I know my local Target handed out vouchers mad early... I got there right after they handed them out as the line was dispersing. It's a great thing though for the people that were sitting there for hours can finally get up and take a brake.
    wow! how early is everyone gonna go try? cause if they do hand out vouchers you'd have to get there wicked early!

    It depends on two things. A.) If your loca store even does that and B.) The time of handout vouchers varies from store to store. Call ahead to see. ALWAYS call and get more info on the operation your store of choice is going to go by. For example... I just called my local Target that was suposed to be getting 120 consoles... ERRR FALSE. The lady just told me they are getting around two dozen. WTF! Oh well, I will get there around 4am since they open at 8am... she did tell me they will be handing out vouchers. So I asked what time... she said about a half hour before opening. <--- Just call you local store and do the same. There is a lot of helpful, nice people if you look around.

    Theres 12 people waiting at my Walmart already and there is only 10 PS3's. Don't know what the hell the other 2 people are thinking. Guess they just want to camp out to watch other people get the Playstations.

    How do you know? The very nice lady I spoke with about the Wii said they are getting a couple dozen Ps3's as well? Of course I live in the most populated area on the east coast but even so I was suprised that one store was getting that many.

    12 hours will probably be more than enough for Wii, but I'm not taking any chances. I saw the line for a Preorder at TRU.

    My local Wal-Mart still wouldn't budge as far as how many they will have, but they said they will have a special line set up, no vouchers or anything.

    The lady sounded like she was sick of answering PS3/Wii questions.

    I am giving MAX 4 hours. My local Target opens at 8 am, i'll be there by 4am... I am not worried though... there are SOOO many places within a few square miles of me that it would be hard NOT finding a Wii.

    The nice thing about being there 12 hours early, if in fact no one else gets in line for 4 hours or so, it just means I'm free to go buy food and go to the bathroom (GG Supercenter) so I'm not starving and in pain.

    So it's not that bad, I look forward to the experience, and I'll be sharing it with a friend.
