I have 2 Wiis. I never play either of them. It depends on how much you're gonna play them.

I'd buy it then trade it all in to GameStop.

I kinda think its to much...but I'd probably turn in 3/4 of it to the exchange.

How much do you get for that stuff in an exchange? Id like NHL 13 for PS3 and if I could dump a Wii that'd be cool.

Well the wii was first out and really popular and you couldnt get it anywhere I had a buddy working on a military base and they had them there, $150 tax free. He sent two to his parents house, where I picked them up and exchanged the money. Felt like I was doing something illegal.

Long story short 3 years later I sold it for 150 :fist: Booya

Prob don't get a whole lot for them these days. I'd say it's probably too much.

looking at how much you would get for it if you traded it is silly. It's not an investment. It's a game. If you're going to use it enough to justify $150, get it. If not, don't. Nothing wrong with asking him if he'll sell it for $125 though ;)

I think for everything it's packaged with that's a fantastic deal, but if you're not the kind of person who would play it there's no reason dropping $150 on it just because it's a good price

That. If the stuff works fine, that's one heck of a deal. Bnootb is around $150 with just a single game included.

it's not a bad deal. Even if you bought it and didn't like a few months later, you could probably sell off the games for $10 per and the system for whatever and make a profit.

I still have mine. I rarely play it. I was into it for probably the first 6 months, but with being away from home and forgetting to pack it when I was away, I eventually stopped playing it.

When I'm away from home I think about getting out the guitar or turntable for some Guitar or DJ Hero. When I'm home, in the unlikely event my children are not monopolizing the TV, I'm usually too busy or tired to do it. It's a fun system. See if he will knock $20 off and take the deal.

I got DJ Hero 2 for Christmas 2010 and still haven't finished DJ Hero 1 yet.

Sold my Wii last year in a package deal. I had a little bit less in # of games and didn't have some of the other extras...but did have some things that package didnt. I either got 150 or a little less...somewhere over 100 though...maybe 120-150. A year later, I think you can get it for less. Buy maybe if you don't want half the games and can trade them in or sell them on craigslist you can make it worth your while.

looking on PGH Craigslist - seems a lot of people are offering Wii package deals with games/accessories. Check them out and maybe you can get a better idea. No one really pays the asking price and some of the packages start below 150 and have some good stuff with them.
