I realize this is in the wrong section, but I know the FS section doesn't get much traffic, and it's only a 24hr bid.

Anyway, new Wii for sale. USA only:

Oh I saw that... it's just funny to ask a guy if he's tired of his Wii.

Do they really fetch a profit on eBay?

Nah, I dig it. Graphics could be better though.

I guess we'll see.

Just figured one of you guys may be interested since they're hard to find.

If I hadn't already bought one. As for graphics. We'll have to see when people start coding properly for it. Currently the best looking game is Zelda which was coded for the GC anyway.

Nah, zelda doesn't look so hot for the Wii. Impressive for a GC title, though.

Rayman, Madden, and Excitetruck look better to me than Zelda.

Stay away from Call of Duty 3 for the Wii. (and thats the best of the FPS....)


Wii Sports is EXTREMELY fun.

Well, since it's now officially bidding higher than retail... count me out. You can get one here if you wait a few days and know the guys at EB.

When you buy retail, you have to pay tax. It's still going for less than what I paid for it, including tax.

I smell a scam.

It sold to a zero feedback bidder for $380 whose address on google maps focuses on the center of the street, with the nearest house 100 feet away...

always check the new zero feedback bidder button. I hope you get paid though. Good luck

Elaborate?

Think he's tell you not to accept any bids with someone with zero feedback...I believe there a button you can push to not accept bids from someone who has zero feedback

Where is said button?

When you sell an item on ebay, it is an option to not allow -1 or lower ratings.

Also, there are plenty of wii bundles out there for sale, just not the actual wii by itself.

Instead, to relist these items you will need to start from the beginning of the listing process, either through the "Sell Your Item" process or through your third party listing service. We know that this is an inconvenience and we apologize for the negative impact it may cause you. We are working on tools to allow you to relist your items without starting from the beginning, but they are not available at this time.

German ebay has a feature where you can sell the item to the second-highest bidder if the first one didn't take it - is that not available for ebay.com?

Oh, I believe you - no worries there. :)

You USED to be allowed to ban anyone with ZERO feedback from your auctions. They've taken that feature out, which means that bid-bots and scammers can now feel free to pester you with bids from 1-minute-old accounts. :(

It is, unless of course the auction was completely pulled "for my safety".

Ah, well, sold it to a co worker for $300
