Gamestop/EB sells Wii for low price of $549.92

Gamestop's Chief Operating Officer Dan DeMatteo is so mad about the Wii shortage that he's gonna show Nintendo ... he's gonna show them by charging customers who want a Wii $549.92 for a bundle. Gamestop and EB games will send you a Wii for that price starting April 23. For all the contents in the bundle, it's not really a bad deal -- you know, if you ignore the whole legal issue. Oh, there will also be an additional $9.99 shipping charge due to the "unusual size and weight" of the bundle.

How desperate EB is towards the all mighty dollar. Nintendo can't make enough for what EB demands for profit so now they (EB) will tax poor old gamer for some more pocket liner... dang EB.. dang

I even posted news, that the Wii shortage is intensional, so that it would create the "hype"

2 simple words:
Not interesting.

The shortage is still going on? Consumers should just come to Canada if they need one :)

The shortage is intentional.

As my left ball because my right one is just not interested. Who would actually pay that much for a Wii? $50 more and I get a PS3. The wii suppost to be cheap and fun. Paying anywhere near a 360 or PS3 is just not right.

zantetsuken4265d ago

Believe it or not, there's people on craigslist trading a 60 GB ps3 with 4 games for a used wii and no games. It's just absurd.

I believe you. It's just dumb and a waste of money. I would just wait 1-2 months.. eventually it will be available at your local retail store for standard price. Not worth burning money like that.
