    Default Looking to buy a wii.....but haven't a clue

    Looking to buy a wii for me and the missus to do a bit of regular exercise. Never owned one so haven't a clue what I need or idea of costs

    Need 2 controllers etc...

    Also can these things be flashed so they can play downloaded games etc?

    Thanks all and hope you all had a merry Xmas:-)

    Yes they can be "altered" to play anything you throw at them. I got one off a member here a few years back

    there ok but the family soon lost interest with them.

    They seem to go on FB groups for around the 25 mark and often include a couple of controllers.

    Not dusted mine off for a while but SD card is used to "modify" it to play all. Then attach either USB dongle or USB-HDD and store all games on this then launch games via USB loader menu.
    She will want a Wii - Board. Got this off FB for another tenner.

    Games can be downloaded as expected.

    Thanks to piggzy

    Wii U is the newer one and will cost a lot more. Don't think it is backwards compatible but may be corrected on that.

    imho the Wii U was shit unless you are into the Nintendo only stuff like Zelda and Mario which I am not.

    For keep fit stuff for the Mrs I would stick to the Wii classic not the U imho

    wii u is fully compatible with all wii software and controllers and can still be modified for wii and wiki content very easily

    Thanks to fanni

    I can let you have a wii for free - (postage) - I have one in the cupboard with all the cables and shit - think I have the fit board thing too. maybe even some games - maybe just lego indianna jones or whatever it was to mod it
    Let me know I will weigh it all up and let you know a price for postage only unless you fancy a trip down to pick it up?

    Thanks to prezzy

    yep my wiiu I can use as a wii or a wiiu - they are both pretty much redundant...

    No worries - it is set to languish in cupboard forever.
