New Wii Bundle to Hit British Shelves

Posted by James Newton

Grab yourself all sorts of new gubbins for £180

Yes, we've just reported that the Wii's trade price has dropped, but that's not all the good news we have for those Brits yet to take the plunge and buy one of those Wii machines. That's right - biding your time and sitting on the fence may just have got you a good deal, as Nintendo has let slip that the new standard UK Wii hardware bundle is about to get a lot juicier.

Soon upon opening a Wii console box you'll find a shiny new MotionPlus and copy of Wii Sports Resort alongside the standard Wii Sports and all the usual Wii paraphernalia one could dream of. Coming at the same time as the earlier trade price, this means you could grab both Wii Sports games and a MotionPlus for just a sliver under £180, a good deal if ever there was one.

As you'd expect, this new Wii Sports hardware mega-pack will replace the current one-game offering out there at the moment, but there's no word on if or when it will be made available in other territories. Still, it's a good day to be a UK Nintendo fan without a Wii!

I think this makes up for the price cut. But ya that would be pretty awesome if they just layered the awesomeness double time instead of at a certain pace or plan.

That's good for potential Wii owners, but this might be bad for NIntendo.
Now when someone gets a Wii they'll be like WOAH, 2 games that I can play forever with. Why buy any other games? It can go online? Meh!

All we need now is to hear what mianland Europe is getting. I'd imagine the same or just the console for €200. This deal is a really special alternative since in theory we should be getting nothing (look at how many £ you get for €200 and then do the same for €250), it feels a lot better than seeing prices in £ go up ("oh but they're going down because in €..."). Here hoping they can releasing it swiftly.

I guessed that something like this was going to happen. Nintendo wouldn't randomly raise the UK price for nothing.

Now we just need the Wiimote to not RRP at £32.99, Nunchuck at £17.99 and Motion Plus at £22.99 ... That's still a sting in the tail for people wanting 2+ players on their Wii!

Mhahahahaha. It isn't April fools day guys!!! What at top notch deal - maybe i should trade in my Wii with its 160 DLC games and Wii Sports WeSnort in for this wonder bundle and start afresh so I can waste even more money hoping Nintendo will do something right next gen.

I'll be chuckling over this news all day :D

Now that's more like it Nintendo.

Finally it appears you have your common sense boots on again.

Hopefully you use that same type of common sense thinking to release similar bundles in the other territories too.

Good move, though it makes the brief price increase even more stupid.

They should however just combine Wii Sports and Resort into a single pack-in game that includes all the sports from both of the games and also updates them all to use M+ as an option also.

I think that would make things a lot simpler and more convenient for the consumer.

It should first come out in Japan, then the U.S.A, then China, THEN United Kingdom. O.M.G
