Are Nintendo Wiis available in stores?

My nephew wants one but I have no idea where to get one. Is this something I can just walk into BestBuy and buy?

probally not, unless you get lucky...

My friend got his at gamestop, the manager said they get their deliveries on wednesday mornings so he camped out all morning until fedex showed up... That store only got 2 for the week.

I couldn't find one for a long time, so I resorted to Ebay about a month ago.

Fuck no! I was ready to buy one and went to gamestop.... I asked all about it and was ready to throw down the 5 benjamins but the asswipe never told me during the whole conversation they didnt have any in stock.

We lucked out and found one at the Walmart near me. There were two on the shelf and the guy said they had just put those out an hour ago.

so are you going to test drive it to make sure it works

all the hype over the PS3, and the Wii is still scarce after 5 months

I couldn't care less about the WII. It was my 14 yr old nephew who saved up $500 for one and was lucky enough to buy one for $260.
