    [UK] If you still don't have a pre-order look here

    If you're in the UK and you've still not got a pre-order then I may be able to offer a glimmer of hope.
    I was planning on getting one from Amazon.co.uk today but extenuating circumstances prevented me from being there when the pre-orders went live >_<

    I was planning on just going into town on the launch day with some friends and getting one but I decided to have one last look around.
    I found Argos.co.uk ( Shop for WII Console with Wii Sports Game - available 8th Dec. at Argos.co.uk ) and noticed the message underneath

    This item will be delivered when it is released on 8th December.
    I thought to myself that this would probably be left over but I decided to check it out. I gave them a phone and spoke to a friendly customer services rep who happened to live just 5 minutes up the road (its a small world) who was able to confirm to me that they could guarantee that I would recieve a Wii upon launch day (give or take a day or two because they post them in advance to try get them to the customers on launch day). Needless to say I placed an order of '1xWii Console with Wii Sports Game'

    Now I'm happy as can be. I just thought I would post this to try help people who may still have been looking for pre-orders in the UK.
    Good luck to everyone in getting their Wii's

    I know, argos are damn great. I ordered my wii with them on the 14th November.

    On digitalspy there is an argos staff member and the preorders will be shut down as soon as the stock runs out

    Thinking back I actually think I've got the majority of my gaming devices from Argos...
    Gameboy Pocket - Argos
    Gameboy Color - Argos
    Gameboy Advance - Argos
    Playstation 2 - Argos
    PSP - Argos
    Wii - Argos

    Hmm... I never ever realised this until just then. Oddly enough I never buy anything else from them :S

    *Bonus Fact* I JUST discovered (about 2 minutes ago) That the PS logo on the disk drive of the PS2 can be rotated so that its always the correct way up even if the console is vertical or horizontal. O_O HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS! I've had the PS2 for 5 years(ish) and I NEVER noticed that

    Cabe. The PS2 blinds you with awesome blue light. Nothing else matters.
    .... oooh pretty light......

    Anyway, Argos is the king of all shops. It has the laminated book of dreams, know why it's laminated? To catch the tears of joy.
    It's the Narnia of house hold goods, the Tardis of toasters.
    And let's not forget the pale mythical wardens of the treasures that lie within!

    P.S. Congrats on the confirmed pre-order. Less than 3 weeks.

    Ooh. Another tip for UK people.

    Get a friend in Jersey. My mother lives there. Tax free. I've ordered the game I need (not want... need) here but all the others I've got coming from Jersey. Cheap as cheap can be

    advice: don't buy something more that 50 quid from argos. they have crap customer support and won't let you return anything
