    Nintendo Wii????
    Ok, so naturally we couldn't find any nintendo wii's at Christmas time for our soon to be 8 year old, but I wasn't too worried because I knew his birthday was coming up and just KNEW that they would be back in stock by then. Well, his birthday is Saturday and I cannot find a single Wii in all of Las Vegas!!! Anyone have any suggestions??? They aren't even available to order online yet!!! I even called a store in Reno tonight to see if they had any LOL Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Pawn shops may already have them. Just make sure you get a manual with it. Just a suggestion.

    We got one for the office at Electronics Boutique in the mall. We called and asked them if they had any, they said they expected to get a shipment in the next couple of hours. So someone went down and got a number and shopped while they waited for the shipment to come in.

    You might want to search eBay (locally) or Craigslist. Most of the time the people selling these are trying to make a huge cut on them. Possibly you could find a seller here or there not trying to make a mortgage payment from just one sale.

    As far as I can tell, the GameStop one is a pre-order.

    Yep, put it there as an option although handing an 8 year old a receipt and saying they have to wait until the 15th is kind of mean... lol

    Alec probably would get a kick out of it, and have his mom up at 6 am that day to be there exactly when the store opened

    Thanks everyone! The Gamestop pre-order is my backup plan but I'm currently bidding on one on Ebay that they don't want a million dollars for unless you did the Buy It Now and they've already told me they will overnight it today :-) Now if some moron will stop outbidding me since the guy has like another 15 systems on there that are all ending today! I thought I was actually going to get it for $9 since there's no reserve LOL

    Consider this as you will, but I think you might be better off just limiting your eBay search to the LV area. That way you don't have to deal with a transport snafu or a seller who says they will overnight and then they get it there by Tuesday instead.

    Make sure it is overnight delivery for Saturday Delivery. If it's just standard overnight, you won't get it till Monday. Good luck!

    Hey Liz,

    I was at gamestop here in NY buying a game for my nephew, they had some wii's in stock.

    I remembered this post, so i asked if any in LV had some - there is 1 available at a game stop in station plaza - i don't know where that is but i'm sure you can google it.
    Better run!

    Thanks so much to everyone that has offered their suggestions! A very special thanks goes to BuyJewelry! That is probably the only game stop that I hadn't called in the last 24 hours and they did indeed have one left!!! They were very kind to hold it for the hour it took me to get out there since it is rush hour here in Vegas. Let me know if you're coming out for Summit because I owe you a drink! LOL Thanks again everyone!
