N-Sider.com has a handy "Nintendo Wii Calculator", to easily figure out how much you'll spend on launch day.



Here is the American version.

Here is the Canadian version.



(If this is accurate, looks like I have to save up $513.99.  That's in Canadian dollars, with 6% tax, and includes a second WiiPointer, second Nunchuk, two Classic Controllers, Zelda: Twilight Princess, and 2000 WiiPoints.  Splitting the cost with my brother, that's almost exactly $257.  Not bad.)



EDIT: If the price doesn't update when adding/subtracting games, choose a different tax rate and then reselect the proper one.

My brother's birthday is Nov. 14, so if I can't find something for him for that day, I suppose I could pay for a larger chunk of that $513.99.



That's all the response here?  It's like these forums are very "meh" on the Wii.  How sad.  Sad

To be fair, I'm very "meh" on any actual console I have no money for...

Well, I live in The Netherlands so I can't really use this calculator. Except for the SNES, I've never bought a console in the first few months that it came out. Most of my friends usually do though, so I tend to go to their place and try some games before I buy it myself Smiley

If I lived in the USA, I would spend something around $350. That includes one retro controller, Zelda and maybe 1000 VCPs (virtual console points).



I figure I'll be plenty entertained by Zelda for a while, no need to go on a spending spree.
