    How did you get/find Your Wii?

    First off this is different than "i got a wii thread".

    Ok now that we got that out of the way, anyone have any interesting stories on how you got your wii? Pay a ridiculous amount or get incredibly lucky?

    For me my mom was looking for phones or something at Best Buy so she walked through the games isle and amazingly there happened to lie two wii's, so she got me one. Some Insane amount of Luck is why i'm here fortunately or unfortunately if you don't like me for some reason lol!

    What's your story?

    My dad asked the BJ's near my house to call him if they got wii's in, but they said that was "against policy". The nexy day, a guy from electronics called and said he had 30 minutes to get there, or they would sell it. He got there within 30 minutes, so now I have my Wii!!

    I was actually on EBay like a week or two before Christmas. At first I found this awesome bundle but my mom wasn't home so I couldn't order it.

    So then I had to search for another hour and finally found the one which is currently my Wii.

    It came with SMG, LOZTWP, Mercury Revolution, Wii Sports, Classic Controller, and everything else for about $400.00

    I was one of the 1337 who waited in line on day 1. I ended up getting the last one at one of our local walmarts. The wait was actually pretty fun, we kept each other entertained, and I've seen some of the people I met that night around since then.
    ... but what do I know?...

    Actully this happened during school and one day after my birthday

    so after desperation of searching and searching i wasnt gonna give up, everyday i would call my local wal-mart, at lunch time, before i left for school and after school

    so a day after my B-day i called my local wal-mart and they had three in, this was during my luch break, my dad took me to the local walmart and i got one

    talk about luck, and it was a day after my B-day aswell

    but than 5 monthes later i got my PS3 which put my wii in the mists for a period of time untill yesterday (yea i packed my wii up because i didnt play it)

    i bought Galaxy, awesome game

    So... I at the time was working for Best Buy at the time of the launch of the Wii and PS3. With that background, I was working the night before the launch got off late and drove home, and when I got home I was like... "You know what, I want a Wii" so I drove back to my store and got in line at around 9 pm and at that point I was 57th in line. So I had walked across the street to the store and bought myself a Redline energy drink, and a Car and Driver and set up my chair and stayed awake all night until 10 am when the store opened and there were 110 Wiis so yea I got mine took it back to my apartment played for a while then just passed out.
