    i didnt preorder till the 1st of nov so im really hoping they get alot of allocations i think you should be ok nintendoid. still i guess we are just gonna have to wait. There might be some stores near me doing midnight openings with some spare consoles, if they tell me i wont get my console on release i will cancel my order with game and camp out.

    ^^According to my mum (lol, how does she know?!..maybe it said it on the GAME card that we got... ) all the GAME preorders were handled together.. that is GAME knows their total allocation, and decides what to give each shop from the preorders and what to keep for online, and that each shop was in constant updates with HQ saying how many preorders they have on each date, not "each shop gets x amount". And since I preordered mine on the 2nd of October, it'd make sense that any orders before or around then will indeed be available for launch.

    And the orders started on the 15h of September, I think...not 100% sure though.

    I got the email from Game saying pre-orders had started with a time stamp of: 26 September 2006 18:11:09 BDT. My order confirmation is 18:29 so fingers crossed. Haven't heard anything though.

    Wow

    in within 18 mins, I best start looking for other options lol. I'm starting to think that a lot of the preorderers on here are going to be dissapointed. I'd be extremely shocked if you didn't get one transient, i thought i got in fairly quickly but apparently not. I guess its all down to the stock and how many people were quicker. My order confirmation was for 11:30 on the 27th so I may have been too late .

    Anyone else preorder from game.co.uk on here ?

    All the best

    I think the major problem (for you guys) is that Nintendo is feeding it's major markets (Japan and USA) first and leaving the UK market as an afterthought. Maybe you guys should start crossing your fingers now that the Wii doesn't sell well in the US (yeah right) so they can ship the extras to you.

    I don't have a pre-order confirmation or giftcard

    But I'm sure I'm going to get one, I was 3rd on the list!

    Well considering my Wiiorder was more than a week after the starts (it was actually Oct 5th) and all American preorders sold out within minutes, I'd say we're hardly an afterthought
