Agreed. I jumped in and preordered the $650 bundle from Walmart but luckily I'll be able to return the 6 games I don't want in store.

I read somewhere that Nintendo hopes to have enough so that 7 out of 10 kids could own one by the first of the new year. (4 million selling goal) Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Just keep checking every couple days or so, I'm sure you'll find one sooner than you think.

Side note, if you'll notice the high prices on ebay, probably 80% or greater are from new ebay users or users with less than 3 feedback. Looks like the same genre of people who spike the PS3 auctions and don't pay are doing the same thing for the Wii.

im in framingham and the best buy here had a line of over 75 people so i went on to cirsuit city where the line was much shorter so i thought id have a better shot but it turns out the circuit city only got 17 in and i was # 28. So im still looking and hopefully it won't be to long.

Haha I managed to get two of them. Me and my friends camped out and got the top 10 spots in line, even though only 5 of us were only getting one. I had my brother get me a second one and its going on eBay. My friend sold his ticket to some guy that came at the last minute for $120. I guess thats what we get for arriving at Wal Mart at 7 AM. Wii also had a tent. biggrin.gif

I am not sure if this is accurate but I just checked the walmart site and it already says it has the 600$ bundle in stock! So I guess it will be easier then you initially thought wink.gif I am thinking of getting one for Christmas anyways so good luck to us all smile.gif

that sucks sad.gif i actually called bestbuys since i had a gift certificate, but they said they had a line out front and wouldn't say how many systems they had, i actually went to target specifically because the store itself told me how many they would have.
