A Princeton, NJ Best Buy is adding to the Wii hype. Buyers beware!
Just trying to get people to run in their stores and knock the old ladies over btw thats 2 points if you do that. 1000 points if you knock their bingo chips out of their hands.
Btw this is not surprizing its just to sell them quicker its business sense even though they are lieing.
Those are some pretty shady business practices going on there. Just put the darn things in the display case and announce that you have some. I don't think that they need help selling themselves.
They should have done that when Virtual Boys were in stores years ago... :P
The Wii [ps3 and 360] are nicely stocked ready to be sold ;o
EDIT: Meh. Should mention that while it may be stocked they won't put up anymore and just say "Sold out" ;o
Face it, all of these big businesses are evil.
Best Buy, Circuit City, Wal-Mart, Target, Gamestop, et cetera..
All just in it for the money and don't care about the customer one bit.
But that's business, eh?
they are never getting any more of my money , let me tell a quick story why, the other day i walked in there and bought call of duty 4, few days ago, i asked when assassins creed and super mario galaxy come out? he tells me the 13th, today actually, he said well you can preorder them and pick them up on the 12th which was last night, i tried to go in there and pick them up, lo and behold the guy wasn't there who told me this , so i asked the girl there if the games come in , and she said they wouldn't be here until tomorrow, the 13th, so i said screw it and got my money back for preorder and i am never shopping there again, and i buy tons of games, just had to get that off my chest , feel better now =)
That's quite a serious allegation. Good thing we can always trust and believe the word of "Joe Schmoe" the reliable...</sarcasm>
They could have my Wii if I hadnt already given it away. Wii Sux
Yeah. Sure. Whatever. :P
Who wants my Wii? I just want more money for it than Gamestop will give me.
It's not like gamers want it. News 4 gamers > News 4 casuals. ;)
sure.. keep thinking that...
same in uk toys r us sales person said they can,t sell the stock they have until say so
Actually, I don't know exactly what this guy is talking about, but something similar happens where I work, but it's all legit.
Basically, when we get a Wii shipment, they sell quickly till the last one is left, then the announcer announces it. When we run out, we get another shipment in a few hours later and then do it again. So basically you hear the "last wii" announcement every 2-3 hours or so.
Nothing wrong with it. Plus, we could just get ALL the wiis and set them up and they would still sell. People keep buying like 3 at a time. It's INSANE!
Like when your going to buy something matress/sofa/ect... they will pull the "it was made here, keep the money in this city" stunt.
This hypes the wii
When people want to buy something and the retailers tell them "you know what this is our last system we don't know when were getting another one" then people fell for it and buy it.
People are suckers
