Its not easy been looking for last 2 weeks. Its a pain in the ***. I heard rumor though come spring the system drops 50$ (not sure on that) but I do know it also comes with a dvd player and multiple colors come spring. So I am thinking of waiting since demand will be down then.

no necessarily. Most stores are getting them through ups shipments. That means stores like ebgames, gamestop and I know target and walmart put them on shelves right away. I heard best buy and a couple others hold till next day.

Well I was just stating gamestop, ebgames, and walmart i know for a fact get thier shipments midday usually anywhere from 11:00 am and later since its ups. They put them on shelves. I am just saying not all places sell them on opening. I just missed my wii yesterday by half an hour at a walmart they got them at 4 and i was there at 4:30.

I can walk into EB games right now and buy one. Maybe they aren't popular over here..

I know I personally could care less for one.

Sure, sounds good. I was actually supposed to give d-day a call this weekend and go downtown. I went out the past 2 nights so I'm a bit drained.

We hit Mona's every Thurs night so you should come out then. It's like our Cheers.

You did? I played through like 2 boards, then I popped in Zelda and got hooked. It didn't grab my interest, poor graphics, story-line was lame thus far. Should I give it a few more tries?

For those interested, at a store by me they said they were getting shipments that would be instock on Feb. 11.

Yeah I was able to pick one up here in San Antonio @ Walmart. Thing is so much fun, Zelda is the bomb, but I downloaded SNES Legen of Zelda:Link to the Past ( on of my all time favs) and have been playing that none stop.

I just called all the Wal-marts and asked when they would be getting one in. It seems its almot harder to find a second remote then a system. Had to go to about 10 different stores to find a second remote.

They had a TON at Sawgrass Mall last week.....my boy got one.

Originally, I called it a dumb system, but now I want one. Wish I had wanted one last week, because now when I do want one, I can't find one, lol. I just want it for Zelda and the Mario games. I thought those games were coming next gen, guess not.

Zelda is $$$, and will provide days of fun.

they had non bundles available today at CC as well...but its as hard to find the controllers as it is the stupid console....

I knew if I got one I'd want another controller and would be scouring the net/stores like mad trying to find one, so now i have 2 full controllers :D

need the classic controller though, and some component cables...should run about 40 for both

I got a Wii about a month ago and I hate that POS. I knew from the beginning that I would hate the "Wiimote" controller garbage but I thought that you could play all the games using Gamecube or Classics controllers. Well, now I know better and that piece of **** is heading for a 1 day auction on ebay tonight.

For those that are interested Circuit City and Sears both had the Wii listed in the Sunday ads so you might be able to still find one there.

Your one of the very few people I have heard don't like it. I have heard most of the part nothing but good things.

I don't know..

The Wii as well as the Gamecube seemed way to kiddie for me to even bother with. If the Wii would remake games like Contra and games like that then I'd look into it. Instead they come out with games that look like they could've been made on the n64 and add a Wii mote.

Contra is on Xbox Live. I've been playing the crap out of that game since I downloaded it.

I agree with the Wii being too kiddie as well. Hell the main reason I bought it was to download the old school games but a lot of them are going to/already have released on Xbox live so there's basically no reason for me to have a Wii. Too bad Nintendo won't have exclusive rights to the next Resident Evil or I might be tempted to keep the Wii. Instead the 360 is the ultimate next gen console imo. Of course my 360 has given me the 3 red lights of death several times. I should really send it in since I paid for the extended warranty.

I know Contra is on there but they need to come out and revamp it or something. I know they've tried making some lately and only one was fairly decent. They should just try to recreate some of the original games like Rampart and games (although not original nintendo) Bomberman (I know it's on the 360 but it's different).
