We take a look online for the best deals on Wii console bundles

As one of the most popular video game systems of all time, the Nintendo Wii has been a huge success for it's developers. If you have somehow managed to avoid buying one up until now, some of the great Wii console bundles on offer at the moment mean that you've got absolutely no excuse to miss out any longer.

When it was launched back in September of 2006, the Nintendo Wii revolutionised video gaming for millions of people across the world. In the past it had been seen as a past time for spotty teenagers in dark rooms, but Nintendo's innovative control method and ingenious marketing meant that the system dragged video gaming out of the dark ages and into the realm of social acceptability.

For the first time ever we saw more women buying game consoles than men, and more middle aged people getting involved in playing games for the first time in the history of gaming.

The system caught the imagination of the public thanks to the fact that it used a motion control based system as opposed to the traditional method of using buttons and joysticks to control the on screen action. The fact that your character did the same movements as you on screen made the console a roaring success almost overnight.

And now, although the system is nearing the end of its life, it has still proven to be as popular as ever. When Nintendo announced that the follow up system, the Wii U, would be released at some stage in 2012 during their keynote conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles in June 2011, they also delighted the public by announcing that the original Wii would have its price slashed to just £129.99 RRP. Almost immediately, we saw a huge range of great value Wii console bundles springing up across the United Kingdom.

Among the most popular of these Wii console bundles is the excellent deal of a Wii console with a Motion Plus controller, as well as the very popular Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort video games for just £129.99 - a huge saving on the individual price for each component.

Alternatively, for an extra £10, gamers are now able to pick up a bundle including the Wii Console, a Wii Motion Plus Controller, Mario Kart Wii, Wii Sports and a steering wheel controller.

It may not have a huge amount of time left, but the current prices have shown that the Nintendo Wii is sure to retain its position as one of the most popular gaming systems out there for quite some time to come!

You can pick up a Wii console bundle for the prices listed above at your local Tesco, Asda, HMV, Zavvi, Argos or anywhere else that sells video game systems and accessories.
