    does anyone know anywhere i can buy a wii console on the net from usa?

    i am from bahrain, over here its being sold for US$800, i am nowhere accepting to pay such price for it, snd thats without any additional games.

    the max price including shipping to new york is $300 as i got an address with a shipping company and can import anything for me to bahrain as long it can be shipped to that address.

    i know in ebay i might get one with such price but they wont accept any payments other than from a confirmed us paypal account and will ship only to that paypal account address and no one accepts to send it to my new york address.

    Please help

    Not being sold on the net, but I would be willing to help. I can buy from eBay or Craigslist Philly and ship to you or your New York address, for $40 US. PM me.

    still no where other than ebay to buy this thing. just today the price was raised here in bahrain from $800 to $1000. no way i will buy any console for that price.

    i really want one but i am not welling to pay over $300 including shipping for it.

    They're supposed to be shipping higher supply in April so many the demand will go down eh? I would just wait. You're not going to find one for $300 including shipping. Consider this, in Michigan it costs $250 to buy one at the store, and another 6% for tax, so thats 265, so you have $35 for shipping, which I'm sure shipping for your country is more, then consider duty. You're definately going to have to buck up more than $300.

    i can import anything from usa without paying a penny even if i import a car as we have a free trade agreement with usan and also we are a tax free country ;) . shipping wont cost me using the courier service which i am subscribed with more than $40 considering the weight of the wii as xbox 360 with many games and accessories didnt cost me more than $80 dollars for shipping and the 360 console alone is bigger and heavier than the wii boxed.

    what i meant is $300 including shipping only to my usa address.

    I will take your advice and wait till late april for it and i hope amazon will get it. since they wont charge for shipping so it would cost me $250 for the console to reach my usa address, and then i will pay not more than $40 for it to be shipped from usa.

    even if i buy it now i wont be able to play much as it would take about a 10days to arrive and in less than 2 weeks i will be going on to vacation and wont be back home for 3 weeks. it would be smart to wait but i guess i got the wii fever since i saw its review in tv and want it NOW LOL

    thanks j2huggar as it seems only you from all members who felt like helping me out here.
