    Ok, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but is does anyone have a clue where I can get hold of a Wii in Melbourne?

    I have tried just about everywhere to no luck.

    :-(

    Thanks!

    Try all of the ToysRUs, JBHiFi, Myer and DickSmithElectronics.
    Gamers often forget about ToysRUs - I got Wii Play @ Northland a few weeks back and they had a few consoles left back then.
    I just happened to luck on mine mid Jan when at DSE Nunawading I just happened to ask if they had one out the back and they did.
    Myer have alot of buying power so check them too.

    I heard they were coming back in just before Australia Day.

    Targets usually are the last place to sell out, thats where I would be trying.

    If you hurry - Northland ToysRUs has 10+ and EB have a few. I was just there an hour ago.
    ToysRUs had quite a few remotes as well, but no classics or nunchuks.

    Big W and K-mart are usually stocked up a bit more than the game speciality stores (but no guarentees).

    Anyone heard when the next shipment of nunchuks are coming in? My friend has been after one since christmas and was told mid feb for the next batch of them.

    Yeah - don't bump the thread. ;-)

    Incidentally, I did finally get a Wii some months ago from Toys R Us - the deal with zelda + controllers + Wii play etc.

    I have never done the Melbourne Shuffle.
