Anyone know where to find Nintendo Wii's right now?

I know it's a long shot this close to Christmas, but anyone have any information where to locate one?

They are on Amazon.com, but the prices are way high. Unless you need one right away, I would just order one off of Bestbuy or a retailer and wait.

I'm actually looking for one for my wife. She wants one. I was told anything to do with Wii's is difficult to locate. My sister-in-law wants a Wii Fit and I was told by the guy at Fry's if I wanted one of those, I had to be there on a day they get their shipments within 2 hours of arriving.

TARGET is the best place i have seen to get them....... People always over look Target for game systems and that is where I got my Wii last year when you couldn't find them.

Best Buy at I-20 and Hulen had about 25 of them 2 days ago. They always seem to have a large supply of them at that location.

Nintendo has been dragging this shit out long enough! My buddy was looking for one and the guy at best buy said they usually only get 2 or 3 on each shippment. Its about time Nintendo stopped dragging their heals like the damn things just came out last month.
