    2 K-Marts
    3 Wal Marts
    2 Targets
    1 Best Buy
    2 Gamestops
    1 EB Games (Elitist dicks kept their phone off the hook all day)
    1 Circuit City
    1 Meijers.

    Granted, I only visited one place, but rather called the rest, all said they were out, all said they don't know when they're getting any in. All said that Nintendo doesnt tell them when their getting any. None have any waiting lists. I was told that the shortage is over. Whats going on?

    No, the shortage definitely isn't over. I have never actually seen a Wii aside from on launch when I got mine. Good luck trying to find one, maybe you could use some kind of tracking website?

    I'm going to stop by Wal Mart, Toys R Us, Best Buy, and Target on the way to work today, but I'm not expecting much.

    This past Sunday Best Buy Ad had Wii's they WILL NOT give you the correct info. over the phone. We called Sunday AM and said they had none. On a whim we drove over and asked. They took us to the customer counter, the guy pulled out a Wii and immediately placed it in a bag and walked us over to register. They said you come you ask, we might have. Hmmm? Then they added this gem. Watch yourself on the way out...:wtf:

    I live in Delphos, Ohio. There's a little store called "Alco" that always seems to have 2 or 3 locked up. I see you checked out Dayton, Ohio. If you come by this way sometime, you might want to check out Alco.

    dude i live in cincinnatti ohio and i've had the same problem, but i found one eventually...if you really want one, pick out about 5 diff stores around you and call them everyday to see when next shipment is coming in or if they have any in stock, but make sure you have a ride to get there if they say they do...

    *checks ssbb countdown thread* I didnt say that recently, thats for sure. I didnt get my wii until late february, so I couldve said that, but it would have been a long time ago.

    I love my wii :wink:

    Welp, I found it. Interesting story:

    Dropped my wife off at work, stopped by the Walmart in Vandalia. None in stock. I didnt ask. I just looked. big mistake.

    Went to work, decided to stop in at the meijers. None there.

    heading towards walmart, 15 mins til I have to be at work. I decide "Screw it. Im just gonna go to work."

    I clock in and Michelle tells me "You know the walmart in Xenia had 2 of them 2 days ago." So I call the walmart. They have 10 in stock and theyre not on the floor. Guy says he'll give one to me if I come down.

    I figure "You know...if the Xenia one has their shipment in, I wonder if the one across the street did too."

    Sure enough. new shipment today, lady had 10 left. Got mine, paper Mario, mario party 8. Not goin out tonight. Mario Partying.

    Good work, man, and Happy Wii-ing! I also suggest that you look into buying LoZ:TP and WiiPlay. Some future games that are coming out that are being highly anticipated are Resident Evil 4 (June 19?), Super Mario Strikers (July 30), Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (August?), Super Mario Galaxy (September?) and Super Smash Brothers: Brawl (October-December?)

    lol, sorry, I didnt feel like looking up the dates/speculations because Im on a really slow computer right now. Rep if info is helpful.

    ya and i heard form alot of sites that mario party 8 is not a great game, so maybe u could return it if you wanted and get Loz:Tp before its too late

    I am in Kentucky. I went across the river to indiana and the gamestop there had 4 when I called and 2 refurbed ones. They closed at 6 so I didn't have time to get over there when I got mine a week and a half ago. I walked into walmart and snatched the last one from the case. A couple was actually looking at it through the glass. I walked past, saw it in there and got a worker to get it for me.
