It probably has something to due with the fact it came out a year after the XBox version.

By that time, the price had probably went down on it, and the hordes of fans got it on day one everyone who wanted to play it already had a full year to get it.

Wii = $49.99 to $89.99 depending on where you take it.

LOZ:TP = $12 to $16.

Rampage = No Clue.

Spider-Man 3 = $11

SCIV could be anywhere from $17 to almost $31.

Each store will pay different prices depending on invetory, demand, quality and prices always greatly devalue when the predocessor is released (IE: Madden 2011 will go down in used price once 2012 is released).

Re: General Gaming Discussion

K, thnx. I'm trying to sell all this junk because 1) I NEVER play my Wii anymore and 2) I'd like some dough for when WWE '12 comes out.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

I sold my Wii as well. I never played it and when I picked it up to put it in the box to go sell it I legitimately had to wipe dust off of it. I'm not a fan of the Wii at all. It was a gimmick that failed.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

I never played because I genuinely could not find a single game that made me interested. I think Nintendo believes that the majority of their userbase are colourful, polo-shirt wearing, lockjaw smiling white americans who have fun playing trampoline simulators with their dying elders.

Not even close, actually. Piracy on the PC is about as large as the amount of people actually buying games; on consoles its <10 %.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Not to me, they don't. Not even close. I picked up the Wii for Zelda and once I got through with that I played it very little. It was a waste of my money and honestly, I just wanted to play Zelda that bad. Nothing ever comes out for the Wii that really interests me, I don't feel bad about selling it at all.

Any numbers on that? It's a pretty hard thing to prove, I understand, but that sounds like publisher scare-speak.
