    When do you think they will be back and stock and not hard to find? Is there any in stock where you live. I talking about in actually retail stores not websites or auctions.

    It isn't too hard to find one here in the bay area (Northern California). My fiance just got me one in February for my birthday. She just walked into a target store in the morning and they had just restocked about 50 of them. They are still sold out, but you just have to go at the right time. Just know that random Fedex Target shipments, at least here, come in sporatically every morning at around 10-11. I wouldn't recommend asking the actual store workers, they never know. I know this because one of my friends is an assistant manager at a store and he says he has an idea, but its never a sure thing unless Target is planning to actually have them in.

    I was at a K-Mart in Medina, Ohio today and they had Wii's in stock. Looked like they had 4 of them. Strangely though, I saw ZERO accessories. But then again, I wasn't really searching for them.

    They had a whole 4-sided gondola of PSP crap though. [​IMG]

    Well i have news that will ease everyone's pains, and that the wii stock might be coming sooner than later. Im not positive about it at the moment, but a few people who i know work at retail informs me that not all the wii's out there were actually sold out. In 3 o 4 days we will know this for sure, and be able to tell exactly what store will have them.....of course i'll be there on that day [​IMG]

    Wow I think she just got lucky. I have been casually looking for a while now and I have never seen a Wii on the shelf at any store. This week I lined up 2 hours early at Circuit City and didn't get one...the last guy to get one had gotten there an hour earlier than me.

    In April there will be more than enough wii's for everyone, april 1st is the start of the new fiscal year and thats what nintendo is waitng for. I think paper mario allready went gold a couple of months ago becouse it was ready for NGC and they just tuned it up for the Wii.

    Nintendo has sold enough this fiscal year so they keep their products in the house. As of april the 1st its gonna booom!

    Really doubt it. Right now we are at a point where casual consumers who are the Wii's biggest targets are becoming frustrated because they simply cannot find them. I think Nintendo has acknowledged this in an article somewhere. Some people may just give up and develop some animosity towards Nintendo for putting out a product that they cannot produce fast enough. Me personally, I think Nintendo has done a good job given this unexpected demand. They have stayed pretty on track with their projections.

    On April 1, no major retail outlets have the Wii in their Sunday ad. For 4/8, I predict that one will have them advertised (Target is due). I don't think that the Wii will be easy to find until maybe mid May. It actually feels like it is harder to find now than it was in February (but not before Christmas).
