I called toys r us today (New Jersey) only to talk and ask if preorders were starting tomorrow they said yes.... I told them that I didn't want to wait outside and asked them if they would be interested in 'setting one aside for me' if i paid them a little monetary bonus ($20 dollars)... Long story short, he agreed, I met him at the store, paid him and yada yada yada, gonna sell it on ebay. Video games are for chumps anyways.

Lesson learned here folks, money is everything....

Only a fool would pay that much for a $250 system

I heard that there would be no short supply like the 360 and the PS3.

Exactly :) I can see you making a loss on it, and will be surprised if anyone looks to eBay to buy a Wii. :whistle:

I'll be camping outside a Best Buy for a long time to get one. I really want one at launch :)

Hahaha, what a waste of $20. You could have gone in tomorrow and pre-ordered one without paying more.

So you paid extra for something that's going to be readily available in the coming months? Way to go!!!!! (Y) :rolleyes:

The sad part is, you're going to find a buyer who knew even less than you about the launch.

It is predicted that the wii will not have the same sales issues as the 360. There is supposedly enough units to fulfill demand and possibly a slightly lesser demand.

You paid $20 for something that would have cost you less in 24 hours time!

You expect people to pay $500 for a $250 console - you're dreaming.

"money is everything"? Really? To you possibly, but I have a much more fulfilling life.

Lesson learned - a fool and his money are soon parted!

Could've worked with the PS3, or the X360 when it launched. With the Wii, not so much.

You'll be lucky to get much more than retail price for the Wii. If you think you're going to get $450 plus then you'll be disappointed.

The very fact you took time to post this makes you seem as if you are 12 years old.

That's assuming he actually gets the Wii.

Considering the number of units Nintendo is going to dedicate to NA, you might be learning a lesson.

i hope everyone who wants one gets one, and your stuck with a Wii.. people like you make me sick, you buy systems ONLY to sell it for profit on ebay. Things like this, is why the world is going down hill, and kids won't get their christmas present without their parents paying out the ass.
