    I ordered from Nintendo directly and got everything I ordered in 2 days. Yep. Ordered them Sunday, got them today (Tuesday). I'm sure that living down the street helped (I'm in Seattle) but that's an incredible turn around to get the order even processed.

    It said that the remotes were backordered when I ordered mine, but that's apparently not so much true. Just another option.

    I despise backorder. I was ordering a xmas present they said 'send orders before 15th of Dec to recieve by xmas' so I did this. It was on backorder for a month. Apparently, they break for Xmas. It was so annoying. But! they of course demand the payment when they want it. I still haven't paid it... I probably should go and do that now.

    I know it SAYS backorder.. and maybe it really is.. but I've never heard of anyone having to wait (at least not lately) for the remotes/etc. But, it's true that it's probably a risk and they COULD be backordered if you click at the wrong time.

    They came without the fancy packaging though.. interesting. (and yes, legit fron Nintendo direct.

    I bought my first extra Wiimote when I bought the system. I bought three nunchucks at Gamestop. I bought two more Wiimotes at Toys R Us last week to complete my 4 sets of controllers and nunchucks. Keep calling vendors. I'd lean towards Toys R Us.

    Thanks for all the help so far, guys! Ya, I noticed the wii play bundle. I am considering that if I can't find a controller by the end of the month.

    i know it sounds funny, but have you looked in toysrus (instore, not online)?

    i kept hearing to check there, but it seemd like if all the other stores
    were OOS, then trus would be too.

    alas, i checked at trus this past weekend, and there were at least 15 - 20
    in stock, sitting on the shelf waiting on me.

    they say its because fewer people are shopping at trus anymore, there fore
    trus is being overlooked!

    its worth a shot.....
