    I brought one and got the lcd screen it also. Was nice but the screen had bad burn in.
    I stop playing it and trash the lcd and gave the cube to my sister. (sometime back in 2006)
    She never play it. I took it back and when we moved (about 5yrs ago) it ended up in the garage. I saw it some months ago but there is no telling if it works.
    I can go dig it out right now but i dont see the point i got the controller and a wii

    Where's the "Selling my Switch because it broke" option? D:
    Anywho, Wii-U isn't technically mine, though even if it was, I'd keep it forever, I don't get rid of old consoles, I still have a NES, SNES, n64, and so on in a storage unit. lol

    I'm not saying I voted for that option but what if those 4 people owned a Wii U, wasnt happy about how limited the hardware was. Then they bought the Switch and hoped because it was more portable than the Wii U it would be a great emulator but then with the recent discovery of its specs they decided to sell off both the Wii U and the Switch in order to get a Nvidia tablet that has higher specs and more open source for emulation than Switch and more portable than Wii U.

    Anything is possible.

    I don't get my feedback from the Kodi community. I'm glad your one is solid, but there are numerous reports from reliable sources of people receiving units with build issues.

    The thing is massive, and new units use an RK3288 chipset, anyway.

    If you really wanted an Nvidia Shield bad enough, I agree anything is possible but I cannot see why you would want to sell your WiiU and your Switch together to buy an Nvidia shield just because maybe of better emulation. Were not even sure yet how good the Switch is with emulation, it might be better also I don't think the nvidia shield is better than the Switch, I'm not sure where you get your source's from but I doubt very much the Shield could run Zelda Breath of Wild or even entertain Mario Odyssey, have you checked out the pre-shots on Mario Odyssey? I cannot see the Shield running those sorts of games, you could not on a PC so the Shield I have my doubts. The PC can't even run Zelda Breath of Wild properly with full high specs & cemu... and that's even with a 1080 inside!

    Not selling my Wii U, but I am selling some games. I mean why keep MK8, Splatoon if I will be playing it on the Switch. Selling it makes me almost have the renewed version for a few extra bucks.

    I kept my Wii U and bought a Switch. Now my G/F and I can play BotW together on each system.

    Best time to be buying Wii U stuff... pre-owned prices have dropped by over 50% since the launch of the Switch!
