Grannies + grandpas + aunts + uncles + dads + moms + cousins + nieces + nephews + brothers + sisters - PS3 loyalists - 360 loyalists - current Wii owners = a lot of ppl still currently wanting a Wii.

Why would someone pay 360$ prices for a Wii? I would rather have a 360 core and play Halo 3.

When parents can't find a Wii in a store they go Ebay.

The Wii/DS Lite/iPod are big B'day presents this yr.

EB is selling bundles now in the $400-500 ranges and they are still selling out.
