yep, I found this out. all 4 stores by me are sold out.
geez, you only checked 4 stores
looks like you'll need to camp out to get it - that would mean some work to turn a profit.

I wouldn't mind camping out a day to sell it for 2 or 3 times the price

my gf called 6 down by her. all gone also. and yes, I am not preparing for the campout. If I could have, I would have preordered at all the stores by us. These things could sell for over 2 grand.

I pre-ordered my Wii this morning. My EB had 26 units, I got to the store 5 minutes after opening, and I was the 20th person in line.

my typical pattern is to camp out for the second shipment at a store like Best Buy. it's usually a few weeks or a month after the first shipment, so comments from the general public are much more easy to come by and you have a better idea of what you're getting....plus you can try out the demo one at the store and get a feel for how much you like it

someone told me on Friday that xbox 360 was releasing an add on for $200 that made the 360 capable of playing HD DVDs. I just checked Best Buy and Circuit City online and found no mention of it. Most 'game' sites are blocked at work...anyone no any specifics on this?
