How anyone can describe a console which has Zelda BotW, Mario 3D World, Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, Pikmin 3, Wind Waker HD, Mario Maker, Splatoon, Xenoblane Chronicles X, Tropical Freeze, Captain Toad, Axiom Verge, Child of Light, New Mario Bros U, Wonderful 101, Zombi U as a waste of a console is beyond me.

If it wasn't for the Wii U, we wouldn't have the Switch so I can't believe that Nintendo would think of it as wasted. It was, by some distance, my favourite console of the past 10 years.

Nice price heat added
hmm it's good but then again only £78 from cex grade c with 2 years warranty :/
Makes me wonder what I can get for mine seeing as it's just collecting dust now, pristine condition with 130 physical games. Hmm.

If anyone does buy this make sure the fan intake grill is clear. I also wonder what digital games would come linked to the console they send, if any.

130 physical games?? I could barely come up with 30 WiiU games worth having.

I think I played mine for about 70 hours (total) in the end.

The PS3 and XBox 360 had far more games worth having.

I would say 10-20, but yeah I have no idea how it's possible to have 130 games on it lol, I didn't even know 130 games existed on it, maybe lots of digital stuff?

I wouldn't touch grade C with a barge pole.

From CEX's own website:-

C - Working - Product in poor condition and fully working with all essential accessories. No box required.

Their own words: "poor condition"

Consoles are graded differently but the Wii U you mention looks like it is discounted grade, so again poor condition.

Discounted - Poor condition but must be fully working. Chips, dents and scratches are acceptable providing function is not impeded. Cracks or missing/broken casing is not acceptable. All essential accessories, any compatible controller. Box not required.

10-15... At a push. If one really wants to make the stretch.

The Wii U is worth it for Bayo2 and MK8 alone.

Didn't know Wii U even had as many as 130 games released for it

easy solution pickup instore to check. job done i said grade C because its actually classed as discounted not graded but because of this it can mean it's missing accessories like say gamepad stand not always because of the condition of the console but given its piano black surface which is bad for showing scratches most will have them anyways. you wouldn't get any dents in a wii u that be near impossible tbh. cracks are highly unlikely too but each to their own if worried about ordering from CEX always just pickup instore and then if any issues or not happy tell them there and then.

Yeah I think I got around 15 games for it, and out of them the only one I didn't really like much was Starfox Zero, a great disappointment. The exclusives by Nintendo were good as always, but it didn't have much else.

Starfox Zero was supposed to be Platinum's dream project, but was ruined as a result of Miyamoto's meddling.

Sometimes I wonder if it would be better if Platinum was just bought out by the likes of Sony. And then they could have the financial backing to make the kind of Starfox game that they really wanted to make.

It sucks seeing a studio of Platinum's pedigree be reduced to being nothing more than a work for hire...

Yes grade c and discounted seem comparable. I'd agree with you viewing in store would be a good route as CEX quality control can leave a lot to be desired sometimes. I've seen some battered items on sale in store that make me wonder how they got accepted in the first place, as (in my opinion) they're not in saleable condition. Plenty of items in pristine condition too of course and I would hope CEX's online grading definitions are accurate for the products they sell online so there are no nasty surprises.

Splatoon was over-rated. Same with Zombi U.

Smash Bros? Urgh!

Axiom Verge and Child Of Light were available on other consoles.

Tropical Freeze was amazing though.
I would hold on to your Wii U if it's in good condition and you have a lot of original games. Name me one older Nintendo console that hasn't become collectible over time. The Wii sold way too many units to become collectible I guess, but the Wii U is a future collectible for sure. Hardly any were sold and it had an amazing games library. Give it a few years.

wow! superb
I had a Wii U with 4 Pro controllers to play Mario Kart (I also softmodded it but didn't play anything on it).
I sold it but now have a switch which can be modded. Again, I don't know if it will ever get any use (my Xbox X and Ps4 Pro don't).
More time is spent buying them than actually playing them.
Kinda tempted. It's ashame Game's £50 deal never came back around.
The Wii U pro controller is still my favourite controller so light with an amazing battery life I still have mine set up to play the occasional game of excite truck

Dead tech. Cold.
I’ve bought 2 from CEX in the last year for just under £80 each, definitely tough to buy online without in hand pictures as it took me long enough to get 2 decent ones, I’ve seen too many scratched up gameplay screens 😔

Definitely a decent console (also easy to mod if you’re into that sort of thing)

I really don't buy the Miyamoto meddling thing. The guy is a genius, anything he touches turns to gold. Not that he hasn't made mistakes, but I can't see how the game would be amazing somehow if he wasn't helping out. I could easily see it being even worse. If nothing else, he has standards.

I don't think Platinum are a great match for Sony because their budget is limited. Their games don't stand out much on a platform where they have to compete with all the megacorporations.

Just finished WindWaker HD. It’s worth the price for that title alone, a tremendous game. A superb console and should be part of any self respecting gamers collection
