There has been far too much hysteria over launches of late. Especially in the case of the wii as it can be manufactured pretty quickly. Im pretty sure that within one, maybe two weeks most people who wanted one at launch will have one. Its a bit sucky if you wanted one at launch but thats life deal with it, all of us have missed out on consoles at launch due to numbers, this isnt a new thing.
Paying 200 pounds / dollars / quattros more than retail is just bloody stupid and causes more preorders to go because of wankers seeing they can make a quick buck out of people on ebay.
rant over - ah thats better
