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%26rsquo;t take any pre-orders on the Wii because we knew we wouldn%26rsquo;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%26rsquo;t had any new Wii consoles in for over seven months. They%26rsquo;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 %26ndash; 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.
