    HI all, thinking of selling my Wii with other bits and pieces and was wondering how much you think it may be worth asking for it? here is what i have :

    Wii Console PAL 4.1E, the wii has a Halo Green case with white LED's -
    [​IMG]

    My Wii is soft modded with Cioscorp v3.4 and also has the backup channel as well as backup loader and USBloader installed.( please note i have not came across a game/backup game that will not play via the Disc Channel, i only have the backup launcher and USB loader, well as backups just encase LOL)
    The Wii also has pre-loader installed as well as BOOTMII as IOS.

    My wii has the matrix theme installed but this can be changed by 1 click of a button(using MyMenufy) to the original theme or another one of your choice, the matrix theme is the one shown in this vid :

    now to the good bit, with my Wii console comes :

    1X original Wii fit disc and Wii fit balance board.
    1X original guitar hero world tour disc and Guitar.
    2X Wii remotes.
    2X Wii motion Plus.( with original Nintendo wii remote covers)
    1X game cube Controller.
    1X Energizer Wii Remote(s) Induction Charger. see here :
    [​IMG]

    Please note this charger charges the wii remotes with wii motion plus attached and with the wii covers on, to save the hassle of having to take them off every time you want to charge your remotes, please also note this charger doesn't require you to match up connection points in order to charge, you simply sit them in the bay and they charge

    see review here :
    http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/s...p;Submit=GO+%3E

    Also included are 50 BACKUP games that have there own case and covers.( titles include - WSR, CONDUIT, GHOST BUSTERS, FIFA 09, GH5, INDYANA JONES and loads more, i can do full list if required??)

    oh and to top it off everything above comes with original packaging and boxes!!

    So what do you all recon?

    That's one hell of a nice product you have there. Especially for people (like me) who don't have a lot of bandwidth and can't download that much Wii games.
    Very nice product, I would rate it around 400 pounds actually.

    Do you sell the games separately?

    If that's really what your Wii looks like then nothing else matters.

    £5 take it or leave it.

    Guy's TBH it's so easy to burn your own discs why would you pay someone to do it. i could easily give you a list of what i have so far, but was just wondering why you wouldn't do it yourself that's all??

    Hell, nowadays you don't even have to burn them anymore [​IMG]. Just hook your HD on your PC, and transfer the ISO's via WBFS Manager.

    I already mentioned why I'm interested in the games. It's because in Belgium, our internet is really really sucky. Speeds are decent (around 400 kb/s, can live with that), but we can only download 20GB a month.
    We use the internet daily, with about 4 people. If everyone just surfs the internet for a few hours, we already have no margin to do anything else on the internet then!
    There is absolutely no way to download a 3GB or even 4GB game in one month, just impossible!
    I can only download scrubbed games, that are under 2.5GB in about one month, but I have all the good games from that section.

    Wawl that is a real bummer, i will compile my list, and as i can download a game in 1 day, i will do requests if the game is not on the list. we can come to some sort of arrangement about costs and P&P at some point.

    P.S i take it your wii is PAL? only reason i ask is i keep all my ISO's LOL so they are all PAL, saves me re downloading them or ripping the image from my own disc's LOL

    To me, it's worth around $300 if you were from the US. You may be able to get more, but you should sell pretty easily @ $300. That doesn't take into account the backup games, but I'd say those are not worth much but I may be wrong. It really depends on the person. Some people just won't buy them. Modded wiis do not sell at a higher price than unmodded ones in my area. Yah, the case mod does lower the value of the package. New Wii owners want their wii to look like a wii but who knows, you may find someone who likes it.

    Quota on downloads?! That sucks. My internet provider caps at 250GB per month too but I don't think I've ever exceed that limit. Not sure what happens if I do... I suppose I get a call from them.

    I did buy my Wii used for $160 and it includes Wii (everything that came with it originally) + extra remote + Wii fit game/board + charging station + Smash Brosh Brawl + Paper Mario + Wii classic remote + some other wii shovelware. Of course, this guy was asking too little for it. I was even able to sell the stuff I didn't want (games, classic remote) for around $50. Sorry if it sounds like I'm bragging, but I guess the wii is worth considerably less in the US.

    Wow, you got one hell of a deal there! 160 dollars is around 120 euros, and for that price, you don't even get half of a brandnew Wii here!
    Amazing! A Wii costs 250 euros here, that's with 1 Wiimote, Nunchuck and Wii Sports.
    Just wow, great deal!

    Way to declare open willingness to commit copyright fraud.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT LIST THE BACKUP GAMES or even mention that you have them.
