    You'll get one for a fairly decent price on eBay if you're sensible.

    Otherwise, pre order.

    First Post! :)

    Try www.shopto.net if you live in the UK, free next day delivery :). If you live in america you seem pretty stuffed.

    Even though you may have joined yesterday everyone here is treated equally.. new comer or not..

    Also if you joined you should have read over the forum rules and or tutorials this site has to offer.. Not trying to be mean. Just suggesting how you could avoid situations like this..

    As for finding a Wii I would try ebay or just try phoning around to various stores and seeing if they have them in.

    Well for the forum rules go here

    For tutorials I can't help you because I don't know where they are myself lol.

    But if you'r on the search for a Wii, you could just call stores in the morning when they first open. Try Ebay if all else fails. thats just what I would do though...

    gamestop or gamecrazy or your local game store

    I happen to know for a fact because my friend is a gamestop manager, that they receive a shipment of Wii's once a week.
    So if you have a good relationship with your game store guy's just ask them to hold one for you, and see what they say.

    I heard you! I can't believe that more than 6 months after Christmas, people still get inline early in Sunday morning to get Wii. I got up early around 7:00 in the morning (Sunday) 3 times and there was already a line! Isn't that nuts?!! :incazzato: Another way to get it besides eBay is Craigslist, that's how I got my Wii. Other than that, it's just pure luck. I got my first Wii back in Dec when I walked in Walmart and saw the clerk pulling a cartridge with Wii's to put on the shelf, so I immediately grabbed one right away, but I sold that one to my cousin's coworker for $20 profit because he needs so bad for his son's Christmas present. Usually Walmart restock Wii on Monday morning and Target either Wed or Thursday morning. Good luck!

    Since I already got my own Wii, I'll share this info:

    According to most retailers in my area (Walmart, Kmart, Gamestop/EB, Sears, Toys R Us,Target, Best Buy, etc.) Wiis come in UPS trucks, not store trucks. These trucks usually come around 11 am to 1pm on weekdays only (my area). I'd call the stores to ask roughly what time they usually get the trucks with Wiis, and around what days.

    You should call every day at around the time mentioned by the store. Within a week (at most) you should find a Wii, if you're persistent enough.

    Otherwise, look them up in the store ads. In my area, when they put the Wii in the ad for Best Buy, the last one was bought an hour later, so I'd say get there at opening and you'll be fine.

    I'm guessing they won't be fully available in shelves until March 2008, after the holiday season, but it's possible to get the Wii now.


    Edit: Personally, I'd rather call stores than wait the shipping time for an online retailer, especially with all those bundles they try to sell and shipping costs.

    Oh and check the other threads, don't randomly post on every forum you find. Do some work, the Wii's not going to appear magically.

    whoever recommended itrackr.com , that site might've used to work, but it never updates anymore so it's useless.
