I hinted that I wanted the package with Legand of Zelda in it. So I'll hopefully be starting off with the sports games and Zelda. I heard Zelda is pretty sweet.

Saw a report about Wii yesterday on TV. There never have been released so much games in addition to a release of a new gaming-platform than with the Wii. They showed some games like Rayman, Tennis, Bowling, a racing-game and stuff. One of it was even Zelda, which looks pretty good in my eyes. If you got to move the sword there like you have to move in playing tennis than this game will really rock. If I would ever think about of buying a console of any kind the Wii may be my first choice.

I have seen it happen at the store I work at that something worth $100 has accidentally been priced at $10 for 2 days before someone noticed!

I don't work at a small local store either I work at.... :oops: Wal~mart

According to my sister who worked retail for a short time, customers will occassionally take the price tag from a less-expensive item and tape it over a more expensive item's price tag in order to try to con the store out of money. It typically doesn't work when "Squirt guns" comes up for a PS2, but I assume it must work sometimes if the cashier is distracted enough, else people really wouldn't do it as much.

Another popular thieving idea has been to stick smaller items in bigger boxes, primarily ala prepaid gaming cards for WoW and the like. :roll: Apparently a friend of some kid in my drafting class walked out of the store with three years worth of play time for the price of three months or something. Left a trail of empty boxes in his wake...

If the store realy decides to care, they can go through the security tapes and catch him. Depending on the surveillance laws in the States...?

I used to work in the cash office at my local Walmart, and I used to have to work with security in pulling up cashier register journals and looking for particular things. Sometimes the customer was actually a friend of the cashier, so the customer would bring like DVD players and stuff with price tags of much lesser items, and the cashier would ring it through and I guess get a piece of the action when he/she saw their friend next.

But Ive seen people try and return like DVD players with a rock inside the box, or computers that they dismantled and took all the inside parts out, and clothing that was dirty and torn. Some people have no shame.

A trick for nicking mp3 players here is to take the box into the expensive hifi area of the store (the light in that area of the store are typically dimmed) and to remove the price tag and anti-thief sticker. A guy I know tried that and it worked.
