    Best Buy
    Target
    Circuit City
    Kmart
    Walmart
    Gamestop
    EB Games
    Sears (Usually not, but it's where I got mine on launch day)
    Circuit City
    Maybe Comp USA if they're still around (I know they were closin' a bunch of stores down, don't know if they're gone for sure though)

    That's at least in America. I don't know about anywhere else in the world if you live out of the states. It'd be best just to call the store and see if they'll tell you if they have any. Try Best Buy though, I know most of mine around here have them in stock.

    Dude, there have been reports that the night shift replace the good wiis with shitty wiis. I dont know but I still wouldn't take the risk at target. Walmart FTW!

    You can get a wii at most electronic stores( when their in stock)
    I personally perfer Bestbuy but lately circuit city has had the most in stock so circuit city would be your best bet:smilewinkgrin:

    Online

    You could try amazon.com, or ebay, or another shopping site. The only downside is that they're WAY more expensive online!

    BTW, if you go to a store and you don't see any Wiis in the display case it's a good idea to still ask. They may have some in the back they haven't put into the case yet.

    1. Ebay. You are gaurenteed to get one because there's no searching around for it. Sure you have to pay a lil bit more but it'd be worth it.

    2. Zackh321 is right, you should always ask. These employees hardly know what their doing anymore and are lazy. You'll ask, "Are there any Wii's in back?" (s)he'll say 90% of the time, "Nah were all out"

    got mine at gamestop. Trick is, when you ask for a wii, companies like bestbuy or gamestop tell you that they don't know when their shipments will be. I CALL IT BS. I figured out that in my area, that gamestop re-stocks their shelves every wenesday. I go to the mall alot with my g/f. I do about 10,000 steps that you need everyday. anyways, I went there 30 min. after opening (10:30) and found out that they had wii's. 4 of them and I had the last 1. wtf, people are camping outside their stores for this. They too, had heard about the shipping dates.

    I got my Wii this weekend. I called Toysrus and they told me they had some they could sell on Sunday morning. I got to the store 15 minutes before openning and got one.

    Gamestop told me to call every weekday morning as they get deliveries every weekday. However, they weren't sure what days they would get Wiis so told me to try daily. I never had to since I got one at Toysrus.

    I got mine online from toy r us, one them damn bundle thingys. I'm too lazy and don't have the time to camp out somewhere :).

    Your best bet is to go to one of the chain stores (Best Buy, Toys R Us) 1+ hrs before opening on a Sunday. Preferably a location that's more rural/remote where there's fewer people that go to that store. Good luck!

    Yes, http://itrackr.com is definitely something one should do. I did use them, and they're better than just calling around blindly. But recently stores have been hoarding actual available stock for weekend sales etc. so I got a lot of false positives.

    I also signed up for email/cellphone alerts from http://wiialerts.com which covers lots of online stores. This was much less painful and very accurate. Couple of weeks back I picked up two(okay not for eBay, just myself and someone else). Today I got alerts for circuitcity.com and amazon. I'd have jumped on both if i didn't already have them. I just picked up 2 from amazon coz it was free shipping and no tax. just too good a deal to pass up. I made 2 more friends happy, they better be thankful!!
