    how long did you wait?

    just tell us how long u waited in line. i waited from 9 to 12 at wal mart but didn't get one (it was idiotic because wal mart based the numbering on a group of people who had passed out sticky notes with numbers on them) they weren't even employees nor were they told to do so, the woman said she would be out at 11pm to tell us who would get one and who needed to leave. she came out at 11:45.....did not give us the information we needed,so we waited until 12 then didn't get one. We weren't discouraged because we only waited 3 hours compared to the 12 some people waited. so we went to target to see how the line was,it was 1 am at that point, we asked the people in line and they said they had 24 consoles,and we were number 15 in line we thought,thats perfect so we had my mom go bak to the house for som sleeping bags and my psp and we camped out until an employee came out at 5 am to verify they had 24 consoles and to tell us that at 7 am he would be coming back out to pass out tickets to garantee you a wii, then he went back inside, so we waited another 2 hours and unlike wal-mart he came out at 7 on the dot and we got the 15th ticket. so then after that we just had to wait one more hour until they opened up to let us buy our wiis and until that point they passed out free popcorn and coffe,which was very generous by the way. when i finally got to the register I bought zelda twilight princess and of course a wii. i can't use it until christmas though because it's a christmas present, but yea thats how long i waited for mine

    My Wii was preordered and I picked it up at a midnight release at EB games.

    But my friend came from out of town to get a system also, so we camped a Circuit City (they were only receiving 15 units) from 930pm to 10am. Needless to say we were very cold, but it was well worth the wait.

    The pictures of us out there make me laugh

    I waited from 9am Saturday til 9am Sunday...was 16 in line when I arrived, 15 when I went into the store.

    Gotta say, time well spent as I'm sure you'd all agree.

    I waited from 8am to 12pm and it was an awesome experience. I would say it was like breakfast club for nerds. It rocked.
