    It's a Wii bit too much for me (See what I did there ;)) I think. Will wait for the first price drop, although Zelda will be hard to resist.

    Was hoping for the 130 mark.

    /sigh

    Importing for me then (I said if it was Over 150 and/or 2 weeks after the US launch, I'd import)

    What's the best US site for importing hardware?

    Did they mention how much additional Wiimotes will be? That's a fairly crucial piece of information.

    Was expecting 150, but with the game bundeled I think thats a good price point. The date is great aswell.

    Would like to know peripheral prices, as ill be bagging a complement of remotes for maximum multiplayer goodness.

    ralph whatever his name is was being a right smug pleb about him "knowing" it would be 150/November which he got from "industry news". I'm guessing this was his source of certainty.

    Cmon then, ralph. Lets se you eat the pie of shame.

    That's 30 too expensive, and games should be 29.99.

    Not too shabby. We are only getting ripped $27 before tax when you compare the US price. Included Wii sports makes it a nice buy.

    To be honest I think its a bit much, although I'm certainly still buying one at release. It should have been 150 quid with the game, 180 is outside of most peoples impulse range I feel.

    Not to mention its not exactly a massive gap between the Wii and the 360 Core pack...

    180 with a game isn't outrageous i suppose. Still want to play with one before i buy so i'm not bothering to pre-order.

    Had no luck with the live text updates here... had to head off to IGN instead :(

    Unbelievably this tosser makes a living from writing. Just horrible.

    Any ideas on when we'll be able to pre-order?

    I need to decide between 360 or Wii, can't afford both now

    Is a memcard included or do we need to buy one as well?
    +1 WiiSports = uninteresting.
    I hope they do other bundles at launch.

    * Is the forum slow because afix is making a kerbillion bloody Nokia threads?

    So.. Don't buy it?

    Why is it that we all expect a Nintendo console to be half the price of everything else?

    For 179... It's sold to me. Expensive compared to everywhere else for sure, but still it's within my "YES PLEASE!" range (just).

    It's cheaper and it comes with a proper game, seems like a major plus point for the Wii to me.

    Yep, credit to Nintendo for budling a game. Having a console without a game is *very* frsutrating to parents buying for kids, makes the whole thing seem like a con.

    I'm sold, but I would've expected them to have a 150 pack without a game as that seems more competative with Xbox360 for 199.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    I need a component cable to go along with mine which knocks the price up at least another 20.

    Buy a Wii, and extra 3 controllers, Zelda, Monkey Ball, Warioware, and Tonys

    Absolutely perfect price point for both console and games imo, especially compared to the 50 or thereabouts for 360 stuff. Very competitive indeed. /pre-orders
