Checking several Wii finder services and the online inventories of retailers, there is still no Wii console available at the standard price of $249. If the Wii is in stock then it is in an expensive bundle. 3rd party offers on Amazon and the eBay prices for the Wii are now under $400, which is a bit of an improvement over the Holiday season.
A Wii raincheck would be handy now, we actually advised against it back in December. Did you get one? If yes, please email me, if you got your $250 Wii on Friday. Update: I got some feedback of readers that got a Wii Raincheck and the deal was even much better than thought. Reader Jo N. got his Wii already 2 hours!! after he purchased the Raincheck at a GameStop store. Reader Ross D. got his on January 4th.
But maybe there will be new Wii stock available soon. Amazon in Germany states that new Wii consoles will be in stock on February 14th. This sounds like a reasonable time for Nintendo to replenish Wii inventory across the globe.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
