Continuing from my last entry on Wii Fit. After camping the ToysRUs site for that one Wii Fit they were selling every hour yesterday, I finally managed to get one. After a brief celebration, they emailed me several hours later and said it was backordered. WTF. Then why the hell were you playing that stupid stupid 1-Wii Fit-every-hour game and wasting people’s time? Urgh. That’s just false advertisement/scamming. And I had already opened my copy up ’cause I thought it was finally settled.
Well, this morning, while checking the Wii Fit tracker I noticed that Amazon had it for sale. Ordered one immediately then called my friend who then ordered one. Canceled mine after that (as well as the stupid ToysRUs order) once I got confirmation from my friend. It’s actually cheaper than ToysRUs and doesn’t seem to have that stupid 2-3 day processing time too. Though it looks like the one sold on Amazon is actually being sold by Target, which is also selling a Wii+Wii Fit+Wii Wheel+Sports Pack+rechargeable batteries bundle for $400, which is kinda decent, except for the Sports Pack (and the wheel’s useless if you don’t get Mario Kart).
My friend ended up getting Wii Fit through Craigslist this morning after making the order though. Craigslist prices actually aren’t that bad either. The lack of shipping and sales tax makes the lower-end prices comparable to ordering it online. Gamestop/EB Games preorders should also be released pretty soon if people are still looking for it.
Anyway, since the Amazon/Target deal couldn’t be canceled, my friend will have an extra copy, which you may find for relatively cheap next week on Craigslist. :P
