Nintendo 3DS Preorders Taking Place

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

If you are one of the thousands looking to find a new Nintendo 3DS, well you have a little more longer to wait. The official release date of the 3DS is March 27th, 2011 in USA/North America. Until then, you do have the option to pre-order the 3DS. At, we are tracking a variety of retailers already taking pre-orders. To place a pre-order now, head over to the Nintendo 3DS Tracker.

If you are one of those that would prefer to wait and pick up their system once the 3DS officially releases, then you have the option to sign up for our FREE in stock alerts. Once we see stock available for purchase at the retailers we track and you have selected, we will send you an email alerting you.  To receive the FREE in stock alerts, register for a free account, then add the Nintendo 3DS items you want alerted on. That’s it. We are currently tracking Amazon, Target, and Best Buy. If stock becomes hard to find after launch, we will add more retailers. To see our current list of retailers, visit the 3DS tracker.

Word on the street is Nintendo 3DS is highly anticipated, and pre-ordering may be the wisest option. However, given that the launch date is at the end of March and not near Christmas, inventory MIGHT hang around. Unfortunately, only time will reveal the popularity of  the 3DS.

Weekly Tracker Updates – Kinect, Xbox 360, D7000, GTX 580

Monday, December 6th, 2010

Time for the weekly tracker updates so all of our users remain informed.

Tracker Updates

This past week we had some serious stock arrive. Thank you to all of those users that have subscribed and continue to promote We try our damnedest to make sure that everyone of our subscribers gets what they are looking for in a timely manner, but of course this is also dictated by the retailers and their inventories.

Kinect Tracker

As suspected last week, Kinect stock is diminishing rapidly… even the Kinect bundles are going fast. This past Friday though, we saw a really nice unbundled Kinect offering from Amazon and really hope this trend continues this Friday. Why this Friday… well from our collected data, it appears that there is another shipment expected to arrive from Microsoft to the Amazon warehouses this Friday. Last week, the 250GB Xbox Kinect Bundle was available for preorder from Amazon with an expected shipment on December 11th, then another shipment was noted a day later for release on December 12th. From this, we could infer that sometime later this week we can expect some form of shipment from Microsoft… could there be more Kinects on the same truck? Remember this is pure speculation, only Amazon and Microsoft know when the next set of Kinects are expected to arrive, heck I bet Amazon doesn’t even know, hence why there are not pre-orders for the Kinect. If you are still looking for a Kinect, then be sure to visit our Kinect In Stock Tracker and sign up for the FREE in stock alerts.

Xbox 360 Tracker

If you read the above Kinect update, then you will see that there was some pre-order action going on last week for the 250GB Kinect Bundles at Amazon. Also, we had a stellar inventory of 4GB Kinect Bundles being offered from Amazon, that sold out in a slow enough manner that allowed a lot of you to get your hands on one. We hope this trend continues with a little more solid offerings on the 250GB Kinect Bundles instead of just pre-orders. If you are one of the subscribers in the market for a 250GB Kinect Bundle, please remember you will need to be really fast. This is the particularly hot model and inventory will fly off the virtual shelves. Visit the Xbox 360 Tracker for current stock statuses.

Nikon D7000 Tracker

The Nikon D7000 Body continues to elude us. While supplies of the Nikon D7000 Kit continue to remain in stock a variety of online retailers. While earlier this morning no one had stock of even the Kits, Best Buy was sure to replenish its stock by this afternoon. Kits from OneCall and Vann’s seem to have be cleaned out, but may return soon as well. But where are those Body Only D7000’s everyone wants? Looking for a Nikon D7000, then visit the tracker.

Monster High and Lalaloopsy Trackers

Both of these toys continue to have high demand with extremely low inventories. We think a lot of the retailers are pushing more inventory to their brick and mortar stores rather than to their online stores. Visit each respective tracker and sign up for FREE alerts: Monster High Tracker & Lalaloopsy Tracker

New Trackers

NVIDIA GTX 580 Tracker Launched

This morning we added a new tracker for the NVIDIA GTX 580. Inventory on the latest release of video cards from NVIDIA seems to be holding up well compared to last year’s GTX 480 release. While there is a stock available from across the many lines of video cards manufacturers, stock is still limited and there is a chance with the holidays that it will all vanish. It is clear that last years limited supply was truly dependent on the the release of DirectX 11. This year the GTX 580 cards are just upgrades to those initial 480 cards. We added the tracker just to make sure we had our bases covered in case the card demand starts to out strip inventories.

Side Notes

B&H Photo Tracking Live

B&H Photo tracking is live once again. You can Custom Track the items you want from B&H or Amazon, or select B&H from any of the other trackers where they are featured.

Till next week, hang in there, will help you get one!

Kinect & Xbox 306 Kinect Stock – Down with the Bundle Bundlers

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

I love it whenever stock becomes available from those retailers that refuse to bundle their merchandise. In the case of Kinect and the Xbox 360 this year, we have seen the Xbox 360 Kinect Bundle being bundled again with other items. I call these the Bundled Bundles and those that do it the Bundle Bundlers. Today was the first day we saw some relief from this trend thanks to both Amazon and

If you are still looking for these items, then make sure to sign up for a FREE account and add the items you want alerted on to your account. Heck, you might want to check the respective trackers first to make sure some inventory isn’t still hanging around:

Good luck all this holiday season and we hope can help you get what you want.

Kinect Tracker Update

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

It has come time to start adding Kinect Bundles to the Kinect In Stock Tracker. There continues to be a lack of standard Kinects available as stock rarely shows up and the last big offering of the stand alone units being last Friday at Amazon. As such we have begun adding the first of the Kinect Bundles to the tracker.

GameStop has a couple of Kinect Bundles, Sports, Fitness and Dance. Each of these GameStop Kinect Bundles comes with Kinect and two extra games for the low price of $250.

Dell Home/Consumer has been offering a multitude of bundle options. They have bundles with one game, bundles with two games, and bundles with Live Gold Subscriptions for all of your online gaming, plus they have bundles with an extra game and live subscription.

We have been featuring the Walmart Bundle for some time since Walmart never even had the stand alone Kinect for sale online.

The time has come to start seriously thinking bundles if you want the Kinect for Christmas day. If history tells anything when it comes to hot video game items, bundles rule the world when demand seriously outstrips supply.

If you are currently a registered user, then you will need to log in and add these new bundles to your account. If you are not a registered user, you will need to create a FREE account, then add the items you want alerted on. If you are just starting your search for Kinect, you better up your game, these guys will be hard to find by December 25th. Upping your chances beings with

Site News & Tracker Updates

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

It is clear that the holiday season is heating up. This week we have a few updates we would like to share with our users as well as all of those potential users out there. If you are not a registered user, then what are you waiting for, it’s FREE!

Deals & Coupons Section Launched

If you haven’t noticed yet, we have added a new Deals section to This is clearly a work-in-progress, and right now the only clear feature is Filter by Store. You may not be all that impressed, but we just wanted to get something up for the holiday season and are continuing to work on it as you read this. If you have a spare minute or two, then check out some of the latest deals and see if there is anything that piques your interest. Purchasing through these links will help support Also, if you have any suggestions on the direction this deals section should take, let us know! We love user input; it is what drives this site. Make a suggestion.

Enough, lets get to the in stock trackers, the heart and soul of NowInStock:

New In Stock Trackers

Playstation 3 Accessories

Are you one of the many looking for an extra PS3 Move Controller or two? Well then head over to the PS3 Accessories In Stock Tracker and check to see what inventory is available, if any. If no controllers are in stock, then be sure to sign up for our FREE in stock alerts! With this tracker, we are tracking Move Controller, Move Navigation Controller as well as the Move Starter Bundle.

UK Kinect In Stock Tracker

We have finally added a Kinect tracker just for the UK. If you are a UK-based user and looking for the Kinect, but having trouble locating one, then check out our UK Kinect In Stock Tracker.

Tracker Updates

Microsoft Xbox 360

This past week we updated the Xbox 360 In Stock Tracker with the new Kinect Bundles. We noticed that inventories of specifically the 250GB Kinect Bundle have been very limited. So we added a bunch of store. We are also tracking the 4GB Kinect Bundle as well as the new Holiday Bundle. If you are looking for one of these, make sure to head over to this tracker and see what is available.

Kinect Tracker

Microsoft Kinect is blazing hot right now and we don’t see inventories catching up anytime soon. Make sure to spread the word about to others you may know that are looking for Kinect. Come this Friday, when shipments should be released to consumers at tons of Black Friday sales, the real question will be how many will remain available.

As far as our in stock tracker for Kinect, we had to remove Kmart this week. Kmart’s inventory is just plain atrocious and constantly is displaying the wrong information to users, which means they are displaying the imporper information to us as well. Enough is enough, so we deactivated Kmart.

Nikon D7000

Nikon D7000 continues to fly off the shelves at all retailers except Best Buy which has had a steady supply of the Lens Kit version. I guess people really want to save that tax or Best Buy’s inventory is endless.

In other news regarding the Nikon D7000 tracker, Ritz has been removed for gross misrepresentation of actual inventories. With their site showing both the Body Only and Lens Kit versions as being in stock this past week, only for users to find out this was totally false after their orders were placed. As a result, we are no longer reporting on the D7000 at Ritz, at least until this product cools off and the tracker turns into a price comparison tool. It is clear that Ritz can’t handle being on an in stock tracker like

As far as additions this week in the D7000, we have added 2 new retailers: Vann’s and Both of these are only tracking the Lens Kit version of D7000. Once they have product pages for just the Body, we will add these as well.

Teacup Piggies

This weekend we added several new products under the Teacup Piggies line for Toys R Us. Also, we added Walmart to the tracker. Walmart’s selection is quite limited at this time, but I am sure inventory will start to show up sooner rather than later. If you are looking for Teacup Piggies, then head over to the tracker.


Squinkies appear to be slowing down. We think they might get the boot from the Hot Tracker section this week and moved to the standard trackers section. Tracking will continue on this item… so don’t worry, we are just going to slow it down. If the stock depletes and demand increases, then we will speed it back up.

Custom Item Tracking

Don’t forget, we do have Custom Item tracking for Amazon & B&H Photo right now. The more people use this feature the more stores we will continue to add. So keep on adding items you want.

That is all for this week. Ensure you stop back to the Deals section for Black Friday deals. Also, if we do not post between now and Thanksgiving, as we feverishly work on the Deals section, then here’s a Happy Turkey Day wish for all of our US-based users.

Xbox 360 Elite 250GB In Stock Tracker

Monday, June 21st, 2010

I just got finished updating the Xbox 360 Elite Tracker to include the latest release from Microsoft, the new 250GB Elite slimed-down version of the console. Nice to see that Microsoft finally added the Wi-Fi to the console as well. No more need to drop $100 in order to have a wireless enable Xbox 360! At any rate, if you are having trouble locating this new model, since the first shipments of stock seem to have been rapidly consumed, then make sure you create an account, and add this item to your alerts. You can visit the Xbox 360 Elite Tracker, register here, or add the alerts to your account.

I will also be adjusting the frequency of which this tracker refreshes according to the demand. So, the more users we get signed up for these alerts, the further the dial will be turned up, so SPREAD THE WORD!

Nintendo DSi Preorders Now Available!

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

Just released at a variety of stores, the Nintendo DSi which has sold record numbers in Japan, is now available for Preoder at Amazon. The unit is coming out in two different colors, Matte Black and Matte Blue with a price tag of $169.99. The unit is projected to be released on April 5th, 2009.

This release date is much closer than the earlier anticipated release of Summer or Fall of 2009 here in the US. I wander if Nintendo pushed up the release date to take advantage of the strong dollar? Makes sense to me that you would choose to do this when you can clearly make more per unit now.

If you want to see all the available preorder options for the DSi, please head over to the DSi tracker.

February Update: New Game Tracker, Wii Inventory

Monday, February 16th, 2009

Its been over a month since I last posted an update, so I have decided to give everyone a little insight into what has been happening with and the market.

Wii Inventories Stabilized

It appears that Wii inventories have finally stabilized with Wii’s being in stock for some time now at a variety of online stores including Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, and even Radio Shack. The Wii has finally run its high-demand course!

As a result of the steady inventory stream, I have DISCONTINUED all TXT alerts for the Wii via Twitter. I suggest that all users stop “following” NowInStock within Twitter as I will begin using it for future site updates and no longer for Wii stock alerts. To unsubscribe from NowInStock on Twitter, login to your Twitter account and stop “Following” NowInStock.

Google Group NowInStockWiis subscribers will continue to receive Wii alerts, however, I have removed the sign up form from the web site as there is no longer a need to use this group.

Wii Fit Inventories Stabilizing

Just like the Wii, Wii Fit inventories also continue to be steady, but a little less so than the Wii. WiiFit Twitter alerts will continue through the Twitter account NISWiiFit. Also, the WiiFit Google Group will continue to receive email updates, but like the Wii the sign up has been removed from NowInStock. You still sign up for FREE alerts, the alerts will just be distributed via my alert system.

Video Game Deals Tracker

What has been taking the majority of my time over the past few months is my effort to formulate a price tracker of sorts. The initial focus of these price trackers is to monitor Amazon for price flucutations and determining when “new lowest prices ever” are reached, when “all-time lows” are hit, when “new preorders” are available for preordering, and to “view all preorders” for each specific gaming system. I am tracking a series of video game systems with this new type of price tracker including Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, DS, PSP, PS2, PC, and Mac games. Also, I have a main video games deals page where one can see the deals found each day. As you will see on the this page there is also an RSS feed for each specific system so that you can use your RSS readers and have the deals delivered autmatically daily.

I will be working on add more features as time progresses, however right now I think this service is providing very valuable information. On each specific game system page you will find a complete list of all games I could find for each respective system along with price indicators and price details by clicking the icons in the info column for each game.

Please send over your thoughts or wishes for this deal tracker. I would love to hear your input. Also, rest assured that price alerts and inventory alerts are going to be included once I flush out the system to handle these.

That is all for now. I will continue to update every month with new developments.
