Some analysts are predicting the console shortage currently taking over the country may not be letting up anytime soon. Current speculation is suggesting that the lack of available Nintendo Wii and PlaysStation 3 consoles may last until March. It seems the PS3 is a little bit easier to acquire as folks are hitting up the Craigslist trying to swap their PS3s for the more desireable Wii consoles. People are even taking pretty big losses by not wanting any compensation in addition to the Wii for PS3 trade—just a straight up trade.

Regardless of your method of getting a next-gen console—whether it be begging, camping, selling yourself, or stuffing them down your pants—we wish you luck, you will need it for the next few months.
