I've been wanting a Wii U for several months, but Mom won't get one.

Does anyone know why they're out of stock almost everywhere in Dallas?
2 Kirbies went to a food store and ate up all the food - The very next day, the store went bankrupt. Looks like we won't see that store again.

Everyone who wanted one bought them all up 2 to 3 years ago.

I personally have 2.

It sold just about 13.5 million units and has been dicontinued since early 2017. And at this point all retailer stock of it is sure to be empty.

You may have luck looking for it on ebay or Craigslist however.

Rare in what way? They are like $100.

I hope you're being serious. Wii U has been off the market for a few YEARS now.

Did you tell her to look on eBay ?

I got a used one for my mother-in-law a few months ago with no issues from GameStop.

Facebook Marketplace. Lots of people are just trying to get rid of it at this point without knowing what they have. $100 will sometimes get you a Wii U with games and accessories. Try it out, FB Marketplace.

Not many were made and it's cheap to get one if you find one. Alot of cheaper stuff is getting bought up cause of covid.
