Doesn't look like he's making money, the system is 199 with the controller, plus he has 5 games (if he's not including Wii Sports at $50 a pop)

$199 for the system + $250 in games = $449

Even if he's including Wii Sports, take out $50 and you're still at $399.

The seller may want to list the games though, it would probably help...

The Wii is $249 in stores and comes with controller and nunchuck. It also comes with one disk that has the five sports games on it!

My guess is Wii Sports = 5 games. Other folks have pulled this on eBay, claiming they have a Wii with 15 games or somesuch and it ends up being 3 copies of Wii Sports. They end up selling the thing for hundreds more than it's worth.

If it comes in one case and has one disc then it's one game with 5 sub-games. *shrug*

Didn't know people were pulling this garbage...I really hope that's not the case with this thread and there really are at a minimum, four distinct discs.

I preordered mine and got it at launch last November, I am in shock that they are still in such short supply...

People on ebay pull that all the time!! Hopefully the seller here is not trying to pull that, because as you can see...............many people here are too smart for that!!

The Wii's are still at a premium and fairly hard to come by. There was a guy this morning on the radio that was offered $500 for his wii and he refused, said he wouldn't sell it for anything under $700!!! My point is that this guys price is not too far base for somebody that really wants one! I do not agree with saying 5 games, unless it is really 5 seperate games!!!

...or, you can do what not very many people seem to know about and show up at Best Buy on a Sunday morning to pick one up at a normal price. Any shipments for store stock will arrive then and if nobody else is doing the same thing then you're home free.

It's disappointing to me that there are people out there willing to rip people off, but on the other side of the coin there are people willing to be ripped off. It's a dirty cycle. Oh well.

Local Best Buy stores here have a line that starts forming around 12am every Sunday morning to get a ticket to bring back to the store on Sunday when the store opens so they are actually sold out even it you show up a little before opening. It's insane but there is enough demand and each store only gets around 10 units per week. I hear that the best place to try to pick up a Wii is Target, just show up a couple hours before opening. They don't hand out tickets like Best Buy and I hear they have been getting 20 units per week.

I was at office depot a couple of weeks ago and there were several on the shelves. My kids thought the WII was stupid so I didn't buy it for them. They wanted PSP, so I got them each the PSP with Dexter package. That was out of stock everywhere too but a little research and found tons of them. The reason why people can't find them is because they go to best buy or circuit city or game stores. They don't even look at stores like office depot or office max. Either way, if you really want one, I'm sure you can find it. It just takes getting up early to find one.

Sorry for going off topic. Bump for your sale. Good luck.
