So we wanted to get our kids a Wii for christmas. We knew that is what we wnated to do for months, but by the time I found out about the pre-orders they were already gone, and I "thought" that they would have an over abundance for the holidays, but I was shocked at the frenzie over it. I thought for sure I would have been able to get my hands on one but man it was just insane here in Tucson.
So I went home with my tail between my legs and thought I may just have to stocking stuffer a "made up" gift certificate for a Wii when we would be able to get our hands on one.
Well I jumped on Ebay just to see what the prices were, and surprisingly it was not totally out of hand compared to the ps3 or last years 360. So I found a Wii that interested me (there where about 1000 with one hour left) Put in my bid for what I was willing to pay max (you don't really want to know that) and I ended up with the Wii, an extra remote and free shipping for 375$. Personally I thought it was a good deal, I paid about 60 dollars more than retail. But I was trying to find another remote (yes a third one), and they are sold out everywhere, Looked on ebay and they are going for about 75 dollars. So I did the math and If I got the Wii for 250, a remote for 75, thats 325 plus I get free shipping....the numbers are getting closer to even in my eyes.
Any ways, now I have one, I am going to hook up the cables and then play it whenever the boys are at school!!
Let me know...ripped..or decent deal?
