Seems to be a normal price.
I bought mine last year.
for 249 I got a console, WII sports, one controller, one N-chuck.
for 49, I got the Wii play pacakge, which came with an adidtional controller (pretty good deal, I thought)
So for 300 , I am short one N-chuck..
I don't think you need a cooling station.
And one dirty little secret is that I recharge my alkaline batteries, in a little solar battery charger..I have a set of 12 batteries that I cycle
through that charger.
I was surprised that it worked on alkalines..But it does..seems that you can get 10 to 12 recharges on them before throwing them away..I just set up
the little charger by the window, and only allow small amounts of light to strike the surface.
I actually found the same charger that I use:
I think what I do is NOT recommended. These are standard alkalines..
not the rechargeable type..but it works..
