Technology Review: GameStop to sell Nintendo Wii rain checks before Christmas as shortage persists

Small comfort to kids looking for an Xmas Wii.  I wonder what the average price of a Wii rain check will be, on eBay...

''We expect this to be a great way for consumers who desperately want a Wii to have something to put under the tree,'' Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime said Friday.

The rain checks will be available at the regular Wii system price, $249.99, on Dec. 20 and 21, and will entitle buyers to get the Nintendo console before Jan. 29. Fils-Aime said ''many tens of thousands of rain checks'' would be available.
