Conflicting Gamers - "What a SMOKING DEAL! For today only, Best Buy is dishing out ALL 3 Wii Bundles for $169.99. The RED, BLACK and classic WHITE are ALL $169.99. That’s a tremendous deal!"
No thanks I'll save 169
Says the guy with the PS3 as his avatar.... Pfft...
He might think that the PS3 offers more then the Wii None the less, this is a great deal, my old Wii broke so i will prob. pick this up
Well its not really THAT good of a deal. It's only $30 off, plus tax.
I some what agree with Headquarters. This deal has been available since the morning of black Friday, and chances are it might be available on Sunday as well...the fact that they are still available this late in the game, makes me believe that others don't think it is that big of a deal either. With that said, I was in Best Buy today, and there were plenty of people standing around watching everybody demo Kinect. As a 360 owner, I am not interested in Kinect...but clearly people are intersted in it....
@sitdown I saw the same thing for both the move and kinect not trolling here. I think that sony and microsoft are actually doing what they set out to do. That is taking a piece of the social gaming share away from the wii. I am getting a wii for my nieces tho for this price why not.
red is such a terrible color yuk, should have made a blue one.
That actually is not a good deal. Everyone local here is selling them for 149.99 and Meijer is selling it for that with a 20 dollar coupon, so you get it for 129.99.
Nice but damn I'm interested on getting one once Zelda pops up. I don't have that kind of money to spend now sadly.
NO thanks, can someone tell the wii to die already
I'm pretty sure it's here to stay...
Now we are getting somewhere but I would never pay more than 100$ for a wii. It calculator specs have been overcharged to the public ever since it released.
Technically it is pretty close to $100 if you factor in the Wii Motion Plus and the games in the total price!!
yea. I'll buy one when the price comes down. I just don't have time or money to invest in the entire backlog of the wii. I also lack Nintendo nostalgia.
Wii has some great games. When it goes down in price a bit more, I may purchase one. If it was $150, it may seem a bit more enticing to me. lol@ best buy and lol@$170 on sale. (It's the principal of the thing) "What a SMOKING DEAL! " edit: that is pretty cheap though
your kids want good games not some fake leave it to beaver fake family kinect bs that has no games and doesn't work lol. I myself already have a wii and dkc returns so ill spend that extra 169 on some more pc parts so my pc can play wii and gamecube games as well with the dolphin emulation. Id like to have the option to play the entire history of nintendo console on my pc as well as on my wii.
Buy the wii and not the shity knockoff called playstation move.
Its ok for the Wii to also be the shitty knockoff, but the move can't?
The Wii is still around?
Who really plays a Wii anymore? I stopped playing after I finished Galaxy 2, and before that it was with Brawl, before that it was Paper Mario, then Twilight Princess. Seems I only buy 1 game per year on wii, since you know...that's what they offer, 1-2 good games a year. Really need to buy Donkey Kong though.
As long as Nintendo's core is present(Mario, Zelda, Metroid, DK, Kirby, etc) Then the Wii will always have a place in my gaming rotation. I grew up on these franchises, and I have no plans to stop playing them now. For example, I still play Mario Kart, NSMB Wii, and the Galaxy games very regularly. Although, I am pretty pissed that Nintendo didn't release a new Mario Golf or Mario Tennis game. Those two series of games were awesome.
no doubt, I do enjoy these games, that's why I said I played them, but for me at least, I get tired of games relatively fast (like a month or two of use). Games that have multiplayer stretches the length of time I use the game as well (though not all). What really bothers me is that they don't release a lot of games yearly; especially third party titles. Where as with 360 and Ps3, I get the first party games and still get great third party games as well. I still haven't sold my Wii for that same reason, hey do have great first party title games, just not released as frequent as I wish. Give me another Super Smash Nintendo.
You are talking to a troll. Notice he only knows some big games but Metroid, Monster Hunter, Golden Eye are nowhere to be seen. Some people on this site think that claiming to own one before they trash it some how makes their opinion more valid. Seriously read what he is saying. Blaming the Wii for 3rd party support while commending MS on their 1st party. 1st party MS games? Really now? Guy complains about poor 3rd party but doesnt support 3rd party games at all and thinks MS has great first party while Nintendo who releases tons more is some how not doing enough.
@White Sharingan Oh, I agree there. They haven't been really consistant, that's for sure. For example, the move to revive DK and Kirby came too late IMO. If it happened earlier, we would already be on the second Wii entry already. Another thing they could have done is put DK on the Mario pattern this Gen. By that I mean a mix of 2D and 3D titles. DK64 was popular enough to at least try this. So yeah, they could have done more in terms of providing a regular stream of first party titles. I think that there's some room for improvement there.
Oh man, if they would only make a DK64 type of game, that would make my year. I never could finish that game unfortunately (I bought the green DK64 edition N64). If only they would bring that game for 3DS. Seferoth75- Troll or not, you only mentioned two third party games there...Not really a Metroid fan (I did play the GCN ones though) and I played MH on PSP, not my game either. Goldeneye is another story, but even so, 1 third party game? No, just no. You're getting ahead of yourself, before you start fighting against a "troll" read carefully what he writes. Nowhere did I say that MS first party games are better than Wii first party games, or that there is a greater amount of them. What I said is that with MS and Sony I can get their first party titles (no matter what the number is) and third party as well, whereas with Wii games, I only get great first party games. Why would I buy bad third party titles? Nintendo has shown time and time again that third party titles sell better on Wii compared to PS3 and 360, so even with great third party sales, barely any developer actually makes a good third party game.
...the Wii SHOULD have been at launch. :o
I just gave my Wii away a couple days ago
I wish I had an excuse to pick up that bundle, but I already have a wii.
You know its time to visit the doctor when your Wii is red.
