Only two years too late. I'm sure nintendo has lost some sales because of lack of availability.

They are still outselling Xbox 360 and PS3 my many units every month.

We just got one for my son's 7th birthday which is coming up this weekend. PITA to find one. We were calling all over the place, etc. Asking when trucks came in -- what's the best day/time to call, etc.

We eventually found one and had my Sister-in-law run over there after work at 3 (she was leaving early that day for some reason) as it was near where she was, as we didn't wnat to take the chance that it wouldn't be there by the time we got there at 6 or 7 or whatever.

Ridiculous.

They told my wife and I at Target that it would be weeks before we'd be able to get one. We went to the Gamestop next door and promptly bought a new one that they had in stock. I don't buy the unavailability myth.

As I said in the other thread, Blockbuster is also selling them. And I don't think many people realize this yet.

My fiancee's grandma wants to spend approx. $200 on her for a wedding shower gift and asked her what she most wanted off our registry. I'm trying to talk her in to thinking outside the box and snagging a Wii. :) With the release of Mario Kart she's actually thinking about it as it's the only video game she ever enjoyed playing.

NIntendo is leaving the other 2 consoles in the ****ing dust. They are ok despite not being able to make demands. Their lead is so far ahead, its not even funny right now.

I just hope the Wii 2 doesn't come out soon. I've only had my Wii since Christmas, and I won't buy a new system any time soon.

Yea but they should have predicted that from the beginning. Everyone knows the wii is #1, everything else is #2.

Except that it's not actually as good. Even though I have one, I don't play it nearly as much as I play my 360. I only have it for the wife. I don't play it on my own.

I think that's the point, though. The Wii isn't meant for hardcore gamers - they're going for the family market that the other two consoles have effectively left behind.

With the whipping Wii has put on the 360, I am curious to see what their next console is like. Combine the 360's graphics and gameplay with motion control and I think a sweet system would result.

I know, but just because it's selling more right now doesn't mean it's "better." Just means it's popular.

I will say that I will most likely be getting the Force Unleased on the Wii. Lightsaber FTW.

Everything but PC, apparently. Glad I got the Xbox and the Wii.

Will probably have to pay the extra 10 bucks for the 360 graphics level though. I do like the gameplay of the Wii but the graphics do leave me wanting.

True. I got the better cables to increase the resolution (hooked up to the component jack instead of AV), but there's not that much difference, IMO.

I'll probably up the Star Wars game for Xbox.

Depending on your TV the 360 version should definitly have the edge on graphics. I am really looking forward to this one.
