It is worth a shot, and this way you are only calling one store, once a day. It took me only five days and bingo, I got one, and this is in a small town of only 50K people.
    But that would actually take effort..

    Good for you.

    Can't you just ask them to reserve you a console or hell get one online for just a little more than it costs?

    Sorry, you're weak sauce.

    BTW I got mine on launch day, only waited for about an hour.

    The key is to keep calling places and when you do hear about them having them, go early in the morning. getting my Wii was purely luck, went to my local target first at like 5AM and their was a line out their already so then i went down the road to toy'r'us and some people were waiting but they weren't sure if any were their.

    in this situation had i left, i would of missed out on getting a Wii around 7 AM, so glad that i ended up waiting.

    Hhahah, I found out that there were some Wii's one Sunday and my bro was like you wanna buy some Wiis and I was like hell yes! According to what yahoo.com said about the Wiis and PS3s, March should be the last month of misery for the Wii and PS3 so you will be able to get one.

And you randomly created a profile to complain about it evn though you claim you "lost interest" in the Wii... ! And oh yeah how is the "hype over" if you still can't get one all these months later? Lets examine that statement really quick...

    Bottom line is that its a great system as evidenced by the millions who have already purchased one and I think if you manage to get one you'll enjoy it. But then again if you're lazy and want the "easy" way out then you can pick up a PS3...those are lying all over the place. I tripped over one at Walmart the other day...the Electronics guy asked me if I wanted to buy it with this hopeful/eager smile on his face and I was like, "Hell to that naw". Then he became depressed and put it back up on the other 10 or so PS3's in the area. Of course there were no Wii's available. Only that movie station they have setup it seems everywhere.

    Yeah man, thats true! Go buy it on ebay if you cant find one or wait outside like the rest of for hours for it!

    Ridiculous that in march I have to rush to a store and try to fight for the last one.. I am surely not going to stand outside in the cold for an hour before a store opens 4 months after a console has been released to get one. Just simply don't care anymore, the hype is over and still no stock. Oh well.

    If I see one at this point I'm not even bothering. Just lost interest in it all together. Probally for the best, don't need to waste more time than I already do

    I looked for about 2 weeks for a Wii. The first week was just sort of "check if they got them while I'm there". The 2nd week was a active "calling and asking if they recieved any yet".

    Went into K-mart and talked with a very friendly lady. Said they get 1-2 a week usually. She took my name & cell number down. Called me 2 days later when their next shipment came in. I was there 15 minutes later, purchasing my Wii ^-^;

    Be friendly with the sales staff. They can go an extra mile to help you if motivated by kindness.
