Mate you get what you pay for. Wii is hardly 'cutting edge' technology, aside from the Wii-mote of course.

Whether you feel its 'money well spent' will depend on the games you like. With the Wii you'll get a fancy next gen controller, but dont be expecting next gen graphics. You'll need a PS3 of 360 for that (I cant wait for Lost Planet on the 360. Amazing).
BTW- buying a 2nd controller set up for the Wii could prove expensive when you ad the extra peripherals for the Wiimote. Fancy controllers arent cheap you know. Makes you wonder how much of your $399 went into the console hardware (ie your GCN v1.5)
