I am in Toronto Canada,never seen a single Wii in stock
I'm in ottawa and I've seen quite a lot of them in EBs and some zellers..
you just need to know where to look.
I passed by a couple places yesterday, Gamespot, Best Buy, Circuit City, and Target, theyre all out. I'm in Palm Springs, CA. I would have thought there would be plenty. DS Lites... now I see like 10-30 a store!
i live in oregon and i havent seen any in stores since i bought mine lauch day
I see them in my walmart quite often. I just know the days they get the shipment of them thats all.
It's an engineered shortage and it's working.
Sony tried the same thing, only no one wanted the PS3.
I've seen enough around vancouver iirc.. order one from amazon.ca ?
I've seen more UFOs than Wiis here!
The last two times I've been in Wal*Mart I've seen two Wiis in stock, they were not the same Wiis. I doubt I happened to be in there right after a shipment both times although anything is possible. My market is probably starting to settle. It could also be that it's mid semester in a college town so fewer people are thinking about video games. I'll bet they'll be more sold out around November.
A friend of mine is going to the states on Oct 10-17, Can anyone give me any advice to give him as to where to look for (chains, etc), days to look at, or any other tips? I'd REALLY like to get a Wii since last time my father went to the states (4 months ago) there weren't any in stock...
Here's to hoping that if he finds one it won't be D2C (No hope, eh?)
Same for me, except I bout mine in Calgary and haven't seen any in Calgary or any other place I've been, including Vancouver, Edmonton, and all over Florida.
Come to the mid-west. Like I said, I've seen them in stock in Target and Wal*Mart every time I've been in there for the last two weeks. never before that though. Nintendo of America headquarters store in NYC will probably have them if they're going to be there.
You're going to get a D2C though, sorry to burst your bubble.
Walmart always has 3-4 instock and Zellers too everytime I'm in there for the last month or so.
Louisville, KY here...and I shop at places like Meijer, Target, eyeball but rarely buy (due to their corrupt crap across the board) Gamestop/EB, Toys R Us, and a few others. Outside of 1 Wii in stock and being sold at the counter at the time at one of the Gamestop's I have not seen one still to date just on a shelf where you can grab it and go.
Due to this assholes on craigslist are still trying to screw people for $300-350 for them on the local board. If I'm vindictive that day I'll make a post showing people were to order one for the actual price just because I enjoy the jerks whining in a cuss out email.
Go to your local wal-mart and ask them when they'll restock them (Usually it's Tuesday or Thursday around noon)
Tell him to check Wal-mart and Target. I've seen Wiis in stock at both those places (though Wal-mart had alot more). Get him to check around Thursday-Friday at Wal-Mart. That's when I got mine.
thanks a bunch for all the replies, I'm gonna tell him to check every Wal-mart/Target/EB/Gamestop/whatever he comes across, he dare not come back here without a wii... Any peripherals you recommend getting it with? games?
