stupid quick wii question

after searching, there are a million and one wii threads, hopefully i am not asking the same question previously asked...

what all comes with the wii? it seems that they are only sold in these random "bundles"... what is the standard bundle and what would i need to buy seperately? it looks like if i buy the sports package, i get the wii, the controllers, and sports games, right? after that, do i only need to buy new games or do each games need a different controller? excuse the ignorance! thanks!

and, for payment of your help, i offer this amusing, mildly NSFW video

also, if you need a second controller just buy the wii sports 2. you get the game and controller for the same price as a controller on its own

There is no Wii sports 2. I think you meant Wii Play.

Also, Wii Play is $50, so it's $10 more than a controller.

I'm not even sure what that means.

My question was rhetorical. The package is Remote + WiiPlay for $50. A stand-alone Remote is $40 so the game is essentially $10.
