Admittedly, it's absurd we're doing a post like this a year and a half after launch, but there's going to be a big Wii shipment at Toys R Us
this Sunday. Just in case Wii Fit does cause another sustained Wii shortage
, if you're planning on getting the console in the next six months, it's best to get one while the gettin' is good.
To guarantee a Wii this Sunday at Toys R Us, customers need to stop by their local store and put down a $200 deposit. The five stores we called were accepting pre-orders for about 50 systems. Meanwhile, two of the stores asked why we wanted the pre-order details when they have them in stock?
