    We went all over Lima.We thought maybe we'd be lucky and find one at the game store.We went to Game Crazy and asked the guy working if they had any wiis.He said no but they had a waiting list.We were number 9 on the list.We got it in 2 weeks.We went back to put ourselves on that list again for my mother in law.It took 1 week this time.She'll be pretty happy on Mother's Day.

    My Wii was also a gift fromy my parents for getting good grades. But they said I had to take care of the ordering since they are just providing the money. So I searched everywhere online and finally managed to get one pre-ordered with Argos.co.uk at the last minute. I consider myself VERY lucky to have a Wii.

    I walked up to Target 2 hours before they opened on the 19th of November and waited in a line. An hour after they opened I walked out with a Wii and some accessories.

    I will never pre-order something like this. I have heard so many people getting screwed over with game stop and EB that I only go there if I can't find the game or accessory at any other place.

    Good thread

    Man getting the Wii was really bad...
    I had the money to buy the Wii and LoZ:TP, no problem with cash...
    There was a store with the game, but no Wii, I went to more stores in search for the Wii. Entered in like 5 stores, but no Wii, just launch games.
    I was getting sick of that, so instead of going to the stores, just went to home, and phoned other stores:
    (Me) - Hey, do you have any Nintendo Wii in store??
    (Employe) - Let me check that out.

    *waits for like 10 minutes*

    (Employe) - Sorry, we sold our Wiis today.
    (Me) - Oh really, ok thanks.

    *frustration*

    And this phone calls repeats like 5 more times...
    I did one more call, and the answer was FU**ING YES.

    Now I have a Wii and 5 games, and I love it...
