    They have them, I am now annoyed at myself for not grabbing a second one as I think they are sold out at my local store. :(

    Dude at my local JB laughed when I brought it up.
    100% sold out until their December stock comes in then it'll be online only.
    Same goes for the extra consoles.

    I pre-ordered mine the day it was announced :) Things like this usually sell pretty well, Nintendo and all that.

    I am sure they will have more stock for xmas....

    Popped down to Target this morning to try and pick up another controller, the girl advised that there was a line from 5:30 (and this isn't normally a packed Target!) of 40 people and they had 9 consoles and 4 controllers... what a joke.


    Hey does anyone have a lead on cheap extension leads for the pad - the lead is stupidly unusably tiny, and my eBay fu is failing me (surely EB Games isn't going to be the cheapest @ $12.95!)

    If anyone has/can pick up a second controller for me I'd be very happy!

    It's powered via Micro USB? What adapter are you using to power it? Just an iphone charger?

    working from home today, but mine hasnt been delivered :(

    I just plugged it into the PC, but yeah, a phone charger will do the trick.

    Oh well.. I guess I should have pre-ordered. If nothing else a december re-stock will make for a good xmas present for myself.

    Wow they are selling for pretty ridiculous amounts on eBay.
    I hope they get more stock of controllers they sold out before i preordered :(

    Seems to be about 300 or 400 for a console, and 100+ for a controller.
