I Want A Wii my recommendation would be to simply give up on getting the wii. I know it may sound pretty harsh telling you this but even I can't get a wii becuase:
1) $250 is just too much for my parents when it only cost $15-$30 to make one wii.
2) its never available and my dad is not willing to give a night's sleep to stay up all night for a wii.
3) stores are abusing the demand by forcing the customers to buy it in bundles and not selling enough wii's that aren't in bundles.
4) it just wont be worth it if you dont have a wide variety of games you like.
I know you may think thats biased but trust me its not my friend its just how I feel about the situation. Im not buying the wii and my parents said there never, ever buying one so im not even sure if I will be able to get the next console that is if by the time im in college I dont lose the love for nintendo. Im trying to go 360 seeing as it is a better system with far more games and a better variety, with few but rare crappy games, excellent ghraphics, good gameplay, great online service even if I have to $50 a year which I feel is worth the money, and is just more available at a more steadier rate. so just give up on the wii and move on because by the time the demand goes down and maybe the third or forth year of the wii's cycle and its not worth to buy a console after half of its life cycle.
