    Waddi Waddi What?

    Well theres these things you can do to find out how many wii's and ps3's your local targets, wal-marts, and/or best buys are going to get. Most wii's are in the 30-60 range ,while ps3's are in the 15's(15 is anticipated..anticipated) the 30-60 wii's are pretty accurate. So yah there probably more focused on getting as many ps3's as possible. My best buy is sopposedly getting 96 wii's. But of course this could be a load of CRAP!:ciappa:

    you realise its the same story with every other big chain stores? and not to mention that walmart was infact a smal business, the only difference between them and the ones that got run down is that walmart knew what people wanted and what deals, so dont blame walmart, blame those who dont know how to succeed where almart doesnt... also, walmart provide a lot of job opprotunities in the us...

    you probly havnt even seen the south park episode about walmarts either, they make about the same point as i have before, if it wasnt a walmart that would succeed and it was probly some other store down the road, we'd be seeing that store chained across the world...

    According to a Wal-Mart sales paper that came out yesterday, they are having a midnight release (starting at 12:01 on Nov. 19th) for the Wii. According to the sales paper, it said they would have 20 available at each store. Hopefully, this is true, but I guess we'll see.

    I have a friend on the GeekSquad here. He says our Best Buy (a fairly small store) will be getting 24 on release day. I'm getting ready to call arround to other stores and find out where my best bet it.
