Walmart.com to be Flush with Wiis Monday

This holiday season follows suit with last years as the Nintendo Wii continues to be one of the most sought after gifts. Wal-Mart Stores Inc has announced it will offer "tens of thousands" of the consoles and packages via its website starting on Monday according to Reuters.

  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.

Since its debut of the Wii gaming console, Nintendo Co Ltd has been hard pressed to increase production enough in order for supply to be in check with demand. Due to reduced availability stores often package the console in much higher (than the basic console) priced "bundles" that include games and other accessories.
    
On Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving which marks the start of holiday shopping, the Wii was the most searched-for product on the Yahoo Shopping site. It was also the most popular product on eBay, with 3,171 of the consoles selling for an average price of $349 that day.
 
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.

According to Walmart.com spokesman Ravi Jariwala the online retailer had worked with Nintendo throughout the year to maintain its inventory level of the Wii.

By the time you will be able to find one it will be outdated.
