View Full Version : Store I can get a Wii from?

I have been looking for one since Christmas and so far I am SOL. All I want is the standard package, none of this $650 bundle crap there trying to force people into buying.
Anybody know a good store to call/go to that might actually have one?

Gamestop and other similar stores get shipments on Tuesday. Usually in the morning, most gamestop people will tell you, just be there first.

We got ours from eBay for $350 shipped, brand new. We sat and watched auctions for 3 days and bid on like 20 of them before we won ours. If you go that route I guess you just have to be patient.

Hmm, I may be able to hook you up. Cheri (my girlfriend) works at Target, and although she can't put in orders for them, she can get a hold of one as soon as the store opens. Lemme talk to her, and I'll let you know, David. :)

Yeah.. it's all luck in getting them.
Ingenious marketing by Nintendo though, create a ton of demand and limited supply. I mean, it's been two years since the release and they still can't keep them on the shelves.

Toys-r-us... I got mine there. They did make you buy one other thing with it, but that was needed anyway. I got WII play so I had a second wiimote and some extra games.

Exactly how I got my Wii. My Bro worked at Target, and kinda hid one away for me.

I got my Wii from the HMV outlet at the mall next to my apartment. It doesn't have all the bundled crap - but that was a year ago and I'm not certain about the deals now. The big stores like Target, Walmart, Bestbuy, EB are the places you should look for first - but the next stops should be really wierd ones - see if your local supermarket has an electronics section, or some other videostores that also carry games - you'll be surprised what you can find.

I can find you one if you want... Target had like 60 when I got mine. All of which were sold in that same day.
