Is getting a Wii now even harder than on launch day?

In previous posts I’ve discussed both my experience of waiting in line at launch day to buy a Wii for a friend and my desire to get one for Christmas.  I talked to my mom about the Wii as my Christmas gift and she’s onboard.  In fact, she’s excited about trying it herself.  Now comes the tricky part – actually finding one in a store.  I’ve been looking at this site to track expected shipments and they are all disappointingly small.  Whereas on launch day, many Best Buy locations received in the neighborhood of 120 units, the next shipment looks to involve only about 12 – an order of magnitude fewer.  Although more shipments are expected before Christmas, I am beginning to despair that I will be able to get a Wii without camping out overnight.  If anyone has any suggestions or insider tips, I’m all ears.
