I waited 6 hours for mine. Brought a friend with me too. The way I see it, I spent 6 hours waiting in line, and I've spent well over 80 so far actually playing it. I'll spend countless more hours on top of that before the console becomes plentiful enough to obtain easily. Totally worth it.

One word: Target. Every one I've been to in my area has had at least a dozen copies for both Wii and Gamecube in stock.

Weird, stores around here have plenty of games in stock, it's just consoles and accessories that you can't find.

Here's the problem, Sony is losing money on the hardware and trying to make it back on games. Nintendo is making money on the hardware and trying to make money on games.

Even if Sony is selling out every PS3 and making some money back, in the end if the games don't rock the box then it's just not going to work for Sony. Nintendo has the easy street though, making money in all markets on the hardware is huge, and with sales of the Wii going strong, Nintendo is surely happy with it's popularity thus far.

Nintendo has ALWAYS made a profit. Say what you will about Nintendo but at the end of the day they sure know what it takes to rake in the cash!

I would make the investment and get the Wii. The Wii can actually play gamecube games, but you are going to have loads of great future titles for the Wii so it's that much better.
