    You can get one for more than 3 times list price from various resellers. I'm content to wait as I'm sure there will be plenty soon enough.

    every time I go into a store I ask if they have received any more since the release date and only 1 store (Target) has received a 2nd shipment, and that was only one unit. I have been in Best Buy 3 times though and forgot to ask each & every time.

    just wondering where you got that info. called one of the GS here & they knew nothing about it. did mention that there's supposed to be a website that tracks the shipments to stores, but didn't know what website it was.

    I believe Cheapass gamer reported it, but I was up late last night.. it might have been another gaming reporting source. I'll see if I can find it again, honestly didn't pay too much attention to it (due to already having mine).

    I got mine at midnight the night they hit the shelves. Went to superwalmart at 11:30pm and just hung out. They had 6 of them in, there were 5 of us waiting. Had I realized the demand would be as much as it was I would have bought the last one and hocked it on ebay.

    It's pretty cool but some of the games are mehhh....

    so it does have extension cords for it. Most excellent, as from what I hear the controller cord length was the biggest issue

    The initial cord length is horrible..... poor planning on Nintendo's part.

    You would think they could've built in wireless technology like the other controllers and kept the design, and then just charged a little more. At only $60 bucks, they probably could have gone all the way up to $99 and people would still buy it, just about as much as they are now.

    I thought I would hate the corded controllers more than I do, but it feels right to have the cord while playing some of these games. I agree that wireless should have been built it... but there is something about having that cord there.

    actually it's perfect planning by Nintendo. How many extension cords do you think will be sold? very little had the original been long enough.

    Nintendo isn't the one selling the extensions.. which is why it is curious.

    Looks like they're learning from Apple. But is the extension patented and proprietary to help maximize profits?

    Was in Besy Buy Saturday, and as I have been for the last month at any place that sales them, asked if they had any in stock. The guy told me that they are doing a re-release on Dec. 20th. So apparently Best Buy, or at least the local Best Buy, has been holding their stock to sale this coming up Tuesday.
    I asked why would they do that, it makes no sense. All of the local Game Stops sale them as they come in, and as far as I know, all other retail outlets have as well. He didn't have an answer and just looked at me.

    This is either complete BS, or the guy didn't really know what he was talking about.

    Anyone else heard this? ..... I know dougie, you already got yours :tongue:

    I had heard that best buy was supposed to get a big shipment of them this week, don't know if the 20th was the date it was suppose to happen. But it was posted on a couple of gamer sites.
