    did you not hear? Smash Bros is coming to the Wii. And Galaxy is out now and is as good as anything the 360 has to offer.

    Buy a 360 sure, there are lots of brilliant games for it. But the Wii is worth keeping around now that things are getting interesting.



    Anyway, for xbox live you can buy prepaid cards for it. Either monthly or yearly cards. Yearly is $AU79 I believe.

    Best combo my friend is the Wii360 - yes! by all means the XBOX360 got some good games, BUT i also got the Wii cos i have been a Nintendo fanboy since the days of the NES & i KNOW if this is thier BEST selling console yet then they will defo release some AWESOME classics that you'll play for years & years!!!

    Get em BOTH i say- worth paying a bit more...

    i don't blame you for selling your wii - it's a waste as a console, 2 maybe 3 games that are worth playing the rest are average, with tacked on motion sensing controls and the like.

    buying a 360 will be a better decision than buying a wii, it has a library of quality games with far superior titles than the wii.

    gamestation give you half in cash (but you need to provide address details like a bank statement) or a two-thirds in exchange of the retail price of the console. the same for the accessories. hope that helps

    You can get £221 cash and £236 store credit for your Wii alone from cex. If you're adamant on getting rid then take it to your local store or you can do it online.

    Problem with the 360 is that it lacks the games that the Wii has, whereas the Wii lacks the games the 360 has.

    I think theres plenty of great games for the Wii but thats my own taste really.

    I personally think that you should sell your Wii yourself but next month! Don't go through Game or Gamestation, they suck balls to me. You'll get more money if you sell it yourself, people are still buying Wii's like crazy now, there'll be a shortage so people will be willing to pay a lot for them. 360's are pretty cheap though now so you'll be able to get a console and some great games for it.

    If you like FPSs, then get a PC. There aren't many hardcore shooters on 360(and Halo 3 ISN'T hardcore despite what many fanboys think)

    From what I see, you mainly sell the Wii because your brother won't play it lol, I would NEVER sell my Wii for that reason, I'm also nowdays playing mario galaxy and I can't get enough of it - xbox games are much like PC ones - same type.
    I have fun playing with friends that are not stuck with the "for kids" title - it's just friendly, and not all blood and stuff - you don't need to kill to be mature.
    Actually, yesterday, for the first time my brother actually started playing the wii sports, and I'm SURE he'll play super smash bros brawl when I get it [​IMG]
    Anyway, if your taste is about shooting and killing- get xbox360.
    If your taste is more thinking and having fun without the need to kill - Wii.

    360 has a lot more games and the games are of better quality but wii has some games that are really good too like SMG...and...umm...SMG...and....uhhhh....



    keep your wii til hristmas time then sell it to some parents that one for their kid but can't find in the store...you could get a lot of money for it that way or you could sell it at a fair price and make some kid really happy...dont sell it to a store...

    My friend loves halo, but he got a wii just for brawl (he even said that!). The way he goes on about brawl updates and shit at school, it's like life has no meaning without it!

    i think you could get more for the wii by selling it on ebay or something rather than selling it to a store

    getting an xbox 360 is probably the smartest you can do. got one myself 2 weeks ago and i just love it. with live most of the games never get boring like halo 3 for example (been playing it so much on live i'v only reached the 4th level on the campagin). and now that Christmas is coming around there is allot of great games for the 360 coming out like assasian's creed, mass effect, naruto: rise of a ninja, call of duty 4, FF: XI, Rock Band, guitar hero 3, kane & Lynch: Dead Men and Need for speed: Pro Street. and i think you could get more for the wii by selling it on ebay or something rather than selling it to a store

    Note: i have a wii to but it's usually just collecting dust on the shelf

    if your computer can run good games, a 360 is a waste.

    360 is probably a waste of money if you have a good computer that can play games - most games are exactly like PC games.
    If that's the type of games you like - don't spend money on consoles.
    I bought my Wii cause the Wii has special games that you will never find to PC - when I say special, I don't mean by graphics or just that it is a new version of some game (GTA), it has unique games that you won't find for PC.
    I wouldn't sell my Wii anyways [​IMG] But you if you don't like the unique games for the Wii, you better keep the money you get from it lol.
