    What are the odds?

    Or source one second hand on the cheap since everyone seems to not be using them much anymore.

    I personally think they are a bit of a 1 trick pony. I have just sold mine!

    Well then to answer your original question, no, there won't be shortages.

    Somehow I doubt it. I have a funny feeling it will be the PS3 slim stealing the thunder this year.

    Not really Elite for £199 with COD MW2 Fifa 10 PS3 is still more expensive than a 360

    In the past Nintendo had just been lazy at making the Wiis. They then said they were running out of stock so everyone panic bought a wii in time for Christmas. I dont think the hype surrounding it is as big as has been in the past now.

    Regardless anyone who wants those games more than likely already have a console.

    This year I doubt any of the consoles are going to sell well, due to the fact that the economy is a mess and apart from the Slim & Go (too expensive) there's been nothing new arriving this year for any of them to attract new gamers.

    Where as in Japan I'd be surprised if Sony didn't have a great Christmas (Slim/Go/FF).

    Think the fad of Wii being this all in one healthy weight loss, family games console has now started to pass.....

    the gimmick as worn off, and a would think the rush to get one is well over. Loads bought one, I bet most hardly get used now.

    Wii fit has to be the most expensive set of electronic scales ever.... I don't need a games console to tell me I need to 'actually get out' and do a real run, or go swimming etc...

    Was planning to sell mine of Ebay nearer Christmas. Mother says it's not wise though. I can't exactly fault it however, I've had it well, since 2006 and nothing has gone wrong with it. I just do not use it. I think the people selling are going to be best off, not the buyers. So yeah, if you see a Wii at a good price (<£179.99 odd) then go for it I say.

    Cheap enough, if 'value for money' isn't a phrase you hold dear.
