*edit* Sorry, read your post too quick.

I just checked on eBay, yeah the cheapest is like $330, but it comes with 5 games, does the $250 retail one comes with any games?

What i did was called targets and walmarts to find out when they receive there shipments. Took me a week and 10 stores but i found a target with 4 of them and bought all of them. This was like 6 months ago.

Its amazing the shortage on the console even after a year of it being out.

Like this one, it said console + 5 games + 2 controls

And it comes with receipt, so not sure how much more expensive he's selling it for...

Check out the one for 330 after the auction ends. People are bidding them up in the last 30 seconds.

Yeah I figured the guy is probably making money on the shipping... but I have question though, how much is it suppose to be if you bought the same stuff in a retail store? $300? $350? If you're only paying like $50 more than retail, then I guess it's acceptable in the current stage...

I'm in the wrong business. Had no idea these suckers are so hard to get. I have seen them laying around our local game stop here for months.

A new wii is 250 +tax so about 275.

They are suppose to be coming out with a couple really cool games for the WII as well. Cant wait to get my WII on.

Ok $275... but that one has 5 games + an extra control, so $330 + shipping isn't that bad, no?

Anyway, I know it's pretty hard to accept a $42 shipping cost when you know it's probably cost $20 for the shipping... :comperror

Actually if you read closely the 5 games it is giving you is from the WII Sports and it is including with the console. The 2 controllers that they are referring to are the wii controller and nun-chuck that comes with the unit. They pull you into there auction by saying 5 games and 2 controllers when in reality thats the standard and comes with the system anyways. Some people amaze me. Trying to trick people into thinking they are getting extra crap.

I have been running into some. Let me know I'll pick one up for you when I see them next.

It becomes hard when the stores only get 3-4 machines per shipment

42 dollars would cover a wii shipped via ups with insurance. Maybe two of them, but not more unless you get ups discounts.
