    Is this a fair price for a used Wii?

    I'm looking at a buying a used Wii that is 2-3 months old and in very good condition. It comes with the basic hardware bundle plus a second Remote Plus controller and component video cable. Also, it is unmodded.

    Is $125 a fair price for this? Or should I try to do better given the recent price cut on the Wii?

    price is subjective only to the buyer and his/her wallet...

    That's like saying there is no market price for anything.

    Perhaps I should rephrase my question. Is $125 above, below or at the market for the package described in the OP?

    no, it means is it worth it for YOU to purchase at that price, nothing more...

    Well...For comparison you can buy a factory refurb from EB or Game Stop for $120. It's not the worst deal seeing as how it includes the second controller and cable but it's also not the best.

    Really? Even though it comes with 2 of the newer Remote Plus controllers?

    I'm glad I asked, I figured this was a good price given that a new Wii would cost 170 + 35 for an extra Wiimote controller + 5 for component cable, so about $210 + tax.

    If the person is willing to wait and look around they will find one for 70-80 for a used one.. I say 100-120 with one remote and sell the other seperately for like $30-35 or add it to the bundle and add an extra 25-30 on top.. It's all in your sales pitch bud.. how you present it and how you make the buyer feel.. you gotta make them feel like its a great deal..
