I saw the availability there yesterday and was able to pick one up for $249.99, new direct from Amazon. I see the lowest price is now $355 new from a third party!!

I had been shopping on craigslist for a Wii for my 9 yr old daughter, when I went into a gamestop and they had 2 of them, while I was buying one someone else came in and got the other. They are still a hot console.

I'll be looking forward to christmas night to be playing and cking it out.

I got here Wii play that came with an extra Wii mote and I got her an extra nunchuck...anything else I need to get started?

If you plan on adding more than 2 players ever, another Wiimote/'Chuck would be decent (Wii will handle up to 4).

As to other accessories - well, the Wii is literally innundated with add ons - mostly 3rd party stuff & mostly useless!

Any "necessary" add-ons - like the Wii Wheel, Balance Board, Wii Speak mic - those come with Nintendo games.

All these other gamers make fun of the Wii and how "inferiror" it is to the other video game systems and a lot of people bash Sony tvs. Yet on that list of top products for 2008 the Wii is #2 and 2 of the others are sony HDTVs.

Meanwhile no xbox360, ps3, samsung tvs, etc... anywhere to be found.

Yeah, take that, everyone on the Internet who's ever disagreed with Basher about what electronics are superiror. This random list of hot holiday products he found that happens to feature a couple of items he likes proves that everybody who doesn't like those items is stupid and wrong.

How is that a "Wii first impression"?
post #308 of 323
Oh ok simply look at sales figures then rather than my "random list". The Wii has almost outsold sony and microsoft COMBINED.

It's common knowledge that the Wii is the sales leader of this generation by a huge margin. But sales are just sales--they prove something sold a lot, and nothing more. By your logic, you must have LOVED Beverly Hills Chihuahua, since it must have been one of the best movies ever as it was #1 at the box office for a while.

Hell, I'm on your side. I think the Wii's the best console this gen. Its games, price, and even philosophy appeal the most to me. Can't you just like the damn thing for your own reasons, instead of needing to somehow "prove" it's the best? Implying that the Wii is objectively superior due to its sales figures, presence on a "Hot Holiday Gifts '08!!!" list or ranking on a second-rate search engine is embarrassing and ridiculous.

But.....but...Mongo....Yahoo said it was "the hottest"!

If anyone is still looking for systems or know someone who is and you live in the Wilkes Barre, PA area, Walmart has about 20 in stock. I just left there and there display case was full.

Was in my local (central CA) Best Buy this wknd - saw several people walking out w/ new Wiis. Not sure how long they lasted, though.
post #315 of 323
I have seen several different stores, including one in a mall not last Saturday but the Saturday before, with Wiis in stock.

They're not "go to random store and pick one up" easy to find, but its nothing compared to last year or the year before.
post #316 of 323
Amazon still has them stock, i've just ordered one. This is my first new consule in years, i can't wait [img]http://imagesshack.info/************[/img]

Over the last couple of months, just about every retailer that I have visited that would have a Wii in stock has them. Costco sells the std Wii bundle (local one has a ton of them) for $244.99.

Wii Fit, OTOH, appears to still be hit or miss locally.
post #318 of 323
This post isn't worth making a thread for and I don't know where to post it, but just felt like posting that I was juggling my remote control to my tv and slammed it into the tv yet still haven;t hit the tv with my wiimote. lol

The Wii is a fun system. I enjoyed it.
post #320 of 323
Wife was looking for the Wii Fit Plus (and balance board) to make working out a little more fun, plus I got the Sports Resort game as well.

I will try to post some thoughts about this soon.

Got some good deals from Amazon and free shipping.
post #321 of 323
The wife picked one up on Black Friday from Toys R US. Got the Mario Game free with it. it is my daughters Christmas gift. looking forward to playing with it on Christmas morning.
post #322 of 323
the wife wanted the wii, with wii fit plus and ea active, the wii is cool. bowling and pool are fun. wii fit and ea active are not fun in my book. both of those games are evil and are trying to kill me slowly. im on day 3 with ea active and its a rest day, thank the creator. My wife laughs at me every time i do the workout and then laughs some more at me when i try to walk down the stairs after.

We are having a blast with our Wii so far. We have Super Mario( daughter loves it), Mario and Sonic at Olympic Games( too hard for me and almost too hard for my daughter), Wii Play( most of the games are kind of fun ), my daughter got a game called Nights Journey of Dreams( kind of a strange game to me but good graphics and game play, my daughter is fascinated by it) and of course the Wii sports that came with it( love the bowling, my daughter loves the boxing). All I need is Sports Resort and Wii Fit plus and I will be satisfied. Gotta save up some cash and hope they go on sale soon.
