Wasn't the wavebird like £35, for a very long time??

 

Yes, but a Wavebird was newer tech, and you use it to have fun.

Uh, the Wii controller costs more than that.

 

Well the Wii-mote has rumble.

 

Without a doubt. Better than the Wii and 360 line up combined by miles.

 

Kind of funny that near all the best games are Sega.

Flip the PSP over, it's behind the removeable flap on the left hand side. There's a gap at the top of it, it just pulls straight out.

 

Also no, you cannot recharge via USB.

Erm the wii-mote is £30. PS3 controller is £35. your maths is playing with your mind mate, because the last time i checked, that would make the Wii-mote cheaper.

He's probably on about the Nunchuk combo. Anyway, Wiimote has FULL motion sensing, rumble, a speaker, optional plug-in accessories - and a sexy white gleam. So in my eyes it's better value.

Well since most games will be making you have a Nuchuck and a Remote. It's safe to say it will cost you £45 for the combo on your Wii. While it is different and cooler, it's certainly should be cheaper though.

The SIXAXIS has new technology in it too, and I'm pretty sure that people using it will have fun.

You sure about that, I thought it was just the same stuff as Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble.

I totally agree with this, for me a Wii controller should be remote and nunchuk. It's £45 for a Wii controller and £35 for a PS3 one. Wii controller might be better but both are still over priced.

NO PORN!

 

Sony will not allow BD to be used by pornographers.

 

Isn't that what PS2 was used for, mostly?

 

If you fancy an HD wank then you'd better get a 360!

The PSP was sued for pr0n.

 

Anyway, that's not a bad line up, plenty of games to keep people happy.

It's the same type of motion sensor as the Nunchuck.

Yes. But any game worth playing uses the nunchuk also, meaning it costs more than £35 (Although most Wii games are just rubish mini game collections that only use the remote, admittedly). Do you understand now? I don't have much patience, so I won't be going over it again i'm afraid.

OmGzzz, 6AxI$ @ 35£$£$£!

 

It's not a rip off, as has been said, just a few more quid than the 360's pad.

I wish people would stop saying "OMGZZ WE GETZ RIPED OFF". Complaining won't change a thing, plus, the people complaining bought the damn thing anyway, so it's obviously not that bad a price. (Wii that is). Yes the PS3 is a lot of money, but if people want it, they will buy it.

People in the UK are prepared to pay a lot for a brand name whereas they aren't in America. That's why we have to pay so much more for it, they might as well charge as more if we're happy to pay more for it. You also have to take in account VAT which is 17.5% extra straight off.
