    Canadian dollars.

    Buy the bundle off walmart.com, its expensive and you have to choose a bunch of games with it, but if you put it on a credit card and have a walmart near by you can return the games to walmart and they can put the money back on your credit card right there. That is what I did and I got mine way back in January.

    My son got his the end of January, they were still giving out tickets and showing up at doors early.

    I don't think they are still readily available, but supposedly thats supposed to be the case very soon if not already.

    I got mine from Bestbuy and walmart on launch date. Ebayed 5 of them, kept one for a while, then sold it. I really enjoyed it, but the temptation of getting double what i paid for it on ebay gave in.

    I was able to buy one just a short time ago from Sam's Club - don't think that place is being camped as much since you have to have a membership to buy anything there. Find a friend who has a membership and have them take you in to get one. The one here had 42 systems show up and they lasted for several days.

    You are guarenteed to get one from walmart.com if you get the bundle. You just have to be able to bite the big purchase until you get the games, then you can return them and recoup your money. It really is a surefire way to get one, I don't know why more people aren't doing it.

    Although, you aren't missing too much right now, the best games are multiplayer and they are just minigames. Zelda and Excite Truck are about the only good single player games out there right now (IMO).

    But next month Super Paper Mario comes out and that should be awesome.

    Anyone know when the Wii will really start to get a lot of good games? I'm planning on getting one so I want to know when it will be worth it.

    Thats great if you want to spend more than $50 over retail.
