    So did anyone get a hold of one? Amazon had 100 Wiis that were gonna go up between 3-4PM an they went in 5 seconds :shock: OH was on there on teh second & didn't get one :shock:

    The prices on eBay are madness FFs why don't they just buy something else with their pennies & the Wii would be an extra surprise when they are back in stock? :roll:

    I dont think anyone has got one tbh unless there are silly enough to pay ebay prices of stand in the queue outside HMV that formed over the last few days.

    I'm just going to wait a few months when there is an abundanece of them and the price is lowered :lol:

    O! O! O! I gto a PS3 last Friday, the good one (60MG). WOOT! WOOT!. My fiances sister and I called hundreds of stores, and we finally got one guy at a small store to tellus when the shipment was coming in. Well that morning she went to Best Buy, just incase they got a shipment in, And they had only 5 of the systems and she got one. Our Best Buy was only 1 of 2 in the whole entire state to get them. We totally lucked out!

    Stephanie,



    Have you bought an import?

    The PS3 isn't available in the Uk until March at the earliest.

    Can I ask how much you paid?

    I can't wait until the PS3 is available at a normal price, only problem I have is the need for an XBOX360 as well, I like some games which are only available on each platform!!! :cry: :cry: :cry:

    I think the Wii looks ok, a bit of fun but not my cup of tea.

    Tam would like one I think, she really likes the Nintendo games like Mario!

    I bought her the Game cube a couple of Xmas's ago! but she hasn't played it in ages!

    A Wii is the New Nintendo Game system where the handset has an accelerometer on it which allows you to use it like a golf club or a boxing glove etc.

    There's quite a smart advert about a sports game on the Wii on the tele over the last week or so!

    I won't get the PS3 until it's a normal price.

    I think Sony are pushing with that kind of price when they're competing against XBox etc.

    I love Sony bits, really kewl and reliable but.....too expensive.

    As for Jades dancemat, it's news to me!!! maybe it's a chrimbo pressie which Tam's not tellin me she's bought!!!

    :evil:

    nintendo WII looks cool, we tried to order one but didnt get it, i heard some crap about ps3 being blueray only and if thats the case think they will have problems if its not compatible with other tpes of disks as blue ray players are way too pricey

    but ive never been much of a fan of playstation. bring back sega any day :lol:
