    In search of a Wii....

    Anyone have any suggestions on how to get one at retail somewhere here in So Cal? Seems to be out of stock in all of Orange County!

    Just keep checking the ad's. If the ad's show they have them, they will have ... well, some.

    You need to make sure you show up at the stores that have them ... EARLY. I'd avoid your best buys, wal-mart's, etc. The best bet's last Christmas were Targets. Generally they had at least 20 everytime it was in the ad.

    Good luck.

    Re: In search of a Wii....

    Have been informed to hit Gamestop at 7AM on Friday or ToysRUs at opening on Sunday. Geez, just didn't realize how hard it was going to be!

    Neighbor even works for a game store....he'll call when they come in, but still have to be first in line!

    Now I know how it feels to be looking for a "Tickle me Elmo" during the Christmas season, and I said...."I'll never do THAT!"

    Yeah, I'm looking too. I went to a Games for Less and they were selling them for $100 over the regular price, but "throwing in" a game. So I'm still looking as well. I really don't want to go out there this weekend, but I may have to spend the night at Ye Olde Target or something.
    A signature should go here.

    Good luck Wolffy! Hope you find one. They are pretty scarce up here too according to a friend of mine who works at a Best Buy nearby my workplace. They can't keep them in stock.

    yeah, but they were hard to find last year also. Her friend worked there and let her know when they came in stock.

    The forums at Cheap *** Gamer are a good place to scan. They usually post sunday ads a week or so in advance, so you can plan where to be.

    That's what they said last year as well. Ours had 2 (which were taken by employees before the store even opened).

    But it's worth a shot. Just get there EARLY (like 6am)

    LOL..well that sux

    I was lucky last year..My wife worked at Target and she was able to give me the scoop on how many her store was going to have on launch day and a few weeks later when we bought one for our friend as a bday/xmas gift.

    Like Clinks says, just get there early.
