When the Wii's went on sale this Saturday morning (4/28/07) at Toys R Us in Kameido, Tokyo, these Chinese students were there to buy up as many as possible. I'm assuming they are going to be resold. I even saw some old Chinese ladies walk out with a few Wiis.

Every white bag you see has a Wii in it.

Fucking hoarders. I guess you're going to encounter them no matter where you live.

The video is a bit disappointing, I would of liked for you to go "You've done it now! CHEAPY ANGRY! ARGHHHHHHHHHHH!!" and go about destroying their Wiis.

I will never respect the opposing 'viewpoint' on this one.

Why Chinese?

My guess is that this is just an easy way for them to make money.
Their student visas may not allow them to get the kind of jobs they would be interested in. They can probably make about $50-$75 per Wii.

If you are asking how I know they are Chinese...they were speaking Chinese, so I just assumed...

Damned Hoarders. I think someone should make a shirt that says "fuck you hoarder" in all languages covering the shirt. I lack the photoshop skills to make a mock-up.

What we don't see is that we are looking at the large bags, and everyone was looking at the large white man filming.

umm, they have to sell the wii at a profit so that'd be a 300-325 dollar wii.
I decided against buying some things I bidded on a lowball auction. Didn't know it'd be a big problem. Sue me.

Ya Japanese dont have a great love of their neighbors to the east but they don't seem to care too much when they are padding their pockets. Nintendo is definetly happy, this one of the major factors why the DS and Wii are always sold out in Japan.

If you wanna see where they all are ...
...

Oh well, I guess they do have to eat somehow but sucks for legitimite buyers.

Damn, would it kill stores to make it one per person on Wii's

They'll be the first ones to blame Ninty for not keeping up with demand and causing their customers to leave dissapointed, yet they'll let 5 people buy their entire Wii stock in a morning.

Damn, this shit winds me up.

Yeah, it's a shame, as y'all said. On the bright side, surely the hording will soon eventually subside a bit THROUGH the horders, once they can saturate the market enough themselves, coupled with Nintendo's continued consistent production...but in the meantime, again as y'all said, I think we can all relate to the disappointed gamers turned away because of the horders. It'll work out, though. Gamers will get their Wii eventually, hopefully at retail and not through horder mark-up.

By the way, I've long lurked over the YMIJ board, shared links to threads here with friends, etc. One of my favorite places on the internet is this particular board! First comment here, so I figure I'll just go ahead and show my belated props right here while I'm finally actually posting! Thanks for sharing all of this stuff with us, CheapyD, and thanks to the CAG regulars for always being hilarious with the comments.

It really dosen't exist here either sadly.

I wonder how many of those Wii's will end up in a factory, thus the production of counterfeit/fake Wii's.

At least they can get Wiis over there. You can't find a Wii here for jackshit.

And yeah its the Chinese that hate the Japanese. Ever heard of the "Rape of Nanking?" Its when the Japs killed over 200, 000 people around WWII. It is basically the forgotten holocaust. Not only did the Japs killed that many Chinese, but they also tortured and raped many people as well. At least 20, 000 women and children were raped. There are stories of the Japs forcing fathers to rape their daughters and men being forced to have sex with corpses just for the amusement of the Japanese. The Chinese were also used in "experiments" just like the Jews were. What pisses me off most is that the fucking Japanese government still does not have the fucking balls to admit they did all this. Bunch of fucking denying pussies.
