If I come across one I'll get it for you, but please post here if you get sorted in the meantime - I wouldn't want to have to end up putting it on Ebay:oops:

I think some stores will attempt to put in a 1 per person policy, which will be difficult to police but will give some actual gamers a chance.

I checked out my local Asda, no luck. The only Tesco extra for 25 miles has a sign saying they will not be stocking Wii's.
Oh well.:(

That's very kind of you. My sister will not be phoning Asda till Fri morning and its a chance in a million if she gets lucky with the old Wii.

So if you manage to find one Thurs... then its a big :thumbsup: from me :)

Maybe what we need to set up is an AVF - I've found some Wii's club.

Myself and another AVF member who live local are both looking out for each other but maybe it would be good to have a list of people who agree to look out for each other and will try to get the other members Wii's (obviously after making sure they get one first).

I would guess that those of us still after one are not the Greedy ebay type anyway (I personally have never bought even 1 console to flog on ebay for an over inflated price - even though I could have on many occaisions).

The way I see it is that more than anything we all probably want one for Christmas (either for our children or so that we can have some fun at get togethers). To be honest, if I don't get one for Christmas then i'll just get one whenever I can just pick up a decent bundle or at least just pick one up off the shelf.

What do people think?

EDIT - I guess the way round 1 per person is to go to the shop with 2 or 3 people and then all buy separately. Obviously that's not always an option but i'm sure that my wife would come with me and I may even be able to pick up my parents on the way.

I think thats a great idea, Im having trouble obtaining a wii, I have already brought the games I want and a copy of wii play for the remote, but still have no wi and its annoying, I live in northfield on the outskirts of birmingham and dont drive so its virtually impossible for me to get to the supermarkets which seem to be getting a lot of stock, all i keep getting are false promises from stores like virgin, yeh we'll have some in tomorrow, so i get there for when it opens, sorry none in the delivery, will proberly be after christmas now, so was rather gutted and after hearing asda/tesco had quite a few in made me even more gutted because i cant get to them, so ii think your idea of people looking out for each other would be great.

Hi,

I'm in the same boat and I'm willing to keep an eye out for people. I was 6th in an Asda store that had 5 come in this morning and wasn't too impressed!

I'm in the Bristol area and would be grateful if people could do the same for me please.

Thanks.

Good stuff! I guess it's all about using the power of the internet to cover most of the country. Perhaps the OP of this thread could edit the original post and stick down the list of people who wish to look out for themselves and others along with the areas they can source from.

I'm in York so could get them from the likes of York, Harrogate, Selby, Leeds, Weatherby etc.

That'd be a great idea, as you can tell if you've read my post a bit further down, im having massive trouble obtaining a wii because i dont dont thus its hard for me to get to supermarkets, plus im a student so have uni lectures to attend aswell, so yeh I think we should get a list going.

I'd be in for this, I'll keep an eye out in Sheffield/Doncaster
Not being funny but maybe you should keep a closer eye on the forum. I posted last night and this morning to let all know that Cortonwood (just a few miles from Sheffield/Donc had 100 in this morning.
Maybe you were busy and couldn't get on the forum?

Anyone in the birmingham area, that could give me the head up if they hear of anywhere getting stock in, would be very appreciated.

Tesco Hatfield told me tonight when I popped in for a freeview box, that they did not get any in at all & I almost got the impression that they were not going to stock it at that branch :eek:

I was told exactly the same in the Tescos Hatfield store last night & that they weren't expecting any now until February. I then went into Comet next door the guy in there said February too but he'd heard Tesco's were expecting 50 in this week?

I'm beginning to give up, it's a wild goose chase around the St.Albans & surrounding area, I haven't heard of 1 single over the counter purchase, only pre-orders, of which I'm miles down the list at Currys.

I will keep my eye out in the MK area. Asda had 5 yesterday and they were not in before I went to a meeting so I was intending to shoot over there as soon as my meeting finished and wait but they had been in and gone by the time it finished. :mad:

I am off work as of the end of today so I will happily queue somewhere that has them. If I can persuade me misses to join in I can definately get two but any kind soul who gets a spare and wants to sell me one would be greatly appreciated :)

I have a feeling my recently placed Gameplay order may take some time to come through.

I have updated the original post. Names are down in order as people have asked to be added. I think its only fair that if anyone manages to get one to pass on... that we work down the list 'in order'.

Once one has been passed on to someone on the list, I will amend it accordingly.

Please can we try and keep this thread to those wanting/looking for and bought Nintendo Wii's. Makes it a lot easier for me to follow and update.

Thanks,

Gazza.
