    This just about perfectly demonstrates the kind of bullshit I am totally fed up with out of all the little bitches of the internets ... whether they be here, on GAF, Maxconsole, or wherever.

    Enjoy.

    Wow that made me laugh actually.

    I still don't get the complaint about the prices for the system. Wasn't it originally rumored to be $250 in the US? The fact that for one day the rumor it was only $199 shouldn't mean anything. 250 is still less then a ps3 or a 360.

    The only gripe that may be justified is the selling of the controller in two parts, that it will cost 60 for a complete nunchuck.

    [​IMG] sad, but o so deliciously funny.

    and about the controllers, i paid 40+ bucks on my wireless logitech's, so the wii-mote isnt going to bankrupt me, so i'm good.

    while a lot of people are looking at it from the point of view that a "complete" controller costs 60usd, what they should realise is that nintendo is one of the only companies to offer the necessary add-ons, and bundle them in with games at no additional costs. (e.g. the microphone which came bundled with mario partys 6 and 7 and odama).

    yes, the nunchuk "accessory" costs you 20usd, but the wii remote itself is priced at 40usd (just a bit more than a wavebird controller, while offering a bunch more in capabilities). remember too, that not all games require the nunchuk add-on (excite truck, warioware, etc...)

    I have the feeling that we'll be seeing some pretty cool add-ons for the wii remote and you'll get at least one of them free with the games that support the remote add-on.

    the cartoon is making fun of the ranting we saw about Wii a couple weeks ago, but I see that crap here all day, every day. Look at the ridiculous comments in the "Supercard Rumble announced" thread. oh well.

    Ubisoft is already planning to bundle a steering wheel attachment with GT Pro Series. Looks like a crap game and a pointless peripheral, but it does further your argument.

    as a true racing fanbuy, there is nothing I've wanetd more for games than a wireless wheel.
    it's true the Ubisoft games (4x4 somethign and GTpro) that come with the thrustmaster wheel look shite, you will all be beggin for a few of those steering wheel frames when F zero or mario kart finally makes Wii debuts!!

    I don't understand how anyone can complain about $250 when you compare it to the price of the xbox 360 and PS3.

    $215 core system is a good price, $250 just for 5 crummy tech demos hardly seems worth it, you will see Wii Sports in bargin bins 3 cents each by next year

    Ithink the price is just right , anything less then that would live me with a crappy cheapo system with chips that would melt down after only a few weeks of use.
    I know that I will get an exeptional value from the price, an almost unbreackable system and lots of good entartaining hours - Guaranteed.
    I will buy on louch day a Wii, 2 extra games(probably Zelda an Max Steel) and an extra controller - For sure.
