There is also a £4.95 delivery charge. Not a bad price in total though.

Don't forget that you can get 5% from Quidco.

woolworths add another 4.95 if you order two and another for three etc.

I played with a wii for the first time at the weekend, for about five hours. I couldn't sleep afterwards. Terrible things!

apparently quido doesnt pay cash back on wiis

Can't believe these things are still so hard to come by!

fought off the wife to bag one - another step towards marriage bliss!

my security check has gone thru and its now saying 'order placed with our suppliers'!!
fingers crossed (again!!)

Didnt realise they were in such short supply.. Im hoping to get one for my mrs birthday in early november... i better start shopping around.

Just managed to get one from woolies online.. it did say they were out of stock.. checked a few mins later and they were back in..

yeah i just went back on to get another one for a mate of mine in the office and they appear to be back in stock-well my mate has ordered it so will wait and see what happens!
maybe its part of Nintendo Corps ploy to rush people into panic buying Wii's or maybe not! Glad I got one thanks again OP!! rep added

I ordered one and I'm in the security check bit now. Hopefully it will go through. Thanks OP

I picked one up five minutes ago (cheers OP).

think one of main reasons they are in short supply are alot of people are just buying them to sell on ebay for a profit. noticed on a different thread on here somebody mentioned they had 12 GRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!. I'm trying to get one for my son for Christmas. Thought I had got one on Sunday from Virgin until they screwed up and left alot of people disappointed :x

Can't really blame them... If i had the time and initial outlay of money i'd do it. If people out there are willing to pay stupid prices then thats their choice.. I agree that its slightly annoying for people who want to buy one for themselves... Its business

I ordered one through powerplaydirect, two days ago, not sure if they're still in stock, can go through Quidco as well, worked out about £28.50

Just had an email cancelling the 2 I ordered this morning:x

how come

did your account say "awaiting despatch"?

I didn't check tbh. Of the 7 possible reasons in the email it could only be:

We are unable to fulfil the total quantity you ordered (e.g. if you ordered 5 and we only have 4 in stock). Despite our efforts to locate the required stock, we have been unable to fulfil your order for this product. In order to avoid continued disappointment we have cancelled this part of your order on your behalf. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience or confusion caused.
:?:

might be as I think you are only allowed to order 1??

just spoke to my sis-in-law
she said they (woolworths) had 1600 and staff were even ordering them through the online service... she got 3 for friends who are on the shop's waiting list

just checked my order and it says Status: Back Order or Pre-Release... hmmm

ive just got mine cancelled
not a very happy bunny

Are people still struggling getting a Wii???

mine now says back order or pre release.. Time to start ordering them from elsewhere and see which one turns up first.

Can someone tell me if i want to play wii sports two player mode do i have to get a wii remote and a wii numchuck thingy?

I doubt that it was anything to do with the fact that you tried ordering 5...as i put in my order for just one and got the same standard email reply as your self.....it would appear that both virgin megastore and woolworths use the same ****** set up on web site so too many people are allowed to order stock that does not exist!!
personally i would not rely on either of those two groups!!

Got another one from john lewis today with the £10 code off as well £169 +quidco they had 10 in stock when i looked after i had checked out they had all gone.Got confirmation e-mail to say i bagged one it is being despatched you have to keep just checking on these websites a few are trickling through now and again.
