As a family we had a Nintendo Wii and built up a full collection of games and accessories.

Now that the kids are a bit older we have got a different console so we are looking to sell the Wii.

What is the best way to sell it and where: everything as a bundle or separate, facebook marketplace, ebay, trade in game store?

Any advice would be appreciated.

    Honestly, they are not worth much. Probably as a bundle on FB market place or similar.

    Put it on fb as a bundle but you'll probably struggle to give it away. They're just too old and worthless

    Have to agree with previous posters. They turn up a lot in charity shops and bundles are usually sold for around the £20 mark. if you have the fit board and all that guff, you may get a little more

    Just go through ebay and check sold listings of each of the games you have, just to make sure you do not have any rarer games that are worth something. Then just whack the lot on FB marketplace.
  • What games do you have? Some are actually worth decent money still.

    I'd recommend FB too though, no ebay charges and you can just have them pick up or you drop off.

    I've got about 40 games, 4 controllers and nunchuks, Wii fit, 3 Skylanders games with portals and around 40 figures, Disney infinity with portal and around 10 figures.
  • Well if you have any Mario/Zelda games then just check up on the 'ebay sold' prices so you don't go mugging yourself off.

    My guesstimate of what you have said without knowing every game you have would be £50+

    I bought a wii bundle just after christmas... 30 games, 2 wheels, controllers, 2 nunchucks, some of those skylander monsters and the platform, microphone, board etc... for £60... seemed a good deal compared to ebay sold listings and had mario carts and land.

    Then sold a few of the games i didnt want to 'webuybooks' and got £10 and a few pennies back. Have some more games to try that way too.

    i'dsay give it a go on facebook

    Buyers like CEX pay a pittance on buying the games but sell some at 10 times the buying in price, so any I don't want will go to charity.

    Have a look at CEX's selling prices (you can choose a list in price order) to see which games are 'valuable'. I want Pikmin 2 but refuse to pay £18 for a game I saw go from £8, to £14, then £18 and £20, but it's down to £18 again, so I'll wait.

    Skylanders packs are fetching quite high prices.

    Just a wee update for anyone else that is looking.
    I had a look on ebay and picked out the best games and sold them for around £10 each so over £100 on these games.
    I then sold everything else for £150 on facebook marketplace.
    So a bit more effort but sold everything for over £250.
