Wii Fit preorders axed at GameStop & Amazon.com

Well, Wii Fit is so popular that both GameStop locations and their website, as well as Amazon.com have stopped taking preorders for the game.

This is for sure going to be a money maker for Nintendo, I am glad I preordered a couple of weeks ago. There is no way in hell I am paying a scalper for Wii Fit, already had to do that with the Wii Console itself back in 2006.

So if you are looking for Wii Fit, you need to preorder at one of the other still available retailers, or you are going to have to wait a while for new shipments to arrive. I can't imagine Wii Fit being scalped to more than $300 on Ebay, but I hope no one ends up paying that much. That's $50 more than a retail Wii, that is just ridiculous. Good luck to all of you who still haven't preordered!

EDIT: Toys R Us.com has ended preorders for the game as well. No word yet on if this applies to the stores as well.

EDIT 2: Walmart.com has stopped preorders also.
