    Does anyone know (in the U.S.) when more shipments of Wii's will be available?
    I missed getting one on the launch day, [​IMG] , now they are sold out everywhere.. I don't trust buying one on Ebay.
    Anyways the price of one on ebay is too high. [​IMG]
    I guess I can wait.. but when will they be widely available in stores? [​IMG]

    Nintendo's shipping out around 200k Wiis a week. You'll get them eventually. Just keep bugging stores like Best Buy, EBGames, Walmart and Toys R Us.

    Good Luck!

    Can't you ask them to ring you when they are in stock and hold one for you?

    Both the Circuit City and Target Sunday circulars are advertising them this week so I would guess that they expect to be getting some in stock.

    North America is suppose to be getting over 200,000 every week i believe, my local game stores are getting like 13 or 14 Wii's twice a week, so i would just check you local stores. i have been shocked at places i have seen stuff, for instance my local fred meyers had 3 or 4 PS3's a couple of days ago.

    ??? Use your assets. I'm pretty sure by your pics that all you would have to do is flash a smile at the majority of gameshop workers and they would gladly hold one for you!

    i just got one today as well. i heard rumors about it online that there would be a new shipment on the 3rd. i didn't check any ads and went to target and toysrus an hour before they opened. there was a bunch of ppl in line, about 40~50 and i managed to be number 43 out of 45.

    heres the source i used.
