thanks for the heads up voted hot.
i got mine delivered to the store cos i reckon (and hope) they will use their own delivery trucks rather than relying on the non existant/on strike postal service!!

Also girls, kids, fat and old people loves Wii. But that dosn't mean they buy any other wii games as all they need is the wii sport:giggle:. Do they realise that Wii only 50% more power then GameCube and have short life span. Mario Kart will be good, BUT online gonna suck! Because if you play Mario Kart DS Online loads of cheaters using "snaking" and action replay codes.
Loads of money to be made for Xmas as loads of ebay seller will stock up on these as they are cheap.

I just require just 'one' Wii for my sons birthday next week but have orders pending for four!!!

Why??? Because it has been known for orders made online to be cancelled and as soon as one arrives I will be happy and cancel the others....

I don't want to make money from others misery thank you very much!

I remember last Christmas when I almost didn't get Piranha Panic...phew!

:roll:

I wish everyone else did the same!

thanks for the heads up, HOT!

Snagged three.

cheers

Reported in the press this week that this is going to be in short supply for xmas.

ordered thanks

Ordered one too, many thanks, wife will be over the moon at xmas.:thumbsup:

The same could be said about the Ps3, but don't forget the wii has some fantastic games coming out in the coming months.

Part true, PS3 has blu-ray, and you can install ubuntu OS which makes it function as a pc, has a 10 year life cycle, hell lot powerful than Wii which hidden underneath its a Gamecube. Zelda and paper mario is a Gamecube game. PS3 games are coming soon now, about time. Games are easier and cheap to develope on Wii which is why you have lot of rubbish rushed games with added Wii control on it. Game developers for the Wii are just lazy and its a cash cow for them. Only "Nintendo" make the games that worth while for a Wii. So does that mean you gonna wait every few months or a year for "Nintendo" to release a game:giggle:

I wonder how many of these orders will be honoured?
At least they should be in time for Xmas

Has anyone had their cards debited yet for these orders. I ordered 2 but only one is showing up on my balance??

To answer that last question: Yes, that is what Nintendo gamers have been doing for years. Mario Galaxy, Smash Brothers, Wii Fit, Metroid Prime 3 and Mario Kart are more than enough to spend money on the machine (Wii MK will address the issues of the DS version, no snaking). And why will it have a short life span? A new console is only ever released when sales of the previous model begin to dip... and that doesn't look like any time soon. Also certain third party software does look awesome (Zack and wiki, Umbrella Chronicles, NiGHTS, Dewy's Adventure, Rayman 2 etc...), plus there are a host of development teams dedicated to Wii development.

I have a 360 and a Wii and I certainly do not regret my Wii purchase. A machine I enjoy more than any other.

Snaking is still avaliable on Mario Kart wii, was tested on the demo :thumbsup: just harder to pull but snaking expert won't have a proplem so it be lot hard for those try to learn it. Mario Galaxy, kiddies game(reminds of Sonic adventure and Nights) Wii Fit? Nope. third party software have their usual 65% score rates. As Nintendo said it them self Wii have only long legs(so no long life span). xbox 360 much better but RSOD :giggle:. Altho I not saying Wii its rubbish cos I know most girls got Wii which they don't buy any games for it. So it down to how serious a gamer you are really.

The Wii has some cracking games coming up in the next couple of months:

Super Mario Galaxy (being touted as the game of the year in many circles)
Nitrobike (ExciteTruck for motorcycles, online play)
Zack & Wiki - innovative point 'n' click adventure
Forever Blue - relaxing diving sim, online play, received very well by critics
Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles - Wii Zapper shooter
Ghost Squad - Zapper
Link's Crossbow Training - packed in with Zapper
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption - revolutionised FPS controls on consoles
Mario Kart Wii
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Soul Calibur Legends
Guitar Hero III
Battalion Wars 2
The Simpsons
Canis Canem Edit (Bully)
Rockstar's Table Tennis
Blocks (directed by Steven Spielberg)
Tomb Raider: Anniversary
Geometry Wars: Galaxies
Rayman Raving Rabbids 2
No More Heroes
NiGHTS
Manhunt 2 (import uncut version from Holland. )
Mario & Sonic at the Olympics

There's a good few exclusives there, as well as the multi-format titles. Yes, the number of games hasn't been great this year, but the end of 2007/into 2008 is brilliant.

Many thanks, been trying to get one for a wedding present! Fingers crossed.

Good deal, voted hot.

However, I have doubts about the processing of the orders too. At least Gameplay have processed my order from yesterday just fine and confirmed stock

If that were true then none of the overpriced ones on fleabay would sell either.

Quite. The fanboyism around here is rife! How can people say the Wii is so bad if it is still out of stock everywhere (just about), yet the PS3 and XB360 are well-stocked in many places?

And why are people moaning about "snaking"? It's part of the game and was intentional! Are those who are upset, secretly annoyed that they are not as good as the person that beats them?

yep the wii will be in short supply going onto xmas but ive heard that nintendo are going to release some stock before xmas but not from reliable sources so im not sure

its a great chance for ebayers to make some money, i just wish i had the cash myself

and for snaking, i never used to snake and used to hate being beaten by snakers, but once you play the game alot ul find that snaking is not bad at all and is not really cheatin imo, ive learnt how to snake and use it on snakers online but when i play someone that doesnt snake i dont use it

and the wii has a great line up coming out in the next few months, cant wait

Gameplay suggested the same to me yesterday, but didn't seem confident about the date the stock would arrive.

As for snaking, it's like moaning that people always use red shells to hit you ... it's an integral part of the game and is essential for beating TT ghosts and 150cc convincingly. You can't accuse someone of cheating just because they are more proficient at a game than you - that's pure infancy.

pretty pointless selling on ebay really. most are selling for around 220. so after all the ebay listing and fvf and paypal you wont make much at all.

blahblahblah

True, but you can bet your bottom dollar that closer to Christmas, desperate parents and so forth, will be willing to pay through the nose for them. I personally think it is pretty harsh, but if people are silly (desperate) enough to pay it, then there will always be plenty of people there to exploit it.

I should imagine Nintendo have realised this and would be very keen to not see it happen for one pure and simple reason: the "black market" trading means that they are missing out on profits.

They're the only one out of the 'big three' who make a straight profit on their consoles though, aren't they? They also pull it in through accessories (Wiimote £30, Nunchuk £15, etc) so they're hardly missing out.

Also, 'black market' hype just increases software spending.

You are quite right. But just because they make a profit on each unit sold, doesn't mean that they want the public to inflate the prices and be unhappy - it's not a Nintendo tactic (*cough* Sony *cough*). They want as many people as they can to actually have a Wii unit and to go and buy games, memory cards, controllers and downloads.

The accessories are where they probably make the most profit for sure, but you can't blame Nintendo for thinking outside of the box and making a good profit. They have been in decline for years now and this is only a good thing, as it is genuine competition in the market. If it weren't for Microsoft and Nintendo, Sony would have an effective monopoly - imagine the prices they would charge then!

Nope, software is always the most profit and always will be. Thats why you can see silly prices for Wii games only after a short while from release as they don't cost very much to develope for wii. Games are regularly made unlike accessories people aint gonna buy more than 4 wiimote per console. We hear how many Wii sold, but we don't hear how many games sold:whistling: like xbox 360

I don't doubt that you are correct, but there always remains one problem: piracy and the Wii Key etc.

You can download games, but you can't download accessories :giggle:

With all these piracy you still don't hear how many wii games sold, but you still hear about PS2, NDS, Xbox, Xbox 360, PC etc... Not gonna comment on PS3 cause they still wanting for their titles to release. Look at the PSP been doing really bad, but after the slim version and Final Fantasy 7:Crisis Core it pushed some extra units out. When Final Fantasy 7:Crisis Core comes out in the U.S its when I get a PSP lite

Aye, the PSP has a lot of potential, more so with the firmware updates allowing PS1 games to be played on it quite easily. However, the DS is still selling a lot more units than the PSP. I have a DS for one reason, which is the same reason for getting the Wii: undisputed pure game-play.

I agree that a good game sells consoles for sure - you only have to look at Halo 3, any Gran Turismo title and also Zelda games (Ocarina of Time on the N64 springs to mind a lot here!). However, the PS3 needs some extremely good titles to catch up with the market, but I have seen some bits of Assassin's Creed and I am very impressed! I would think that this game alone may convince a few potential buyers, along with the new Metal Gear.

Ordered mine on Amazon and will have it delivered by 31/10 :-( Wish that I could wait until now so that i could have it next week. Voted hot anyway.

Globally, both of Nintendo's consoles have been doing very well for themselves.

The US all format console sales for June:

http://media.gigex.com/biz/images/articles/June07NPD.gif

Nintendo and the third parties are raking it in, the Western third party devs (Ubi and EA excepted) have been literally pooping themselves trying to retool and get with the programme since the whitewash last Christmas.

The ELSPA (Chart-Track) UK charts, NPD Group/NPD Funworld US charts and Media Create Co. Jap charts are up every week on the Teletext website, or GameCentral on page 690 Channel 4 Teletext, or 805 Freeview on ITV.

How much did Amazon charge out of interest? I only see market place sales at really silly prices (£269+), which is madness.
