I have been trying to buy a Wii for the past 2 months. None of the Best Buys in my area have them. No Walmarts, Targets, NO PLACE HAS THEM. Why Nintendo? Why is stock so short for the months that I have been trying to get one? I want to buy from an actual store but no one has them. Guess I'll have to keep playing this blasted STO. F&$&#!

Well, you had your out, but you re-upped your sub. You only have yourself to blame.

Either Nintendo cannot make them fast enough or they are keeping the supply lower than the demand intentionally. Who knows.

I gave one as a gift in 2008: bought it over a month before Christmas. When I purchased mine I bought the last one Wal-Mart had.

Typically, you cannot reserve one. Find out when the shipment comes in, and go to the store as soon as you can. You can probably order one online somewhere.

When i worked the entertainment counter at a Woolworths, i encountered a rather horrible woman due to a Wii. It was a week before christmas a couple of years ago, and she'd bought a Wii for her son.
Now this was when Wii's were like gold dust in the UK, we had roughly 50 calls a day asking if we had them in stock.
This marvelous woman decided that the games were too expensive, and so brought the Wii back asking for a refund. This wouldnt be too bad, if the kid didnt know about it, since he would never have known he was missing out. But no, she brought him along too. You should have seen the poor kids face, he looked heartbroken. The Wii of course sold again seconds after i put the refund through.

As for why you are having difficulty, Nintendo deliberately hold back stock to drive up demand. They've done it repeatedly since release every time sales figures seem to dip.

You can buy Wiis online, but they don't always have all the features that were promised, and might not work properly all the time, and might be a bit more boring than you expected.

WE <3 YOU EVIL CONAN!!!!!!!

but Wii's have been in short supply for a while now. like, a year.
like, if STO was selling like Wii's they would feel no need to scan for and shut down every thread about someone leaving the game.
fortunately, this time next year, you'll have what you really want
