Good luck in your Wii hunt. Best advice to give your parents is to call the stores that carry Wii's and call them often. I had a list of like 8 stores in my area that sold Wii's. Every day, a few times a day I would call them and ask if they got any Wii's in, I did the same for wiimotes, nunchucks etc. Since most stores won't put you on a waiting list, the next best thing is call and call often. I got my Wii on the 28th of Nov, I called one of the Target stores in my area, when the girl told me they had some I didn't believe her, I asked again, "are you serious?" lol, yeah she was, she told me they had a few left hurry on down cause they are going fast. Persistance pays off, I currently have the Wii, 4 wiimotes, 4 colored gloves and 2 nunchuks. (not sure if I need more nunchuks I don't have a game that requires more then nunchuks for 2 players yet.
