Greetings michelle424,

Wii units are still on very limited supply from Nintendo, and when we receive them at the stores, they are sold on a first come, first serve basis. The exception is when we have an upcoming ad, there are at times units held to ensure we have acceptable quantities to fulfill this ad. They are then sold that Sunday when the ad hits the public. Our stores are unable to tell customers when they are going to be on ad also.

My best advice is to always check on Sunday mornings in case of advertisement. Also to check often, and hope you are there when we receive them.

I know this is an uncomfortable answer, however we have no control on the amount of units we are sent. We can also only hope for the best.

Thank you,

Go Ahead. Use Us.

How do you buy games?

Video Games are available at your local electronics store (like best buy). If you want to get them online (there is less of a selection) they are available on the "Wii Shop" channel (assuming you are using a Wii).

Hey Firequay,

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide customers with any information regarding when their local Best Buy™ store is scheduled to receive a shipment of any given product. Products are usually made available for sale as soon as they are received from the manufacturer, and are always sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Hope this helps you out.

Hey cool beans,

While we are unable to provide specific details regarding when Best Buy™ stores receive individual shipments, it is generally advisable to check back whenever a new ad becomes available. Our sales typically run Sunday through the following Saturday, and our stores should stock products accordingly.

Hope this helps you out.

Hey Anzee,

Unfortunately, Best Buy™ stores are not taking special orders for the Nintendo Wii at this time. The Wii is being sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and you would need to check with your local store for product availability.

Additionally, please keep in mind that we are unable to place products on hold unless they were ordered through for in-store pick-up.

Hope this helps you out.

Game Cube remotes for Wii

Hi, on the top of the Wii will be a hidden flap which conceals 4 gamecube controller ports. You will need to buy a memory card which there are two slots for that to store the games. Gamecube memory cards are quite cheap and you can pick them up for between £2 to £10. Hope that helps.
