Still No Nintendo Wii For Us

Sad WiiWe struck out once again when trying to get a Nintendo Wii. We heard Target was getting a shipment today, Sunday, so we got up at 5am and got to Target by 6. Already there were over 30 people in line and some had been there since midnight. At 7 they handed out tickets, however Target only got 15 Wiis in.

My quest to find one continues. I’m not going to support those that buy them just to sell them for profit on eBay. I’m going to continue to look at Target, Walmart, GameStop and everywhere in between. If it takes till mid January, so be it.

Interestingly enough, Target also got about 8 Playstation 3s and no one cared.

    Its February 15th and I still have no Wii! I waited outside stores two Saturday nights (the first weekend it came out and the second) and didn’t get a Wii. Meanwhile, my girlfriend’s family luckily had a friend at a store that randomly got a shipment for Christmas. Talk about bad luck. 3 months and then some – I never thought I’d still be looking!

    nintendo are doing a disservice to a great console by limiting availability. We can’t get sufficient quantities of wiis in the UK.Is this is a deliberate ploy by the manufacturer ? If so I can see no long term benefit for Nintendo in doing this.
    Aditionally, we are having to pay significantly above what Japan and the United States are paying.

    From what I hear John, Nintendo is putting out as many as they can. They are just that popular.
