Ew. Thats all i gotta say.
So, I went ahead and did it, and ordered a Wii from eBay. Ended paying $380, for just the console and it being overnighted, but I'm actually ok with that. I don't feel like camping out, waking up early, and wasting all my gas to try and find one of these..plus, the excitement of owning one is just too painful.
So it should be here tomorrow, and I just had one question for you guys. I'm not sure if it comes with the original receipt (even though it is factory sealed) and was wondering; if there is any problem with it, and I need to contact Nintendo for a replacement, do they need the original receipt, or is the UPC from the box good enough for them?
Ew. Thats all i gotta say.
Kill all the copyrights and loosen my tongue.
I love my friends and all my friends are in love.
I'll say it louder when you think I've said enough.

can't you get the geezer to send the receipt?Originally Posted by zea
If it wasn't for the kind of person that sold you it you might have had a reasonably priced system. By buying a Wii you support them, and now the next generation will definitely be plagued by Ebayers. But to be honest if I had the same amount of money to spend on a Wii I'd have done the same. GG to you good sir.

If Nintendo placed the price at $400, it would sell as well as it did. When they first announced the motion-sensing controls a while back, I was readily willing to pay at least $400.
So yeah, I know I got ripped off, but because of everyone just telling me how great it is, and my sneak peaks of watching my friends play it, I just needed one, and could "unfortunately" afford it at that price.
As for the "Geezer", I'm sure he could send me the receipt, and hope that he does. I emailed him, he just hasn't gotten back to me, but you guys think that Nintendo will just need the serial number? What kind of warranty does the Wii have then?
They take down your credit card number and if you don't return the original console, they charge you $250USD.Originally Posted by zea
