Thanks for the numbers darth, they helped. But I'm not planning on keeping the Wii now, I'm just probably going to sell it on Ebay cause I need cash right now. So the true question for me is even if I get one on the first day if I decide to camp out, would the Wii go for 2x the price. I know Xbox's went for $800-$1200 and that's a pretty good profit. Don't know how many they made though.
I remember when it was cube launch, couldn't get my hands on one for a month or two. But even if Wii's going to be 2x as much in stock at launch, I'm guessing the Wii is more in demand than the Cube. A lot of sites say that 2 or 3x more people want the Wii rather then the Xbox or PS3 and the fact that US is getting it first might make the price of the Wii go up significantly on ebay.
Gah I want to camp out for the assurance of a Wii but it would suck pretty bad if it went for $300 on ebay and people could just go to the local K-Mart on the 19th early in the morning. To camp out or not? Tough decision
