How much is your Wii worth? About $25

How much is your Wii worth?

About a quarter of the price of a new release game at EB Games.

MMGN contributor Stephen Heller phoned around yesterday and was shocked to discover that his underused Wii console would net him just $25.

That's how much your Wii is worth: $25.

It might fetch a little more elsewhere, but if you're planning on keeping the games, I wouldn't bank in it.

Meanwhile, a normal 3DS will net you $104 ($80 + 30% extra trading towards Wii U). We called EB Swanson Street.

LOL [MOG]
sell it to a family member.. i might be able to get $50 from a family member :P
EB games always trying to rip people off,
I remember when i got GTA 4 and like a day after i went in just to see the trade in value and they offered me $5 yet they will go and sell it for $70 after i trade it to them
lol just put it on ebay i dont see why people trade in games
Sold my broken one to EB for $30-something a few months ago [MOG]
why everyone is trying to sell me their wiis today?
My Wii is missing some screws from my DIY mod-chip installation.

Does that make it worth more?
I do not have a Wii. How much can I get?
wow that is way to small
My wii is soft modded (and im not sure how to remove it) more moneies?
this whole time I've been flushing it down the toilet.
seen as mine only gost me $40 from cash converters :D $25 dont seem that bad but Id rather keep em for nostalgic moments (hell I still have my gameboy classic :D.
That's why I keep my consoles, they are not worth trading in these days.
i don't really care how much there going to pay me im keeping my console for 2 reasons
1. i've download a lot of wii shop games
2. i have only 70 games on the wii
It was the same with the GameCube when the Wii first came out.

I actually couldn't sell my GameCube because the guy at GameTraders didn't wanna buy it.
Damn povo scum EB. [Shifty]

Well considering you can buy a brand new wii with game and controller for $99, $25 for a 2nd hand unknown history console with no games is probably about right really. They also offer a 3 month warranty on these 2nd hand consoles when they sell them on, something the initial trader doesn't have to worry about. You've got to consider they aren't a charity, they've gotta make some $$$ out of the deal too.
Just called up and a standard 3DS is worth $104 ($80 + 30% extra for trading towards Wii U).
