    Just out of curiosity, what's it like trying to buy a wii these days? I've had mine for... WHOA! 364 days... just noticed that :lol:
    anyways, i was wondering if theyre still selling out as soon as they restock in stores. I remember what it was like trying to find one and Ive gotten hints on the forum that they're still hard to find.

    I got mine right after Christmas this year...I checked in Target once a day starting the 26th...got one on the 28 so I definitely can't complain! It was dumb luck though...I haven't seen another once since then.

    Still gotta have inside info, be willing to wait in line early on a Sunday, or simply be at the right place at the right time ;)

    Demand is still high and supply hasn't quite evened out.
    Still hard for some to get a Wii, supply should be good by April.

    yeah its still pretty hard to get one these days, kinda makes you feel special that you have one doesnt it? one thing that bothers me is all the bundles that we see now. not to mention the fact that wal-mart got backordered by nintendo this week.

    WOW. I thought the supply/demand would have evened out by now. It's been like 14 months since it released... @thas, yeah I do feel special now.

    The demand will rise even higher in January-February as a result of some key games we expect (Smash Bros, No More Heroes, Dragonball,MOHHA Heroes 2,Guitar Hero,Zack & Wiki) and it will be rising with every new important addition(Mario Kart - WiiWare etc.)

    Is the wii bigger in US than EU?

    I live in Helsinki Finland. I have noticed plenty of Wii's at the big department store "Stockmann". I would estimate 30 at any given time... Whenever I shop there, they have the same pile... Right next to the equivalent pile of PS3's.

    I had to wait in line for 2.5 hours yesterday morning in the freezing cold outside of a circuit city in order to get mine.. I got #14 out of 16, and my girlfriend got #15. They opened at 10 and if you got there after 8 you were out of luck.

    They seem to be mainly out of stock in Japan and North America...

    Europe isn't as bad based on reports, but they also arnt into gaming half as much as the other 2 regions. And the price is higher for them compared to others.

    I live in Holland and there hasnt been to many shortages of Wii's here. Granted it took many months before Demand was met but there are plenty of Wii's around everywhere here.
