Knowing your Wii console and accessories

I know, I know its only 40 days before I get to open my Wii! Pardon our Wii, its for the kids not for me. I have to remember to keep telling myself that.

Fish are friends not food!

As I wait for Santa to deliver our Wii all I have is friend and families who can share their experiences of owning an playing with their Wii’s.   So, here’s a breakdown of all the components that you’ll get from your basic Wii package.

1. The Basic Wii Console

The Basic Wii Console and controllers 

Price varies depending on what you want, but if you’re looking just for the base model. It’ll cost around $249 w/o taxes

2. The basic Wii package will get you two controllers (1- Wii Remote & 1 – Nunchuck), no fun when you’re planning on playing with your family. 

The two main Wii controllers a Nanchuck and Wii Remote

Controllers prices also vary depending where you shop.  The Wii Remote is priced roughly around $30 and the Wii Nunchuck controller under $20, again w/o taxes.

3. Now I’ve been given some great tips to getting some extra controllers.  First as always shop around again you’ll save a few dollars here and there and in today’s economy every penny counts. 

Second tip is buying bundled packages

 The MarioKart game, wheel, and wii console

The Wii’s MarioKart is one of a few games that includes an extra Wii Accessory, the Wii Wheel.  Another title is the Wii Play with Remote, which includes a Wii Remote

5. Another key component included in your basic Wii Package is the Wii Sensor Bar:

This bar mounts either atop of your TV or below.  It has two infrared lights that are used to calibrate the distance between you and your TV with the Wii Remote.  It’s best to be around 6-10ft away from the sensor with your Wii Remote.  The sensor bar is only for a maxium of 4 Wii Remotes.

6. In final other compenents included in the Wii Basic Package are:

– Wii AV cables (RCA Cables)

– Wii AC Adapter

– Wii Console Stand

– Wii Sports Video Game- Which introduces you to all the Wii Remote capabilities
