    DS would dearly love a Wii for his birthday (at begining of Dec.) we have been looking for ages but no where seems to have any, we have been checking websites for companies like John Lewis Daily but no luck. Does anyone know of any shops or online companies we can try. Thanks

    Try GAME. They had some here in the store in Bristol.

    Or if your really stuck, you could always get one from eBay. That's where I got mine from.

    We got ours from Game Station, the only place around here that seems have them more than the other shops. Just ring them all up and give em your number so when 1 comes in you can be there in a flash :)

    Probably one of the best consoles I've had, kids love it as well LOL

    Virgin megastore online definately had some yesterday afternoon as i was about to buy one and then changed my mind. I'm sure it was £179 inc game and controller. You might want to check out the moneysavingexpert website as they have quite an up to date thread going.

    I read in the paper due to there being a lack of stock, Amazon & Play have wacked the price of the consoles up as they know that demand is going to be high don't know how true this is, but if you can get it at Virgin for normal price I would snap it up.

    I work in Sainsburys and we have had to make a waiting list up, something our company never does.

    I want one but i'm not really in a rush, i'll wait until we get them in at work so I can get my 10% discount.

    I managed to get one in the last couple of days by checking wii-consoles.co.uk, they have regular stock updates on several online stores - warning though, I ordered from dixons online and went right thru credit card info and even got acknowledgement email from them, then the next day email saying no stock. I eventually got one from Game and hopefully it will be delivered tomorrow or Tuesday! I'm shopping early for kids Christmas stuff!

    Just recieved an email from Virgin saying that they had a glitch on website and did not actually have anystock and will not be recieving my order - I sent back a very strong reply as the money has been taken from account but no Wii. Hope no one else is disappointed,

    Oh no, that's what dixons did to me. Keep trying that wii-consoles site, it seems game and a few others keeps getting stock for a few minutes at intervals throughout the day. I now know 5 people who need a wii ( Ha DD keeps saying that!) so I'm checking often.

    Good luck!
