    Hey guys, let me start by saying this is my first post of I hipe many on these forums. I'm not a noob to forums, I've used the PSU and Xbox forums but I was saddened when I saw nintendo no longer had its official forums, but I guess this is just as good.

    Okay, well anyway I REALLY want a Wii for Christmas. My mom siad she'll try her best to get me one but obviously the stores are sold out and she's not one to camp out. She's okay with me helpiing her get it but not actaully be at the purchase. She's given in to purchasing online but Craiglist is way to expensive and Ebay is getting Expensive. I also want GH3 for the Wii and that's obviously sold out.

    SO my question is, what's the best way? DO you know any good 3rd party websites in stock. My mom bought my DS from one of those whenit was released. I;m just looking for a reliable webstie where I'll get hat I'm looking for. Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance.:lol:

    Wait...that site says the Wii is HD ready...while that may 'technically' be true what with the extra cables you can get it most certainly is NOT High Definition in my book...

    The safest way is to get a Wii in stores, that way theres no tricks and bad deals etc.

    You may just have to wait it out, keep trying for them in stores.
    You may get lucky :thumbsup:

    Gamestops are heavenly. <3 I got mine around 1 o'clock one day, and my sister found one at like 12'ish for her boyfriend. You can get lucky so easily.

    I already mentioned to a mod about it, FLYNNN. He/She'll be gone soon.

    go to gamestop or eb games at your local mall everday when it opens at 10. They won't say what day your shipment is in but if you have nothing better to do in your winter break then go for it. I did this and it was a success on the second day. woot woot. Usually, look for a game that is being pre-ordered and it comes out that day, they should have wii shipments coming in also.

    I live . . . . in your soul . . . thats deep
    well an incredibly obvious answer is Gamestop.com, Walmart.com, Target.com and those big gaming corporations
    Just look hard and you will find it.

    Do you know anybody that works at a Best Buy or retail store like that? If not its all about calling around and getting lucky, I know when I worked at Best Buy I found out when we were getting them a few days before they were to get in, but my store would hold them until Sunday and we'd sell them after a line formed outside. Good luck finding one, I really don't have any tips/tricks to finding one, but look in stores that don't get as much traffic, I remember Toys R Us had them and people had no idea, around when they came out.

    THanks dude. My friend over right now asked his brother over Xbox Live and told me they had Wii's this morning and no one knew. I found out at 9:30 pm and they had them all day. I'm mad about it but my friend said that his borther will watch them for me.

    We got ours through Wii Alerts (wiialerts.com). We signed up for the dealie that sends a text to your cell phone when someone has them in stock and sure enough, one morning my girlfriend wakes me up and says she has the alert. We went to the site which turns into a single link basically when someone has them to make it easier to get to the store that has them, and got one off Amazon.com.

    Was really easy.

    Also, try checking out stores in small towns near where you live. I live in a medium-sized metropolitan city and there isn't a single Wii to be found in ANY store. However, if I drive 45 minutes away to a small town (say, only large enough for one high school), I could walk into Target, Wal-Mart, etc. and just pick one off the shelf.

    Try calling around to the retail shops in the smaller towns within a reasonable driving distance from you.
