In canada, preorders started today, monday, and my friend and i were getting a wii (me) and a ps3 (him) so we decided to go really early just because there isnt many ps3's available.
We got to the mall at 4:00 AM... there was already 5 other poeple there, one staying from 12:30 the night before...
they were ALL ps3...
i was the first wii preorder, we made a list, all was good... we believed that the mall was gunna get 8 ps3's and 15 wii's... so we made a list, 8 people signed up for ps3's, while only 2 for the wii (my bro and i)
The security guard was toying with us, driving slowely around the building, not opening the doors a second earlier then open time. When he finally was in the mall about to open the doors, he walked so slow from the other side of the mall to us, i seriously wanted to kill him. He opened the door, everyone bolted in, running different ways to get to the EB.. we get to the store... 3 asian kids were already there...
wtf we thought, that was the first door opened, how did they get here first? The security guard comes up and tells the kids to leave, apparently they said they were just contractors for a store, so he let them in early, but they lined up, so he kicked them out
Manager finally came. Two at a time he let in. I was the first wii, my friend was the 6th for the ps3. We waited 4.5 hours, but it was well worth it... we got our receipts, brought them home, pinned them on a bulletin board behind a big picture, along with my ID so i dont forget... and now we wait for the day!
What i got:
Wii - system
2 extra controllers and nunchuck attachments
Legend of zelda, twilight princess

In my car, on the way at 4:00 AM, my brother was pissed he had to drive us
When we first got there, 5 people were already there >_>
