But still $150nz over priced here, the northern hemisphere price drops never
came to this part of the world.

In the US the Wii sell for the Same price as the Xbox arcade..

According to that, Wii in the UK goes for between 179-199 = NZ$410-455

PB Tech have the Wii for NZ$460, so between NZ$5-50 difference, not NZ$150

Did you take the VAT on this stuff is some 17.5 %

I have fund 2 listed at 135.99 and 134.99 the 199 price is for
added Bundles, not just a standard Wii

>PB Tech have the Wii for NZ$460, so between NZ$5-50 difference, not NZ$150



The Warehouse is selling the Wii with Wii Sports Resort for free

at $365.




It was posted in the Dom 29th Sept that there would be a $70 price drop,
there never was

Xbox Arcade $199.99US

Wii $199.99US


So using those figures the Wii is some $150 to $190 over priced here.
