    Well.....I dont think you know this but preordering and waiting in line for hours may be the only for SURE way youll get a Wii!
    Man, all you have to do is bring a book........ or a DS.... or something.... I mean if I can stand in line for 24 hours straight i am sure you could pull off something like that as well!

    if you want it on launch day then i guess you're in a pickle. Try searching internet sites perhaps. You may not get it until a day or two after launch (how good is your postal service?) but its better than nothing. Alternatively you could pay (probably over the odds) on ebay? I dont know, im in the UK, so some places (amazon for example) havnt even started preorders yet. Good Luck.

    cIf you want it on launch day then your'e stuck. You'd really have to camp out to get it on launch day if you didn't pre-order. What is your budget for the wii because you could buy it and probably het it in late Nov. If not you would have to go on ebay and see what overpriced wiis they're selling.

    I could have sworn that I posted in this thread yesterday but... uh I guess not. Anyway, your best bet is to check out this thread:

    http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-...ol-repost.html

    Then go to the store that has the most Wii's coming in your area about 3 hours before opening. I think your 2 hour limit is a bit low and will result in you leaving with your money and no Wii. Also, don't be afraid to call stores to see what their gameplan is for launch day. (Midnight release, early open, how many consoles, etc etc.)

    1. wait several months or pay your friends to do it for you
    2. maybe get it off ebay
    3. if you do get stuck bribe the store manager to get it for you

    Why? When he can just wait for an extra hour. Stores are getting more than we all had thought... if your in a rather populater area, you should have no problem coming across a Wii on launch day.

    Thank you all, I may increase the number of hours of my camp out if the weather is nice, a lot of responses make it seem it's IMPOSSIBLE to get one if I'm not camping out for several hours, but that's to be expected from a forum where we all want one yesterday I was at Circuit City and asked the guy in videogames how I can get a Wii, he was like "just come whenever on Sunday or Monday and pick it up, no need for a camp out, nobody wants that shi*" I'm sure he'll be wrong, but I also think that the ones that are saying that it's almost impossible with my plan are wrong as well, if I can just be in line an hour or two before opening of the store I think I'll have a good chance, maybe not 100% but still good.
