    Your Results Of calling/asking about wii

    Okay. I wanna know your results on calling your local electronic store or asking an employee about the wii. Maybe you had a dumb employee who had no idea what you were talkingabout? Maybe something dumber.

    Here are mine :
    EBgames:
    "Hello?"
    "Hello and welcome to EBgames how may i help you?"
    "Uhh yea, I was just wondering how many wiis you guys are gonna get?"
    "Limited Supply"
    "So you guys have no idea what so ever how many your getting?"
    "Limited Supply"
    "Okay then.. Thank you , Bye"

    Loblaws, Electronique store, Talking to an old guy who was an employee.
    "Hello, Are you guys taking preorders for the Wii?"
    "The what?"
    "The wii."
    "The nintendo thing?"
    "Err yea."
    "No but were getting them on nov 19th."

    Gamestop:
    "Hello, you called gamestop, this is Tom speaking, how may I help you?"
    "Hey, are you definately accepting pre-orders for the Wii tomorrow?"
    "Yes, and you need at least $50 dollars down on it."
    "And how many do you think you'll be getting?"
    "We're not sure, but we are expecting around 30."
    "Ok, thanks."

    My gamestop dudes know what they are talking about. =)

    HMW experience.

    *Walked in and up to the counter*

    Me : "Are you taking preorders of the Nintendo Wii yet?"

    HMV Guy : "The thing with the wand? No not yet."

    Me : "Ok, Thanks."

    *Walked out before I commented on the use of the term 'wand'*

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

    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*

    Me : "Hi, are you taking preorders of the..."

    *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.

    ^Holy crap! Nice!! You should go back and ask him if he's a member of WiiChat and if so, what's his online name!
