Bought a used Wii

Yep; I bought a used Wii last month & it's been nice to have one again. Yea I understand that the Wii U is backwards compatible but it's actually nice to be able to play a Wii game on the tv & not have to choose between the Wii U gamepad or tv. :p

I'm sure a few people who have yet to experience the Wii will be getting once since they're cheaper to get a used one then getting either an Xblox 360 or a PS3; as the the Wii is $80 used, Xblox 360 & PS3 are both going for $150 used alternatively.

Nice. I still have my Wii that I bought a year after it's launch & it's doing fine. So many games for the Wii: so little time to play them all. XD

That is really quite a bargain, many probably find it hard to justify the cost of a Wii U when there is the original Wii available for just 80 bucks!

Well I actually do have a Wii U & moved all of my Wii games (on the old launch Wii I had) over to the Wii U which btw was a godsend. But I wanted a Wii system that I could pop the homebrew channel on & now I've got a nicely brewed Wii I can play iso gba/snes titles on along with some lovely Wii titles with gecko infused codes. >:3

Nice, what controller do you use for you GBA and SNES games? I remember I used to run ROMs off of my PSP back in the day.

I tend to use the Wiimote as my controller usually. I'll get out my Gamecube controller if I'm feeling nostalgic though. xp

You must be one of the only people I know who use the Wiimote to play classic games. Don't you find the controls cumbersome?

Hey, that's a great price you got your Wii for. Honestly, I think everyone that considers themselves a gamer should own a Wii, really can't understand all the negative statements I encountered across the internet during the previous generation. It's a great little system with tons of excellent games, just because it was a little under-powered, the Microsoft and Sony faithful would bash it endlessly. I still play more games on my Wii, while I use my PS3 predominantly as a blu-ray player to watch movies.
