with another controller for ~£27(Wii Play which includes a game).
You could also get another Nunchuck for ~£12
Plus a rechargeable battery pack (Two batteries plus charging station) for ~£10

they are good for a bit of fun with mates and for non-serious gamers(like myself)

The new base bundle includes the same package as before, but now has Wii Sports resort game, plus a "Motion Plus" attachment. Not another controller.

We aren't serious gamers at all - just want to have something else other then telly in the evenings once kiddies have gone to bed. This seemed the ideal solution - is there any reason why people are against it? I don't want to waste money if it isn't very good.
Are the games fun to play?
