Which console should I sell / trade-in for a Wii U

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Which console should I sell / trade-in for a Wii U

It boils down to Halo 4 vs. BluRay + free online. I would sell the Xbox but I wouldn't have bought one in the first place.



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

VIDEO GAMES RULE!


Sell a neighbour's child/sibling/kidney. When one of them gets distracted.



sell the ps3, cause you can get more money for it, and buy day one the Wii U it needs to get a large user base to be good for third party's

If you do not feel the need to play Halo 5 then trade in your 360. If you do then forget about it.

I suggest not buying a WiiU because you obviously not into gaming anymore. Not like PS3 and 360 lacking quality new titles to play.

I already have most of my Wii U pre-order paid off, Deluxe for me, its a matter of what I use it for, the 360 and PS3 get little use, not much of it interests me, so to me, why let it collect dust? I have spent near enough $5,000 on my gaming PC and enjoy the heck out of it. Do I care about Halo? No, not truly, a killer, all my FPS gaming is on the PC, we have multiple 3DS systems and the Wii as well, which we need to keep to transfer digital purchases right now (however it might work). 

Anyway, I am crazy into gaming and have bought atleast 2 games a month this year, not even counting steam purchases, I could justify to myself letting the PS3 sit there until I decide to make use of it, but definetly not the 360, though im considering messing with the kinect connected to my PC and seeing whats out there. I can't justify letting them both collect dust, and while trading them in is easy, I ususally sell on ebay so I wouldnt take that hit.

I chose my 360, with a couple games I got near $300 for the system. This was a 250GB, Kinect bundle.

Game Stop has a promotion (double money on traded in consoles at the moment, which made it an easy choice.

I am tempted to trade in the PS3 also since I just haven't used it and a quick $190-$200 would be worth it, but will need to pick out some more games (Currently have Nintendo Land coming, AC3 and NSMB U and Black Ops II)

I'd consider ME3, but I am protesting it due to EA. I own the previous two iterations on the PC and was willing to wait for the Wii U version to throw more support to Nintendo (and also not to have Origin on my PC) but what they did with the whole collection is garbage, so I am going to boycott them for a while.

I wouldnt have traded in either, because they never give you enough. But apparently you got double money so thats good :). Comes to preference in gaming to me. I do occasionally sell my consoles to friends though.



If you're like me (and lets hope you're NOT) you'll regret it down the line and have to buy the thing back again. I can't tell you how many times I've done that.



Dont buy the Wii-U at launch (nor sell the 360/PS3), wait out for a bit so its gaming library expands enough to have at least imo 5 "Close to perfect titles".

For me the only game (s) that seems to be close to a perfect title would be Pikmin 3 and NSMB-U but that isnt saying much imo (especially not even 6 months after NSMB2's release..).

Personally as for me, I'm planning to buy a Wii-U sometime around when the next 3D mario or the next SSB comes out but as of late I would say the best time to buy a game system would be in its 2nd year at least.

I really wont, the system morphed into a netflix/hulu/amazon/etc box, and nothing more to me, with Nintendo TVii I will have those things and more, I am a primary PC gamer followed by Nintendo at a very very close second.
