Nintendo Wii Bundle with New Super Mario Bros. Wii and a Mario Music CD - Black
wii u > this wii
the wii u is coming 2012 so i wouldn't even waste my money on this... just wait for the wii u that has an amazing controller with a screen on it.
I traded in my Xbox 360 in for this because i wasnt really into the games that were avabile for that console. I have always owned nintendo productes, my first being a gamecube and then a ds lite. I was so happy with the preformence with those systems that i thought that the wii would be as good. I was right! I love my wii!! And because it comes with a 50 dollar game your really getting a slim black wii with the controler with motion plus for 100 bucks! I couldnt reist. Even though I know that they are going to come out with a new wii in about a year i figured i wasnt going to spend more than 200 on a console and with it being on sle and the big varity of games that are already out i bought it. I think i will be very pleased with it.
The Brand new wii models are defective!!!
So I recently bought a brand new Wii. You would assume that it would be in perfect working order. No, the new Wii's are not capable of reading duel layered discs....which some of the Wii games are in fact duel layered discs. So why would you make and put out a new model of something that you knew would not work with all of your products? Well, the people at Nintendo don't know either, in fact even the person I spoke with told me he thought it was pretty stupid too and even his manager didn't understand what Nintendo was doing. So the solution once you buy your brand new console is that you have to call Nintendo and then you have to SHIP YOUR NEW CONSOLE TO THEM SO THEY CAN FIX IT AND THEN MAIL IT BACK TO YOU IN 2-3 WEEKS! This is for all New Wii's! If you're not sure then google it. You would hope they'd be willing to compensate you in some way especially since doing this is going to cost you time and money since they don't supply you with packaging to do so......NOPE. Get a PS3 or something....the PS3 move works more accurately anyhow.
I have grown up with games almost all my life, and the super nintendo was one of the first systems i had so ive been in the nintendo family for quite some time. Overall this new re-desinged wii is pretty good for the value sure i wasnt to happy about it not being backwards compatible but then again who really cares atleast you can still download virtual titles from other platforms from back in the day like super nes and nintendo 64 and also if your a hardcore gamer and like shooters and call of duty etc then dont buy a wii buy a ps3 or 360 if u have both then good for you but other than that i like this system alot because when im bored of my other games on my 360 i can atleast get away with a mario game that i know will have me laughing and enjoying time with friends and family instead of playing 1 player first person shooters by myself all day
I got this for me and i love it
It is a nice black finish and it is a little on the pricy side but you are geting a bundle. and the games are priced good so have fun all you gamers
Heres some IMPORTANT Information on this bundle. This model does not play Nintendo Game cube games! Which really stinks. This model does not play Wii classic or NGC controllers. Which is another thing that stinks! So it only plays Wii games. The Super Mario bros game is great though, and has tons of hours of gameplay! And great with friends of all ages! The Black design looks real cool, but the games arent that great. If your a party gamer, and friends gamer, then i reccomend this! But if not, then theres no point in getting this.
Endearing franchises and the best overall value
Don't let the disgruntled Xbox360 and PS3 users discourage you from this system. The black Wii system does lose it's Gamecube backward compatibility, but it's not likely you are buying this system to go back and play games that are more than 5 years old. The system still has a large library of Wii games and don't forget Wii Ware and the Virtual Console for exclusive Wii gaming and classic games from the 8-bit NES to the N64 and just about everything in between. To sweeten the deal, Gamestop is offering Metroid: Other M as a bonus for purchasing this system so right out of the store, you will have 2 of the best games for the system. For what it was designed to do, it does it better than the rest (No Red Ring of Death or Yellow Line of Death like you will eventually get with the Xbox360 and PS3). The system might not have backward compatibility or DVD playback, but it's likely you already have a DVD player if not Blu-Ray player and if you really wanted to play Gamecube games, those systems are a dime a dozen now. Don't cheat yourself out of those Zelda, Mario and Metroid games and get in on the action while the bonus game is still being offered.
Gamestop employees were great got home got it setup and was able to play in minutes great fun for the whole family.
great deal, amazing console, some of the best games ever. Only get this if you do not want gamecube support. If you want game cube support, go for the mario kart bundle.
Do not buy this version of the Wii
This version of the Wii has no GameCube compatibility and loses all the GameCube controller ports/memory card slots as well. This not only eliminates a large portion of possible games to play but it also affects games such as Super Smash Bros Brawl which controlled much better with a GC Controller. Look for a Wii system where the console is portrayed standing up verticle, not horizontal for backwards compatibility.
