    So I was at a used video game place in Wisconsin today and they had some used Virtual Console controllers for $14 each which isn't too bad of deal, but nothing special. But my eyes got wide when I saw a Wiimote barely used for $16 only. I snatched that up and I see they go for over $30 after shipping on eBay. I'm pumped now, cause I only had one Wiimote and didn't really want to buy Play, I justed wanted the second one for Wii Sports and Rampage. Heck, it even came with batteries that flashed at 3 bars!

    Actually, you got even more of a bargain, a new Wii Remote costs $40, not $30. You saved $24, that's an excellent deal for a (claimed) good conditioned Wii Remote.

    Yeah, $40 new in stores, I meant around $30 on eBay seems to be the going rate. A bargain either way. But yeah, I think it works fine, I just bowled a game against myself and my original controller won, 150-138. :lol:

    I wish the Wiimote prices here were that low. Meh, I'd be happy if you could actually go to ebGames and see a Wiimote hung up on the wall here. The words "Out of Stock" are now my worst enemy. :D

    Meh... I ended up paying $43 for a Wiimote on the Amazon marketplace. Tax and shipping included. Good or bad deal?

    According to NexGen right now the current Console Sales are:

    11.09 - Xbox 360
    4.24 - PS3
    10.07 - Wii


    And in the coming months I'd expect X-Box 360 to rise at a faster pace, with the release of Halo 3. Christmas will be the true test. Wii with SSBB & Super Mario Galaxy vs X-Box 360 with Halo 3 and PS3 with.....
