Forums - Sales Discussion - No Wiis in retail stores until February????

If I were you if your dying for a Wii just wait outside early in the morning to get one. Lucky for me at the time near launch. I just walked in Best Buy at around 2:30pm and asked for a Wii and the dude just handed it to me. I have owned Wii Sports and Wii Play, but I recently purchased Super Mario Galaxy. Wii is an amazing console, glad to be an owner 8)

I predicted the Wii supply would be strangled in NA in Jan a month ago... and people thought I was crazy...

There are no DS's where i'm from in the UK, and i want one :(

Just to add to the pain :D

...still tons of Wiis here in Basel, Switzerland.  They even have a bundle now:  Wii+Epson DMP1 projector/DVD

If you are near London, buy one of those magically cheap an Easyjet tickets, fly here, buy a wii, fly back (..wonder about the connector, though). 

 



You've called 42 stores, 3 times a day, since Monday?!?!?!? You need to get out more, dude... :P

If you read my post it says no DS's, nothing about the Wii... lol



I won a gaming console of my choice from work (see past post) and I have chosen to purchase a Wii... It's been two weeks since Future Shop, Best Buy, or EB games received a Wii shipment, today the guy at EB mentioned that the DS is also missing.

I check everyday, twice a day at the Eaton Center (for those who know Toronto) and nothing from anyone..

The Wii has dissappeared from Canada

I work at target in australia and we just recieved a shipment of wiis on tuesday. Total of 27 consoles. They sold out in 1/2 an hour and we are now being told do not expect a shipment til febuary. ranzchic I think is right and nintendo needed to get consoles out to people before xmas and so sent them airfreight to make sure they got there.



I want wii fit and I want it now
