Why do you need a power brick.

FinalFormKing235902d ago

5000 points and a controller is 42 bucks?!? That is a little too expensive for me. I think I will stick with 1000. That seems more reasonable

For the power brick, i guess they're gonna sell em just in case yours dies. I REALLY hope for them that the bundle includes a power brick, lolz.

The lamest thing IMO is the SD card. I mean, wow, 25 euros. You can find those kind of cards for around 10 euros now. And i guess it won't be possible to use another card than nintendo's, at least for game saves. Lame.

offcourse but it also depends on what brand you get for the SD.

and ofcourse they add a powerbrick XD

yeah the SD card caught my attention also. i bought a 1GB SD card for my camera for $60 last month. unless there is something proprietary about it their SD card is a rip off.

Actually, the 5000 points with the controller is a real good deal. You're paying for 5000 yen worth of points for the virtual console and whatever else you can buy with them, but then the controller is effectively thrown in for free!

The $32 for 512MB (it should be uppercase B for byte) SD price makes sense. Best Buy's 512 MB cards run from $25 to $50 bucks. I'll be getting a 3rd party card though, so I can get a 2 or 4 GB card.

And I hope Component cables will be about $21 in America, too. That $40 cost for the Component cable for the Gamecube was annoying. Or what would be even better is if the Wii could use the GCN Component cables.
