My Wii just cant spin discs anymore, It needs to Get repaired. it DOES have Gamecube Backwards compatibility though.

So for me it's Either:
Repair Wii for $75, get Wii U for $XX9
or
Get Wii U for $XX9, and buy a Used Gamecube (Which Might not even work)

I dont know if I can go without it for the next 3 months, Ive played everything worth Playing on my PS3, so Now Im just having a ton of Fun with My Wii and 3DS, and... This Happens...

But it cant play Gamecube games, and I would think a repaired Wii would Play GC better than a used Game cube, but its the more expensive option...

if you want to play GC games then either get a GC or i guess you would have to repair your Wii

Why would you pay 75$ to repair a Wii when you can buy them cheaper than that?

They cost like $150 right now for a system without GC compatablity don't they? and Virtual Console and Save Data.

Buy a GCN for $10 on amazon, and then buy a Wii for $50 on Ebay.

$75 just sounds way too expensive. What type of repair do you need exactly?

If this is true, then it actually beats out buying a WiiU or repairing it.
