    On Christmas, my parents gave me a little box with an IOU in it, saying they owe me a Wii since they couldn't find one around that time. Since my bday was in early February, they found one at our local Wal Mart, picked it up, and a new tv for my birthday.

    So it was like getting two presents in one!

    I started searching for mine a couple days after the release date (10th december-ish) which was when I joined these forums Anyway I had just woke up on the 22nd December so I popped onto Amazon and there they were in stock. I guess I was just in the right place at the right time, good luck getting your Wii.

    I had to wait 4 hours in line which was a pain the butt but not hard.

    I sat outside a Best Buy all night on the release day just so my friend could get one. I still don't have one.

    No offense to any one but im laughing at all these my dad waited in line for me and my parents are being lame and not buying me one there so lame. Oh lol it is funny . Here in Austrlia you could walk into a store and buy one but now I see signs saying "Sorry no Wii systems in stock" and "Wii back in stock hurry!". I was second to get mine in Canberra which is cool beat some freaky nerd wearing a homemade perfect dark t-shirt who thought he deserved one because he was a huge mega fan and hasn't showered his mum tried to buy the number two ticket of me and same for my friend who had number one(this guy was 30 or so btw)

    See I made it my own! RELIGION *whoosh* wow a 50 page thread bout how there beliefs are right and you are all wrong wow. Oh do want to be different rep! even if I don't help it seems to happen a lot here

    I went to many different stores on launch day with my dad. Luckily they were all within about two miles of each other, but it was just annoying to get in and out of the car time after time. It was roughly six stores until we hit Sears where I waited in line for about an hour to hear them have two Wii's in stock. There were about 15 people there and to get the Wii, we had to do a raffle. Anyways, I entered my name and then my dad entered his name and on the second drawing, they pulled my dads name. I was so relieved.
    Yep, so that's my story.
