    I got my Wii after being on a waiting list. But didnt realise they had a seperate waiting list for the controllers. Was no problem though I grabbed the Yellow Pages and phoned so Ididnt have to hunt round, and GAME (who I called first) said no worries they had hundreds. Iwarn you though to get another controller and nunchuck your looking at £50 and most games will require you to have the nunchuck.

    Apparantly I have a res. number just hoping it is there as they are not answering their bloody phones :o

    I have the classic controller & nunchuck

    Do I need another nunchuck - I got the impression it wasn't for many games but maybe for the likes of boxing etc which I won't be buying I'm a big kid :lol:

    One site I looked at have the Rayman & controller for £65 they had same deal for monkey balls but out of stock :( Although would like to get a hold of one now :D

    Well so far every game I have played requires the nunchuck. Rayman is better than Monkey Balls BTW I know someone with that who was really disappointed.

    Yup you can get 'classic controllers' which are designed for playing your old snes and stuff games on. You get the standard Wiimote with is what looks like a TV remote control which is your normal Wii controller and then the Nunchuck add on. and yeah Rayman requires this.

    I am sooooo envious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 :oops: I wanted one too, but OH said it is not possible at the moment.

    But I always thought you buy it and you have all hardware you need. It seems that you have to buy everything extra?!
