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

*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."
