    There have been various reports of North American Target, Wal-mart, Kmart, and Meijer stores having sold Nintendo DS Lite units as early as May 30, 2006, breaking the official launch date.

    There is an example of early release.

Is there any chance you would be able to get a Wii at wal-mart before it comes out like, maybe a day-hour before it does? You would think Wal-mart could care less... Not sure, anyone?
    Actually, I camped out for the DS, they get it a day early, but they absolutley refuse to sell it a minute before 12 AM. They get it a day early for the people who are going to camp out.


    Wii pocket money=$273.00
    Bank Account=$1.23
    Money owed to parents = $25.00
    Sweet...

    I wouldn't say they would sell it early as it affects their stock replenishment & they get fined if they break the street date. Or maybe that is just in Britain?!

    I got Zelda: Windwaker a full 24 hours before the release date, at my local gamestop. And I'm good friends with them, and I have already checked into if selling me one early is a possibility. And since they allow their workers to get them early, they are going to let me do it too! =)

    Not true.

    GameStop's(and every other game store's, for that matter) policy is that the customer comes first.

    Employees are not allowed to purchase newly released games until two weeks after their release, even if they do not intend to use their employee discount.

    So, I don't know what your GameStop is doing, but they could get in serious trouble if the corporate offices found out.

    Off Topic: I would just like to draw attention to this extremely perfect awesome sig Wiired made for me!
    On Topic: I'm sure most of the gamestop people just have friends/family buy the games for them. But still, the manager at my gamestop gives out games and sells stuff for really cheap prices to his employees, sometimes games before they come out.

    The Wii is 250 dollars in the US, no matter what. You don't pay any more money to pre-order it. But to pre-order it, you have to pay like 50 dollars or more, if I remember correctly. That doesn't add to the cost, it takes away from what you need to pay at launch.
