I've been to most of the local Best Buys, Circuit Cities and Wal-Marts with no luck. Is there some secret location to purchase a Wii? Is there a reliable place on-line? We're thinking of moving the kids up from the DS Lite to the Wii for Christmas, but I have struck out so far.

I used http://www.xpbargains.com/wii_locator.php to get mine. Basically, it keeps track of all the stores' websites and tells you if any of them have any available.
There are other websites as well.
http://wiitracker.com/ seems to have some available as I speak. Of course that means buying it online, but that's the only sure-fire way I've seen.
It took me a couple weeks before I got onto xpbargains.com at the same time that a deal was available.

Usually sites like Cheap Ass Gamer get the sales fliers a few days early, and if they're advertising that Wiis are in stock, camp out at the store entrance at like 2 AM the first day that the flier is advertising for. I am serious.

Last Christmas I got mine just by pure luck. My mother went to Future Shop early in the morning a few days before Christmas, and they just happened to have gotten a few in. I went in later that same day and they were already gone, so if you are looking to buy in store make sure you hit every electronic store first thing in the morning every morning.

Also Good luck!

Is the Wii going to be America's Number One Christmas gift for the third year in a row? That's unbelievable ...



Parquet Wishes and Leprechaun Dreams

The most hilarious thing about Tommy Dreamer is that everyone else in WWE, from Shelton Benjamin to dudes who haven't even debuted yet, has a T-shirt available. WWE doesn't even bother printing up a T-shirt for Tommy Dreamer, A MAN WHOSE GIMMICK IS WEARING A T-SHIRT WHILE WRESTLING. And why is that? Because not a god damn person would ever pay money for a Tommy Dreamer shirt. Not even his own mother. As a result he usually ends up wearing a shirt that says "WRESTLEMANIA 24" or "JUDGEMENT DAY." I think it's time for Tommy Dreamer to just print up a T-shirt that says "UPCOMING PAY PER VIEW"

Indeed they did! Toys R Us is shipping one right now to me and by using PayPal, I saved $25, too! Thanks so much!

I was kind of surprised to see this, since I have started seeing some Wiis in stock in stores around us. We got ours because my sister-in-law's fiance worked in retail. He was kind enough to nab one for us when they got it off the truck.

Congrats on obtaining one! Our family has really enjoyed ours.

I got my bundle last year using wiitracker, but our hard to find item right now is Wii Fit.

Now I need to get the Wii Fit to go with this. Are there any similar tracking sites?

I'm also surprised by this, or at least confused. I was looking for Wii Fits a few months ago and realized that not only were they hard to find but Wii consoles themselves were scarce too. Fast forward a couple of months and I see Wii Fits and Wii consoles laying around at every Target, Best Buy, and Circuit City I go to.

I think I've decided now that they're just scarce at certain times of year. Right before Christmas it will probably be pretty difficult to find either of these items. Still a little shocking though that people are camping out for Wiis YET AGAIN in 2008. And to think I gave up Wii arbitrage years ago thinking it was a sinking ship!

I found one for sale at a local Blockbuster Video; that may be an idea: check your local video store.

I just got this game, and I've been playing it for several hours. Allow me to say that it's really...really...really good.
