    Game Store experience (same day, 2 minutes after HMV experience, stores are next to each other).

    *Walked in, store was empty and I walked to counter*

    *Looks up to see the 6 foot poster saying "Nintendo Wii Preorders now being taken"*

    Me : "Ummm... that please *points to poster*"

    GameGuy : "Ok, fill in this form and please hand me your game card"

    *Hand over game card and fill in form*

    GameGuy : "Ok, you're number 27 in the list, we're getting at least 30 so you got in there just in time. We'll call you with any new information we get. Are there any games you really want, so I can call you when we take preorders for them?"

    Me : "Zelda for sure, Red Steel too maybe."

    GameGuy : *Notes down games on my preorder entry* "Ok, we'll give you call when they're ready." <<Here comes the best bit>> "If you have the internet, you should goto www.wiichat.com, easier to see all the latest news on there."

    Me : "Thanks, I'll have a look. Bye."

    -------------------------

    That was a few weeks ago now, just finally got around to registering. Preorder required a £20 deposit only.
    haha, that's awesome

    Well, I went into this gameshop in DK (Where I live..This is translatet, through.. We don't useally speak english in tha DK-shops..)..

    Me: "Hi"
    This freaksome man: "Hello, how may I help you"
    Me: "Well, do you people here take preorders?"
    This freaksome man: "Well, sorry, but the Wii will NOT come to Denmark..Sorry.."
    Me: "Ehh.. .. .. What?!"
    This freaksome man: "As I said, it will NOT come to Denmark"
    Me: "Ehh.. Well.. bye.. .. .."

    -About ten minutes later, in front of my PC (Well, I WANT A MAC BUT MONEY DOESNT REACH!!), I found out that he was completely lying in my face.. Great way to get customers, you know!

    I went to gamestop and the guy there said that their entire initial shipment would be preorders (they didn't expect to have any extra). He said that they hoped to get another shipment in before Christmas, but he wasn't sure if that would happen. He also said that this mysterious second shipment would probably go to people who preordered as well - that there would be another round of preorders after launch date for the second shipment.

    Same guy said they're only getting 17 PS3s between now and Easter.

    My money is on the Wal-mart that just opened this summer out in BFE (they said they're getting them and will be putting them on the shelf at 8a). More on that plan in another thread.

    My experience was similar to Inspire's. I called to ask if the place I pre-ordered from was going to do a midnight release and he said that he wasn't sure since their whole first shipment was going to pre-order customers. He said that they had sold out of pre-orders withing the first two hours the store was open. Luckily I got there before everyone else and was first on the list so I should get one even if the store only gets one unit.
    #1 on the list for a Wii

    I get many responses (From one person!)

    Calling Wal-mart

    "Hello?"

    "Wal-mart electronics...."

    "Hi, are you having the midnight sale of the Nintendo Wii?"

    "Sorry, that system doesnt come out until November 29th"

    "Sorry to correct you, but it comes out on the 19th and I would like to know if you are going to have a midnight sale"

    "Uh, we close at 4 A.M."

    "Yeah, I would like to know if you'll have a midnight sale for the Wii"

    "That comes out on the 19th..."

    "Exactly, can I get it at midnight, the second it turns Sunday, November 19th"

    "Lines will start the day before..."

    "Uh... sorry?"

    "The lines to get a Wii, they start the day before it comes out"

    "Sorry, but is it possible for me to start a line on Friday?"

    "Sure..."

    "Then why did you say....ah whatever..."

    "Thanks for calling"

    And as she was about to hang up, she almost whispered "Blech, dumbass"



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