    Yep.. I wen to the store today for like 7 hours.. (Note to Self: Never do that again) Anyways i went to each indavidual employee and asked them When there getting more Wii's in.. BB employee #1 Said "Oh i dont know we had a suprise PS3 come in today, I mean yah never know.." Ok no luck here.. BB employee #2 Said "Well it Depends on the UPS truck to get here.." Tyah right.. BB employee #3 Said "Ill go check.." (im waiting..) He comes back and continues.. (I saw him in the back room checking and another one of the employee's was talking to him.. hmm..) He comes back and says "Well we dont know just come back and check every once and a while.." (caugh) ahhu yeah right.. BB employee #4 Said "Well i would tell you if we have them or when they are comeing.." (BB employee #4 is more quiet and whispers) "But i could get fired.." (He grouned then looked away..) So iv been walking around Best buy for about 3 hours with nothing.. Untill i saw another guy on this other guys shift.. (I thought HAHA Iv got this one..) So i walked up to him and said.. "So when are you guys getting more Wii's in?" The BB employee paused then said "Oh about 2 weeks.." I said (YESS!!! in my head) Then i said "Thank you alot"..

    But its not over.. Oh no its not.. About 2 hours later in Best Buy i was walking around the CD's trying not to look suspicios.. I look to my left and i see some Wii's in the back room.. "Haha.." i said "Ill be back"..

    Well thats it boys.. If you live in Kallispell MT then go to Best Buy and get your Wii in a few days.. Or weeks..

    :lol: That is definitely interesting. Especially the one kid who looked down and said he could get fired. Sounds like something Butters would do in South Park.

    He said jk so he obviously isn't serious. I would just go friday morning. Though it depends on where you live and how many people there want a Wii.

    Ya idk. I live in a pretty small town and don't know anyone that wants a Wii but I still had to go 29 hours before the release to get one so its kinda hard to tell.

    Alright, well, I work at a Best Buy store selling computers, and have a couple things to say:

    (1) Why would an employee, or even the company deny you a Wii just "because" there truly is a shortage? They are in the business to make money, and they WANT you to buy the product.

    (2) They truly don't know when they are getting any systems in, and that is Nintendo's fault. There are a certain amount of consoles that are allocated to each district, and it is divided up per store. It is a random thing, just like the PS3 shipment you were mentioning. If they are on the truck, they will put it out and sell it.

    (3) I don't know how you could see them in the back room, because they are in boxes "around the corner" out of site, if they are even there. They make sure they are not visible on purpose, so people won't go nuts.

    Just remember that they aren't bad guys denying you a Wii just "because." Nintendo creates the product, ships it, and tells everyone to put them on the shelves, so in return, Nintendo, and Best Buy, (or any other retailer) can make money.

    Yes, I have a Wii, and I love it, no fanboyism here. My point is basically that if a store has a Wii shipment, and you are there, you will get one. No one is going to lie to you. (Even if it is Circuit City) :p

    Zea

    Best Buy told me today as well - Friday, BE THERE!

    I am just debating what time I should get there. Do yall think this will required a camp out? Best Buy is a good 45 minute drive from me so I would have to drive down there too early.

    I preordered a Wii for the second shipment of Wii's at gamecrazy, in Washington State, said they will have some on Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving) so i would suggest to call your gamecrazy and ask them about a preorder list and if they say they dont have one ask for a waiting list....i called and my gamecrazy store was VERYhelpful, but u will have to go to the gamecrazy to sign your name on the list..CAN't WAIT TILL FRIDAY!!

    Is this for Best Buy????? Cuz if it is, i'll just camp out there since if they are going to have a minimum of 20, and gamestop here will only have 6 i have a much better chance of getting them at Best Buy. But then I will have to be in line at Best Buy @ 2am because of all the other crazy people there for the other Black Friday deals.
