Believe or not, here in Colombia we are only getting 3.000 wii units. 45+ million people and only 3.000 wii’s. But the fact is that the pre-orders are going since October 1st and there is still some wii’s if you want one.
This chance doesn’t come in cheap: the price for a wii console in Colombia is Col$ 1.099.000, about USD 477. It’s almost as twice the price you would get it in the US, it is even pricey if you take in consideration that the Xbox 360 cost Col$ 999.000 (Core) and Col$ 1.299.000 premium.
So last week and walk in a store, ask if they were selling wii pre-orders , and they told me they got 150 unit for pre-sale. My friend Diego and I got the first 2 units in the list and no one else seems to mind. They even gave us free Wii Play shirts with each purchase. My Girlfriend bought Zelda for my birthday that is on early December.
I Can’t hardly wait ‘till November 19th
