For those of you who still haven't managed to bag a Wii of your own there's another way to help hunt them down. Wii.FindNearBy.net
is a site where you can simply plug in your Zip code, and it lists the locations of major retail outlets, projected (read: rumored) ship dates, as well as listings at online auction sites. The site updates every couple of minutes so new information is available pretty quick.
There's also PS3.FindNearBy.net
, which works the same way. But honestly at this point, you should simply be able to stand in any parking lot near major retailers and say "I'd like a PS3", and half a dozen or so salespeople will trip over each other to sell you one. For example, here in Columbus, I know there are between 40-50 that are available for sale this very minute in a 1 square mile area near my work on Polaris Parkway.
