Wii Console: $267
Call of Duty 3: $50
Wii Play: $50
Spiderman 3: $50
Zelda Ocarina of Time: 1000 Points ($10)
Wiimote and Nunchuck grips: $15

Launch Day:
2nd Wiimote
2nd nunchuk
Zelda TP
Excite Truck
Super Monkey Ball BB
Wii Points card

Nintendo component cables
Wii Play
Wario Smooth Moves
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Classic controller
Wii Points card
VC Games: All the old Mario and Zelda titles, Castlevania

Mario Party 8
Pokemon Battle Revolution [my son is chomping at the bit for this one]

I'd rather not think about how much that all cost, since I'd then have to think about how much more I've spent on PS3, 360, DS, and PSP consoles, games, and misc. gear.

hah, yah...good point

Dont get mario party 8... its supposed to suck.

I bought zelda, sold it, but then got it for free.

All the games suck now, every system goes through this phase. Resident Evil will be good though, and Guitar Hero III will be good too... probably a few others. Upcoming games look weak though

My sister has picked up a few games too. And half the games and items on the list were gifts or parents credit card. I'm thinking I spent around £90 myself actually. And of course the Wii was bought for the family. Liked I planned I'm only buying the "best of" this gen. All the above games I friggin love and don't "suck" ;)

NOW... the DS. DS Classic+Lite, substantial library of games, M3 (Cave Story homebrew port on the horizon)... I'm too scared to calculate :(

Quick question, any of you guys purchase the Wii "Chill Station?" It is basically a stand for the wii. It has a USB powered fan at the bottom, an illuminating blue light at the base (just like the wii slot) and it also has a holder for 2 controllers and 2 nunchucks. Its 20 bucks and i just want to know if its any good.


Jun 2, 2007, 07:05 PM
Nope. Maybe it's the weather up here but our Wii doesn't get hot. Then again it isn't next to X, Y and Z head producing hifi gear.

This thread can potentially get HUGE quickly. :)

I would like to get those grips, but at $15 a pop, I'll pass. My friend had to take off the rubber to sync it to my other friend's Wii, that seemed a bit annoying.

Oh, if you guys buy a charger station get the Nyko set, not the other brand that I can't recall their name. The other brand was designed by a tard. The Wiimote can't be synced without spare batteries, because they built the rechargeable batteries into the cover, so once you remove it the Wiimote has no power. The Nyko doesn't have this issue.


Jul 18, 2007, 02:21 PM
an extra remote and nunchuk
Madden 07? maybe 08, no idea :D

I got my Wii back in February, and since then I've got a few gamecube games for ~$5 each. Wii specifically, I've gotten the following games and accessories for it:

I'm thinking about getting a 2nd remote, and maybe a game this week. I'm... not a hardcore gamer.
