I am not one for trading anything in to retail, and I as well have grown tired of the monopoly that is GameStop, but I got an email in today that said 50% more for trades, including systems. I called a local store for details and confirmation and he said that is true with their Wii U normal trade value and the bonus 50%, it would trade for just over 280$. As a college student, about to live on my own in a month and half way through paying off a PS4, this has really enticed me since I can get not too far off from what I originally paid and I wouldn't be losing a lot of money. I could pay off the PS4 without worrying about spending my cash on it and I could wait for the Wii U to have a larger library before buying into it. When it comes to trades, I am not one to be so easily enticed, but this has enticed me since I care very little for the system and I do feel their will be a price drop soon since it's so close to the PS4's price. What do you think?
I don't own a Wii U, but this ^.
If you're not planning to buy one next month for Pikmin I might argue that you opinion, like mine, is of questionable use :P
Not for me.
$280 sounds like a good price -- I bought one when they first came out; I can't remember how much I paid for the premium system. Still, that seems to be about in the ballpark. Go ahead and pay off your PS4. Or, buy 2.5 months' worth of groceries. :)
Groceries? This is store credit to a GameStop we are talking about here. LOL JK
@mrpilkington: Ooh, real good point. Though you'd think GameStop would have some sort of promotion where they sold Hot Pockets and "GAMR FUEL" in-store.
They should bring GamerFuel back. That stuff wasn't bad and I liked mixing it with Whiskey. Tasted great!
