    I was wondering if the Wii was still in short demand. I was wondering around my local Walmart and decided to browse the wii cabinet for games and sure enough they had 4 Wii's and the rack was filled with wiimotes and nunchucks as well as clasic controllers. I picked myself up a wavebird wireles controller. one out of two they had. Has supply finally cought up to demand? I hope so I really felt bad for those who couldnt get there hands on one.

    it depends where you live. Small town america has them all the time. But a metropolitan area in europe might not. its a region thing


    i think that anyone who wants one and has searched hard enough should have one. no excuses, if you search well i enough then you will get one. i hate ppl that say "oh i look so hard and still cant get one. but its not my fault!"

    well, yes it is. ppl arent trying hard enough.

    Well, I live in a fairly small town, and we pretty much get no more wiis.

    Depends on where you live, yes.

    Its still a big thing in Australia for shops when they get Wiis in. They run 'We have Wii!' TV commercials and they have big signs out the front of their shops.

    They are still considered as an artifact around my area. :lol:
    I haven't seen any displayed in the local game shop but they may have some in the back that I don't know about.

    I went to Meijer the other day and they had 6 locked up. They had 2 uptown at Alco. I'm starting to see them more over here finally.

    I got mine about 2 months ago when they were really hard to get. I imagine they still are, I wouldn't be suprised if people would still have to line up to get one.

    Yes, Meijer received 2000 units chain-wide for this week. It should be all gone by the past Monday though.

    I saw 3 Wii's at Walmart last week, but they were gone the next day. The only other time I have seen a wii is when I bought mine the day after Thanksgiving.

    I bought mine and since then I have only seen one. It was in a walmart and within 15 minutes of me seeing it, by time I left, it was gone. It seems like I see a ps3 everywhere I go though. . .

    I never saw a Wii in a store although I check 2-3 stores every week. I ended up getting mine from Amazon a couple weeks ago. I still check the shelves for the console every time I was looking for games or accessories in the last 2 weeks. Still, I have not seen one Wii sitting on the shelf. PS3 is not hot at all. I saw the same 3 units sitting there for a whole week even when there was a 15% off ($510 out the door).

    man, I really take for granted that I got mine on launch. I feel bad for those still searching.



    But no, I never see any. I think one of the local Walmarts may have had one in stock. Other than that I never see them

    I got mine today. The Future shop by me gets their shipment on Fridays, and today they only got 10. I was there 30 mintues before opening, and by the time the store opened, there were 9 of us. Deffintaly hard to come by in my neck of the woods.
