    Re: In search of a Wii....

    What I heard is that if Best Buy or Toys R Us have them in the weekend ads they will have them Sunday mornings. You just have to be very early.

    Last Sunday when I went to our Toys R Us I was almost two hours early. I would say the people that got there more than and hour 20 minutes early were past the cut off and did not get vouchers when they were handed out 30 minutes before opening.

        Game Stop is a good place to get them from what ive heard.
        you should check with your local shops to see what time they get in their shipments..
        sometimes they get them early, or around midnight.. so it all depends.
        id reccommend asking around, and then trying to get there when the shipment comes in.
        good luck!

          So I have joined the wii search a bit late but I am still positive about it. I will go up and down everywhere I could think of I have to.

          Now, I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic!

            My manager is in search of a wii for her daughter... I'm selling her mine. I'm charging the normal price. She can have her's on Christmas day and I can wait for my raincheck from GameStop for another one.

            I'm going to go buy Nights tomorrow too >.< only to give up my Wii for a month in a few days.

            Spirit of giving! ^.^

              From what I've read online, the big shipment that the biggies put out this last weekend was the last before Christmas.

              If nothing else, you can got to Gamestop on Friday and get in on the pre-order program...

              The Wii Certificate program will run just one day, Friday, December 21. Customers will be able to go in and hand out the full $250 to reserve a Wii console for pick-up on January 25. Reservations must be made in-person at any GameStop or EB Games location in the U.S., including those in Puerto Rico and Hawaii. The number of reservations available at each store is limited and only one Wii can be reserved per a household.
              The certificate itself will be in a custom-designed DVD case featuring a picture of the Wii and Mario. Once the reserved Will arrives customers will receive a telephone call saying it's available for pick-up.
              Be controversial

              Be outspoken

              Be outrageous

              Just don't be boring

                If I was a kid I'd hate getting a certificate for the Wii than not getting one at all.

                Here kid is this thing we got you ... but you can't play it for a month.

                Honestly, Game Stop has been pissing me off lately ... but for other reasons than just that.

                  Kid 1:What'd you get for Christmas?
                  Kid 2:NINTENDO WII!!! How about you?
                  Kid 1:Rain check! Woo-hoo!!

                  At least they give it to you in a DVD case that says "Your Wii is on the way!!" :botox:

                      I visited no less than 21 different stores about 65 times before I gave up(I kept missing the shipments by mere minutes sometimes).

                      Then...

                      I was at Walmart(a store I normally try to stay clear of) of all places for a sale on mixed nuts when I noticed a woman with a wii in her cart.....I hightailed it over to electronics only to find that the wii display area was empty--a sight I was very used to seeing--. I asked a salesgirl if there were any left expecting to hear the normal "no, we just sold the last one" but instead she said "let me check in the back"...


                      15 minutes later she comes back with her hands empty....."sorry, I thought we had one last box but I guess we must of sold them". Just then another clerk comes out of the back with a box and says "here's the last 3 wii's" . His customer was overjoyed because this was "the third store" he visited By this time another person had arrived who wanted a wii too...luckily there were 3 and we all got one

                        I can count the times I've seen them on shelves at retail on one hand. I saw some at a Target one Sunday morning, I saw some at a Wal-Mart one evening, I saw some at a Costco in Santa Cruz, and at a Costco here in San Diego. That's it.

                        I was 13th out of 20ish in line when I got ours a few months ago.

                        And I got one as a gift for my SIL's college graduation by accident. I was in Gamestop trying to pre-order a game for my wife and the shipment had just come in. I was in line, when I got to the counter I got one them. Wasn't even planning on it. And they didn't have the game I wanted to pre-order.

                          Some have just been shipped in to a store here in Garden Grove.....Game Geeks at Brookhurst & Chapman. Just was told a few minutes ago.
                          Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
                          it's what they are like in their HEART!
