Creative Ways to get rid of the Wii

Let’s face it, we’re never going to grow up and out of our gadgets. I just can’t wait to get hold of the new Wii U, and it’s innovative hand-held touch screen controller. This will revolutionize how we play and interact with the Wii U, rather than being constantly wary of hurling the Wii remote controller through the TV, by accident or not. If you've been considering getting rid of the Wii to make room for the new Wii U, this can open up a whole new range of creative possibilities. Read on for some hard-core inspiration:

Super Smash:
Of course, you can just throw it away, but where’s the fun in that? Have an epic time destroying the Nintendo Wii. Hurl it around a room, or select some choice blunt objects to hammer it with, drive over it, or throw it into a brick wall. Or even, like a couple of YouTube geniuses did, dress up like Mario and Luigi and obliterate it in front of a whole crowd of people! Be as destructive as you want, and film and upload it onto YouTube, so others can enjoy your Wii K.O. too.

If you’d rather be more creative, you can still get the most out of the Wii by customizing it with stickers or a printed picture. Or turn your Wii into a work of art, as homage to a favorite game or character. There are some truly epic designs out there online. One involved an Incredible Hulk figure, seemingly smashing his way through the Wii, painted to look like a destroyed city. The best by far was a double-sided Mario tribute, painted with scenes from the game, a Mario figure protruding from the middle, and a green pipe which doubles as a Wii remote control holder. Mamma mia!

Here Wii go!

However, if you’re worried you won’t be able to afford the new Wii U, why not sell your Wii? Check out Music Magpie, a money-exchange website. They offer a great price for your old Wii and even it’s games too, to give you a high-scoring cash total. It’s free to send it off to them too, which is a bonus when many auction or marketplace sites require postage and packaging prices and hassle. If you have over 25 items to sell, you can even get them to collect it all themselves!

This is what Wii would like to do, how about U?
