    I dont know about anywhere else, but it seems like none of the stores by me are getting anymore Wii's in i mean ive waited 2 months past christmas i easily should have expected the stores to be loaded with them by now...so my question is, is Nintendo like holding them for another huge wave of shipment? or are my stores just special?

    Well maybe you should've stayed overnight at the store on launch like the rest of us. And no one can answer those questions.

    Valid Point there but if we were all to wait at launch for one, a lot of ppl would of went home empty handed anyway. I 2 am without a Wii and Im hoping that there is a "huge wave" soon.

    This wont help you, but I went to my local Myer yesterday (in AUS) and they said they had 3 in stock, no line up to get one, just sitting there waiting to be bought. I hope the rush in the US calms down soon so everyone can experience Wii.

    I only had to wait 1 hour for my wii at nintendo world. If anybody lives in NY then your best bet is to go to nintendo world they get shipments every day.

    if you want colors so bad, just get a skin from decalgirl.com (hopefully not considered advertising) retro nes is looking good to me at the moment.

    still glad i stood in line that first night. i knew id have to stand in line sometime, so i figured id go when i knew the store would be getting 50+ at least.


    good luck to you though =/

    actually thewiirules123, i was at the nintendo store in new york yesterday just to hang out while my dad did some work in NY and out of curiousity i asked the cashier if they have been getting any wiis in. i already have one, and i asked because 2 weeks before i was there and they said that after the first month the wii was out they said that lately they havent really been getting them in everyday. although when they did they got a pretty good amount but after about an hour or two they were out.

    whoops didnt realize that you are also from new jersey. use wiiseeker.com in my area it seemed very accurate. i used it to try and get mine from a target but failed...only because of my spot in line.

    no i dont believe that nintendo is holding it back. see in your area i believe that there is just a high demand for wiis and it is hard to get

    the stores in my area would get random shipments of like 2 or 3 at a time, and you never knew when they were gonna come. it was basically luck that i got mine. i just stopped in the store for kicks and giggles and asked, and they had one. so keep trying dude, youll get one soon
