    I got mine at ToysRus by calling one Friday morning to see when they might have them and was told a shipment just came in.

    If anyone is near New York City you can go to the Nintendo World store near Rockafeller Plaza, they ALWAYS have Wii's and they are $249.99.
    Nintendo Wii
    2 Wii remotes
    2 Nunchucks
    1 Classic controller

    1 Wii Zapper
    Wii Sports
    Wii Play

So I searched everywhere I could to find a place to buy it. I first searched Amazon, because they always have the cheapest prices, and - WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?! The VERY CHEAPEST price for a Nintendo Wii console is 380 bucks!! And that's for a USED ONE!!!!! So, I searched other places, but STILL no luck!!! I Froogle'd it, eBay'ed it, Buy.com'ed it, PriceGrabber.com'ed it, but nothing is cheaper. What's going on here?! Seems to me that Nintendo is just a bunch of big fat liars, because not only did the Wii exceed $250, it almost DOUBLED it. Usually for electronics, when time goes by, the price goes DOWN, not UP!!!! Is there something I'm missing here? Please help...
    A core Wii:

    Wii console
    Wii remote
    Wii Nunchuk
    Wii Sports

    should cost $249.99

    But many stores are offering the wii as bundles (to get more money) with extra controls and games for higher prices

    The basic principle of Economics, the law of supply and demand. When demand is more than supply, cost of goods goes up.
    I bought my Wii at wally mart. I happened to know the person who runs the electronics dept. and she set one aside for me when a shipment came in.
    I paid 249.95. No way was I going to pay the 380 that the hucksters on ebay want. If you want one, your gonna have to camp out and make alot of phone calls.

    Lucky...

    Like others have said, those prices that exceed $250 come with extras, being games, accessories etc. Most of which is not needed, as most of the games that are bundled with it are no good.

    Just keep trying to find the normal Wii's for $250, keep trying and it will come.

    You are complaining about $250?! I would LOVE to pay $250 - if you convert that to Australian it's only like $278! But I paid $388 at the time! Although I did get 5% of that, it's not that fantastic. Let me convert the $388 to American for you. It's $347. So really, don't complain about your prices.

    Yeah. I'm pretty sure the guy's/girl's got his/her reason in the 5+ posts telling him the reason by now.

    I'll save him/her from future humiliation :X
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.
