Where to Find Nintendo Wii at a Bargain Price

By: Wendy Hearn

If you're looking for a good nintendo wii price, now that the Christmas rush is over you should be able to pick up some good deals on games consoles. Out of the three heavy hitters out there - the Sony PlayStation 3, the XBox 360 and the Nintendo Wii - the Nintendo Wii appears to offer by far the best value for money.

At just under $250, it is half the price of the most basic PS3 model and $150 cheaper than the XBox 360. However, to really get the most out of your Wii you will have to avail of at least some of the extra accessories on offer. Of course, you will also have to buy games, which retail around the $50 mark for more popular titles.

Extras you may want to add to the basic price include and extra controller (about $30), and extra Nunchuk Controller (about $20), extra memory (about $25) and a charging station/battery recharger for the remote controller (about $25).

As you can see, the cost of owning a Wii is more expensive than the retail price suggests. However, it is still a quality product that represents good value for money compared to its competitors.

So, before you buy your Wii try to decide what extra accessories you will need and see if you can find a package to suit you that provides good value for money. Once you know specifically what you want in your package it makes it easier to find a good price. It may be a good idea to price the accessories you need online first to get an idea of the overall cost. Then you can look for good-value packages, or you may find that it is cheaper to buy separately. As always, the advice is to shop around for the best deal.
