Anyone know where I should get a Wii from? I know there are all sorts of random places, but I want a reputable place at the right price. I can get a bundle from Gamestop, but I know I don't want half the games it comes with. (Sonic? Cooking Mama? Please...)

Next on my list is an Xbox360 Elite 120gb coming out end of April. Starts at $479 I believe. If any of you are interested in entering giveaways or looking for some sites that have great deals, just email me and I'll hook you up. Msg me at icepick345[at]aim[dot]com.

Thanks KT! That's what I was looking for, but just as I suspected, nothing's in stock anywhere.

If I see a plain Wii, should I buy it and sent it to you?

Still single, can't imagine why.

What I found from our Wii chase....

Toys R Us gets more stock but they were further away from us.

Find out when your local Gamestop generally gets deliveries. Ours were Tu & Th around 2pm. Call or hang out around that time. First come, first serve.

When I looked prices were fairly consistent. You may find better now, not sure. It's still in demand.

As to game reviews, the best place out there (IMHO) is www.gamespot.com.

Thanks daj, I've been a Gamespot member for years and I always go there first for reviews. Toys R Us is at least an hour away. The closest is Gamestop, 20 minutes. I'll check them out, but I figured I'd try online first. I really can't be anywhere before 4pm on weekdays to wait for something to come in stock... you know, work and all.

EDIT: They have the Nintendo Wii Family Pack which you can reserve online for $550. It's actually worth it with the system, extra nunchuck, wiimote, memory card and 4 games. Only problem is the only game I want is Zelda and maybe Monkey Ball. I wonder if I can return the games new and unopened for something of equal value... I'm gonna want Mario Party 8 and Super Smash Bros when they come out... probably Super Paper Mario and Warioware too.

If you read the shipping information, they may substitutes the games. Also first ordered, first served. If they run out, you're SOL so you better make up your mind quickly.

Ugh, MB would kill me. Well, she would eventually forgive me because she would play it just as much... But she'd prefer something small, round and shiny first. I can afford both, but it's just how she would perceive my priorities. Women are crazy.

I can always wait. Finding a Wii will only get easier as time passes...

Which means no shipping and thus no shipments.

But what I don't see is information for reserves. According to the Gamespot site I can still put in for that bundle, but the tracker makes no mention of it. It could at least list information for those sorts of things. In fact, it hasn't updated Gamespot information since the last bundle offer in March. If it's almost 2 weeks behind, it's kind of useless to me...

I never used the tracker. I just used the phone and the ol' car.

If it is just between these particular cameras, I'd do the Olympus Stylus 740 for image stabilization.

Edit: You may want to see what card it takes, is it an XD?

XD cards aren't all that bad as I have one for my Fuji FinePix, but they generally aren't on sale as much as SD cards. Plus, once you buy a large one, you should be fine...plus you have the petty one they give you.

just because it is 289 there doesn't mean I'm going to buy it for 289.
