It's hard to say if this rumor is true, but it's not behavior that Best Buy has avoided in the past. In fact, we vividly remember this exact same scenario
happening in late 2006 -- the difference
? That was the Wii's launch year
. This is two years later. Two. Years. Later.
Oh, and it's totally a futile effort, considering that Wally World sold through "tens of thousands
" in about four milliseconds. Seriously people, there's a new Elmo
to wage holiday war on, you have no business scrapping for a Wii 25 months after it hit US shores.*
*Image above is assumed to be Photoshopped, as we cannot find a single human to confirm ever seeing that many Wii consoles for sale in one location.
