I got mine on launch at midnight!
I was the third in my town to get one, as there was only one shop selling them on launch.
I was lucky to get one to be honest, there were only about eighteen wiis available, and loads of people who didn't preorder turned up at the shop at midnight expecting to be able to buy one, hehehe. Made me laugh.
BUT what the strange thing was, it wasn't ME who went to the launch thing at midnight..I had had a long day and another one ahead of me, so my GRANDMA went :P
Amongst a load of young adults and obsessed gamers, was my little old grandma asking which games are good and whether she could play on their display wii.
I really can't imagine what it looked likeXD
