    Just had a look around the t'internet and everywhere is sold out.

    If I go into town (Cambridge) is it likely anywhere will have stock? Or is stock pretty much non-existant?

    Please don't name any stores :) Just want an idea if its worth the trip.

    Can't say for sure, although when i went round Leicester, Coalville, and Ashby in one day, none were to be found!

    Always worth a trip, most of the big stores get small quantities weekly.

    Stock is out there, Nintendo have ramped production up to 1.8 million a month, problem is they are getting snapped up very, very quickly!

    It is just a case of trying ... i've seen a couple around Edinburgh over the last two weeks ... why not phone a few game stores - if they have any ask them to hold onto one for a few hours till you collect. That's how I managed to snag a 360 about 2 weeks after launch .. and luckily the first store I phoned had one left, which they held aside for me till I got down there :)

    I heard that at one supermarket near us, a customer picked up one of the empty Wii boxes from the shelves, put it in the trolley, went around doing the rest of their shopping and by the time they got to the checkout there was no Wii's left in stock lol.

    My mate is selling his - only played it twice.
    First night he got it, and then a few nights ago and realised what a pile it is.

    If you want, I can go fetch it from him tomorrow (going over there) and I can put it on the MM. Mint condition, includes the included games plus a zelda game of some description
