    Yeah, I know I haven't been too active on gbatemp recently, all my crap was stolen (ds lite, r4, g6) and i bricked my wii dvd drive trying to solder in a wiikey with quicksolder method (i know, i'm retarded.).

    My question to all the tempers though, is where can I buy a wii (for less than 250 usd)? I know i can get them from toys 'r' us for retail, but even a slight discount would be nice. any ideas?

    They're in Target and Wal*Mart, and just about everywhere else where I live. Where are you located?

    Wii's aren't that hard to find anymore.

    You could go to your mall, Gamestop/Eb Games, WalMart, online and find one.

    Good Luck.

    How did you even do that?
    You can brick your Wii by soldering the wiikey onto the drive?
    I've always thought that's what you were supposed to do: Solder it onto the quicksolder patterns.
