Are Wii U’s rare?
With less than 14 million units shipped and trade ins appearing, the Wii U is on its way to become a fairly rare console. Almost on par with the Saturn and Dreamcast.
Are Wii U’s good?
The console works great and I saved a lot of money buying used. The Wii U is not being made anymore, so they go up in value for collectors. The console itself doesn’t have the best graphics or the most comfortable/intuitive controller, but the games are some of the best in the industry.
Why are Wii U’s so expensive?
The Wii U went out of production about six months before the Switch launched and Nintendo did a buyback of unsold inventory from most retailers. So new units are difficult to find. Mine sold on EBay for 495.
Why did the Wii U fail?
Compared to the Xbox One and Playstation 4, the Wii U had worse graphics and less processing power. This meant developers would have to cater to the Wii U’s limitations when developing third party games.
Will Wii U be a collectors item?
There’s a good chance the Wii U will become one of the most popular consoles to collect for some time in the not-so-distant-future. While most of the games are still reasonably priced, they will likely continue to rise as collectors continuing seeking out all its obscurities.

Which is better Wii U or switch?
In summary, Wii U is better in both in terms of game lineup and gameplay. The Switch has a better display and slightly better hardware, but obviously gameplay and games are more important, so while the Switch is a very good console, it can’t compete with the best console in gaming history.
Are Wii U’s still sold?
The Wii U is not being made anymore, so they go up in value for collectors. The console itself doesn’t have the best graphics or the most comfortable/intuitive controller, but the games are some of the best in the industry.
