Wii Inventory Tracker

Sick of looking for a Wii to buy your ingrate kids? Here’s a tracker that automatically checks websites for Wii availability. Best Buy is noticeably absent, but otherwise it seems comprehensive. —MEGHANN MARCO

    Last weekend, after several unsuccessful attempts to find one of these things in stock, I took a leap of faith and subscribed to Wii Finder (www.nintendofinder.com). For $6.50 (Paypal only), they promised to send an email update at any time, night or day, that one of the online sites they watch changed their Wii stock status. I heard nothing from them (other than a payment acknowledgement) through Thanksgiving weekend, Black Friday, Cyber Monday… maybe I’d been taken. $6.50 down the drain.

    At 6:29 EST today, I got my first alert – an email notice that Tech Depot (an arm of Office Depot) had changed its website. at 6:49, they sent a confirming notice. At 6:59, I went to the website and was able to place an order! We’ll see if I get a shipping confirmation later today, but it sure felt right. If this works, it’s well worth the money spent on the service – I’ve spent that much in gas already.

    Ah the Wii. If you can find one, and a copy of the new Zelda, you’re all set. I just can’t seem to find a compontent cable for it, so I get to watch in in 480i rather than 480p.

    I was extremely skeptical about nintendofinder.com, but subscribed anywas–it was only $6.50 and I had spent 2-3 hours over several days scouring the net for a Wii. I signed up on Saturday and, much to surprise, it actually worked! I received a note at 11:05 am that a Wii was available and had purchased it by 11:09 am this morning…

    BTW, you can use an ordinary credit card (not just PayPal) to sign up.

    I remain astonished.
