    How to get a wii.

    First off, this thread is for wii only. The rest of the 7th gen and the current gen are to be left out, unless you are comparing games, and their alternate system counterparts.
    Post here your tips on how to get a wii.
    For instance, theres sites that tell what stores have wii's and when they will get more.
    ps3seeker.com/wii for instance is perfect for finding wii's in your area, and finding out when new ones come in.
    Wal-mart, at least the wal-mart here anyway, said they are not getting anymore till after christmas.
    What im doing, is im gonna go to bestbuy on the 15th, and wait until the 17th. This is gonna be my longest wait, by far. But i have a ds, so il just play with other ppl all day. ))(*

    You're indirectly asking for help. So this is a help topic. Anyways, if someone wants a wii, they should google it, or use ebay.

    The only way you're gonna get it is if you go early in the morning to a store, like over here where I live, Toys R Us is the best place to go because that's where they get shipped the most in stock. In the morning people line up to get it and if you don't go early, your screwed because they would have already been sold out by that point. So good luck on getting on anyways...
    Are you hungry!?!

    TM - damn it.
    Edited.

    For now, the only real way to get one is to find out when a store's going to get a shipment in, and get in line a few hours before. (the bigger the city, the earlier you'll need to be)

    Otherwise, you'll need to wait until after christmas, (possibly later) when they're more readily available like the 360.

    Actually, i know how im getting mine.
    What im going to do, is on the 16th, eat a LOT and got to wall mart at 12, wait 12 hours in line with the other ppl, and pick one up, along with zelda, if its in stock, a memory card, and a wifi usb adapter. If zeldas not there im going to go to best buy, since theyre getting stuff in stock on the 17th which is why theyve been holding wii's.
    Hopefully, i wont have to wait a full 12 hours, but i want to make sure i get my wii.

    Yeah im getting zelda of course. Its the best wii game so far, and it reminds me of past zelda games. Its just awesome. I recently picked up another game to hold me off until i get my wii, and it helps alot. If anyone is waiting to get theirs, but isnt playing anything right now, i recommend buying a cheap, good game to play until you get yours.

    Your right. You absolutely should NOT pay more money then the wii costs at retail.

    how is it pointless? this is to help people that are trying to get a wii.
    Heres a good way to find one, go to ps3seeker.com/wii and you will find the wii seeker.

    how to get one

    my cousin just got one and first off, i'd like to say it rocks
    second, he told me that his dad went to eb games every day at like seven in the morning before school.
    finally, he got it because his dad got a number and waited two hours waiting for one, which he might not have got anyway.
    I suggest being patient and waiting till after Christmas unless you want to end up like my uncle.
