More shocking secrets of game store workers - Part Three

The Consoles - Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

GamesRadar: Any particular issues - in terms of pre-orders or otherwise - to do with Wii?

Employee #4: There was the obvious drought in Wiis not so long ago, which did bring forth some very unhappy customers. Most were understanding, though, and waited patiently.

Employee #7: We didn’t take any pre-orders on the Wii because we knew we wouldn’t get any. We managed to get three or four just after launch and we have had a few pre-owned ones traded in once people realised that the novelty wears off after 10 minutes. We haven’t had any new Wii consoles in for over seven months. They’re readily available now from suppliers, but my boss never orders them in. I probably get asked at least 10 times a day for them. It drives me mad.

Employee #3: Wii sold really well at pre-order. The only problem I ever had with Wii was this – after spending half an hour convincing a man to pre-order one, he then realised it was white and wouldn't go with his TV.
