    Every time I hear about the Wii-U, that's the ONLY that comes to mind!

    Yeah, love the way that Nintendo generates artificial hype for their products by releasing near xmas and then ensuring there is a shortage. Neither my wife nor I are the type that will go to any length at all to get something. That's why we looked this week, because we assumed that come Friday and the shopping frenzy that people will be at the stores buying up whatever they can get their hands on. Its funny because if you go to BestBuy.com or Amazon.com or talk to anybody at Gamestop...they are all out of them and having waiting lists with hundreds of people in line. On Amazon.com they are selling for nearly $600 instead of the retail price of $350. But yet you can walk into Target or WalMart and just pick 'em up. Wife and I went to a couple of Targets and they were sold out of the Wii-U Deluxe...but had the 8GB basic units. I went to Walmart and they had 3 of the Deluxes in the cabinet.

    Reminds me of people who wait hours in line for a cheap tank of gas. I guess if you have no money, and lots of time, but my free time is worth more then that. A Guy

    Will not be more productive to find a job instead, so you can buy what you want when you want

    That sounds just like my hubby, I'll often get vouchers for money off petrol but they usually run out of the date and he's not used them. He will not drive the 6 miles to fill up at the station that takes them just to get it cheaper if he's not got to go that way, he says they've usually got a queue and he will not wait. He's got plenty of time that's not a problem, but he'd much rather be playing solitaire on his computer or doing his crosswords than waiting in a queue for petrol.
