    Depends on how availability looks. Lots of people are predicting supply will fall short, but there's a lot of other evidence to contradict that claim. So, right now, there's no way to definitively answer your question.

    I'd shoot for the week before Christmas, though, were I put in such a situation.

    Thanks.

    Anyone know how many shipments there will be before Christmas? I heard 2 maybe 3, but I don't know how reliable that source is.

    I've heard 2. But, that's just what I've heard.

    Why would you betray the Wii and make it feel said? ;_;

    A girlfriend. Sad =[, but true. I guess I'll have to wait until the 2nd shipment or maybe until after Christmas =[[.

    I'd list it a couple weeks before Xmas, make sure the auction ended in time to get it to the person before Christmas. If I had the money to pick up a console and sell it for the holidays though it would be a PS3. People are paying crazy amounts of money for them.

    I know, but just a few reasons..

    - It comes out on a school day
    - I would have to camp out from after school Thursday to even have a SHOT at getting one without a pre-order.
    - and lastly and most importantly, I already pre-ordered the Wii.

    before christmas i think would be best just because it would be something alot of people would want. so it would sell better and faster.

    if you are going to sell it like that (which i totaly dont agree with) at least sell it to someone on this fourm for not to much of a mark up.

    I've heard that Nintendo have announced that they have more than enough to go around..every pre-order will be honoured at every store and everyone will get one....

    Look guys - I may try to pick up an extra one - I don't think it will be too hard in my area. If I do, is anyone interested? I'd rather sell it for a modest profit and one of you guys be able to get it than deal with folks I don't know on E-Bay. PM me and we can negotiate the details. I'll be able to ship on the 20th.

    Yeah, thats why some places are cancelling preorders they've sold to people and why Nintendo spokespeople have been quoted as saying if you did not preorder it's going to be tough to get a console at launch.

    Demand is much higher than supply right now man, if you want a Wii on launch you'd better get there early and expect to wait in long lines then if your lucky...maybe you'll get one.
