Don't flame, I did a quick search and didn't see any topics about this. Anyways, I am so curious to see what type of "Wii Funds" there are for all you Cheap Ass Gamers and how much you are spending at launch? Are you going to stay cheap or are you going all out?

Basically I have $180 in GameStop credit that I forgot about (sold a PS2 for $70 a few months ago and an original DS for $70 along with Oblivion for 360). I also got $270 in store credit at Best Buy after I returned my PSP. So that means for that one night, my cheap ass will be getting its ass kicked...hard. I'm talking anal raping of my cheap ass.

(_O_) <--- Cheap ass after

I have $450 to spend, the $180 will be a down payment (or paying in full) on pre-ordering the Wii at GS and the $270 at Best Buy will net me at least 3-4 Wii games (Zelda: TP and Metroid Prime 3 are definate) along with a Virtual Console controller and at least 3 NES games, 3 SNES games, and 3 N64 games.

Oddly enough, I'm just as excited about getting Mario 64 for Virtual Console as I am Zelda: TP for Wii because I never played more than Mario 64 for more than 10 minutes combined in my entire life.

30 dollars after today is my current Wii funds. Like I said, I got sick of waiting for it without a date to put money towards the console with a pre-order and I hit up Sears/K-Mart clearance sales big time so I'm probably going to wait for most of the games I was on the fence about to drop in price rather then buy them new. My guess is that I'll end up picking up LoZ, Trauma Center, and maybe DBZ Tenkaichi 2, but beyond that, I'll wait for sales/price drops.

I have $329.93 in Half.com sales from the last couple of months (and more will be added) set aside for a Wii. I'm still not really sold on the whole thing, though, and might put off buying one until early 2007. New gadget lust might overtake me at launch and I'll buy one, but I haven't decided yet.

Well, I'm not entirely sure. I have approximately $750 in EB credit right now. However, there's already some money down on preorders (above that $750), which will need to get paid off, so...

Let's just assume I have 7 DS/GBA games to pay another $30 for. That leaves me with around $540.

So technically, $540 is my Wii fund. I already have $5 down on 5 Wii games, so those 5 will cost me in the vicinity of $250, leaving me almost $300 for the console. Assuming it's only $200, I'll have room for the VC controller and downloads plus maybe a 6th game. But I don't know for sure that I will be buying 6 full price games at launch. Hopefully we'll see Wii Sports, WarioWare and the like at proper price points.

Odds are good I will have some credit left over, which is good. Assuming I make good game choices at launch, I'll be able to revert to cheapass status and look for price drops and deals.

I'm still deciding whether or not I should make it my goal to go as long as possible without spending $599 USD (through sales and price drops), or try to spend $599 USD at launch.

GameRush credit + GameRush clearance + a good amount of crappy games of my own + EB trade-in deals = shitloads of credit.

I have several hundred dollars in the bank from my summer job, which is going to go towards the Wii console and games. It's nice living at home and not having to pay rent. :)

Word. It's nice having a job. And given that it's a launch event I feel justified in being non-cheapass. Just this once, of course.

I have $100 in credit at Gamestop, it will probably be used on a Wii if it's $150, otherwise I'm not buying one.

a few paychecks of mine from walgreens will more than cover what I need (after I pay for school art supplies :( ). after that, funds will go to ps3 savings, and then after that, gaming will have me in debt for a while.

Not sure, have to wait and see what it costs. I'd like to get a system, extra controller, classic controller, Zelda, and Wiisports (hopefully a pack-in). I'm guessing between $300-$350 needed at alunch. We'll see what my wife and I can work out. ;)
