The item will work, if not they will replace it. If the condition is poor then just refund it or get it replaced.

It must be cheap for a reason but just over 100 quid cant be too bad for a wii

Added discounted to the title just so people know :thumbsup:

I assume it means the outer shell has marks :thinking:


To be fair the wii were being bought up by CEX for crazy money over xmas, maybe they bought to much, prices do go down, so at one point you could sell it for £120 now its only £52 as they have quite a bit of stock

I was in gamestation the other day when I saw someone selling a mint condition wii for £45.00 boxed, wii sports the lot. moving in with his gf and she had one..... told him to go to CEX but he wasnt interested.....

yeah maybe thats the reason! or maybe some people are just blind to alternatives and cex probably offer the best high street price, especially if getting credit...
I cant see the discounted part meaning that much - ive been in cex when a kid was trying to trade in a wii and they wouldnt even take it as discounted as the scart block was missing, so i suppose it must just be cosmetic blemishes and all the other stuff should still be included!

I purchased a 360 (discounted) from CEX (traded in a shed load of dvd's). Got it home and the wireless pad had loads of sticking buttons.

Took it back and the guy accused me of swapping the pad.

I have no idea why i just wrote computer exchange, normally write CEX

Back in the day it used to be called computer exchange, dont know what it means now



My 2000th post... wow didnt take long :w00t:

Discounted means no Wii Sports and also could be missing packaging, the console could also be quite dirty. If you go instore you can pick a *good* one... but this offer might be over by then.

I would go instore and pick a white one

I purchased a discounted one just before christmas and it was changing colour, due to dirt and the box was battered!

cex stands for computer entertainment exchange.

a discounted item will be one of two things.

either a missing item that isnt really required to play the system (maybe the plastic stand is missing)
or cosmetic problem (usually just a scrach that wont make a difference to play)

also they did buy a lot in so they are now having to reduce prices - but people will be out there willing to take £50 for a wii - either they are desperate for the cash or its nicked. and that does happen.

incorrect - no wii sports doesnt mean discounted. even their perfect ones are sold without it.
also unboxed is different to discounted. most discounted ones are boxed, but yes could have damaged outer boxes.

having said that my brother got a ps3 last month instore - it was a discounted one, and it was perfect. its was in great condition, barely and scratches i could see, and the box and packaging was perfect. i dont know why it was bought or sold as discounted.

infact he gave it to me because he was borrowing mine and had bought fifa 09 and ultimate team and couldnt redownload the ultimate team and get it to work with his saved files. so he gave me the one he bought (which is newer than mine too as ive mine since april 08) and i didnt think it would be as good being discounted, but it works perfect.

then again i bought a PSP online and it was discounted, and it came without a box or anything at all infact, just the console and charger. i guess its all down to luck.

They were busy and the guy behind the counter just opened the box and said "pad, wires, Xbox". He then flashed the xbox to show what condition it was in.

Not like the old days when there were more indi stores that would let you test them.

Happy days. The likes of Mega-Mania, TORC, Mad Andy's and that one in Putney that sold the import Dreamcast games. ;-)

cex.co.uk/help/

Still nice pricw

I got one of these in store for £110. It had no packaging and wii sports but had all the bits. It was a bit dirty but I just gave it a quick clean and then a nice soft mod!!! Works great :-)

Thanks for clearing that up,i wasnt sure what discounted meant in cex, apart from the price being lower.

Agree and if they are tested anyway like Game test their traded in consoles Buyer Beware!
I have had some minging faulty preowned game discs from cex to the point i dont buy from them at all now, perhaps their pre-owned hardware is different, perhaps.

I want a second one to soft mod and try to put into a NES case, might look into this, thanks OP

I took a phone into CEX 2 days old, the guy told me it was faulty. Cr--p place. Buy things for £50 and sell for £120. I read on one of the forums that they brought this phone for a certain price and even checked the website, the guy made me look dishonest. Should have known better i suppose.

Cash converters in Edinburgh sell them for 79.99 unboxed no game but only have a 2 month warranty. I got mine with 2 games boxed for 89.99(smash bros and sports party). Works perfectly.

The reason being that price is because Wiis are RUBBISH and people are trading them in in their droves! I'd trade mine in if my 5 year old would stop plaing Mario Kart on it...Otherwise it'll be a white dust magnet...

ahh you see but there youve just pointed out the major reason i want one - mario kart! Was looking after my brothers last week and really got into playing on wifi (nothing to do with the fact i was nearly always 1st or 2nd!) - its enough to make me want one although my internet connection isnt quite good enough at the minute!
