    pissed off preorder

    Went to Eb games at 7:30 am today to wait in line for a nintendo wii. Turns out there was already 13 people there waiting in line. I would have been #14. At 10 AM the store manager comes out and says they'll only be getting 12 of them. That means I couldn't preorder a wii. After that I rushed over to another eb games only to see about 35 people in line. I didn't even bother. Now I have no idea how i'll get one on launch date. Either get one on ebay for like 500 or camp out at best buy. Both sound horrible. Any suggestions?

    they told me that they will have wii systems available at launch (EB/gamestop) for sale to people who DID NOT preorder, however those are the people that are going to be camping out lol, best thing i would think is like you said... pay the 500+ dollars to get it on ebay or camp at ur local retailer :-p sorry dude

    Hahaha! Sucks SO hard for you Americans :P
    Here (In Britain) I went in to my local GAME about 2 weeks after preorders started, and the close to guaranteed that I'd get it on launch day

    Anywho, the worst you'll have to wait is 2/3/4/5/6 weeks, not TOOOOOOOO bad! *half sarcasm*

    dont DO DRUGS!

    You will be fine, just find a smaller retailer no one thinks of as game orientated. During the 360 meltdown, a freind of mine walked into Woolworths (UK store) no pre order, picked one up off the shelf walked to the till paid and had a 360 before most people with pre orders.
