I had a text from a work colleague yesterday saying his son wants a buyer for his Wii, which is "...in great condition, has loads of games and extras plus a Wii Fit game and board, chargers carry case, you name it he's got it."
The wife and I could well be interested, but based on the info above, what would be a fair offer?
Well I'd want around £200-£250 , if he has loads of games and wii fit board in good working order that is. But it all depends on how many games. But yeah I agree have a look on ebay or ask the work colleague how much his son wants for it, that would be best and then decide. I'm thinking of getting rid of my wii too as it happens, don't use it now adays. They are fun though for parties and families.
Go to Game or Gamsetation websites or shops themselves and see the trade-in values for the machine. It won't be that high. Again, trade-in value of games, depending on what they are, can be determind from there too - guess about one third of new price on average, I'd say, roughly?
Well, for the sum of £200, I now have the following in my possession;
Wii console (inc. all leads and remote sensor) with stand, 2 remotes, 2 nunchucks and a virtually brand new carry case, with the following games;
Wii Sports, Rayman Raving Rabbids, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Big Brain Academy for Wii, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Billy the Wizard, Mario Strikers Charged Football, Warioware Smooth Moves, Boom Blox, Meet the Robinsons, Sing It (with microphone) and High School Musical 3.
I wasn't sure if my boys would like the last two, so I took them anyway.
Unfortunately, his sister took the Wii Fit before I got there, and being family, I suppose it's only fair.
I realise I could have got a new one cheaper, but with new you just get one remote by the looks of things, with 2 or 3 games, for around £180. I thought a second remote with 2 nunchucks and another 9 games wasn't too bad!
But like you've mentioned Awshum, as long as the boys are happy (unlike me with my crash-happy CoDMW2 on my spangly new PC!) that's what counts.
