    I thought North America was getting 200,000 a week?

    Every store I call say they have no idea, in a month, or after the holidays.

    Also, I am really pissed of with ToysR Us and Best Buy. Toys r Us left me on the line listening to their stupid music for 10 minutes. Literally. And when I called Best Buy, the lady hung up on me when I asked to transfer me to the video games department..

    ahhh, the wonderful world of customer service :D

    By the way, i'm assuming the whole of N.America are getting 200,000 Wii's a week, not each store.

    Yeah 200,000 per store per week is a hell of a lot of wiis- especially seen as there are only supposed to be about 4,000,000 in the whole world by the end of the year lol. I wish there were that many...

    I went to Toys R Us in Times Square Monday morning 11:30 Am after the launch. I walked right in and bought one. So I would try Toys R Us in the morning.

    200,000? I don't wanna be mean but you've got to be a ****ing idiot. There'd be more than enough for every single person in the world in just one week. That's 1 million a week in just five stores. Some cities have five stores of their own. That's over 10,000,000 wii's each year per store. Ten Million. Good God man. Good God.

    All of you who wasn't smart enough to realize what I really meant are just stupid. I have people in this thread calling me a "****ing idiot?" Are you kidding me? Are you too dumb to put 2 and 2 together and see what I really meant.

    For those of you that ^^ includes, this is what I really meant..

    I thought "N.A. was getting 200,000 a week"

    My local Best Buy said in the Sunday, November 26 ad that they have 12 per store today (minimum). Anyone know how many Best Buy stores there are in the U.S. Gamestop and ToysRUs should have the largest allocation. When are there going be legitimate sales, instead of these puny Black Friday allocations?
    If Nintendo wants the allocations to last another month, they are being miserly about it. Online buyers are being ignored. If the industry analyst was correct about the 150,000 to 200,000 per week, there should be enough to satisfy demand. If the stores employees can't buy one, are the stores holding back stock? CyberMonday should have the online sites like Amazon loaded with Wii's. That has not been the case so far.

    As to the rip-0ff resell artists, I suggest you perform a rectal exam with your console. Walmart had one I could have bought. There were four good games, and four games for children. No one bought it for a long time.
    No gamer wants children's animation, and parents don't want small children
    playing violent games. Only the warped minds at Walmart would do this.
    Amazon andToysRus have bundles that make sense for different groups of gamers. I'm holding onto my money until somebody sells me something I actually want.

    Bought one today - went to one BB - they only had the 12 reported in the flyer. Went to another about 12 miles closer to the "city" - they had 42.

    All of which promptly sold out in 10 minutes... :D

    I got there about 8:15am - was around number 20 in line. But they didn't tell us how many they had until about 15 minutes prior to opening.

    Now - gotta find another wii remote.. which is evidently harder to find...

    I'm calm, man. And everyone makes typos. So everytime someone mispels a word or messes something up we can started calling them a ****ing idiot and write a whole paragraph to bash him? Just let it..

    And I didn't know you could change it. It's fixed for you and your friend.
