Nintendo Wii

What's a good price on a Wii? Best place to get one?

My daughter wants one this year for Christmas and I was thinking this could be do-able because I'll use it too LOL...

To those that have then, what are some good games to look into?

The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character

good luck finding one

wii's are the hardest things to find for xmas 2 years running

they msrp for $249, but I don't think you'll find one for that price

all stores are sold out indefiinitely

you can get them online, but they'll be higher priced, or be bundled with a lot of stuff to justify a higher price

If you have easy access to Walmarts in the south and western suburbs, you could find one there by checking often. Otherwise, as already stated, it is a tough find. I got mine in January from CL for $300 (new), that was after trying to negotiate with a lot of folks, the kid just wanted to get rid of his, others thought they were holding out for the desperate (well, more desperate then me) sucker.

Good Luck,
Greg

I got one for my son right after x-mas last year. I had a hard time finsing them untill my co-worker told me his niece worked at a walmart. Next time they came in she set one to the side and baught it herself. I just paid her back what she paid for it with the discount and threw twenty bucks her way for the help. It was well worth it. I use it just as much as the kid does and it's always fun to play it with him.

My head is spinning from searching sites. Thanks everyone for the search options.

Lucky for me, the child has some serious attitude going on right now so I'm not worried about finding it at the moment. LOL

If it's meant to be, we'll find it.

I buy a ton of stuff from them. Generally very reliable. Thus far any errors have favored me. There is alos free shipping on this and no IL sales tax.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

The stores will be moving these as fast as they get them with x-mas around the corner. If you are serious to find on should not be to hard before then at retail price. The target in Naperville has been pretty good about having them often. If you need help finding it let me know. Now on the search for some bakugan things. (report card rewards).

Not "Demanding" just expressing the desire to own one
