It was 25$! And I always play old games ANYWAY--my gaming is about as far from cutting edge as can be imagined--and by the time I've worked my way through the backstock of Zelda games, the Wii will hopefully no longer be rarer than hen's teeth.

And I now have a sample of every console in the house, possibly including the Dreamcast (unless it's in a box in the attic at James's) and thus have permanently crossed a geek horizon. And I am at peace with that.
