    I want to buy some Wii games and GC games to play on Wii, and I have this two consoles which I bought a long time ago, and I've realise that I can still make a lot a money with those gaming systems. I have many games for the DC and some games for the GBA. I think this is a good idea.
    I'm from Portugal, so I can't sell them on EBay, but there are plenty of stores that buy this kind of old games and consoles for a good price.
    I'm also waiting for Brawl, Galaxy, MP 3, No More Heroes, and many others, so I need to save some money as well.

    Im just saying, weather you are buying a system that can play the games of a system your about to sell or not, you should keep it and SAVE! I dont sell my GC just because Wii can play the games... Just my outlook on it. If you live in Portugal then you should just "hord" your systems.

    Yes, but you may want to play them in the future and they wont be there.
    Hord means to keep everything, to be a packrat.

    No I don't think that I want to play them in the future, I didn't play them for some years.

    Yeah you can, and almost all other gamers I know do that, but not me. Go ahead and do that. I have a job so if I want something I just save for it.

    You like to collect old consoles and play old games, it's not unsual.
    I do buy all the consoles play new games, then when they are old sell them, and then buy new consoles and new games... same thing over and over...

    But, think about it this way. When we're ALOT older, imagine going up into your attic and finding those old things. We'll be gobsmacked because we'll be playing games that actually look completely real :p

    Yeah maybe you're right!! But that's why we have a Virtual Console Channel in the Wii.

    Yeah, but if your a nistalgic gamer like me and Dr. Mario, you will want to keep all your older systems. I keep them all and just keep buying more and more games for them... I want a Game Gear Dr. Mario. If you can find one "Not eBay" then let me know. Its not so much about "playing" the games, but more about owning them.
