flash no more.... deal dead!

The deal is not dead. It's a flash deal that changes frequently.

@huckfinn: You have to fast. You probably added one that someone beat you to purchasing. 1st to the cart gets the item and another item goes on sale. They are sold one at a time and are individual items. Keep refreshing.

How can they claim "Was: $399.99?" According to Wikipedia, the Wii launched in the US at $249.99.

@morriea @huckfinn
Yeah, and there are some other great deals here, too. Used Xbox 360s going for $69.99.

@johnt007871: Go to your account on the site and cancel purchase before it ships. It is a big button to click.

I bought a Wii in one of these previous flash sales and pretty much got everything I needed sans a Wiimote and nunchuk for around $45 before shipping and taxes. Seemed like a pretty good value to start off with. The value actually increased once we hooked the console up to the online game store, however, as we found that the previous owner had purchased downloadable games as well. Even though the system was reformatted, the console was still linked to all the previously purchased games so we were able to redownload titles like Mega Man, Legend of Zelda, and Mario 64 without having to pay an extra dime. If in the market for a Wii, I would say go for a refurb console just for the off chance that the previous owner bought a bunch of downloads so you don't have to start a collection from scratch.

@skutir: Speaking of which, anyone have experience with off brand wiimotes? should i just stick with OEM ones?

@johnt007871: The glow remote work quite well actually along with their nun chucks. However they do not have the PLUS feature and can not support the PLUS adapter, so know that before you purchase one for your wii sports resort, because it wont work.

Stay away from the LEGO controllers, my ladies little brother got one for Christmas last year and it stopped working out of the blue, wouldnt sync, and when it did it disconnected frequently.

I have been checking randomly for the past 3 and a half hours and I have seen a Vita, 2 different Xbox 360s, and a Nintendo DSi but I have not seen any Wii.
Is there still a chance I could get one??
Thanks!

@niceties55: They TREND toward more expensive, but always backtrack to earlier ones. So, yes.

What are the conditions actually like? There is a Vita with "4 - Significant scratches or scuffs". How severe is "significant"?

vote-for1vote-against

Somebody buy that freaking PS Vita so we can get on with the other deals.

vote-for1vote-against

I actually bought and then cancelled the Vita, because I noticed on the invoice (but not the listing) that it said "significant scratched, including scratches on the screen." Would buy it, except for the screen scratches. So, sorry!

@crab: I always recommend a 5 or better on anything from cowboom and you will be surprised by how nice it is. Whether it says scratches or not.
