Nintendo Wii this weekend – get the games first

Got an automated recording call this evening from ebgames. We pre-ordered Trauma Center Second Opinion with our Wii last month, and the recording says that it will be available for pick-up tomorrow at noon. I’m sure they’ll hold on to it until Sunday when we pick up the console and the other games Eric got. Eric pre-ordered Zelda, but I think I’m going to try and switch it out for a more kid-friendly, less-time-intensive game like Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz.

For the heck of it, I’m flipping around to see how these things are doing on ebay and this one is from the “in your dreams” category. Not just the buyer’s dreams…the seller’s.

A Nintendo Wii, a Playstation 3 and a new TMX Tickle Me Elmo. Yeah, all of this year’s hot items…starting bid of $5,999! I can’t imagine anyone is that desperate, but who knows.
