For me, the Wii was actually easier to get/find than the PS3.
If you're in the NYC area, the Nintendo store gets shipments almost every day. I got it like a week after the release date. I only waited 30min in the morning.
I also read somewhere that if you check the sunday papers and if the stores advertise the Wii than most likely they will have it in stock. I'm not too sure exactly which stores though.
