I'm thinking about selling my Wii U.

Wouldn't any talk at all about why hes selling it be considered trolling on this board?

I'm hoping that if I can create a mitigated discussion that focuses on the Wii U's negative points, some of the rabid fanboys might follow suit, and settle down a little. But who am I kidding? That would never happen, this is the internet.

Better do it soon. Come E3 second hand prices will drop even further. If you wait until fall/winter when PS4/720 are about to come out you'll barely get anything.

As I tell every single person who is think about selling their hardware, especially hardware that is still viable, DON'T.

It is a waste of money and you may end up wanting to re-purchase the sold hardware down the line for some hotly anticipated game, resulting in even more wasted money.

If you really want a PS4, get a part-time job and save, save, save.

Box up the Wii U and throw it in a closet if you're not interested in it right now and just focus on other things.


You're basically just telling him the gamble. Put the Wii U in the closest in case it has a super huge hit, in the mean time let it depreciate in value and hope that day comes.

=P

No, you didn't read far enough.

I'm telling the TC not to sell the hardware at all. Boxing it up puts it out of sight, out of mind until that "big hit" eventually comes to pass.

And when it does, the TC will not have to go out and spend more money just to buy the hardware a second time, thus wasting even more money.

If TC wants a PS4, s/he simply needs to earn the money needed to buy it.
It really is that simple.

As for depreciating in value, that happened the moment TC took it out of the box and started playing it.

This isn't the original Wii. The U is far easier to find than the original ever was in its first year of availability in NA.

Even would be price gougers can't make back any sort of profit and in fact lost money because Nintendo made sure the thing is just that prevalent.

I love how everyone on this site has first-hand knowledge of exactly how much money Nintendo is making on a daily basis. Clearly the people on this board know more about the inner workings of Nintendo than Nintendo does. It's just non-stop posts about abysmal sales and nintendoooomed and every other stupid nonsense comment anyone can think of. This whole site is just an animal preserve for trolls/haters; DONT FEED THE ANIMALS!!!
