    The back door inventory is apparently more accurate than the tools Circuit City has at their own disposal. A horror story: Circuit City pissed me off – I was in line for 30 minutes trying to pay for a controller – when they scanned it, it said something like “UNIT CANNOT BE PURCHASED APART FROM PACKAGE” or some crap. I asked what I had to purchase additionally, and they were like “I don’t know. Maybe the other controller [nun chuck]?” Then they kept just looking it up on the computer. They looked like monkeys, trying to do the same thing over and over and over, hoping that eventually it would work. This guy was in the back for about 10 minutes supposedly talking to a manager, but I watched him and he wasn’t doing anything. I finally asked them if he was still checking and the girl took me to the back so I could try to order it online and then pick it up instore, but she couldn’t find it online on their website, then this other manager tried looking it up for about 10 or 15 minutes while I just sat there. Finally, he scanned something else that was $39.99 and let me pay for it that way. Apparently he looked it up on Best Buy's website and some other big box sites and saw that it was never bundled with anything else. I was 20 minutes late coming back from lunch and had to eat a slim jim from Circuit City for lunch…

    Well here is a small glimmer of hope for those of us still on the hunt. I called two local Targets (Boston area), and they told me they aren't selling them until 1/21. I got an alert from itrackr saying they had them in stock.

    Hopefully I will be wii'ing by 8:15 on Sunday
    I gotta Wii!

    I'm expecting a couple of campers, but is a whole line of campers expected. I plan to go to Target 2 hours before opening. Is that enough time?

    Maybe, maybe not. If you REALLY want a Wii, I suggest the following:

    1. Go to target mad early (2:00am?), see if there is a line.
    2. If no line, go back to bed for an hour.
    3. Repeat

    Get your tail in line as soon as you see people lining up.

    Thanks, hopefully there aren't much people at the time I get there. I work the overnight shift, and I get off work at 6am, while the store opens at 8. If I seen 1 or 2 people there I'm heading to the line.

    Took a little digging, but I figured it out. I updated my first post in this thread with a link for the classic controller.

    Hello, new to the forum and of course trying to find a wii. I've seen classic controllers hanging in Meijer (Chicago area) and Target. I've also heard about the 21st and plan to be at Target between 4 and 5 am. I tried before Xmas, once at 7 am (no shipment expected, just feeling lucky that morning) then on a morning at 6:30 am when I knew they were coming but it was waaaay too late. Tents and chairs everywhere. We are expecting snow Sunday the 21st so maybe that will scare others away!

    Bingo! Finally got one at Target this morning. My daughter and I were there at a little after 2 am and it started snowing around 3:30 but I was prepared. Turned out that there were plenty Wii for all who were there before 8 am but I wasn't taking a chance this time. What we didn't realize was that the big competition was going to be for extra controllers and nunchucks. Once we got tickets at 7:15 we were told we could come back between 8 and 10 to get the Wii. We ate at McD and got back in line (this time we were about #15 in line instead of #2). The accessories (extra controllers, nunchucks, and Zelda) were 1st come 1st serve for people with tickets. We got the last controller, and nunchucks sold out a couple of people ahead. From there we zipped over to Meijer grocery store (lesser-known Wii seller) and picked up the 2nd nunchuck and Happy Feet. Thank God this whole ordeal is over. Oh wait... now I have to find a DS Lite!!!
