    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.

    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.
