#2
got to last step 2 comfirm order and the site crashed. grrr
#3
they are supposedly in stock on their website now
#4
you can buy a package online i guess but it showed no stock when i looked, though most stores should have stock on saturday.
#5
This is how I got mine last year.

They publicised that they would have stock from saturday morning. The branch I visited would have 50 consoles and I was 40th in the queue at 5am!!

But it was closer to christmas so people were a bit more desperate lol

I did the same at my local store last xmas ...how cold was it that night lol. Was deff worth it though!

we got my sons a few weeks back from here and other customers told OH that the que had started at 6 that morning he got there at 8ish and said he was near the back of the lot who got one that day. we were told in store they wouldn't reserve but would do any package etc that was available on their lists.

sometimes if you go in just before they close 9-30pm ish they sometimes have them out
Did this myself last time they did this and bought one

good idea.
#10
which paper ?
#11
ToysRus always make you buy bundles, although we called the local store and they said we could just buy the console by itself! I don't really trust that info but best if you can as all the bundled games are usually full RRP & you could buy the games elsewhere for much cheaper.

Anyway good luck to all :)
#12
No Wii Console as the standard package, but"Out of stock" on all the bundles!!!
#13
I was in the Toys store in Portsmouth and the manager said they will have some on Saturday morning. They will be on a first come, first served basis.

Hope this helps someone.

#23
same thing happened at toysrus last yr. Advert in paper, my mate queued for hours, first 30 got wiis
#24
Why put this in the Sun?

Without any ads each Toys R Us store could sell 50 per day just by people enquiring.

I smell a rat.

I really really doubt each shop will have 30 wiis.
#26
I doubt it too, was just giving an example, and the Wii shortage was worse last year on release imo
#27
dont know if this helps anyone....(be nice first post)

you can do it with a "real time stock monitor" and it works in the background and pops up if in stock somewhere!!

I know Game and Dixons had them in earlier today and have had them in regularly.

HTH
#28
should add as well, that the staff came out and gave people tickets out that qualified them to buy a wii (the 1st x no. of people)
#29
I work in toys r us.

I can tell you that we only sell them in bundles - unless this is an exception. I'm at work tomorrow and I've been in when they put them out before and people wait outside in their cars.

We had 40 that time and they went in 20 minutes.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I have recently acquired a Wii for my son as an xmas pressie. The easiest way to do it???

Open one or both of the links below and leave them open in the background while you are at work. They check stock on a multitude of retailers websites all the time and the minute they locate stock, you get a popup. You have to be very quick and very patient (sometimes days!) Oh and keep the credit card to hand also. Beware of some sites, because their stock check is not as 'realtime' as you would like. You often think you have found stock until an hour later when they cancel your order and advise they are all gone. Amazon is by far the best for accurate stock... If you get through the checkout here, then you're home and dry!

Good Luck! :thumbsup:

Check them intermittently because they sometimes fall over with all of the attention they currently receive. Need reloading now and then.

BUNDLES only thats right........They know that there is a shortage on these consoles so they take the p%ss by making them bundles only.
#32
You may like to know that my local Asda will have Wii consoles on sale Saturday morning (Chandlers Ford), might be all stores???

What price are these bundles?
#34
also... i got mine by text and reserve from Argos... even though at same time i was checking online reserve service and it was saying out of stock... apparently they reserve that quick they dont bother putting stock online so might be worth texting your store for stock!!

I *THINK* its the same in-store but I can't remember exactly.

As per usual - games you dont want to shift stock of unwanted items and also to chrage high prices!

I dont agree with it - i feel sorry for people when a 30 year old bloke is forced to have herbies racing.

Just come back from the Toys r Us at Gateshead/Metro Centre, there's a couple of people camped out already, i managed to get mario galaxy then saw that there were Wii Play (+ remote) boxes from the collection point, so I asked about them, he checked he was allowed to sell and I picked one up. £66 for the pair, great stuff
#38
might pop down in the AM with some warm drinks for the locals waiting outside

5 pound for a cup of tea :giggle:
#39
so how much will it be in toys r us?
suspended#40
As stated in Wii thread the bundles start at £250 & its at all Toysrus stores
