Still Looking For a Wii? Costco's Got a Stash.
The only catch is that Costco are selling them as a bundle. At a price tag of $344.99 you get the basic Wii, extra nunchuck, extra wiimote, and a copy of Big Brain Academy.
In light of recent eBay gouging of the little white bugger and downright exploitation of the consumer due to Nintendo’s inability to meet the holiday demand, this seems like a good deal. Perhaps it’s not the most ideal price range to be in, considering the competition is only a few bills away. Still, are least you have the comfort of knowing that you aren’t getting bent over when making this particular purchase.
Who knows how long the supply will last? As with many Wii spottings, once word gets out, they quickly become myth again. I just hope these poor little Wiis don’t end on eBay with a $400+ ‘Buy It Now’ slapped on their mugs.
Also, whatever happened to Nintendo’s threat of don’t bundle the Wii or else? Idle threats, indeed.
