I know this has been done before but I didn't look at the threads because I wasn't looking for one, but now my mum wants to buy a Wii hmm so just wondering if anyone knows where you can get them from at the moment?

TIA!

No idea. My mum wanted to get me one blush but they are rarer than rocking horse poo. Amazon in Germany won't deliver to the UK anymore either.

Good luck!

argos in fact if she wants one let me know and i'll see what i can do my step mm works they and they seem to have loads

There is a wii stock checking website hopefully someone will pass on the link as that seems to be the best way to get one.

on the argos site it says 'item cannot be reserved for store pickup' sigh

Phone your local store(s) instead

dont be fobbed off makee friends with the staff and ask them to reserve it for you

my step mum has had 5 in the last 3 weeks for me and various friends

www.wii-consoles.co.uk/ is the place to check. DP resevred one from Argos last christmas and went he went to pick it up it they hadn't reserved it or more likely one of the staff members decided to buy it!

I went into the store, and the lady at the till reserved it for me smile

Comet had some yesterday

salsmum Mon 26-Nov-07 13:22:23

fuckedy fuck angry

LydiaTheTattooedLapin Mon 26-Nov-07 13:46:50

salsmum, £295 isn't that bad - mine was £180 and only comes with one game, and I think the games are around £30-40 each

Thanks for your help guys

lydia,
It came yestoday smile.
the receipt was in parcel [argos £179.99]
the 5 games that i was told were included was in fact the sports game with 5 games on it shock it was purchased on 21/nov which makes me wonder if it was a person working for argos that sold it hmm....good money maker!
BUT...Main thing is i have it so no tears on xmas day from my 23year old son! LOL.

OMG - I can't believe you paid £295 for the basic package!! shock

You can't reserve any from Argos at the moment but the check and reserve service tells you if any are in stock so you can whizz down there.

I'm getting desperate sad

The wii stock checker site is showing that some are in stock at places like Dixons but they are horrendously priced bundles
