After resisting for ages, I've finally decided to take the plunge and buy a Wii for my family.
I've been searching since November for the best deal, including bidding on several eBay auctions.
When deciding what value to bid up to, it is always worth considering the best prices to buy new.
I have found John Lewis to have the best offer (true of end Feb).
You can buy on-line and have it delivered to
store or home for FREE.
They were offering NEXT DAY collection from store (and even NEXT DAY delivery to your address for a small price like £7).
They are selling a bundle :
Nintendo Wii Console + Sports Pack + Wii Fit + Balance Board
They are limiting it to one per customer, and there are limited stocks.
You obviously get your guarantee with that too, so bare that in mind when bidding on second hand sets.
Happy gaming ;)

The remarkable Nintendo Wii makes you feel less like a player and more like you’re in the game. The Wii’s unique remote control puts you right in the middle of the action. Forget about pushing a button to start a golf backswing. Wii lets you swing the club!
The console arrives in a cool compact design and can be displayed either vertically or horizontally. Its single self-loading media bay will play 12cm Wii discs as well as 8cm Nintendo GameCube discs. It also boasts 512MB of internal flash memory, 2x USB 2.0 ports and built-in WiFi capability.
Shaped like a TV remote, the Wii controller has been designed to be easily used by beginners and pros alike. Sensors determine where the Wii Remote's position is in 3-D space, which means that racing-game steering and a tennis swing, for example, are done through movements of your hand rather than by just your thumbs.
The remote features a speaker, a rumble effect and an expansion port and can be used within 10m of the console. Up to 4 Wii remotes can be connected at once via Bluetooth (this pack includes 1 remote, others available separately).
Wii Sports game
Enjoy 5 different sports experiences, using the Wii Remote to provide a natural, intuitive and realistic feel. Includes Tennis, Baseball, Golf, Bowling and Boxing.

Wii Fit brings together the whole family for a fun fitness workout!
The game is divided into four categories: Aerobic exercise, Muscle Conditioning, Yoga Poses, and Balance Games. Utilising the unique Wii Balance Board for a wide variety of fitness exercises, you can set your own personal goals and track your progress with up to 8 members of the family.
How about some step aerobics, stepping off and on the Wii Balance Board to some funky music? Or heading on-coming soccer balls and avoiding other objects by leaning forward and back? Or why not experience some alpine thrills in the comfort of your own living room thanks to the ski jumping game?
You'll enjoy up to 40 different activities with Wii Fit and furthermore, the game allows you and other players to compare fitness levels by using its own channel on the Wii menu.
