Not even that, you can get a Wii in Toys R US with Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort and Super Smash Bros Brawl for £129.99, and even the new red 'Mario Anniversary' one only costs £149.99 in Asda with New Super Mario Bros, Wii Sports, pre downloaded Donkey Kong and a Wiimote with inbuilt Motion Plus.snowkatt wrote:oh they wil sell but after the first big explosion the novelty wears off

150 for a controller or 179 for a whole console ?
My biggest concerns with Kinect (as I've mentioned elsewhere) are that it can't currently detect movements in your wrist or fingers as far as I'm aware so it's not very good with games that require more precision like table tennis (there is a table tennis game on Kinect Sports, but apparently it's very basic because of these limitations)...in that sense, I can't see how it'll work properly with a FPS game either. and also, how exactly do you move your character around the game world? Sure, you can stand on the spot and move all your limbs about, but that'll only ever be good for minigames. So far, the comprimise is having your avatar standing on a moving platform and every game being 'on rails'.....urghhh.
Playstation Move I think is decent (better than I thought it'd be), but the cost of a complete set up is currently a real problem with it, and I still don't think it really does anything a Wiimote can't do (less, in fact as the main controllers don't have built in pointer functionality, and can't be turned on their sides and used as conentional controllers).
I don't think the Wii has anything to worry about, TBH.
