I'm hovering around the Wii games, considering picking up Mario Strikers Charged...
Clerk: Can I help you with anything, sir?
Me: No, just looking.
Clerk: Do you already have a wii?
Me: Yeah. Short pause while I considering starting a conversation. Are you still getting them in stock?
Clerk: Actually, we just got some in yesterday. Always at the beginning of the month so I have to decide Wii or rent, ha ha.
Me: Oh yeah, how many did you get?
Clerk: Twelve, we get a certain amount based on how many accessories and games we sell. They figure it out based on that.
Me: You still have people waiting in line outside the store?
Clerk: Not yesterday, because it wasn't an advertised thing, but we have calls every morning as soon as we open asking if we have any, and when word gets out they're gone right away. I heard that the Wii is outselling the PS3 four to one. The PS3 has been a compete bust.
I circle around to the PS3 section, hoping to see something good on discount by now. Only two games interest me: Marvel Ultimate Alliance is $50 but I'm sure that sucks, Blazing Angels is $50 but the sequel drops in a month.
I buy Mario Strikers.
