I was expecting 150 at the most, so this is a bit more than i expected, although I am glad it comes with a game, and if the games are no more than 40 then thats pretty good.

I am also glad we don't have to wait until March. Last night IGN reported that Argos changed their date to March yeserday, and they wondered if this was anything to do with the recent events.

Has anyone seen the new Red Steel video on IGN?

Its a visual delight! I would not normally play a game like that, but with the Wiimote, i certainly would.

they've changed the PS3 details to March because i recently received an e-mail from them (i'm on the PS3 mailing list).......in that same e-mail they asked if i was intrested in the Wii :jmp:

249E is too expensive for a vamped up GameCube, with a controller less sophisticated than my Philips electric toothbrush.
And then complaining a PS3 is expensive, which has about 5 times more power, a Cell processor, Blu-ray etc, and ultra futureproof.
But okay, I have nothing against Nintentdo, because they deliver, maybe rich parents can make their children happy with the Wii, untill they see what damage the controller is going to cause in their livingrooms ff course.

Hmmm. For £20 more you can buy an Xbox 360 Core pack...

14 for 2000 points.

3.50 for a NES game
5.60 for SNES
7 for N64

I've got to say I love the fact that they will sell these in-store, saves messing about with credit cards etc online.

Well - I am pleasantly surprised by the price point - but I have heard some bad news. Apparently the NA and Jap versions are region free. The EU one is being encoded!!!! Why Nintendo why? Grrr. Looks like I will be getting the NA one after all. Poor EU gamers - always getting the shaft!!!

Although you have no games (extra 40). I would not advise anyone to buy the core pack. no hard drive, no HD cable, no Xbox live, no memory card(extra 30?) wired conroller, no headset or ethernet cable.
