    Yep by the time you pay tax the cheapest one on there will cost over $300 used.

    More like $200 on Ebay but that still means you got a steal.

    @Jayinem81 Not sure where you got your calculations from (the screenshot you showed doesn't seem to be eBay) but here in EU a used Wii U gets sold for something in between 75 and 150 € (eBay prices). I for myself got my (used) Wii U (with gamepad, Wiimote, nunchuck, games and more) for 80 €... Also no need to pay any taxes (except "Mehrwertsteuer" which you as a customer also don't need to care about) as long as you stay in the same tax region. Now if you import a japan unit to EU or a EU unit to US you ofc. have to pay taxes but why would you do that?

    I said Ebay is more like $200 Amazon is $300 (all you had to do was go back to the end of the last page to understand the conversation was about Amazon and I just added in that Ebay was cheaper). Just because your country doesn't pay taxes America pays taxes now for all online purchases. So stay in your line don't think that every country is the same is my advice.

    I did follow the conversation but seems like you can't remember what yourself said:
    For real? This is probably the first time a US citizen says that to a EU citizen... For all guys reading this: Mark that point in history!

    //EDIT: Do you even realize that the OP is no US citizen, so the US "taxes for all online purchases" law doesn't apply? He's also no EU citizen so who of us is trying to force-apply his own country law to the rest of the world? ... Thanks for the great laugh before going to bed...

    I made an honest mistake I meant amazon, at least I wasn't so narrowminded to say you can just "ignore taxes" yeah I'm sure they're just listed there and you can just ignore them lmao. Speaking of ignore I'm about to use that feature.

    Where exactly did I say you can ignore taxes? All I sayd was you as a customer don't have to care about "Mehrwertsteuer". That's because you always pay that tax as it's already included in what you see on eBay (or on any other store. Say an apple is marked as 1 €, then it really costs 0,81 € and the rest is "Mehrwetsteuer". Still you don't have to care as nobody writes out the costs without that tax), no need to pay anything more than what you see on eBay...

    //EDIT:
    Great decision, at least for me. :P Hope you're going to ignore me on GitHub & co, too, so you can't make stupid bug reports for my (not yet released) homebrews or anything like that.

    I would have said it depends on what you want to do with it. I feel we`re very short way from getting a LOT more running then those mentioned. Just give it time.

    More and more we`re unlocking the machine & get rewards for doing it.
