    Does anyone know of a place to find Wii shipment dates within Canada? They are selling like hotcakes up here!

    If its anything like the states stores will horde them for some major promotion the following sunday.
    Ive seen stores like bestbuy and target always place them out on sunday/tuesday to take advantage of new releases and "sale" items

    I've been at it over 2 weeks and best I can say is, show up every day. BB and Target at open and the rest between 12-2 when UPS shows up.

    Its all pure luck right now, but I think they should start having some shelflife by the end of Jan.

    Lazaredz, do you have Toys R Us' in your area? They usually get the most shipments. Black Friday they got 100 wii's while other stores got like 20-30 max.

    well jake, I asked those question, but I'm in Montreal.

    At gamebuzz, they told me that they should have shipments mid-january. Though the first shipments will probably by the "camp-to-get-a-console" kind of sale.

    The guy told me that it will be easier to get them in february or even march.

    But if you are persistent, you can find one soon I guess.

    Yeah, I checked around back in Phx while I was visiting the folks. I'm in D.C. for a couple of days and then back to Fredericksburg VA on the 5th. I plan on being at Target in Fred at 0800 for opening tomorrow.

    /keeps fingers crossed.

    Bah, I was at blockbuster last night returning some movies and a guy walked out with a wii as I was walking in. I guess they got two in that day without warning.

    Future shop dosent know when their next shipment is comming, Best Buy dosent answer the phone and EB games is impossible.

    Im gonna call Toys R Us tonight, thanks for the tip Reaver.

    NP

    They're supposed to be launch partners with the big N, so I would assume they'd receive a steady flow of units.
