The PS4/XBO version also has a physical release as part of Resident Evil Origins Collection (which also has the RE1 remake HD remaster). So it'd probably really just come down to if you want whatever semblance of a manual the Wii versions come with.

Also on PC, but I think only on Steam there.

On Labor Day I stumbled upon a copy of Cyberbike at Half-Price Books in their clearance section. The case was busted but the contents and art are in great shape. I was fortunate to find it and that no one had thought it worth buying.

Does anyone still play with the Wii and anyone still picking up games for it or starting a collection

I still play the Wii. Mario Kart and Kirbys Epic Yarn at the moment. I just purchased Wii Fit+ new on eBay for a little over $20 new. It doesn't come with the balance board because the price is significantly more for that set. However Nintendo's store page as well as their eBay store is selling the Wii Fit U for $25 brand new that comes with the Wii balance board which works for both consoles.

What's this "Golf Training" you mention? searches only show me stuff for Wii Sports.

Sorry!

It’s My Personal Golf Trainer with David Leadbetter;

The NTSC version of this game is (or was) a little pricey. It doesn’t seem too pricey anymore, though.

Great -- thanks! Yeah, I've noticed some of the real rare stuff that aren't especially interesting games have dropped down. I still plan on listing them below for "Affordable Rarities". Those are still interesting and sometime rise in value again later... (although may not be the $15 to $200 rise that we've seen on some systems in the past)

Anybody have any insights on significant PAL or Japan releases that are worth mentioning?
