Question Is this a good deal for a Wii?

Do you guys think this is a good deal? I haven't shopped around too much for a Wii, but my mom wants one for Christmas and whenever I have asked a store if they have them, they're always out and never know when they're getting more in. Any input or other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

A regular Wii is $225 at Gamestop, and an extra nunchuck is $25. Wii-play and the super nintendo pack should be around $50. That's $300 before taxes, but just get the system and an extra controller. Let them get their own games.

Give me a dollar.

Thanks everyone! Wal-mart always advertises that they have them, but "just ran out" when you get to the store. I guess buying it online then picking it up in the store would be best? I'll let my brother buy the extra controllers & a couple of games and I'll get the console. I hate Christmas LOL

Last year when I bought one no one had them in stock, I checked like 10 places. I then went to the Circuit City in Lake Worth and they had like 5 because no one ever goes there, lol.

Sweet, I might try that. I'd much rather do everything online so I don't have to deal with the morons, also known as the general public.

Just go to the store, lazy. No shipping costs either.

My mom wouldn't want a used one, I would buy it if it was for me though.

that 14 games thing is a bit of misdirection. theat system only actually comes with two games; wii sports, which has five different sports on it (which is included in the price of the system, because all come with it), and wii play, which has fourteen different minigames and is only fifty dollars (and wii play comes with a wiimote).

Yeah I noticed it was really only 2 games, but I didn't know that the sports one already comes with it. Thanks!! Does the console come with 1 remote already too?
