You too can own a Wii - for $209 !!!

The Wii will theoretically be available in some quantity Sunday at BB and CC.

Circuit City now has an online coupon for $40 off of $200 for a single item. This means you can now get the Wii, which is $250, for a mere $209.

This would be a double bonus - actually getting a highly popular gaming console that has been unavailable, and getting it for $40 off while it is still highly popular.

Anyone waiting to get that Wii?

This looks good. I need a gaming console for my new TV.  As I am now waiting for the Zephyr :thumb:
Thanks for the heads up!

This is the TV, though this is not my setup.  It is the Westinghouse LVM-37w3

Sweet! 1080p goodness! And I have always wanted to have an LCD TV that could double as a PC monitor.

37" may be too big for normal PC use though, would have to use it from the couch!

And the Wii has Opera if I am not mistaken.

I am debating on a Wii, it seems like it would be so much fun to play little doodads in a game of tennis with that controller...and of course instant fun for anyone who comes over for a visit!

I really wanted the connectivity so I could play PC games on it.  This makes my visual needs satiated.  We are traveling the globe so weight is an issue.  The projector and this tv make about 60lbs I believe.  Also, I should not have the rugrats argueing over either one, so the Mrs and myself can enjoy our shows or MY games by our(my)selves.

Yes thats a good weight for TV plus projector!

So planning on the Wii then for now? Have you heard any dates for the Zephyr? I am afraid it may be awhile...

No, but I can wait it out until it does.   We ship out either May or June.  I should have my saved Burnout and Oblivion by then.  I sold my NTSC-J to a friend.  Right now I am concentrating on finding a job and then hacking my PSP.   It seems to have alot of potential.

Well this is looking interesting....

I have not been in a gaming mood lately, watching movies instead.

But I really think I will get one of these sometime soon. THey look great for those that don't play video games much, and folks who come over with their kids.

Good luck finding one. They're still nearly impossible to get in Austin.
