    While at my local GAME today, my mum asked them about controllers, their availability, and WiiPlay, and their response was that they would have NO spare controllers until the 15th as somehow Nintendo had f**ked up the shipments.

    Anyone know about this?

    Yes controllers are Scarce EVERYWHERE and its not due to shipments its due to manufacturing limitations.... however check some online shops you might be able to find some there i know there are some on eBay but they may be pricey just gotta get lucky!

    I'm kicking myself for not getting a nunchuck when I bought my second wiimote. For some reason I didn't think i'd need it... must have been the $300 sticker shock and not wanting to add more.

    I have the same thing with Wii Play - Virgin just confirmed my pre order, but told me they won't have Wii Play until Saturday and no component cables - this must be a national issue and not per store/chain....
