    Has anyone found one anywhere today?

    Or know of a place that's selling it.

    I tried to check with argos as it's not worth ANOTHER wasted journey but couldn't get the store locator to work to enable me to find the store number then call the check stock hotline.

    Phoned round all the Game stores and although a couple of them were helpful and told me they'd be getting another load in tomorrow, others very kindly laughed at me and said they'd get none in till after New Year!

    Searching round all the sites and still found nothing.

    Interestingly someone did mention Argos got deliveries today however I was told by one of the more helpful Game staff members that there aren't any deliveries the day after boxing day.

    Anyone with any info would be great, thanks

    I know you say Argos is a waste of time, but i found one by mistake today, son was going to spend christmas money and while i was there thought I would just check ( as i had done before with the instore availability thingy ) and it said, no stock but press enter to find out more, so i did, I hadnt noticed this facility before, and it said 1 for pre order left for delivery tomorrow, so i preordered and have a little slip to prove it... cant beleive it, wanted one for our new year party, I am well pleased.. What I am trying to say is if one argos is getting them tomorrow, it cant be the only 1? I am in the S.E... good luck in your search..:)

    try [url]www.adtrader.co.uk[/url] theres a few on there around 200 quid. I'll be searchin the high street tomorrow :viking:

    few places are taking pre orders now and they weren't before so maby a sign they have word on stocks going up :thumbsup:

    Thanks for all the suggestions people but I've now tried every shop I could think of (phone) and none of them had any at all.

    Not visited Argos but it's too much of a trek just to be told no again.

    Ah well, it's going to be a Wii-free new year

    Have you tried UK SOFTWARE TECH it show they have them on there, i don't know anything about the site sorry.

    thanks for that but it's £300 on there for the base pack :x

    Anyone know anywhere else?

    Thanks

    That's a total fortune! Mine is on ebay at the moment, I bought it as a total impulse buy. I'm just really looking to get my money back on it. I think the prices on ebay will drop over the weekend, and they should be fetching retail by the middle of next week. I know that's too late for you, but it would be your best bet at the moment I think!

    I'll give you your money back for it


    Means you don't have to wait till ebay's finished?


    PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE

    but my money back wasn't retail price and I wouldn't want to charge anyone on HUKD more than retail. I will just leave it to finish tomorrow on scambay!

    I sold mine to my local CEX for £230, I think I was lucky though as they had already been sold 10 yesterday alone.

    I paid that for my one, then went and bought extra controllers and a nunchuck all ready for it, but never got round to playing it!

    Just give it a couple of weeks, they are already selling for less on Ebay than yesterday which was less than the day before etc.

    From a personal point of view I'd say just give people enough time to realise how crap they are and you'll soon be able to get one for reasonable prices

    Comet have Wii instock at the moment:w00t:

    where??? cant find any online?

    It isn't online. They claimed they purchased off the phone.

    I can't see the wii on comets website...

    Comet do not have it listed on their site. Check the post above yours.

    hmm might give them a phone tomorrow moring then. 8.30 it open iirc

    I've been looking for a Wii for ages, and i walked into Argos in perry barr, birmingham yesterday and the lady said they are being delivered one today, i reserved it, and went in today and got my Wii, its excellent, found a controller and wii play at currys but no one seems to have any Nnunchucks.

    none anywhere here in scotland

    Look what I found!

    Anyone think that's reliable? =\

    Thats what I was thinking, will give them a ring in the morning to get more info.

    I'm not too sure because:

    1) 0700 number? Eh?
    2) £149.99 - why so cheap? It's not even been out for a month...
    3) PS3 pricing isn't accurate and it says it's released on 2nd Feb... instead of March.

    hmm tried calling them and it all sounds a bit personal for my liking. Will be trying Comet at 8.30 tomorrow though

    It sounds dodgy too me. I just rang them all i got was a answer machine saying please leave a message. Checked on google too found no information on them.

    Not forgetting a lot of their graphics are mucked up and their prices strange.

    Why over the phone? I think its to have less chance of getting caught via IP address IMO.

    Did anyone see "The Real Hustle 12 Scams of Christmas"?
    One of them was an internet company offering Wii, people paid by card then the conmen pitched up with a Wii box containing a brick! but here's the sting! said that the person had to pay cash as the transaction hadn't gone through :x if they didn't pay he would take the "console" to the next person on his list! people just paid up cos they wanted the "must have prezzie".
    Just be careful peeps.

    Sherlock :santa:

    @sherlock...
    Yes i saw that real hustle and it was really ridiculous! I would never trust any website which is offering stupid prices ie. the one mentioned above as 1. the site looks really unprofesional 2. No customer reviews can be found for it either. Best to avoid and wait a few days rather than be £150 out of pocket.

    That site also missed the C out of the word screens.

    It's most probably bull.

    If you are on a search for a wii like me... i think amazon.co.uk will have some stock in tomorrow but i dont know for sure... hope this helps.

    btw i just discovered this site and think its wicked!!! EXCELLENT WEBSITE AND FORUMS.

    IT's a scam...
