Saw this, it's really sad... the man deserves a lot of respect. He pretty much shaped and saved the video game industry, not to mention bringing a lot of my favorite Nintendo characters to life.

RIP

This is probably one of the biggest deaths in the world at this time. He was the innovator of such a good company and he (almost) knew what games would skyrocket at the day of the sale. As just like everything, I think Nintendo won't even be close to the same.

Well you need a complete Nintendo Wii with power supply controllers and IR interface and games to play any.

Based on the grammar, resurrection of an old thread, and being a new account with this as the very first post I'm going to assume this is just some sort of spambot. However I need some amusement so I'll bite.

If you're looking to get a Wii at this time you might as well just go and get a Wii U. Here's a link to it from the amazon's UK site: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-Wii-32GB-Premium-Pack/dp/B008B5YB4W/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1389881901&sr=8-7&keywords=nintendo+wii. You're looking to spend about 220 pounds for the system alone, with each game for the Wii/Wii U costing 15 - 40 pounds each. A Wii U plays all the Wii games as well as Wii U games, and has an online store where you can buy and download games from older consoles (NES, SNES, etc).

The system is really easy to set up, just follow the instructions included in the box.

Yep, spambot. The IP address from India is a dead give away.
