    Anyone have any tips on getting hold of one of those nintendo wii online? John Lewis had them earlier, but they sold out in minutes I think.

    Instore on argos seems to be fairly good.
    Me and a friend each got one within 2 days.

    We went into store, typed product code into machine, it says out of stock then allows you to press the enter button to see delivery options, at which point it tells you how many will be available soon at that store and allows you to reserve one.

    But in the coming weeks they will be widely available.

    I think somebody is selling one on the FS/FT forum if you are interested.

    I must stress that I don't know the poster.

    Preorder one at game (2nd jan) and got it in 4 days,

    wii's won't be readily available till late feb, just gonna have to be vigilant beforehand to pick one up. Ive a few online in stock over the past month, u just have to be in the right place at the right time i think.

    Slightly off topic but if anyone is interested I've two wii plays reserved at Argos Sheffield Angel St which I'm not going to be able to get. Reservation is held until closing today. PM me if you would like res number.

    rang game at about 5 to 9 in swansea this morning and they had them, kept me one until tonight. can't find wii play though

    Please see my post of today in teh Official Wii thread. hopefully it will be of help.

    Good luck

    OK, here's a copy of my post in the other thread

    For anyone struggling to get a Wii or anyone with an unfulfilled order, here is my advice.

    Phone around all the GAME stores in your local area at 9:00am every day - even if they tell you they are not expecting any in.

    GAME seem to have been receiving a handfull of deliveries quite regularly and all of their pre-orders seem to be fulfilled now.

    Trust me, it is possible to get one - maybe even very soon.
    I tried this teh week before Christmas and managed to get one on 21st Dec and thena second one for my friend on 22nd dec. This was pretty much when demand was at it's highest.

    If you do find one, you can immediately cancel your pre-order elsewhere if you have one so nothing has been lost but the cost of a few local phone calls.

    If I get the chance, i may even start phoning around my locals for another to help one of you poor soles out. if I get one, i will post a message but it will have to be first come first served I'm afraid.

    Cheers & good luck

    PS. Stick at it - the Wii is a great machine and I'm not even a big game player.

    listen to this guy, he speaketh the truth! i'd just about given up hope and was going to order one off powerplay direct and wait for as long as it took, but tried one more go at ringing my local game yesterday morning, and lo and behold, they had a shipment! (it was the kingston on thames branch btw), would've posted earlier but i've been too busy playing on my new toy, wheee! or rather, wiiiiiiii!
