Damn! That is awesome. To bad I don't live anywhere near a Frys. This probably isn't gonna be good online, is it?

But maybe this a a sign. i was gonna wait for Target to do $134 + 20 GC again, but maybe this means other retailers will do $99 on Black Friday. Best deal on the Wii I saw to date

Amazing deal, been looking to get one these past few months. I wonder if Sears would match this plus the 10% difference. Anyone have any luck pricematching FRYS ads?

Right now, online it's still retail price, but maybe it will change midnight Pacific time.

God damn, what a deal. It would be great if you wanted a 2nd Wii or you just want a Wii to play the exclusives. Plus you get Mario Kart.

With Mario Galaxy and other games super cheap now, it's a great deal.

Looks like Slickdeals wiped out the online stock instantly, if there was any to begin with.

oh, wait! doesn't walmart or target match print adds? Is this gonna be in the paper tomorow or was it already in todays? I can go try to dig through it to find one.

No one takes online adds anymore, and most stores dont even bother to call you need a print add. Im not driving like 40 miles and hitting the madhouse to get one of these at FRY's but if some store would price match it may be worth it.

That or wait for black friday. Anyone think they'll hit this low on Amazon?

Walmart will price match the print ad. They don't verify stock either like Best Buy or Sears (although you can try those stores too, just more likely YMMV).

right but im saying wheres the print ad? It wont be in Sundays paper since it sounds like its today only.. was it in saturdays paper, or yesterdays? (fridays)

I know Frys sometimes just sticks their adds on the back of a random section of the newspaper. Im just trying to figure out how to get a print add to make them match it

I've had problems with BB price matching special sales like this, saying it's only 1 day so they won't do it.

I was in-store, the guy was getting a black one for me and then when I saw the new models sitting up there, it just clicked. I ended up passing b/c I figure eventually this new model will be $149 or lower (and probably pretty quick) After all, it was my 'OG' model that freezes after 30 minutes..so IDK, I kinda want this, but I can also kinda wait..

Why is everyone going nutso-insano over this? It's only a $50 discount and the Wii sucks anyway.

It's only good for people who want something to play GameCube games.
Otherwise they'd be better off waiting for the Wii U instead.

The new model lacks any GCN support (removes backwards compatibility and can't use GCN controllers), so I wouldn't exactly call it better in any way.

My kids love the wii and I have been wanting to have Mario Kart Wii just for them but it still retails for $50.
I also need an extra set of wii remote($40) and nunchuck($20).

Buying them all separately will cost me $110.
By buying this bundle for $99, I will end up paying $10 less and I will have an extra wii console just in case my current wii craps on me.

I have no intention of jumping on wii U and my kids will still play wii next a few yrs.

It has more and WAY better exclusives than the 360. I don't know what you're talking about.

You should read this (slightly modified):

[The OG model is] only good for people who want something to play GameCube games [in addition to Wii games]. Otherwise they'd be better off waiting for the Wii U instead [because] . . . [t]he new model lacks any GCN support (removes backwards compatibility and can't use GCN controllers), so I wouldn't exactly call it better in any way.

I hope this is an early warning that there will be a ton of Wii console deals from now through year-end. I haven't owned the system for a couple of years, but I don't know if I'll be able to stand going through Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations without playing the new Zelda!
