Hmmmmmm well after the initial shock of the £180 price tag - it's actually not that bad remember a few days ago everybody was thinking £150 for a Wii was a good price and £30 more for the Wii with a game ain't too bad. Just makes you sick the Yanks get it for £132.

 

only cos they bitch and moan about it-seriously americans are soo stupid they dont realise when theyre getting an excellent deal!

8 december is nice. 250 euros is to be expected, but 180 quid is so steep considering the 360 is only 199 (right?).

What's up with you?! It's only 3 weeks longer then America and not 5-6 months like the gamecube! God, why do people always have to complain?

 

Jeeze calm down! Its almost 3 months from today, thats ages for me. I would have liked it sooner.

 

Also I have exams starting the 11th (3 days after launch!).......fuck!

The reason why it's £179 and not nearer £150 is because of all the taxes and duties we have in rip off Britain.

 

Don't forget, if you import it, you could get stung for import duty in which case you could easily end up losing money . . .

 

Anyway, at least they didn't hold it back until March 2007 - something I was dreading.

Oh, sorry! I thought that you were complaining about that we have to wait longer and stuff. My mistake :)

Same as, i was considering a US import but i think i'll hold out. Gameplay have always served me well on past console pre-orders.

wii sports comes with the console, Wii play seems to be a separate game that comes with a controller, I might be wrong though.

The 179 price was also met with the same response as this today, which most probably prompted them to change it. That and lack of sutained interest.

 

So complain for a couple more days, then ignore it for avout a month, and you've got yourself an easy 50 quid.

Hmmmm, not sure about the price tbh, but it could have been worse. The fact that it is out this year and software pricing is good news though.

 

Methinks I might pre-order rather than import. I'll decide on that soon.

I probably will too but I might aswell preorder at Gameplay just incase I can't or something, as if it hasn't been dispatched by the night before i'll just cancel it etc.

It's about £63 higher than the Japanese price not just because of the taxes and import duties in the UK but also because Europe and US are getting the Wii bundled with a copy of Wii Sports. However, Japan is not getting any free games.

SO far away!

 

I can't believe the price. Thats the big surprise.

 

Europe getting it last was VERY predictable though.
