Most trade ins are put on a gift card, they will give you cash but you get less this way.

Smile what does bundle includes?

Hi Guys

pls can any one tell me what items are included in bundle?
Does it include all the following items along with mario kar with wheel and fifa09
1. WII console
2. One Remote
3. Nuncheck Controller
4.Wii sports


Please can any confirm.

Also I have seen argos offer all above 1 to 4 items + WII play + one more remote for £189.99 in metro today. Is argos offer better or blockbuster offer? I am interested in having minimum two remotes & Nuncheck Controller for my kids.

thanks in advance

Yes blockbuster offer includes items 1-4 as mentioned
Well the wii console costs £179.99 & WII Play with remote is around £39.99 so you'd be saving £29.99 at argos.

I guess it depends which offer you want you save more £ at Blockbuster but you get your second wii remote at argos!

went to bb for £179.99 deal, did as poster suggested and swapped Fifa game ( got two girls) traded these for 2 very new looking, second hand games i.e a puppy pet game and a boogie game (game with microphone) all for £181 !!! so 4 games altogether...very chuffed. to OP
The assistant was so helpful I was staggered at the service! Only gripe is I will have to speak to the manager re getting my receipt sorted to indicate that it for christmas to post date the guarantee.

hello, is anyone able to confirm that you definitely get 2 remotes with the argos deal?

i can see that you get a remote when you buy wii play, but do you definitely also get 1 remote as standard with the console?

and another question! - how big is the wii when boxed? i need to buy one as a present and bring it with me on a plane to ireland - is it bulky?

thank you!! p.s. argos offering £10 voucher on spend over £100 so seems the best deal

Ok you always get one wii remote control boxed with console as standard so yesto your first question
And as for the box there not as bulky as an ps3/ xbox boxed there a bit wider than a laptop, about 15cm thick and are suprisingly light

Hi Pats,
Am new to posting comments, so please excuse, but having read some of the points above, why don't you trade in the 'Fifa 09' for 'Wii Play', so you will then have '2 remotes' for £179 including Mario Kart,

Does this make sense?

this does make sense the trade in store credit price for fifa 09 was £22 yesterday and wii play costs £34.99 so you would pay an extra £12.99 so total cost with console would be £192.98 and you would get both wii play with remote & mario kart with wheel!!
