Yesterday I did my
wii-kly rounds of checking Canadian retail sites for Wii's for a friend that now lives in the Bay area and who's had no luck locating one in SF. So I did the usual check of futureshop.ca, bestbuy.ca and toysrus.ca, and low and behold to my amazement there's 7 Wii's in stock at futureshop.ca. This was a 1st as I've never seen anything listed other than a big '0' or 'Not in Stock'. So I immediately place my order and nab one; yeah my friend will no longer go for want!
As soon a I completed my order I noticed the stock was now at 3.
I immediately holler over to a coworker who's just walked into room and he jumps on the futureshop site and...and.... nada, zilch, zero; not a single Wii left! I figure about 2-1/2 minutes transpired before the stock was completely depleted; hence the name of my post. You here about sell rates like this being boasted about by Big 'N' brass, but it's always amazing when you see it with your own eyes.
