Wii unboxing

January 17th, 2007

In the rest of this entry are the pictures from when I got my shiny new Wii back in December. I didn’t post the pictures at the time due to my laptop explosion. Warning: only geeks will care.

For the rest of you: the Wii is great fun, and I wish I had some more time to play it. It’s a large part of the reason that I haven’t been posting to the blog as much lately. And the Zelda game is just fantastic fun.

Wii 1

I got back from EB Games about 12:30am.

Wii 2

This is what I bought. Clockwise from top left: extra nunchuck controller, classic controller, Wii Play controller pack, Zelda: Twilight Princess game, Rayman: Raving Rabbids game, the “free” bag that came with the pre-order.

Wii 3

Opening the box, there are two trays inside.

Wii 4

The top tray contains Wii Sports and the controllers. Note the included batteries – bless all companies that include the batteries in the box.

Wii 5

The bottom tray contains the actual Wii unit, the stand, the sensor bar and the power supply.

Wii 6

The sensor bar, used to work out where the controller is relative to the TV. Pretty small – bit over a hand length.

Wii 7

The stand, so the Wii can be displayed proudly for all to see.

Wii 8

The Wii unit next to the stand.

Wii 10

All plugged in and ready to go.
