Retailers milking the Wii Zapper

ZapperSeveral chain stores, including the retail giants GameStop, EB games and Circuit City have begun to milk the Wii Zapper gun for its popularity.

The high demand of it has caused it to consistantly sell out (a lot like the Wii itself…) since its Nov. 19th release.

Like the vultures they are, these retailers began to sell the Zapper at $24.99, $5 more than the $19.99 MSRP.

Bastards. This isn’t gas, it’s a freaking Zapper. Give us a break here and stop thinking about the massive profit margins you’re going to get off of this move.

If it wasn’t always sold out online, I’d say look for it at the $19.99 MSRP price on and Otherwise take the hit, and shake your fist at the guy selling it to you from across the counter. It’s only 5 bucks after all.
