    Lol, poor guy. I was in school when my Mom, just for the heck of it, stopped in a Game Stop she was passing by. She said it like she had said it a million times (which she had), "Do you have a Wii? Any games? For God's sake man, controllers?!?!" (so I exaggerated a bit :p) They had one left...

    ...so the moral to this story is...I got a Wii :) Or "never give up", that one always works too. :)

    Thats the price you pay for not pre-ordering.

    I really should have pre-ordered a PS3. . .I would have been 2nd in line too at ebgames and been about $1500 richer right now (enough to afford a Wii and 360), but can't change the past.

    Ya, it's just a hell of alot more expensive. >.>

    The chances of finding one are getting greater and greater (depending on where you live), I live around a bunch of brand-name stores (Target, Wal-mart, Gamestop, etc.) and so I had a higher percentage of getting one.

    Gamestop or Best Buy are your 2 best chances of finding one.

    Gamestop because even though they get little shipments in, they get them in all day, so you never know when you might just pop in and get one (which is what happened in my case).

    Best Buy because they get huge shipments in at 1 time, it's going to be the more popular area, but if you get there early you never know what might happen. :)

    Good luck on your quest. :thumbsup:

    witch...lol, it's which. (and don't say you were using short-hand, they're the same amount of letters >.>)

    Listen, don't worry. You'll get a Wii before Christmas, don't worry about it. ;)

    Thats the price you pay for not pre-ordering.

    I showed up at Best Buy a week after launch at 8:00 am (2 hours before open) and was number 22 in line - they had 27. I can't believe it's been that hard for some to score one when I only had to wait 2 hours a week after launch (which was on a weekend when kids and most parents could come out).

    Seriously...if you put out the effort it's not that hard (depending on where you live).

    The local wal mart i camped at had 29 Wiis in stock but only 20 copies of Twilight Princess. So me and my 2 other buddies went there 25 hours in advance and snagged the 3rd, 4th and 5th position in line. Good luck finding one.

    I'm going to be at my local walmart around opening time (7am) and I'm hoping there won't be a line or much of a line anyway due to it being in a small city and it being a school day. Hope I'm not wrong.

    Good luck with that.

    My BlockBuster was supposed to get them in today, but of course, they didn't.
