    Hey there guys.
    So i got really bored with my wii u i haven't used it since last year and i hate that machine..
    One of my friends has a psp and ps2
    The psp's buttons do not work but i will repair it.
    You guys think it's a good idea to trade in my wii u for those 2 consoles
    I am mainly doing those for the SMT and persona games because i love em.
    Played them on emulators but this time i want to try them on actual hardware.
    Of course i will try other exclusives too.
    You think its a good opportunity for a nintendo boy like me to get into Sony's realistic games

    Does not sound like a good deal to me. PSPs and PS2 consoles can be found very cheap, the PSP you are getting offered doesn't even work properly (needs fixing). A WiiU is worth a lot more than those two consoles combined.

    sound like an ok deal if you know you can fix it, tho if it was me i would also ask for a little bit of money to make it more fair deal

    I'd say you're losing for this deal. Especially for the damaged PSP.
    You could maybe get $200 for the WiiU alone, and IMO you're better off selling it alone, and the buy a PSP and a PS2 for cheap from somewhere else, keeping the remaining cash for accessories, games, etc.

    Sell the Wii U

    Buy like a PS3, 360, or even a Xbox One fat ass given they go for about a Wii U.

    Terrible trade.

    I am sorry. Did you ask for advice opinions or did you only want your preconceived notion confirmed?

    Man, guy must have issues if he'd trade a console that can play any retro game he pleases for a... NES.

    Fuck off.

    I think that @NoNAND might have already made the deal, now feels a little bit insecure about his choice and simply came here for reafirmation that he made a good choice. His replies read to me as if he's in "full defensive" mode of justifying his actions.

    @NoNAND: If that's what you're here for, you can have it: You made a great choice there buddy ;)

    I wouldn't trade but in the end, it's your choice.

    I'd personally go for a Vita tho if you're trading it.
    Much better quality and much better when it comes to emulation.

    Thing is you could have bought a functional psp for $40 and a ps2 for $50 tops - via eBay or pawn shop.

    Then you could sell your wiiu, heck even to a pawnshop - and still come out on top with cash in hand.

    Your friend robbed you blind and I hope you choose more honest friends in the future.

    Hate to tell you but you need a true friends/honest friends than the ones you have. Beware!

    You can buy PS2 or PSP for a cheaper price but you are right for one thing: Wii U is boring. That's why I never had one. I had Wii and regret it so I won't buy Wii U. Nintendo Switch and PS4 are fine for me. :) :grog::yay:

    That's a really bad deal... unless you're getting a considerable amount of games and accessories included.
    A working PSP together with a PS2 can be got for less than half what Wii U's still sell for.

    If you didn't do the trade yet (I don't see any confirmation of that assumption someone made here), then you should really first try to get a better deal selling it on craigslist or whatever the preferred social marketplace of your country is. There you can also look up what other consoles go for. Most of those might be in a better condition than that PSP you are being offered.

    @Localhorst86 Wanna be friends? :)

    ...you could pretty much get a PS2, a PS3, a PSP, and a Vita for what Wii U's sell for.
