    Damn. A single Wii Console for 2,250 dollars. I saw some Wii Bundles with a Wii, 10 games, and 2 Wii Remotes and Nunchucks for like 1000 dollars.

    Keep in mind that's British pounds, not dollars. That price converts to over $4,626! Maybe PAL Wiis are rarer...

    Actually, I think it's for 10 consoles, up at the top it says 10x Wii...

    nice linux you have there FRuMMaGe...is that the newest release, I haven't seen it yet? Or just a special skin?

    Nope, I'm on the old Ubuntu 6.06. I think 7.10 is just out, but I'm happy with my current setup. And yeah, it's a custom theme.

    Also, just to stop people from being misleaded, this is actually for 10 Wii's. I didn't realise that until I posted it, but £250 ($500) is still a massive amount above the RRP (£179).

    Also, why would they buy 10 without some desire to sell them.

    No, That is for ten.
    Still silly money as they are available and cost £179-95.
    All I can say is panic buying.
    Have thought of buying a couple and sticking them on E-Bay. Selling for over £200-00. on there.

    Actually, in most of the UK they are completely sold out.

    People are rushing to get them for Christmas presents for their kids

    Well, it IS almost Christmas. :)
    ..and making you say about the whole "photoshop" thing, made me actually
    look for it.. and I'm not so sure. I found the same exact thing. The item
    number is different, but it's from the same person. Oh well!
    Maybe he bid it again.. o_O. I don't even buy things from ebay, so I don't
    know! xD
