Good (current) price, but "Grade C" sounds a bit scary. I don't suppose they are that price in store, so you can check what a "Grade C" looks like?

Somewhat dispelling the myth that Nintedos don't lose value.


It's taken a new console to come out for prices to finally drop - i think you've missed the point of the statement

I've own many Nintendo devices. Some of the special editions hold value but like all consoles they lose value rapidly, the Wii U did ok.... that's about as best a spin as you can put on it


My issue is in terms of the new market - you can get an xbox one or ps4 bundled with a few games for cheaper than a new Wii U generally runs you. Deals like this are somewhat few and far between.
As an ex-employee from GAME, I can assure you that there's nothing to be worried about for the grading. For those unaware, Grade A basically means brand new in box or opened but is in pristine condition.
Grade B is opened, usually has a box and may have like 1 or 2 scratches/marks on the console. There will be little to no dust on the console itself.
Grade C is a couple of noticeable scratches/markings and may carry a bit of dust.

Certainly in the store i worked at, we are very strict on our grading and there is a very fine line between grade c and not acceptable...like if there are too many scratches on the console we wont take it, likewise any removal of warranty stickers or port covers are immediately rejected. We also take a look at the controller as well and if there was the slightest thing wrong with it (joystick is a bit sticky or loose, scratches, marks, weak/squeaky triggers etc.) then the entire console is rejected for trade in also.

Next comes the testing, in our quieter periods (i.e. not at xmas when we have hoards of "entitled" customers who want to buy the latest COD or BF for their little ones) we usually spent 30 mins testing each console and that covers everything...how fast it turns on, if it reads a disc, how well it reads the disc, any loud noises emitted by the fans, network connectivity etc. if it passes then we finally format the console and give it a final grade.

Also remember that you get a 12 month warranty (1 free repair/replacement) should anything go wrong so there's that for an extra piece of mind.

Anyway voted hot, the console may be dead but there is a huge treasure trove of gems that are to be played should you pick one up

Hard to find a good one for reasonable price retail, grade c though for £100..

Think I'd go for classifieds on here\avforums or local cash convertors etc instead

Website showing in-store price of £149.99.
Grade does sound sketchy I picked up a Wii U when Zelda BOTW came out from Grainger games a 5/6 weeks ago, was able to check the 3 they hard in store out before I bought one and got an unboxed like-new console for £130 not an amazing deal but at least you know what you are getting

Shame it isnt this price instore so you could took a look at them


Edited by: "TobiRIP" 13th Apr 2017
Hmmmmmm 12 months warranty is not too shabby, tempted to roll the dice on this one. So many gems on the Wii U I missed out on last / current gen

If you've got a reasonable PC you can run them pretty damn well using CEMU.

Somewhat dispelling the myth that Nintedos don't lose value.
Probably a lottery - I offered a phone to Game that was in very decent condition (new screen) bar scratches around the charging port and they said it was Grade C. But they'll also tell that to the guy who used his WiiU as a chopping board.

Fully functional
Reasonable condition
May have some cosmetic marks or scratches
No scratches on screen that distort the screen image when on"

It's definitely getting there. Few more CEMU updates and i'll start Zelda all over again I reckon.

Pretty sure that statement is usually referring to games more than consoles. Pretty much all consoles will get cheap eventually.
Tbh the price of the Wii U was what has put me off the wii U and slightly the switch.I did see one good deal that I didn't miss out on, but would've needed to travel more than I wanted :c

Can you run wii games on these? Our wii is on last legs, oh and do the wii controllers connect with these too?

Yes - it will play all Wii games and you'll also be able to do a system transfer, copying all of your data over from your Wii to the Wii U, including save games and any Virtual Console or digital game that you've bought. Not only will the Wii controllers/remotes work with the Wii U - they're actually required for many games (you can only have one Wii U Gamepad per Wii U, so Wii remotes are used for extra players in multiplayer games, amongst other things) so you'll be off to a good start with the Wii U if you already have a Wii.

That's great, I know the switch is out but my 3 daughters aren't that fussed with consoles apart from let's dance and sims etc so thought it could be an upgrade from the Wii, withought forking out loads if not used as much! Plus the wii graphics are pretty poor! oO
HI will this play super nintendo games?

thanks
Grade C - casing held together by semen or other bodily fluids.

Tesco once sold these brand new for this price years ago. Well done to those who bought them, played it to death and managed to get more than their money back!
As an ex-employee from GAME, I can assure you that there's nothing to be worried about for the grading. For those unaware, Grade A basically means brand new in box or opened but is in pristine condition.
Grade B is opened, usually has a box and may have like 1 or 2 scratches/marks on the console. There will be little to no dust on the console itself.
Grade C is a couple of noticeable scratches/markings and may carry a bit of dust.

Certainly in the store i worked at, we are very strict on our grading and there is a very fine line between grade c and not acceptable...like if there are too many scratches on the console we wont take it, likewise any removal of warranty stickers or port covers are immediately rejected. We also take a look at the controller as well and if there was the slightest thing wrong with it (joystick is a bit sticky or loose, scratches, marks, weak/squeaky triggers etc.) then the entire console is rejected for trade in also.

Next comes the testing, in our quieter periods (i.e. not at xmas when we have hoards of "entitled" customers who want to buy the latest COD or BF for their little ones) we usually spent 30 mins testing each console and that covers everything...how fast it turns on, if it reads a disc, how well it reads the disc, any loud noises emitted by the fans, network connectivity etc. if it passes then we finally format the console and give it a final grade.

Also remember that you get a 12 month warranty (1 free repair/replacement) should anything go wrong so there's that for an extra piece of mind.

Anyway voted hot, the console may be dead but there is a huge treasure trove of gems that are to be played should you pick one up

If you mean will it play Super Nintendo games from the original cartridges then, no, it won't. But you can buy digital versions of many games from older consoles, including the NES, SNES, Master System, Mega Drive and N64 for the Virtual Console from the online shop. Here are the SNES games that are available -

excellent!! cheers!!
Good price, i'll still wait for them to come down even more though!
Anybody think that this is a good deal instead of jumping for a switch? I've been thinking about picking up a Nintendo console for a while but don't want to drop £280 plus games on a switch just yet!

the wii u is very easy to mod these days, it's worth getting one just for that
Brilliant time to buy a Wii U - not sure the games will get a lot cheaper than they are now, especially given the low print runs of a lot of the titles.

the Wii U was only out for four years

If you don't need your console to be portable outside the home, then Yes!

As the Wii U has been out for a while there's a very good range of exceptional games from Nintendo, some real gems in fact. You also have the ability to buy some of the same games the Switch has / or will have - like Zelda Breath of The Wild, Mario Kart 8, Lego City Undercover (the latter two for a lot less too), you have the Nintendo Selects range - most of which can be found for under £15 if you shop around, there's a well stocked eShop, original Wii backward compatibility (when you use Wii controllers) for classics like Mario Galaxy and even the old Wii shop with its original 'Virtual Console' is still available when running in 'Wii mode' too. It's a fabulous piece of kit all round!

Grade C = Dropped, Kicked Around, Kids rubbing car keys over the glossy plastic lol.
Saw this yesterday but agreed put off by grade c. Hoping for a brand new one for £150...
Cheapest way to play Zelda Breath of The Wild. Game of the year if not decade! Heat added
