    No ps3's in stock, but plenty of wiis

    Last time I posted my local walmart has 5 wiis in stock, everyone called me a liar. I guess i should have taken pictures of them . Unfortunately I had to go into walmart today (I hate walmart) for a couple of things and guess what I saw? 15 wiis sitting on the shelf. Nobody was even looking at them. You know what I didnt see? If you guessed a ps3 then your right. The lady said they have been there all weekend. She said they sold a few, but it wasnt as crazy as expected.





    If you need a wii go check your walmart. Ive found that if one store gets them in, then most of them will. It was the same thing with the ps3 as well. I bought three of them. One went to my g/f boss for his kids, and the other two will either go on ebay, co worker, or a friend. Im still surprised that they are selling for over $300 on ebay. I guess people are too lazy to check local stores. Maybe I have a magic walmart? Who knows.....

    are you that obsessed your taking pictures? big deal, my walmart is clean of wiis. maybe the demand is currently filled at your area. a picture or 2(could even be fake or empty boxes, not saying THOSE are for sure) of a store means nothing vs. all the reports/facts.

    btw , its ps3 section not Wii. :P

    Weird. No walmarts near me have them. I go to walmart often and always go back to the games section for kicks. No place around me has them, but they've all got ps3s. Maybe the demand for your area is indeed filled.

    WalMart had empty boxes behind glass even weeks before launch. A friend of mine works there... He says they do that to keep the display from looking fugly.

    Wal-Mart got a big shipment of Wiis in over the weekend. I also saw about 8 in my Wal-Mart on Saturday. When I went again on Sunday, they were gone.

    dont believe anything they tell you at wallmart, or any retail store. I used to work at target and i always made crap up like that. They probably just got them in that day

    WalMart had empty boxes behind glass even weeks before launch. A friend of mine works there... He says they do that to keep the display from looking fugly.
    I bought 3 of them. They are all real.

    There are exceptions to every rule. All I know is where I live, people are still standing in lines when establishments like Wal-mart, Best Buy, Target, Circuit city, and Sears open, to get their hands on a Wii. They get like 10-15 in and they only have like half of those available because of the inside men (employees) picking the stash before they open. Itís like nothing I have ever seen!
