    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?

    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.
