NINETENDO WII - PREOWNED - £19.99 - CASH CONVERTERS/CASH GENERATOR

Found 6th Sep 2013
Got the great deal of a wii fit board and game out of Game for £7.99, so had to go buy a wii.

Knew cash converters were doing them for £29.99 so popped over, when i got in the lady said that they had been reduced to £19.99 and should be in most stores HOWEVER price is at the manager's discretion so some stores may not take part in the price drop.

Included: Wii Console, all wires needed, sensor bar & 1 controller

6 month warranty also.

Thought it was a good little deal!

Great price well done thanks

This is a good deal. Paid £45 for one exactly a year ago from GAME. And I thought THAT was pretty cheap back then. Didn't expect it to fall so much in price.

Good if they honour it. Last time they took my money and didn't deliver! Took 3 weeks to get the money back

I can confirm that the Hanley Stoke-On-Trent store had them for £19.99

This console died in 2007 it had one good year, then everyone said Oops been conned by the Emperor's New Clothes there and moved on. The Wii U is also a failure, handhelds is all that keeps Nintendo going. This is a good price though so I voted it hot

Great price

The Wii has some fantastic games on it, if you're prepared to wade through the shovelware dross.

Can't argue with that, it does, however this should be the going rate for the console now in reality.

Microsoft made a loss on the 360 until at least the end of 2010.
PS3 is doing all it can to become profitable by Sony giving all their games away for £5 a month. (The damage that will have done has yet to be felt).
Nintendo has made a loss in two quarters ever.

(Neither Sony or MS will give exact figures so as not to annoy their investors).

It is why the next gen hardware is so poor quality.

Nintendo Wii is a fab console for kids with the Mario titles being the most popular by far. The Wii U hasn't yet got the right games available but they are coming (check out releases planned over next 6 months) and this will get more uptake, although mainly still for younger kids.

i can also confirm blackburn will honour at this price too

unboxed wii with 12 months warranty.

Yeah in financial terms none have done well, I was talking about games and community support. The Wii is well past its sell by date in that repsect, it doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it at this price though.

£20 + Softmod = Profit?

Personally i don't think any console yet has beaten the wii in regards to full family fun, it's the ideal family console and it'll stop my niece touching my xbox!

Anyway, thanks for the comments, especially the ones saying it's definitely available at other stores too, hopefully it'll be quite widespread so people can catch a bargain.

I think it's completely worth it at this price considering they are selling controller only for £8!!

May i also say mine was in great condition with the only non genuine thing being the battery cover on the remote (had been replaced with an 'easy grip' one).

Mine has a 6 month warranty but best to check with the store if other stores are offering differently

If it stops your niece touching your xbox then that's a court case avoided, so it must be worth it.

Yeah £28 (wii and board) is easier spent than a life in prison

I prefer the Tentendo Wii personally.

£20 is excellent, those who are talking about it being bad because the wii sucks...well the games I agree arnt great but the party like ones are really fun for having your mates around for a night drinking and having a laugh.

Plus it works as a gamecube... some excellent gamecube games...smash bros melee, luigis mansion...star wars rouge squadron, the resident evil remake, resi 0.... etc

Absolute RUBBISH!
The Wii is great, especially for children.
I think the only people that didn't like the Wii were blokes in their 30's/40's that dream about one day having a girlfriend who they have actually met.

Possibly a dumb question but since this has iPlayer, Opera and a remote like controller, could you buy one to use as a smart Tv? (not sure what other apps are available). Or would an Android stick or those Sky Now boxes be better? Thanks.

Virtual console and gamecube abilities make this a good deal anyway though not fan of many wii games.

Worth it for resident evil 4 wii edition.

Your being far too harsh on the Wii, there are some absolute classic games available for it, and it's success made its more powerful rivals rethink things and bring in they're own motion systems.

It's just a shame every gimmicky desktop mouse controlled flash game got released on the console too.

My local not taking part. Wii is very underrated there are some very good games.

Also usually available for £19-20-ish in Cash Generator. There just seems to be a lot of them about

Several people have confirmed Cash Converters and now Cash Generator so i have edited title to include both (that way if only one of them are open nearby you still know you can get it)

Thanks for the heads up

Thanks great deal, marked this deal as HOT!!!

Thanks for posting this very HOT little deal!!!

Suppose, maybe i'm just too much of a cheapskate. My friend's parents just bought a second hand wii with one game for £80, i could have screamed Least yours was new!

Blimey! Yeah I did a lot of looking before I found the bundle for click and collect from Blockbusters, luckily a store near me had stock. To pick a new one up for £80 is great, second hand... not so great!
As long as they're happy with it mind

I've been checking up Cash Converters in Cheetham Hill, Manchester, and they have some crazy prices on most things. They sold a Wii package this morning which had a Wii Fit Plus board including game, Guitar Hero World Tour inc Guitar, Mario Kart inc Wheel all for £50!

Absolutely - I've softmodded loads of these and they become excellent little media players - play DVDs, movies stored on a hard drive or USB stick stuck in the back and a few other bits over the internet. Oh, and play the odd game! great tutorial here:

Oh, I thought they did that kind of thing without Modding already!
edit: oh, emulators and stuff! I think Wii is non HD though.
