Finally got a Wii!

I've been scouring numerous forums for a while to try to get info on when the latest Wii shipments will arrive, and the latest rumor is that a lot of places will be holding the Wiis that arrive until December 31. (http://www.ps3seeker.com/wii/ says this too) I didn't find this to be the case.

There were two toys that I've been thinking about getting for myself this Christmas, the Wii or the Helio Drift. Well this morning, I found out that the Helio drift doesn't provide an SDK and isn't open to third-party apps, so I decided to fuck that idea and remove that company from my radar.

I then decided to call around looking for a Wii. The first place was Target and they weren't very helpful. The second place I called was the Best Buy in Sunnyvale on El Camino, and they said they got a shipment this morning. I was pretty surprised at how easy it was and got in my car right away. When I arrived and bought mine, there were 5 remaining as of 10:30am this morning, but they're likely gone by now.

Other people on the shopping forums have been reporting finding Wiis at Targets today as well as Best Buy, so I'm not sure about the validity of the Dec. 31st rumor or the accuracy of WiiSeeker.
