With the holidays coming up, inflated Wii prices on Ebay are to be expected. Yet, the prices that Wiis are going for right now (and it's only late November!) are surprising even us. They seem to be selling somewhere in the range of $500 to $650, and that's without even factoring in the shipping costs.

We knew that the situation was dire in the UK, but we didn't realize how deep the desperation was around these parts until checking out these exorbitant prices. It's just madness that a one-year-old console is going for at least twice its worth. This also seems like a huge jump from last week's Ebay sales, during which the average cost for a Wii was $377 (according to Terapeak).

The holidays are a scary time, indeed. Run while you still can.
