Keeping tabs on UK Wii stocks on Santa's behalf.

November 17, 2008

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, the popular Nintendo Wii stock checking website, is set to keep children and parents happy this Christmas. Thanks to the site, it's possible to avoid those unwanted tears and tantrums when - thwarted by perennial annual stock shortages and consumers battling over the last few units - Santa fails to include the desired Wii Fit ( in his sack on December 25.

Stock of the popular Wii Fit has been in short supply since its launch in April 2008, resulting in hordes of disgruntled shoppers trying to track down this elusive 'must have' game for their kids. Now, they can do so easily at and cut out much of the 'legwork'.

The site automatically checks online retailers - such as Amazon, Game, Dixons and Comet - for stock and immediately notifies its user of availability. Free to use, the service provides a full list of retailers with their current stock situation; buying tips; email alerts; a previous stock history of individual products so users can track past trends and potentially calculate when new stock is due to arrive; and an invaluable real-time auto alert webpage. The user can leave the Wii Fit alert page ( open on their desktop so they are immediately notified of new stock with a pop message or audio alarm. This is an essential resource when stock can run out in minutes!

Wii Fit comes bundled with the Wii Balance Board which connects wirelessly to a Nintendo Wii Console. It features more than 40 different exercises, helping users to get healthy and have fun at the same time whilst also being able to track their progress over time.

Michael Green, site founder of says: "It seems that 'pester power' is one of the strongest ever marketing tools and, with many stressed-out parents desperately trying to avoid disappointed children on Christmas day, stock shortages are likely to continue beyond the festive season. Stock will often sell in minutes, especially at the RRP of £69.99, and our website gives shoppers an essential competitive advantage in buying before everything disappears!"

"To date, has helped over 3,000 people buy their Wii in time to avoid the festive fall-out."
