i waited at a target in Culver city LA. I waited at around 8:30 or 9:00 before midnight, and they opened the doors at around 8:00 in the morning. Thiers like only 1 walmart in all of LA it seems, and all the eb games places only had enuff for about 13 pre orders, and the rest they were going to get went to the big LA party eb release, so not many places to wait for a midnight launch. I hate Hollywood, so i waited at the target that had their shit together. They learned after the ps3 launch how to deal with gamers. I was 28 out of 60. When the doors opened, their was around 100 people in line, and too many drive by scouts to count.
LA was one of the harder places to get a wii. Pritty much if you dident have a pre order, you dident get one, unless you camped for 8 hours.
