Looking For Some Used Wii Games?

If your in the market for some good used Wii games on the cheap, then you’ve come to the right place.  Considering the price you have to pay for console games these days, it makes you wonder, if the business model for Nintendo, has been lifted from the corporate offices of the Shick company from a few years ago.  The shaver companies, a long time ago figured out, that they could make a lot more money on the blades then they could for their razors themselves.  The razors were a one time sale, but blades wear out, and need to be replaced.

I suppose I shouldn’t pick on Nintendo too much, as they’re not the first ones to sell their products this way, and they’re no where close to the worst offenders using this marketing approach.  I refer of course to the computer printer companies.  Sure, we’ll sell you a top of the line multi function printer for only $59.99.  But wait, oh you want more ink for that printer.  Well, that will be $69.99.  YIKES!  Well, if every there was a market looking for a black market, that was it.

Buy, woah, how I digress.

Let’s get back.  Cheap Wii games are what were really talking about here.  The good news, is that they’re really not that hard to find.  As a matter of fact given the multitude of websites hawking cheap games, I’m amazed you managed to find this one.  Irregardless, the point is, there is more than one way to get your self a new Wii game (at least new to you) without forking out $69.99, or whatever the game distributors are gouging consumers for these days.

My number one favorite, is just to cool my heals, and take a few patience pills.  In other words, I don’t need to be the first computer geek at the the gadget store to buy the newest whiz bang computer game on the market.  If you insist on being on the bleeding edge of games releases, then your going to pay for the privilege.  If your willing to play things cool, and wait at least a month (maybe 2 or 3 or more), then you should be able to get the same game for about half price.  Not every game does this, but they all drop in price eventually, and that’s the time to swoop in.  While there may be other ways to get good used Wii games on the cheap, this is the best by far.  You can deal with reputable retailers, and get a complete warranty and shrink wrap and everything 😉
