    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.
  • karie
    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

    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?
