Any luck finding a Wii?

Soooo I figured 6 months or so later that you should be able to find a Wii pretty easily.


NOPE! There are still none of them in the stores. Is anyone else having trouble finding a Wii?

Got mine on launch day after camping out starting at like 2 or 4 in the morning at the mall. Reason? Best Buy already had a couple hundred people in line by that time. (Though I assume not for the Wii but mostly for the other deals.)

You just need to call everywhere daily and see what they've got/when they're getting more.

haha, you didnt like the controls? I love ps2 controls but I though the Wii might be more involving so I thought I'd be different and order it...

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.

I've already purchased about 6 or 7 of them for friends because the Targets in my area have them on Sunday mornings. They usually have about 25 or so when they are available.

I just went to the Costco in Carlsbad, CA, and saw about 40 of them. They are going for $324.99, which includes the base unit, an extra controller, and Super Paper Mario, which is a decent deal.

Target on Sunday mornings!

where I am wiis are harder to come by then ps3 and elite 360s. I walked into best buy a week ago and couldve bought about 20 of each. They had huge stands setup it was insane...for a second I actually was going to buy one...then i realized the price was going to come down soon...and yes I was right. Target is going to start selling them for 499 along with Circuit City which also includes like 5 Blue ray moves from Sony!

Are you serious the Wii is everywhere. I think it is not worth it. Cant even play DVD's but then again I hardly play games.

Im waiting for the PS3 to get rumble again and then im picking one up.
