    So I was refreshing EBGAMES wii main page over and over. I finally decided to do a search like at 2000 EST. And there it was.... I ordered one. However, when my friend tried to order, the item went unnavailable. Preorder is over...

    dude you paid 800 dollars for a Wii? Are you ok? I know you get a whole bunch of games and stuff but damn. Nintendo said 1-2 million at launch you know...

    AND THEY CHARGED YOU SHIPPING?!?!?! :eek: on a $700 order? cheap bastards...

    yeah... IMO, the EB/Gamestop preorder bundle was overpriced and really not worth it...

    I'm fairly confident that the Wii won't be *that* hard to come by on launch day... and if it is, you should certainly be able to get one within the first week or so. Spending a little time online using coupons and such can save you money by buying stuff separately too

    Don't you know any better? Never buy bundles from anywhere, fact.

    You all are overestimating the availability of this system. I'm sure if it.

    I believe the consensus is that you are understimating the availability. We've been talkin' about it for a while on this forum.

    We will see. I feel confident about this. People will always pay more on eBay.
