I am stoked.  A friend from work knew I was looking for one and he was at Costco the other day and they had a shipment of Wii's, so he bought 6 and saved one for me!  I'll post what it's like next week when I finally will hook it up :).

Congratulations!  Can't wait to get your impressions.  Do you have rugrats?  Would like to get their impression as well.

The Costco version comes with Wii sports, an extra Wii mote, and Zelda, which is a franchise I love, so good pack in game for me.  I plan to buy SSX Blur immediately and then just see what it's like.  I'm using it on a regular tube TV, so I won't be able to evaluate it's modest 480P graphics until I get a new TV.  When I get the new TV, then I get an Xbox Elite (more probable) or a PS3.  I haven't really been paying attention to many of the games for the Wii since I was just so dead set on finding one and having so much trouble.  I don't even know if I need to buy more accessories for this thing?  I don't know anyone that has one to ask questions about it.  However, everyone seems to be looking for the damn thing.  Here's hoping I don't break my TV screen with the Wiimote! :nono:

I don't have any kids, but my co-worker who bought it does (2 boys- like 4 and 6 years old), so I'll find out what they think of it on Monday when he brings mine in.

People like your friend are why my friends have been looking for 5 months and still haven't found one  :cuss:  I wish I could find a stack and buy all of them, too  :bomb:

Yeah, I'm sure my friend will clear some extra $$$ with the 4 extra he bought at Costco.  It has to be this way at any store they offer them at.  Honestly, I think stores should limit purchases to 1 or 2 per customer.

Well they sell for $350+"handling" on ebay, so there's no maybe about that.
