    I guess it really depends on where you live, as I've been seeing abundant stock of Wiis around since New Year.

    I was at Best Buy the other day and they had like 2 pallets full of them sitting in front of the store with a pallet of Wii Fits next to it. I live in Northern NJ.

    In some places you still have to order them, otherwise you really don't have a chance of getting one. Amazing really. The place really matters though... I remember seeing full stocks on the other side of the country while I was waiting for my order to arrive!

    I'm pretty sure they'll get sold out again when it gets closer to the Christmas season.

    I still can't find one on the shelves unless you walk in the day they arrive here in town, and I live in the 16th largest metro area in the states.

    I haven't seen any since I got mine on launch day, and this weekend at Costco I saw a huge pallet of them. I thought they were just empty boxes, like the kind you usually see at Costco, but they were filled. I also saw a guy buying one at Future Shop

    Craigslist for my area has posts of people selling more new Wii's than i can count. Theres even people selling them new for $225 just because they got it as a birthday present and dont want it.
    Im sure all of that will change during christmas. It will be back to limited quantities or $500+ bundles with games that not even a blind person would play.

    Most the asses on Craigslist around here ask $300-325 for a Wii and then $110 for Wii Fit both which are an insult. I tend to pop them up in a ton of Firefox tabs and slap em with enough spam/rule break posts they get pulled for trying to scam people.

    oddly, they're still fairly rare as of last week in my city of 45,000. Walmart and Zellers were both out as of last week but they have had Wiis in stock from time to time over the last couple months, they just keep selling. I suppose once a certain market saturation has been reached the demand dies down..But then again, if Nintendo was short again this holiday season, it wouldn't look good at all. After all, they've had a YEAR to catch up.. [​IMG]
