How much does a Nintendo Wii cost?

Nintendo Wii is Nintendo’s hugely popular game console that entered the market in late 2006 and transformed the gaming world with its innovative brand of family-friendly interactive gameplay. In this article, I focus on the different packages and prices of the Nintendo Wii.

Who might want to purchase the Wii

Target audience
Because of the fact that the gameplay is basedon real-life situations, the idea behind the Wii is that it is a game console which should not exclude anybody, and it has certainly developed this reputation as a family-friendly console.
Therefore, the Wii is unique from other games consoles, especially from tose that have an 'insular', 'male' reputation. Where and when it is played
The Wii has been very successful in producing and marketing.
In fact, it is often played as a kind of fun novelty at gatherings/parties and it is also played by a disproportionately high number of families and women.
Its small sleek design also helps to this end.

Purchasing from the official Nintendo site

Prices from the official Nintendo site
The official Nintendo site is, at the time of writing (03.06.11), offering a special ‘new low price’ for the Nintendo Wii console.
It is selling it for $149.99 (approximately £91.59) which includes a Wii-control (plus ‘numchuk’ – joystick), successful, critically acclaimed Mario Kart racing game and the Wii Wheel.
(These prices and all others are correct as of 02.06.11) The game included in this package - Mario Kart
In Mario Kart, users pick any of the characters in the Mario franchise to compete with in fantastical kart races which feature power-ups, weapons, falling bridges and the likes.
Effectively, the Wii Wheel is a skeleton of a wheel into which the Wii remote can be inserted to give the impression of real-life steering.

Purchasing from others sites

Amazon and HMV offers
A similar offer is offered by Amazon for £99.99.
HMV offers the same price for a basic bundle, but with Wii Resort Pak Plus instead of Mario Kart.
It also offers another Wii bundle for £129.99. Ebay
There are also a variety of deals on Wii consoles available on other sites, including Ebay, which has new deals everyday.
You should however, be careful and analyse various offers from different sites since the prices are constantly being updated.
