    Just got a Wii today (Midnight launch) Seems fun so far, good boxing action and whatnot [​IMG]

    But grabbed the Classic controller under the impression there were some free Wii-points with it to get you started, but it seems I have been misled..

    So.. No free Wii-points with the machine or classic Controller at all?

    What the hell gave you that impression? no, wii points are separate.

    the bloody store monkey advised me that there would be free Wii-points thrown in with the purchase with the Classical Controller in order to "Start you off"

    ... Made sence at the time, Damn-it!

    I remember hearing about some 5000 wii points + 1 classic controller combo packs going for $50 during the Japan launch but whether those were available anywhere else I dunno.

    Belgium: No Wii points in the classic controller, so i grabbed my wife's visa and got me some points.

    To be honest, i still preffer to use my old xbox with snes/pc-e/megadrive/nes emulators on.
    Better, free, no storage probs if you want to play all, etc...

    The classic controller is a little disappointment to.
    You have to connect the classic controller to your Wiimote, i would have suspected a connection over usb, now when you play classic games your wiimote lays a bit in the way.

    BUT: Wiisports ownz! same for Wiiplay [​IMG]

    I also got the classic pad, do you guys also think it feels cheap? I mean it looks nice but it just feels cheap, buttons are kinda meh, and the anolog lr have the same cheap Cube feel.
