    Wii & XBox Help - For Technophobe !

    Just after some advice - i am a technophobe - and clueless when it comes to gaming !

    Firstly - we (as a family) got a Wii two years ago - and we use the bowling etc and the kids use carnival games, Mario etc - but we had a ball playing 'Just Dance' that someone got us for Christmas.

    My help request is - we have 2 remotes - but would like 2 more so we can all play together - but looking about they seem to cost a fortune - can i get them cheap - and how much would i expect to pay ?

    Also - we played 'Lips' at a friends and it was great fun - can you get the remotes & games cheaper apart - or are we better getting it as a set if we look to get it ?

    Help 2 !

    My lad got an Xbox with some money & from FC - but we only have one remote - is £40 about what i will need to pay for another (as seen in Game today)

    Thanks very much for any help given

    £40 is a lot for a controller, i would keep your eye out for wireless bundles where a controller is with a game as you can pick them up for cheaper.

    Help 2,

    What remote are you talking about? The lips microphone or the actual xbox controller? If the later which xbox has your son just got? xbox slim or xbox elite (black) or even the older white xbox?

    you can get compatable controllers and nunchuks from game etc for under £30 will have a look round and try and find some for you.

    I think the new xbox slim controllers are around £40 everywhere, there is little difference though to the ones you can pick up for around £18 at times.

    it is black and 250g (thats all i know - sorry!) - it was the microphones i meant - it is alot cheaper to buy the game on its own - but can't find the mic's - wondered if its cheaper to get the separately or together ?

    The microphones can be picked up from ebay for £7.50 each, other than that i have no clue sorry.

    Actually i do remember seeing to microphones and a lips game for around £18 but i think that was quite cheap at the time.

    Yeah sorted with RM, cheers what a hassle. Sorry about that mind

    I can check my Morrisons tmrw as its only over the road but i warn you now that they never do any of the deals!

    For the Xbox controller, keep an eye on the deals for a "Wireless Entertainment Pack", can be had for < £20 usually, and you get a controller + 2 games typically.

    thanks - will watch out for that

    I got Lips + 2 mics for £18 just before Christmas from Play - think that deals finished now, but its a heads up that the price does go that low. (and they also had the number 1's + 2 mics for same price)
