    They import them in large amounts. I use to get them for 40 cents for every dollar the truth is any wholesale source that is reputable would work you just need money to buy decent quantity. Don't think the sources would list their prices on a website tho only lazy people think that way. You need to actually make a call and speak with people and build business relationships that way you can negotiate your price.

    But that is the hard part everything else is 123. Getting rid of inventory is piece of cake. :)

    Hope this was helpful

    If anyone tells you that they can buy them in bulk for a much lower than retail price, they are straight up lying to you, such as Android0007. I've worked in games for many years. You can Not buy them wholesale. Billion dollar companies like Walmart can't even get a discount. Walmart for example, probably makes like $3.00 per sale off a Wii System.

    The gaming industry has strict control over their prices, even more so than Apple has control over their own products being sold from the manufacturers.

    There are fake Wii's on the market, but not very much.

    Your a fool understand the different types of markets. ALMOST EVERY PRODUCT is owned by Corporations and they all manufacturer their products to other retail stores/corporations for example a regular person like myself or you won't be able to by shit. For ex, try opening up a videogame store you can't because gamestop will own you the same way they owned Funcoland, the same way Netflix owned Blockbuster. This is where the GREY MARKET comes in where people like ME and others get the hookup through connections that we will NEVER speak of and yes serious business owners do get the AUTHENTIC PRODUCTS from the Grey Market that is what you see everyday on ebay.

    This is a way of life it's how our economy survives and how people feed their families how can you say you cannot buy in bulk for lower prices? Maybe not you but plenty other can and know how to.

    Do you even understand price differences when it comes to importing/exporting and fluctuation of the dollar?Imagine when PS2 first came out it was $499 and you bought 50 wholesale you could have sold all 50 on Ebay for close to $6000 a piece just because you HELD IT. 50x6000= $300,000.

    Just gotta be smart and have a connection.

    Like he said. the real connections no body will give up. My dad sell trail cameras that he gets wholesale and he will never give them up to anyone so i would not expect a person to give up his connections for wii's unless he was getting out of the game. i just wanted to know if they are real and if it really is possible for these game systems. I have always heard a mix of whether it can be done or not. Thanks for the post.

    It takes some time to build these wholesale relationships and NO ONE is going to give that up.

    You've always got to consider the "made up some codez ;)" option when it comes to ebay and strangely priced products.
