The Nintendo Wii game console is hard to find again this holiday shopping season but Wal-Mart is promising to unleash a flood of them at their online store at Walmart.com this coming Monday, December 8, 2008:
Nintendo Co Ltd’s Wii has emerged as one of the few hot products this holiday season, and Wal-Mart Stores Inc will offer "tens of thousands" of the hard-to-get video game consoles on its website starting on Monday.
Walmart.com said it will offer the Nintendo Wii console for $249.24, and a "value bundle," which includes the console and other items like an extra set of controllers, for $329, while supplies last.
As of Friday night, the Wii console was sold out on Walmart.com, bestbuy.com and circuitcity.com. Bestbuy.com listed the sold-out Wii for $249.99.
Walmart.com also said that it will offer, beginning on Monday, certain Wii video games at a price of two for $30, and certain accessories, like the Nintendo Wii Racing Wheel, starting under $10.
It may be rather tough on the walmart.com Web site, but if you need a Wii head on over to Walmart.com tomorrow and try to get through.
