Wii Market Value

Ok, so I'm looking to sell my Wii.
I've decided to make it a package deal with the following:
Console
2 wiimotes
2 nunchuks
1 classic controller
1 Perfect Shot shell
1 Zapper shell
Fan Base with rechargeable battery cradles for wiimotes

And the important parts, the games:
-Unfortunately I don't have any cases or manuals-
Wii Sports (obviously)
Wii Play (obvious again)
No More Heroes
Resident Evil 4
Link's Crossbow Trainer
House of the Dead 2 & 3
Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess

Wiiware:
Opera Browser
(and all the free channels)
My Life as a King
Blazing Lazers
Pokemon Snap
Shinning in the Darkness
Shinning Force 1
Metal Marines
Sin & Punishment
Super Mario RPG
Kid Icarus
Contra 3
Super Metroid

Now, the question is, since I'm planning on selling everything (specifically Ebay) how much should I price this for?

I was thinking $250-$300 for starting, but since I actually plan on listing everything instead of just 11 GAMES!!!!! (which is just Wii Play/Sports) I might be able to haggle for more.
What do you guys think?

    Sell the hard copied games separate.

    You make more money.

    Also, you should have sold during Christmas.

    Seconding THEPAIN73. In general, you're not going to see a lot of extra money for bundling a ton of shit in. And now that the Wii is easy to find in stores everywhere, I doubt you're going to get MORE than $250-300 if you tried to sell everything. You can always try though, and if you fail, lower the price.

    Wiis are fairly easy to find now, and considering you have disc-only games that doesn't help. I wouldn't imagine you'd get more than $350 for this and I think that's being generous.

    The VC games don't really add much as I think people just see them as a bonus.

    I've found that a LOT of the people I know who bought Wiis, meaning not really gamers (which makes them the Wii target market), have only bought one or two VC games, if any. I would love to see some demographic numbers on the VC because I suspect the majority of Wii owners don't care about it, and it's just the 30-35% of gamers who own the console driving up its numbers.
