Wii Sales Don’t Last Long

Amazon did four special Wii game sales Friday. Super Paper Mario was their deal of the day and sold out pretty fast. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn followed. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption sold out at $29.99. (Heck, for that price even I might have picked it up.) But the one deal of the day I was home for started at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. Five minutes after it started, I clicked on it:

Wii Simpsons Game

Sold out in less than five minutes. I bet it didn’t last a minute. Wii fans are ravenous.

I’m going back to Guitar Hero III now, thanks.

    Was this just a one-off Augie or do Amazon do this all the time? I wonder if Amazon.co.uk does this sort of stuff as well since those were some pretty sweet deals.

    Amazon has specials every weekday — one that lasts for the entire day or until supplies run out (the Golden Box deal) and then three or four that run for three hours each.

    The Wii thing was a one-off special. You don’t see Wii games on there, otherwise.
