Everyone knows the the PS3 sucks, but the Wii is all hype!!
What i really dont understand is why everyone is going crazy over a outdated system just because it has different controllers. "its obvious over hyped" as seen here.
A chain of retail gaming stores caught with hand in cookie jar, directly selling Wiis on Ebay for higher margins.
According to Ars Technica, Slackers of Illinois/Missouri are taking retail Wiis and dumping them on Ebay for $399, $150 above the MSRP.
When confronted with the breech of contract with Nintendo, a Slackers representative begrudgingly said, "That is something you'll have to speak with the owner about." Management has not responded.
Retailers have unfairly, though legally, used bundle gouging to nickel and dime gamers seeking Wiis in short supply. This is the first report, however, of retailers bypassing retail to become online resellers which yield better returns.
"We don't have to remind retailers of the strength we have right now," said Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime in a recent interview. "We are simply making an observation and that reinforces our point quite nicely with retailers."
