I spotted this on eBay.
That's right, some guy actually thinks he's going to get $99,999 US for a Wii, or $124,000 CAD. In all fairness, he is offering free shipping to Canadian residents. In case you're wondering what $100,000 gets you...

I've left out the user name of the guy to protect the guilty. It's worth noting that Wind Waker and Sonic Adventure DX are not rare titles as claimed. I found both of them for sale on EBGames's US website. Now, I'm not accusing this guy of scamming people. Most cases of this are publicity ploys and the price will likely drop once enough traffic draws attention to it. It just seemed so outrageous, I had to post it.

Even two years after it's release, the Wii is still in high demand and still proving difficult to find. I have yet to see one just sitting on a store shelf. Yes, I still would like one but paying $300+ on eBay, which is the going rate, is ludicrous. Wii is over priced to begin with at it's MSRP of $279.
