    Wow, that's one heck of a deal.

    For those looking to buy one for Christmas...well, you should definitely snag that deal.

    If only they were that cheap on normal days. [​IMG]

    Eh, I don't see the point of paying more than $150 for a brand new system... Guess I'm just too used to the gold old days when console prices weren't ridiculously high.

    You mean the good ol' days when min wage was $3.35, stamps were 22 cents each and pretty damn nice car cost about 11k and Ronald Reagan was president?

    Damn this is a very nice deal. Too bad I don't really care for the minigolf game though.

    The "Currently out of stock" sign hasn't come off the Wii display at my local Sam's club all year. Perhaps they will have 1 of these bundles available on black Friday per store.

    Each store/location is different, before I was calling many different stores all over the united states to see how wii stock is... Some places had 10 and they have had them for a while others had none in.

    This isn't just a nice deal, this is an excellent one - you're saving shitload of cash this way.
    'course, I don't need it (and can't buy it), but still.

    I think Lazycus is right on this one. Each store will probably only have a couple bundles for people to fight over at 5AM. They're really just trying to get you in the door.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Owned, heed his words m3rox. Time to whip out my economics knowledge and say that's a psychological effect due to the general positive trend in inflation over time. Therefore money has a higher value than it did in your day, and it feels like you're getting ripped off when it's actually the same price relative to wages. [​IMG]

    And agreed, that's an amazing deal.
