Like most of the nation I'm after a Nintendo Wii this Christmas, I was just wondering if any of you have seen any for sale in the SE1 area, or there abouts, and yes I know I'm a fool for leaving it so late but I have been uming and ahing about it.
Chances are by the time you find out they will have gone!
http://www.wii-consoles.co.uk/ tracks stock on various websites. Sadly it seems a lot of retailers will be forcing people to buy overpriced bundle deals - a way of making you buy games and accessories you probably won't want!
Try European web sites - the licensing and TV output type is the same as in the UK (unlike Wiis from the USA) and you'll be able to alter the language on the system to English quite easily during the set-up process. All you'll need is a 2-pin plug to 3-pin plug adapter. Best to do a bit of your own research in this area though.
amazon.de will ship to the UK & I've heard of various people who have sucessfully ordered Wii's from them for delivery over here - they are still selling at EUR 250 for the basic Wii + sports. If you buy two and sell one on Ebay then you'll easily make up the extra shipping costs :-)
I had a hell of a time getting one last Christmas. I ended up buying it on ebay for about £150 which included postage and packaging. Really worth doing as it was impossible to get one any other way. Although I heard that Argos have them in stock.
