All I have to say is.. HA HA HA.

I sold my Wii at the beginning of Dec, just at the right time. I was so happy that I made a profit on a console I bought 12 months ago.. Cashback!

Serves them Ebay vultures right. Seems Nintendo did the right thing and stuffed the retail outlets with wii units to kill the greedy market bullies.
