    Nintendo Wii console

    I'm on the lookout for a Wii console; I think I know the answer already - either I get one of those bundles (with a load of games we don't want for £100 extra) or just be patient. Every shop we've asked doesn't have any idea when they'll be getting any more in. I just thought it would be worth asking if anyone out there might know when any were due in (Notts/Derby area)? Thanks :o)

    Have you tried the Wii stock checker, if not i'll dig the link up for you.

    You still have to be patient though.

    No, I've not heard of that. Would appreciate it if you could find it, thanks. I know it would be best to wait, but thought it would be nice to have it for hols.

    Just google for 'wii stock'. There are several sites.

    These are the main two I used.

    I do have 1 for Sale, if you put a "Wanted" thread in the "For Sale" forum you could have it today.

    No shops in Nottingham have them, believe me, all my friends are moaning.

    This is where I got my info from and if you put it on real time stock checker at the top of the page you can browse online and a popup will come up when consoles are available. Better to ignore the package deals in real time or you get a popup every minute.

    Why not just buy a bundle and sell the games that you don't want?

    I got a bundle from Gamestation for £299. It came with five games, including Wii Sports. I have now sold one of the games for £25 and got a few people offering me £30 each for the other two. If I sell those two as well that is £85 back so in theory the console & a brand new game £39.99 game cost me £214.99

    Selling the games are a lot of hassle.

    I would expect the £39.99 game that you are keeping can be got cheaper than £39.99.

    No, it is a new one, only came out the other week so it still has a high value. Cheapest I have seen it for online is £34.99.

    Why is it hassle to sell the games? Just bung them on Ebay or see if anyone you know wants to buy one?

    If the OP really just wants the console, just hang on for a few weeks. They will start to come back in stock again.

    So it is available for less than £39.99 :?

    Selling games on ebay that you've paid full price on is not likely to yield high results.
    I have sold a few to friends, but these are games that i've bought through codes etc, not ones that are often hard to shift full priced bundled ones.

    He/she wanted one to play in the holidays, which i'm assuming is the xmas holidays, not Easter.

    Yes, if I had the choice, I would prefer to get one now (my kids are already complaining how bored they are). I don't know if I'm just being fussy but I do want to buy from a shop (somewhere to return it if we have any probs etc), and get one without the hassle of selling on unwanted games. So patience it is!

    Yes, it is £34.99 but not including postage & packaging. It can probably be found cheaper but I am not really fussed about it.

    The ones I got in the bundle are not hard to shift ones, three of them are in the Wii Charts (two of them are new out) and one of them has a RRP of £29.99 which I sold for £25 + postage.
