Less then it's really worth and less then what you would like for it.

How about do something good. Give it to someone who would really like to have it.

Well, starting October 24, you'll get an extra $25 trade-in credit. So, you may get $50 or so for it in the end. Link:

Obvious answer: Call Gamestop and ask.

I don't know but it won't be much. I second Fire2Box's suggestion, that is a really nice idea.

If you are going to sell it though, I would try the usual...eBay, Craigslist, etc. Or to flip Fire2Box's idea around a little and make it a little less generous, sell it to someone you know who would like it and give them a good deal on it.

Support PHYSICAL (not digital) distribution, and keep control of games in the hands of customers. Also, buy the game NIER. It may not be perfect but the music..

Don't trade it in TC. You will always get the bad side of the deal in this situation. If you want to get the most for your Wii, then do a private sale somehow.

To those who insist on pointing out that a person's opinion is not fact: thanks for stating the obvious... now, can we move on?

They're not supposed to do that, since it could have legal implications if they offer something different for whatever reason. Of course, an employee may make the mistake/favor of telling it, but it is against company policy.

A good pawnshop would give more than $25.00 for it. The short story seems like it could use some elongating for the truth actually. It doesn't make sense. : )

Last time I contemplated it it was.. $12 for a Wii, honestly.
I wasn't going to trade it in anyways since SS coming later this year, but I was curious to hear the price they'd give.
