You know it amazes me how stroes just can't sell PS3s now yet everyone wants the Wii.
I guess it's safe to say who won this battle

The demand is really high but the supply is really low.
Amazingly, they didn't raise the price. (Normally, you would in that situation, right?)
In LJ, everyone is talking about the Wii, just a little about Xbox 360, and almost none about PS3.
Yep, I think Wii is a winner. Plus I downloaded Super Mario Bros.! Yay! :-)

Regarding the idea of increasing the price.
Word is that Nintendo had originally planned to charge $199 for the system but the Big Box stores whined that people wouldn't buy anything else, so they pushed Nintendo to up the price.
As such, it should drop in price around March-April when demand lowers a little. :)

Wow, I can't believe you still have lines like that. Here in Denver, it's just a matter of walk in the store and pick one up. Target is good about getting some in on Tuesday or Thursdays.. and Circuit City just sold their last few hear..crazy.. I still can't believe how hard I guess it is to find one! Congrats though!

It's really rare around here. Thanks to a tip from one of the clerks at BestBuy a few days prior. I was told to try Sunday and line up. Sure enough, I was lucky!
Upon hearing people on the line, they were saying they have BestBuy gift cards. It looks like everyone had gift cards that day.
Congrats to you, too, since you got one. :-)
