I’m not sure anyone saw the Wii phenomenon coming. Certainly not MS or Sony, who still seem a bit befuddled by Nintendo’s apparent rabbit out of a hat. And if you don’t already own a Wii, or better yet, if you’re that creepy Target dude, the one jockeying against 12yo’s for playtime on the demo unit, this deal is definitely for you.
First off, Wii’s aren’t exactly easy to find… ask any desperate parent. Secondly, the six bundled games in this deal aren’t all horrible. Low on the list are Crash of the Titans, Geometry Wars: Galaxies, and Spyro: The Eternal Night. Disney’s High School Musical: Sing It! (w/ Microphone) get’s thumbs up if you happen to own earplugs, while Trauma Center: New Blood, and Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaro’s Treasure get decent grades from our office gamers. Typical of bundle deals I guess.
A 10 game “2008 Totally Fun” bundle for $699 is also available and includes Resident Evil 4, Tiger Woods PGA Tour ‘08, LEGO Star Wars, Pokemon Battle Revolution, Big Brain Academy, Super Paper Mario, Mario Party 8, Super Mario Galaxy, Rockstar Presents Table Tennis, Bully: Scholarship Edition.
Both deals include the standard pieces: Wii Sports game, sensor bar, AV cable, Wii stand, wireless Wii Remote, and a Nunchuk controller.
Sale price: $499.94 + s/h
