I want to get a Wii to play the new Zelda game, but I am on a pretty tight budget. I have only about $150 to spend, so my best option appears to be buying a used Wii at GameStop for $80 and buying Zelda and the motion plus.
My only concern is the reliability of a used console. Are there any common console failures that I might be at risk for with the Wii?
My main alternative would be to get the black Wii + Mario bundle, but then I would have to wait to get Zelda, which would not be the end of the world. The last thing I want is to get stuck with a broken console because I was cheap.
Most of my Nintendo stuff in the past has been high quality and I am not particularly worried, I was just wondering what common types of Wii failures occur, and what to watch out for.
