Learn a lesson from the Wii

I just recently (finally) upgraded to a Wii. Only had to pay about $50 over retail on an auction site to get it. Good luck trying to find one in the LA area, most stores told me it would be April before they had more. Try finding accessories once you have one too. Had to hit a half a dozen stores before I found additional controllers. It's not that nobody carries them, it's because they fly off the shelves as soon as they come in.
