Well, with all the talk of shortages and accessories and games being in short supply. What did you all manage to get with your consoles now that Wii has officially landed here in the UK?

All that talk of the wii being nice and cheap (comparativley) is one thing but taking into account all the games extras to go with it, it has managed to mount up to being yet another bloody expensive console launch for me.

I was lucky enough to get the following yesterday morning:

Console £180
2x Wii play £70
2x Nunchuks £30
2x Classic controllers £30
Zelda £40
Red Steel £40
Rayman raving Rabbids £40
Monkey Ball Bannana Blitz £40
Tony Hawks Downhill Jam £40

Total £510

Had a quick shot of wii sports last night but the missus has now packed it all away for xmas. To be fair a large portion of that stuff is my xmas gift but to those that are just buying one for the hell off it. It certainly puts a nice wee dent in the wallet.

With everything being regulated to preorder customers and seemingly everything else being thin on the ground, what did the rest of you peeps manage to pick up, try to pick up and not get etc?

I went for pretty much the cheapest Bundle at Toys R Us yesterday morning so for £229.99 I got a Wii with 1GB SD Card and a copy of Red Steel.

They had plenty of games and accessories including Wii Play but I wanted something to get when I trade in my Gamecube next week plus the only other thing I really want is the RGB Scart Cable.
