Let’s face it: the Wii U is a tad expensive; at its base model, you’ll be getting the console for $50 more than what the original Wii launched for. So, if you find yourself without much cash and don’t like the idea of selling off your old consoles online, Gamestop is one of the only options you can get some cash for the new system. You can view all of the trade-in values for systems for when you trade towards a Wii U console:
|System||Trade-In Value||Nintendo Wii||$50 USD|
|Nintendo 3DS||$90 USD|
|XBOX 360 (Original Model)||$90 USD|
|PS Vita||$90 USD|
|PS3 (Original Model)||$115 USD|
|XBOX 360 (Slim Model)||$115 USD|
|PS3 (Slim Model)||$140 USD|
The games are also up for pre-order, and come at a steep price of $59.99 for most of the games. Games include, and are not limited to, Assassin’s Creed III, New Super Mario Bros. U, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Pikmin 3, Nintendo Land, Mass Effect 3: Wii U Special Edition, and 007: Legends.
