Wii now? Wii Later? wii, wii, wii, all the way home.

My son's been very good - high grades, no discipline issues, still active in real sports, etc...

for Christmas, I'd like to upgrade him from his old Gamecube to a Wii.

But I'm an old fogey dad who knows zilch about gaming - What's the concensus - shop and buy at the first decent deal or wait until closer to the holidays for bundle specials?

I've been told these things are still hard to get. Any secrets to shopping for one? (store suggestions, ebay, online sites?)

Are there bundles I should look for or just buy various pieces a la carte?

I'm guessing gamebox, two controllers, a couple games - missing anything?

Isn't Wii getting sued by someone? Thought I read that yesterday.

Also, most of what comes up at Wiialerts is Circuit City of ToysRUs. Make sure you have accounts established at both, so you can log in quickly and make the purchase.

Wii has been in stock several times this morning at ToysRUs - according to the Wiialerts I've been getting.

We have one and I really enjoy it. I'm almost 69. I especially enjoy the bowling game that comes with the Wii and Mario Kart.
