Do you have an EB Games or Gamestop nearby? That's where I got mine, first day I went out looking back in May. From what I gather talking to the salespeople, they get a weekly shipment of them, only a few, but they have the most consistent supply. If you go in and ask, I'm sure they'd tell you when they usually get their shipments in. Otherwise, keep checking the usual stores, Target, Circuit City, Best Buy, etc., especially keep an eye out in their weekly ads. If they have them in the ads, there will be at least a couple at the store, since it's required of them to actually have them if they advertise them. Most of all though, stay persistent, you'll get one pretty quick if you keep your eyes open.

Good luck!

I think we have 4 Wiimotes, 3 nunchuks, and 3 classic controllers.

I found a site called wiialerts.com that is supposed to e-mail/text you when Wii's for whatever stores you select from their list is available. can't vouch personally if it works or not as I wasn't near my computer when I got my first e-mail alert. but I've been reading that Amazon gets a weekly shipment (I think Wednesdays?)and they're usually gone in about a half hour or so online. I saw a Wii at Target back in October and I remember remarking to myself, wow, they have a Wii in stock. did I get it? Nope

wiitracker.com is supposed to work pretty well.



I'm sooo glad my niece/nephew wanted a DS instead, we were actually able to find those.

Cool stuff.


So I don't need to own a total of 4 remotes? I could use just one? ...for Tennis (4 players)?

Oh yeah, Wii sports all have Vs computer options.

so 1 needed. But obviously, if you want to pay against peeps, you'll need more than 1. You'll also need a nunchuk for the boxing game, but I think the wii comes with one anyway.


By the by, if you dont already know, new Wiis are being shipped with rubber wii remote cases for extra safety, but those who bought a wii before these were included can order up to 4 absolutely free here.

Havent recieved mine yet, but plenty of peeps have told me they have. You just need your serial number.

I've been wanting a Wii for awhile now. But I did the responsible adult thing and bought a dining room table for my new apartment instead

Goddamn.

Wii has been out for a year, how can it still be so hard to get?

And why can't Nintendo supply enough of them?

And fuck these people who buy all of them up and then put them on ebay for twice the retail price. You deprive people of being able get a wii and then you make the desperate ones pay twice the retail price.

Damn.

I don't know if I posted this before, but here it goes...
If you live in the States, check Target's ad for that weekend, the ad comes out on Thurdays, I believe. If the are advertised on that ad, the store will have them available....but not many...prob 3 or 4.

I spoke to an employee, and she told me that they have them in stock, but they are in such small quantities that they keep them for the weekend ads.



Btw, thanks for the 411 MooMoo.

The thing that bothers me is that Nintendo has to know this is happening. The Wii is the most desirable video game system this year for many people, largely because of its reasonable price. I'm not the most business-minded person, but I can understand why in the early days Nintendo wanted to make fewer than were being demanded. Now, though, there are probably some people looking for a Wii for the second holiday season in a row, and if they can't find one, they're either going to get desperate and turn to ebay or give up altogether. Either way, they're not going to be happy about it, and that's why I don't think Nintendo's strategy is going to be good for them in the long run.

Can you tell I'm gearing up to teach business writing next semester?

I can't stand how they label the Wii's "With 5 sports game FREE!" or something like that. We know betterit's Wii Sports and it's supposed to come with the Wii.
