    No but you constantly state how you went to [insert store] and they had none.

    Seriously? How stupid do you think people are?

    Mom and Dad--who aren't gamers, nor do they care--would have no idea where to look, and probably have never been to EB or GameStop. They wouldn't know a Wii from a Thaay until the salesdweeb pointed it out, and even then they wouldn't understand him. Geoffrey's place is probably the only toy store they know.

    Quick! Name all the places in your area where I can get a PRS with coil-tap pots?

    way off base ... as usual


    way off base ... as usual

    it doesn't matter that you don't care where they are
    some people might

    someone, somewhere let someone know where they were
    and someone that didn't have one got one that they wouldn't have

    there weren't supposed to be any Wii's available until after the new year

    Do Mummy and Daddy Avvie surf the web? or use GoTitans where they can get Pucks oh so wonderful advice?

    Right they don't. But I assumed people who are smart enough to go on GoTitans and post are smart enough to know what a Wii is, where to get one. And if not then they sure as hell should be smart enough to be able to use google to help.

    It isn't rocket science.

    Quick, tell me that amazon is out of stock because that would be really helpful. :rolleyes:

    And I wouldn't have a clue, but gee look at this. I googled it and found some. So simple too.

    I didn't have to join a guitar forum or anything. I simply googled it and found a phone number and a store. Boy that was difficult. I should have come here and waited for a random post telling me what nation wide business sells them. :rolleyes:

    Need I go on? :rolleyes:

    Yeah...you should know, actually saying it, doesn't make it true. Just like me saying I am God, it doesn't make it true.

    someone, somewhere let someone know where they were
    and someone that didn't have one got one that they wouldn't have[/quote]

    You just assume people are too stupid to use google or to ring up and find out or pre-order.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't Best Buy a nation wide business? Saying Best Buy had several dozen is about as useful as saying there are planes flying.

    You love pointing out how the Wii is selling more, how it is sold out, how everyone you know enjoys it bla bla bla.


    ahh you're doing it again.

    Gunny, right as usual, is out.

    Again, you're making an erroneous assumption that all people have computers and are tech-savvy. The great fact is that a great many don't....or if they do, they're quite outdated or reliant upon dial-up, often without a permanent cord. A goodly percentage of households have computers; I would imagine that it's far less that work or actually get used. probably has something to do with people buying Windows machines "because they're cheaper". If it were the only choice, I wouldn't exist online.

    Well it's a fair assumption since it was POSTED on a web forum don't you think?

    It is completely irrelevant to Puck telling everyone how many Wii's were at the local Circuit City or Amazon selling them out in 17 seconds.

    Maybe so, and I got no dog in that fight. But when you offer up thhe generalized question "Do you really think people are that stupid?", then I offer that the answer is a resounding "YES!" in spite of it's rhetorical intention.
