A Japanese Store Is Selling the Nintendo Wii and DS for Under $1 USD
Both consoles were discontinued years ago.
Out of production for nearly a decade, the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS are being sold in Japan for less than $1 USD. One Twitter user shared photos of the devices on sale at a Japanese retailer for mere cents — signs show the Nintendo DS priced at ¥100 JPY (approximately 93 cents USD), the Nintendo Wii for ¥50 JPY (approximately 46 cents USD) and even the Sony PlayStation 2 for ¥200 JPY (approximately $1.86 USD).
As the Nintendo Switch sells out amidst the Animal Crossing craze, it is no surprise that Nintendo‘s outdated consoles are discounted for almost nothing. That being said, another Twitter user pointed out that the Japanese phrase ”ジャンク” seen on the sale signs translate to “junk,” meaning the consoles are likely broken and are being sold for their spare parts.
