Just wondering ...

Does anyone know what is the price of a new Nintendo Wii in Singapore?
Any shops recommendations?

Cheers,

$659 is the common price around town for a package including 2/3 games (as well as the Wii sports of course). That includes one remote and nunchuk, you will have to buy any extras. The deals you can do on these vary from shop to shop but pretty much all the same.

Hi I bought it from Mustafa. 2 games+Wii sports, one remote for $659. The other places also had the same option like one shop selling in suntec. :D

I was wondering would a wii from North America work there since our prices are much lower and I could buy it here before I left.

Your thoughts?

I know that the electricity is different and thus I think I could just use an adaptor.


below is the link to wii prices in Canada...comes out to S$380 so almost S$300 less but comes with no games but games are pretty cheap.

Quite a few of the Wiis here in Singapore are the North American versions with transformers fitted. Yuo can buy the transformers here, just be sure to get to 110 - 220 volt version.

US games are readily available here (in fact they are the ones sold in the majority of shops).

Thus, from your response it would make sense to get a transformer and simply purchase the wii at home with a few games and bring it here. Am I missing something else?

If this is true, what other items are much cheaper outside Singapore that I should bring with me before I move? Also, why are electronics so much more expensive here, my friend bought a 46" 1080P Samsung LCD TV for S$2,200 and I am seeing it here for MUCH higher, what gives?

My friends bought my wii for my departure gift and also got me wii fit, so I know that it is available in Canada.
