    Bestbuy sold out of Wiis... PS3s are sitting on the shelf!

    So I saw a news story on Global news (BC News up here in Canada). They were interviewing a guy live who was sitting in line since 3pm yesterday for his Wii. It was the last shipment Bestbuy was getting before christmas (54 units total). Apparently they had handed out tickets and turned away hundreds of people... The funny thing is they literally have PS3s sitting inside STILL unclaimed! I know I saw a 20GB at Zellers, and passed on it... My brother tells me people have been returning them cause they cant get rid of them fast enough, and people who bought them can't actually afford to keep them. Wiis on the other hand are this years "hottest item" according to the News.

    Long live Nintendo!!!!

    Yeah - Best Buy in Cary, NC had two 60GB PS3's sitting there - they announced it to the whole store and no one went running.

    Sony could be in some trouble I think.

    They've priced themselves outta the market. People can find $300 for a nintendo and game, but not $900 for a ps3 and game... Its a shame cause ps3 is awesome, my brother has one.

    I walked into Costco last night, greeted by an entire pallete stacked with $700+ PS3 special bundles. The electronics guy was standing behind it with a smug look on his face, like he was so bad ass because he had PS3's. But it didn't look like a single unit had been sold. Tool. I had to laugh.

    THink about this. When all the colors come out for the Wii, it is going to drop to $200 dollars (hopefully!). Think abou the amout of people buying then. If people are just buying the Wii because of the price, this will be a huge insentive

    I have a 360 and just got the Wii - I got both for the price of the premium PS3.

    Why anyone would not see that as a better deal is beyond me.

    Well, if you're in it for just the gameplay you're right... The problem with 360 is it can do everything a PS3 can, but u have to buy HD drives and such which ends up making it more expensive. If you want a tv based computer, ps3 is the way to go. If you want innovative gameplay, it's Wii. If you want Halo 3, it's xbox360... Its just that simple!

    Same here....my local WalMart have 3 PS3 60GB for 3 days now. And people are still calling every 15 minutes for Wii's shipment info. I'm glad I just found mine yesterday at a Music World.
