    That is the wal-mart near you. The one near me had well over 30. They were stacked inside the case and on the shelf opposite to the case.

    On Saturday, I went to a couple of BestBuys near me and both assured me that there will be "enough" and that thre's no reason to camp out the night before. As I left both stores, neither had people camping outside.

    I believed them and planned to just show up early on Sunday, say, around 7AM. (they open at 9AM, but starts handing out tickets at 8AM)

    Fortunately, I couldn't get much sleep, so I ended up waking up at 4AM. I knew I couldn't fall asleep again, so I headed out to BestBuy. Imagine my surprise when I pulled into the BestBuy parking lot at 4:30AM. There were already nearly 40 people standing around. It was 30 degrees outside.

    I started to get nervous and decided to continue to the other BestBuy, 5 miles away. Oh... no... even more people waiting there... I turned around and went back to the first BestBuy. Got out of the car ASAP and joined the line as #43.

    By 6AM, the line had 75 people. It grew to 120 just before 7:30AM, when the BestBuy employees arrived for work. The crowd cheered and clapped...

    They came out at 7:59AM and started handing out the little tickets. Mine had 043 printed on it. A sigh of relief(plus I literally need to relief myself... so I headed to the McDonald's next door... ) The line was cut off at number 76. There were 50 or 60 more people after #76.... all very disappointed. Yet more people continued to arrive.

    At 9AM, they started letting people go into the store, 10 at a time. I was a little worried about getting the games i wanted, since there are 42 people ahead of me. By the time I got into the store, they only had 3 more copied of Zelda left... I grabbed one and picked up my Wii. Paid for it and walked out the front door, feeling like the luckiest person in the world at that momemt... A bunch of people were taking group pictures holding their Wii boxes!

    My Best buy had 160 Wiis. People started camping out on Friday. Over 200 showed up by Saturday night and over 250 right before Best Buy opened. it was all gone in an hour.
