i dont think the wii needs a price cut but instead should have official case replacements instead of having to void your warranty.

on a side note whats with the original ps3 controller in that picture? those things are ugly. i like the ps4 controller.

When correctly softmodded, the Wii is actually one of the cheapest entertaining systems around. :slight_smile:

Sometimes, one would rip their own games on to a hard drive so they load faster. The dvd drives in these consoles suck. Softmodding a Wii allows you to do just that. And of course use the damn thing as a dvd player if you want to, since THEY didn’t want you to.

wii is very suited for younger kids and everyone, KINECT is more for teenagers and up, IMHO
