It doesn't come with anything else except the Nunchuck (unless you get a bundle pack). It's as easy as plugging in any other console. It does come with a manual if you have trouble setting it up though.

Specifically, the package contains the
  • console
  • Wiimote
  • Nunchuck
  • console stand
  • Wii Sports
  • power cable
  • standard AV cable (componate cable sold seperately)
and that's about it.

Yes, or very similarly. I'm thinking that the GC AV cable may be compatible with it, too, like how the N64 cable works with the GC...

Apparently N64/GCN cables won't work, the plug is different.

Through Gamestop/EB, Nintendo.com, and Best Buy. I believe Circuit City will be carrying them as well.

Though it might actually be fortunate, from the technical stand point of bandwidth and such.

Oh yes! The Wii come with a sexy sensor and an equally arousing sensor bar stand.

$250 American, a rather good price for all it comes with.

That all depends on where you live. If you live in America, it costs $250 (plus tax).

EDIT: Hungry Gamer beat me too it.

I have to disagree. The price seems a little unfair. If Nintendo would have added a Wii Classic controller to come with it; then I wouldn't complain. Unfortunately, it doesn't.

The system itself (with out the Wii-mote ans sensor bar) should be about.... I say $160. The Wii-mote is wireless, as well as motion sensing, pretty good technology, plus the unneeded Wii, and sensor bar stand, and lastly the "free game."

The Wii system itself costs less than $99 to manufacture. Not a good deal. But who really cares at this point. It isn't going to change. At least the DVD player will help make the price look a tiny bit better.
