    you know what its like if you still dont have a wii. Now i'm stuck with £235 for a Wii and my mum will only let me spend £190 for one on ebay. this really sucks because I've been trying to make deals with people and they will go down to about £240 this really sucks!

    Wait man, it'll be worth it more than to go and settle for an eBay auction. The xBox 360 didn't become widely available until the end of the fist quarter of 2006, but I think the Wii will be produced quickly as it's less expensive to manufacture. I agree with the others, save your money for games. Good luck (I'm still looking too).

    yeh im still looking....my max on ebay is £220...but i dont think i want to pay that much. id rather spend it on extra games and remotes.

    And by the way, you will NOT find a wii for £190 on ebay for about a year now. lol

    You could get a job so you can afford a Wii off Ebay?

    I am in the same situation as you, parents put £180 towards it, I coughed up an extra £70. That took the total to £250 for my Wii with Zelda. So I really only paid £30 over the RRP.

    The thing with eBay is to wait and look, and wait some more. It took me about 5 days to find that deal. Its also useful to look at auctions that have just started, ones with just under 10, 7 or 3 days left. You can use Buy It Now to grab a decent before anyone else gets a look in.

    Good luck.

    Just to cover my ass . . . "To WuZeMe's Mother. I am not encourging your son/daughter to buy an over priced console from eBay."

    That does not make sense! YOU have the money but YOU cannot use it? Is your Mum making you wait till you can get one at RRP and she won't let you buy one at over the RRP?

    1.00 EUR = 1.31970 USD

    take from XE.com universal currency converter.

    so your 280 USD is actually 212.170 EUR

    Haha, i actually received two wii's on December 17th. One i waited for, and one i had connection for. I kept one and sold the other for 510 USD. I got about 30 messages asking me to sell it for 290, go ahead and hate on me if you want. But money is money. Epically when you live in your own apartment at 18.

    Or seen as you have pounds and not Euros . . . . the exchange rate is

    1 GBP = 1.48436 EUR

    £180 = 267 EUR

    yeh but krylik its different. I understand if your 18 in your own appartment, my bro cant afford one so he stays here. But most of the people I've done buisness with are 30+ most of them buying stuff for there spoided kids. Its greedy if they can afford to sell it for £200.

    DarkenSpirit I suggest you never admit to mixing with the £ sign for a euro, Brits will not forgive you for such a deed! I for one will!

    This thread seems to going along the lines of "Should people be able to sell Wii's for huge amounts of cash?"
