OT: Where can I get a Wii for the kids

Well I didn't listen to the Mrs. and waited to get a Wii for the kids. Any ideas, I am not going to pay an outrageous price for a $249.00 unit.

DONT get a PS3... your family/kids will like the wii way better. Just ask one of the kids that works in the electronics section of best buy/ circuit city etc when the trucks come in... and show up at like 6am that morning. Thats how my wife got mine almost a year ago.

Some cool games:
EA Playground, Wii Play and Wii Sports, Smarty Pants, Big Brain Academy, Metroid, Battalion Wars 2 Wii. GL!!

That is a good deal:
*Wii Unit (comes with Wii Sports, One wiimote and one nunchuck): $250
*ONE wiimote: about $40
*ONE nunchuck: $20
*ONE wii game: $50

So for 3 wiimotes and nunchucks, it would cost you about $180, and the 3 games would run you at least $130-150... so everything for around $600 is reasonable....especially if you cant find the thing anywhere! :P I have been reading that the wii will be THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER gift this year.... so if you get your hand on one... BUY IT! If I see one or two anwhere, I am gonna buy it and sell it on ebay myself.... GL

i have a PS3 and i love it the blue ray is a plus and my son plays it also but i also want the Wii for them i remember growing up on Mario and i want the same for him Besides i played Mario Galaxy and that game rocks i had so much fun. They are both great systems and give them the same preference. I am now 26 and i have been playing video games since i was 4 years old (Atari)

i think i will still play even 60

I would check craigslist.org. I am not sure if they use it in your area but much less popular than ebay so can normally find stuff alittle cheaper.I got a wii for the kids in october and got some extras like an extra controller and wii sports. I ended up calling the guy who was selling it and only paid 45.00 over the store price.....scott
