    Your Story

    Hello, it's your bro! I know that this has probably already been done a dozen times, but hey, why not an official place for us to tell our stories of how we got the wii? So here's my story, I'd like to read what you fellow wii owners have to say out there.

    It was early morning of November 19th 2006. I had tried everything, ordering off the internet, trying to get into a few lines, nothing worked! I couldn't give up though. I was there when the Wii was first announced, when it was unveiled, when it had the name REVOLUTION! I had to have it.
    I left early that morning to see if there wer any open lines. I did find oen, it was at ZELLERS. There were only a few people there, so I took my place in SEVENTH.
    As hours went by, we grew ancious to know how many wii's were available. More people came to the line, but only a few of us would get the wii today. Eventually, the manager announced that they only had SEVEN WII's!
    I froze- I'm seventh, there's seven wii's, wait a minute- I GOT ONE! I cheered as did those ahead of me in line. Immediatly we signed our names on a list to assure ownership of a wii. The stored opened, and we happily walked in single file. We each received our wii's. I will cherish it forever, as I will that moment. I was one of the few, the lucky, the proud, Wii Owners.


    -kind of corny if I don't say so myself...

    well... took me awhile but...


    I woke up at 5:00 AM then went to EB games with some tim hortons food to keep me awake, 3 hours of complete bordome later a dilevery man walked by and knocked on the door to EB games, he was gonn leave until I came up and told him they were there, they were just in the back and coulden't see or hear him... he said he would come back at 10:00 AM when everything was open. at 8:00 AM I went into bulk barn that was next to it and got a stewarts fountain classics , then at 10:00 AM EB games opened, there were only two people in line for the wii, me and some randome person , we hoped for two in, and when the delivery man came he had two playstation 3's.... AND TWO WII'S!!!! we both got our wii's and now, I am a proud owner of a nintendo wii! and the thing that made everything even BETTER was that I got D-link wireless internet in 2005, so now I have the wii and internet! .

    Well if you must know...

    I got my Wii on December the 17'th. My dad came home from a gig that he was playing in Baltimore, so he picked me up from a friend house at 2 AM, and we went to Best Buy. He called the night before, and they said the had 55, my dad took a head count and saw that we were 32. So, cool, I believed that we were going to get one for sure. But then, as we got their to my dismay, people were talking about the Best Buy only having 22! But, we waited...and waited for 6 hours. Then, the manager came out at 8 AM and passed out tickets to everyone, but I was asleep in the car, non-aware that the manager was passing out tickets. Luckily my dad was there, so he ran to the car , dragged me out, and there I was handed the last ticket they had. And so, I did a little victory dance, then claimed my Wii.

    And it all payed off

    i typed this story to another thread but ill type it again cause im just so overly happy that i got one on "pure karma"

    basically i was told that my local target had recieved a whole pallet of wiis so my bf and i quickly jumped in our car and drove on down. the kids that worked here were as useless as tits on a bull and did nothing to help us. also, their wii set up display was completely ransacked. not a thing was there no accessories NOTHING (just a few games)

    with that being a bust, we went to best buy 10 mins before they opend (due to holiday hours they opend at 10 not 9) and we walked right in and the sales associate told my bf and i that if anyone was looking for a nintendo wii they were towards the back of the store. vola we got one just as the sales associate was unpacking them from the bozes.

    YAY HAPPY DAY!

    Haha, mine beats all of yours.

    I offhandedly mentioned to my parents at like, easter, about the Wii.

    Christmas morning, I get 2 wiimotes, LoZ:TP, and a Wii.


    My voice will be hoarse from heckling all of you who waited in line! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!



    Please message me if you add my friend code so I can add you. Thank you. That is all.
