Price on the Wii Now?

:icondesert-poppy:
Desert-Poppy Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
Hey everyone, I was just wondering now that the Wii U is out, how much is the Wii? I'm a college student so I don't have much money, but I love playing classic games every now and then. Yesterday I got out my SNES and put in Kirby Super Star. I had to turn it on and off like 9 times in order to make it work, not to mention blow out any dust. Thanks in advance, and hope you all had a great holiday! :)

You can buy a refurbished one for Gamestop for 80 bucks. Add a ten dollar, year warranty and if it craps out, you get another one. So it's pretty much $10 Wiis after the first one.

$90 is better than $150 for a brand new one without any bundle. ;)

I can believe it. Can probably find it relatively cheap on craigs list.

Hmm that's still a bit high for me. XD I was figuring since the Wii U is out and all the Christmas sales it would be cheaper.

As I said, that was quite a bit ago. It may be cheaper by now ofc.

Well, you can get a used/refurbished first model for cheap. If you don't care about GCN, then you can get a family edition. If you really wanna screw yourself over, you can import a Wii Mini.

Oh shoot I just read further. It says only Wii games. So I couldn't play all the retro games on it. Too bad. :(

Also, no Wi-Fi, no SD card, flimsy lid, and Canadian Exclusive.

I could but I don't like used ones. I've bought a few used games and sometimes they don't work and stuff. Also, not every gamer keeps their games clean >< XD
And GCN? You mean the game cube? I have a cube.
A Wii Mini? Wow haven't heard of that one....*does a bit of research* Oh hey! It's only 100$ The highest price I was looking for! Thanks for the info!
Btw, love your avatar! :D
