I just paid 800 for a basic wii U. Am I an idiot?

I already met him at Walmart. Apparently he had to get it out of layaway after I gave him the money.

Yeah I got an extra. It might fetch more later but I'd be willing to sell for a decent profit now. Plus I like ya!

There are a bunch rotting on the shelves at Target, but who cares, your kid will remember how much you paid for the dust collector and be even more grateful.

That seems excessive. Especially when they were still in stock at plenty of places online. Be more patient kiddos.

I don't get it. PS3 bundled with four awesome games is $200. Would get way more play than a Wii U... I force my kids to play the Wii just so I can justify the money I spent on it all those years ago. I want to get it down to about a dollar an hour and still have a long ways to go...

I've probably played my Wii a total of 30 hours. By no means would that justify my purchase.

A PS3 would get played more by an adult, what with movies and all, but the kids wanted a Wii U and a PS3 is not an adequate replacement for that. If they want Mario, they HAVE to buy the Wii U. I'd buy a PS3 over a Wii U (That's what i did) but you can't convince a kid that it's a better deal to get a PS3 over their much coveted Wii U.

You are not an idiot, but I think paying $800 was an idiotic decision.

For some reason I don't believe you did this.

Not to undersell. I would have sold mine to you for 650.

For what age? I thought the same thing (that a Wii U would be better for kids) but our kids love the PS3 and there are tons of fun PS3 games aimed at kids. Maybe for really young kids Wii is better but overall I think there is still tons more value in the PS3. Or even Xbox with Kinect.

Kids covet anything and everything they see on tv that looks remotely cool. Buy the Wii U hype is aimed at parents...but this for your kids or your don't really love them. Kids aren't consumers...parents are.

If anything, you didn't pay enough. You practically stole it from that poor guy and should be ashamed.
