    I'm probably one of the people that waited the longest on here. I camped 29 hours in front of Walmart.

    Here's my story...

    I didn't have enough money to get a Wii, so I got it as a Christmas present. But I still went to go and pick it up just because it was exciting!

    Anyways, I call a bunch of local places, none of which have any Nintendos in stock. Finally, I call Circuit City and they said that they have some and that they'll be opening up at 10:00 the next morning.

    I get there at around 9:00-9:30. I was probably eighth, ninth or tenth in line. Finally, someone comes out and says that they gave all of their Wiis out to people at 7:00 in the morning.

    We were all pissed off because we were told that they wouldn't be giving them out before they opened that morning, so we basically waited in line for nothing. There were some people who were extremely pissed off, and they let the manager know it.

    Finally, the manager says that he'll allow us to reserve a Wii for the next shipment, so we payed for it there and all that stuff. I open it up on Christmas morning, and I've been playing it ever since.

    That's exactly happened at this Circuit City store in my area. Just like you, I got there around 9:30. I was happy because the line was so short. And then when the door opened, this guy came out and said that they were all sold out because the vouchers were given out at 7:00am! And then, a month later, when I got there again, a security guy at that shopping center said that a line was formed since 3:00am in the morning! WTF! I didn't have to wait but I wasted my time getting up early on Sunday morning.

    And I think that's the reason why Wii's getting so much more popular because modded Wii can play all kind of games: homebrew, backup games, old school roms and more.... As for me, I still buy games to support game developers. Besides, compared to xbox360 or PS3, Wii games is the cheapest (most wii games are $50, while xbox360 and PS3 games are $60 for most. Not to mention the top, must-have game Resident Evil 4 is only $30!! Wii accesories are also cheaper!)
