This week — right now — is the time to sell your Wii U game console. Nintendo's most recent game console is, more or less, dead in the water.

Like cars, boats, and other luxury items, video game consoles immediately start depreciating in value from the moment you walk out of the store. That much we already know.

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

You don't know you need something until you see it at 70% off

There have been some unbelievable Wii U deals over the years. When Sears/Kmart were clearing out video game sections, they were being found for 100-150.

Pfft. Not here. The unwashed masses and big time resellers/store owners cleared out anything of value long before the discounts got to a decent level.

Only thing I got from that blowout was a $12 Dual Shock 3 and that was only because it wasn't even in electronics. What sucks is that controller then ended up damaged due to me playing a shitton of BF1943. Having to hold down one of the sticks to run in that game equals grinding down the important components in a hurry. Mad I ended up switching out that one with a controller from the first Playstation TV bundle I grabbed from Walmart, which I then dumped on a local shop for $20-25 plus a game via a cash n merchandise trade.

Quote from SelfRighteousDbag(Romeo from CAG) :
From my own experiences, he uses and abuses the sites he is a member of. He cares about no one but himself. If there's a deal ANYWHERE, he is the person to buy 100x of whatever it is to resell for profit, and usually get the deal pulled or canceled.

He lives near me. A couple years ago, he bought five copies of a game on clearance at target closest to me. Bragged about it here then soon found out the trade value wasn't worth a 'flip'. When I called him on it for being a scumbag for buying out the stock, he PM'ed me and told me he would now purposely return them to a target far away from me so I can't get a copy for myself.
Whine more, please.

Kyle: Dude! I almost thought those Afghani kids talked you into not liking America.
Stan: No, dude. America may have some problems, but it's our home. Our team. And if you don't wanna root for your team, then you should get the hell out of the stadium.
Kyle: Yeah.
Stan: <salutes the American flag> Go America.
Kyle: <salutes> Go America...
Stan: Go Broncos
Kyle: Yeah go Broncos.
Cartman: Yeah...

lol the wii u is nothing like the dreamcast. The dreamcast actually had games plus it was the last sega system ever which explains peoples desire to have it.

Will the black Sports Edition DC ever be worth more than the standard one?
Not that I plan to sell mine, of course.
