    Well yea, i had my Wii for almost well about 4 Months i think. I have no intention of having one. Never wanted one, but my dad bought it for my birthday present. I couldn't reject it. So i started playing with it, it was some what fun for a few months. Then i bought Mario Party 8, an extra Wii Remote. It was alright. So now, its boring. Please don't start flaming. Its my Wii, I can sell it. So like the threads title says, im thinking of trading my Nintendo Wii(With everything, the stuff that comes with the box, extra controller, and Mario Party 8) for a iPod Touch. I already have a iPod Nano 2nd Generation. Not the 3rd Generation, the 2nd Generation. 4 GB. But i need more GB's. The iPod Touch, the one im looking for is 8 GB or 16 GB. Some where around there(Well, one of them, i don't need a gigantic 32 GB). And I'm going to give my 2nd Generation iPod to either my mom or sell it on CraigsList.

    So heres the "chart"

    |Nintendo Wii | iPod Touch(8 GB or 16 GB)
    -------------------------------------------------
    Retail Price |$250 |8 GB: $300, 16 GB: $399 (But i can find 16 Used ones for about the price of a 8 GB
    -------------------------------------------------
    Used or New|Used |New or Used. New ones(16 GB) on CraigsList is about $350. Which is $50 off the retail price
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Yea. So there is about $50 differance between the 8 GB Touch and Nintendo Wii and a 16 GB Touch and Nintendo Wii(Too, the used ones on CraigsList which im going to buy from)

    Is it worth it? I hardly even play my Wii.
    And should i Sell the Wii first for more Cash THEN buy a New iPod Touch?(for more money/extra money)

    I really don't understand people who go for the Ipod Touch instead on the Iphone. Doesn't make any damn sense.

    You have no idea what I just said because all of the big words are far too hard for you to understand.

    Sorry, but I don't have time to dumb down my post into retard terms. I'll gracefully exit this topic now.

    well its a decent trade but it depends on how much music/videos you have or like and how many games are coming out soon for the wii you are interested in..i wouldnt make the trade but I'd save up for the 16gb touch because the 8gig fills up way to fast if you have more than 10 videos

    why would you want a Touch if you have an iPhone?

    the iPhone does everything the touch does plus more doesn't it?

    ok,
    I thought you said you had an iPhone sorry.

    BTW if you install any mods on iPods or iPhones I think it voids the warranty

    You act as if you are somehow, magically, more aware of this stuff than I am. I know what Jailbreaking is. You do not need to explain to me what it is.

    Break your contract, move to the land of GSM, good phones, and the Iphone.

    Gbatemp is not the place to ask that question.

    if you want to do it, then go for it.
    if you are unsure then think long and hard about it.

    That is my opinion and there is no way for me to say it without a comment like that.
    You will regret the trade in the future, you will see.

    How could possibly one regret selling off the Wii? By the times good games come out, they system will be easily available in stores! This is only profit ++ with no downside.
