Mum thinks $400 is too much for a video game console, which is why I can't get one this year. She thinks EVERYTHING is expensive. Who agrees? icon_confused.gif

Opinions?

I think its cheap actaully. Maybe you should spend more time trying to earn pocket money or get a job rather than making 27 posts per day icon_wink.gif

Your mum does not play games does she?
If not, then your in luck as your mum (Mrs Solid_Snake) is exactly the type of user that Nintendo is trying to attract. If your mum thinks it is too expensive, ask her to call Nintendo and tell them to drop the price to $299. Ask her to pick one up for me at that price whilst she's at it. icon_wink.gif

Seriously, the Wii is over priced no question.

Hey man I didn't get all the latest new console stuff when I was young.....I only had a master system (with 1 game which I got for my birhtday and 1 game which an aunt gave me...parents refused to buy anymore) when my friends has nes, snes, megadrive and master system......and when the Playstation came out I paid $800 of hard earned paper round money for it. So I can understand your pain but honestly you're gonna need to figure it out on your own....stop hassling your mum for it....it's not her problem.

What a dumb thing to say....if she can't afford 1 at $400....what makes you think she can afford 2 for $598? icon_rolleyes.gif And no it wasn't a very funny joke either.

I'm not hassling her for it. I've asked her once to get one for me and that's all.

I don't go to school. I do Open Access, in other words I've done my work for today.

Too much. Don't bother. Buy the real thing.

Better to just get a SNES than a Wii to begin with. You will need $25 for a console and haggle for sub $10 per game cart.

Result: Lots of fun, lots of coolness, very reliable, and after 3 years you can sell it in a snap and get your money back. Wii will be selling for less than $299 by then I guarantee it!

I take it that Solid_Snake is the palgn spammer formerly known as Ashleigh ?

( Both girls, Both from the same town, Both complaining about there mothers not buying them anything. )

Im with ugh, I never got consoles when they first came out. I used to save for months at a time just to afford 1 game.

I really don't care what you do. And I'm NOT spoilt. I can't even get a PS2 game. Oh, the only reason I want a Wii is to replace my PS2.

Oh, and I WAS Ashleigh. I accidently made my account inactive.

Remember though that Wii is not $400, it's $399.95. That's a very big difference. There is know way I would have bought it for $400 icon_confused.gif

Look i don't wanna be rude but how is anything anyone of us says gonna change your situation? Is you mum gonna come on this forum and read all our posts and go "Gosh! Maybe my daughter was right....maybe she does deserve a Wii!"?! Seriously....how about you earn the thing! Do stuff for your mum....help her out! Stop whining and do something.

And sorry I didn't mean to be rude by calling you a brat....just this comment here:

Mhm, I know what you mean. I CAN'T force her to get a Wii for me, so my best bet is to shut up about the whole thing. I don't really need a Wii; I have a perfect PS2 at home.

It's not that I think you shouldn't get a Wii (infact if you do your mum might like it and she might buy games for you and her later down the track)....i'm just saying nothing comes free these days so suck up to her hard or help her out....give her a reason to give you one.
