    5 Games - $161.76 (£81.78 / €121.47) + CA$119.98 (£53.03 / €78.74)
    Wiimote - £22.49 ($44.49 / €33.40)

    Total - £322.21 roughly and the RRP over here atleast £450, so I've saved over £120.

    Wii Sports pack
    + Zelda TP - $490 ($525 paypal - £265)
    Customs - £58 ($133) *cries*
    Stepdown Adapter - £15 ($30)
    Excitetrucks - $57.50 ($60 paypal - £30)
    Rayman - $57.50 ($60 paypal - £30)

    ($xx paypal = using paypals exchange rate)

    Total: $786 USD - £397

    If I had waited till the UK launch I would have only paid £285 for a Wii and 3 games, but I figured it was worth spending an extra £100 to import a Wii as I have it a week and a half early and now I'll be able to import games for £10 less than what I'd pay for a PAL release and get it months sooner to boot (have fun waiting for Smash Bros Brawl PAL console owners! =P ).

    I was hoping to beat Zelda before the UK launch although I'm 15 and a half hours in so far and I'm only just about to start the third dungeon so it's not looking too great at the moment! =(

    I've decided to wait until there's a used one available. Should be cheaper AND hopefully will come with some VC games so might save a bit of money...if I can wait that long that is.

    If I don't wait then I'll get:
    Wii £179
    Extra remote with Wii Play £34.99
    Zelda TP £34.99
    Bomberman '93 £8??

    Prices according to local Virgin megastore.

    Won't need much else for a while as Zelda would last me for a bit as I work and have a girlfriend I live with and the extra remote will be needed for sessions with her (Bomberman, Sports and Play).

    I'll be paying uk prices for one of these. I'm waiting for some kind of value pack with I get a game or 2 and its really good value. I may wait and get a used one and buy the games second hand. I just don't think its worth what Nintendo are asking for it.
