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.
i'm sure it's the former. Only an idiot would intentionally keep supply low, especially with the demand there has been for them since launch.

I dunno. I think there was a recently court case over a few LCD companies 'price fixing' and keeping thier production low, in order to keep prices hight.

Not really the same, considering the fact that, until recently, the Wii was the lowest-priced gaming system available, of the current-gen ones. I do believe it's tied with the bargain-bin 360, but who would want that, anyway?

You're not out of luck. You're IN luck.

What in the world would possess you to buy a Wii? WHY? Its......for little kids man! Last gen graphics. And it has silly little motion remotes that you wave around in the air. You cant maintain arm flab if you do that.

And games are all about sitting on your rump and doing practically nothing. Excersise is for single people. Im married.

Anyways, go get a 360 or a PS3. A Wii? Are you serious? For shame.

True, but it's still a situation where the price fix was to keep prices UP, where as the Wii was always kept DOWN.
