After reading this article in the NY Times, I decided I had better get a Wii sooner rather than later. Nintendo doesn't expect their inventory issues to get much better: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/12/business/12video.html?_r=1&oref=slogin So, I decided to bite the bullet and pay a premium on eBay. I just got the console, but I figure since that's the only piece that's hard to get, I would pay more for that and get all the add-ons at retail. The unit retails for $250 and I had to pay $325. It could have been worse. I can't wait for it to arrive, as my seller is shipping it today! Thanks to everyone who has posted previously about the Wii.
