Anyone know where I can get a Wii in the Seattle area? I have been super lame and not been keeping up with how fast these were going tp sell out!!! Then of course Andru got Nintendo to bring a Wii to MindCamp 3.0 where I got to play it for a while and see that my kids can play games without sitting on the couch for hours….and my wife might play some of the games with us….so now I am all stoked to replace the GameCube with a Wii this Christmas, but no one seems to have one available (and no I’m not paying more then $250, the kids will get a snow globe to share before that happens)
On a side note, does this really increase sales? I understand building the desirability up and how availability plays into it, but does the amount of people who decide they want one because they are hard to get offset the amount of people who don’t buy one because they are hard to get? Of course I looked around for a bit and couldn’t find any studies on the topic….anyone out there do any studies on this?? I am curious because it pisses me off that I can’t get one right now :)
The kids are not getting a Wii this christmas….I may be getting old, but this is a pain in the butt to get one and I have more important things to do……maybe we’ll get one when they are available.
