well just got word , sony is undershipping. Instead of 16 units we are getting 8. Other stores got cut worse . One store when from 18 to 8 and other is now only getting 2 units launch day.
Calls are going out today/ tommorow with the stores affected which are most of them.
Also a New Jersey Gamestop Manager was fired for voicing displeasure with sony and thier practices with the local Paper "The Record" .
Ouch. Well, it's still black and sexy right? Right guys? Guys...? *Crickets chirping*
"Like the moon over the day, my genius and brawn are lost on these fools. ~haiku" Bowser, Super Mario RPGPSN ID= "Hrama". Add me!Do not feed your Wii chicken after midnight, nor get it wet. Doing so will cause a bad 80s plot to unveil itself, and a cuter, fuzzier Wii will have to kill it.
Sears(mine) hasn't even been informed of whether or not they are getting 1 console, let alone 5-10!
(at least thats what they claim)
Fry's is "not allowed to comment on the number of units available," but are only selling $1000 bundles, allegedly.
Wal-mart said they were getting 10, but the guy was an idiot and I didn't believe anything he said.
I think I am going to camp out at CompUSA
I will get numbers from stores the day before and make my final decision(of where to camp)
Yeah I heard this today aswell. I was at gamestop playing the wii when I heard the info. The one here is apparently getting only 60% of the pre-orders. 2nd shipment is supposed to be in before Christmas though.
I heard though that walmarts are supposed to get 10.
second shipment was supposed to be smaller
With wii we are getting even more units . Some stores went from 50 units up to 150 units .
This "low supply to artificially raise demand" thing is getting old.
It's PS2 and Xbox 360 all over again.
Yep, I guess I can't chalk this one up to intention. I mean, why else would the launch be delayed in European territories?
Then it looks like sony wont be meeting the 400k??
That or they decided to screw gamestop/ebs (gauranteed sales) and instead put the units in other stores? I mean sony is the one that gave gamestop/eb the numbers for pre-orders.
This is gonna suck for alot of people. Luckily Im not one of them.

I also can't say I didn't expect this. I was pretty sure it would happen. Makes me happy to have ordered a Wii.
thsi is the article the guy got fired for. He stated there may be as few as 200k. Which is a 100k less than I heard. But whatever. He was fired yesterday because of this
not supposed to give out numbers
total numbers or number available at the store.....?not supposed to give out numbers
I don't understand why a store representative can't tell customers how many units they are getting.
Supposed to be a safety issue or something. My gamestop is no longer having a midnight opening for PS3 because they dont want anyone getting mugged or anything.
