If you haven’t yet Wii-ed

I know that most folks in the market for a Nintendo Wii have already bitten the bullet and made the purchase, but just in case you’ve been waiting or are on the fence: Yes, it’s true that there are hardly any “deals,” per se, on them. The Wii remains so in demand, Nintendo doesn’t need to offer discounts to sell them. However, there are occasionally bundle deals, and right now Amazon is offering the Wii Play bundle for $299.

Basically, you’re getting the console, an extra game (which is actually several different games, just like the standard Wii Sports that comes with the console), an extra wiimote and nunchuck, for $299. You’re saving a few bucks and getting stuff you’d probably buy, anyway.

And then you’ll be sucked into the Wii Dimension, and we can compare bowling scores. Hee.


  1. I’ve recently started contemplating the possibility of maybe getting us a Wii. Maybe. I’m in the early stages of indecision, so deals like this are torturous.

  2. We’ll be able to afford a Wii (even a deal one) when they’ve moved on the the Wii-V or so. 😛

  3. Thanks, Mir! I have indeed been on the fence, so I went ahead and sprung for it 🙂 Now I’m a step closer to that Wii Fit I’ve been pining for.

  4. I can’t get the deal to show up for me- I add it to my cart and go to checkout, but it’s charging me $312…what am I doing wrong?

  5. My personal best bowling is a 255. My husband got a perfect 300 over the weekend. Yes, it was an exciting weekend.

  6. Hey Mir-
    Thanks, I don’t know what I was doing wrong (kept clicking on free shipping, and there’s no tax here in AL)….but I kept emptying my cart and starting over- and finally it said $299.99! Persistence pays off. 🙂 Thanks for the deal. 🙂

  7. Hey, buy.com also has refurbished remotes and nunchucks right now. There are never, ever deals on those.
