I just came back from my weekly trip to my local Cash convertors and for the past few months the second hand wii console prices are next to nothing, this week the shop was selling, full systems with boxes for R399 ($49.80) near mint and hardly used, and some dodgy ones without a boxes and accessories for R199 ($24.80),most of them had D2A-D2C so there all chipable and can read DVD-R discs.
Needless to say I picked up all the loose consoles as I pay a lot more for spares, dvd-drives (D2x $30-$40) and motherboards($30+) especially.
I thought its a bit strange especially considering the console still retails for about R1500 ($188)
Strange thing is the second hand games still cost quite a bit between R150-200 ($18.75-$25)
So today when browsing amibay a user from the UK wants £49 for a boxed black mint unit??
Is this a global trend,hows the wii second hand market in your country?
