    Tip for Australian Wii owners

    I've been driving all around Adelaide today looking for Wii component cables. One of the stores I went into was JB Hi Fi, who I noticed are selling Wii games for $80! that is a whole $20 less than EB, Target, K Mart etc. Don't know how they are doing it to be honest.

    Anyway, thought I should tell people about it

    I love JB, I got Red Steel, COD3 and Rayman all for $80 each, plus a classic controller for $25. They've got all sorts of accessories as well, but no consoles! Not that that bothers me, I've already got one.

    Thats all well and good, but I need a console!
    Do they sell them at all? or are they just run out?

    neither did I. I just spent $100 on Red Steel at K Mart! >

    @Toddy
    Yeah they do (that's where I got mine). I don't actually trust JB when it comes to orderign things though. I have asked them to order in a couple of things over the years and I never got a call. I only pre-ordered my wii through them because they were the first to take orders.



    I find JB's DVDs are a bit up and down. they're either really expensive or really cheap. Thankfully, in the case of the wii, they seem to be very cheap!

    Hmm, thats handy to know, I'll give em a call in the morning and if they have some in stock I'll go over there. If not, I won't worry about ordering one.

    yeah, I would reccommend ordering one from a larger store like Myer or Target. EB are pretty good too. In fact, any store that specialises in games should be good, but obvsiously the larger stores like Myer etc. are going to get first pick at the next shipment, so I think they would be the best choice.

    EB is the best store for pre-ordering new consoles... they have like lil parties on the release night and stuff. plus they specialise in games, and are the best gameshop in australia .

    the thing i dont like about eb games is they say they will price match anyone

    they sell their games for 100 bucks knowing full well that target not 200 metres away is selling the same game for 75 bucks

    if i go into eb games and tell them they will price match for me

    but why should i ?
    why not just save the walk back and give the buisness to the shop that is not ripping me off ?

    when i leave the shop they will still happily sell the same game to some unsuspecting sucker that walks in there for 100 bucks

    eb games = i dont like them
