I got extremely lucky today.
The first place I went to was Target because they were supposed to get 60 Wii's. I got there at 5:40 (opens at 6) and there was a line of about 300 waiting to get in the store. I'm pretty doubtful at this point but I figure why not try to get in and see.. I ran to the electronics department and sure enough, they sold out in like 3 minutes.
So hope is pretty much lost at this point. Then I remember my local gamestop.. the guy there said they might get a few on Friday. But I run to another Target along the way and they're sold out as well. I finally get to this Gamestop ten to 7 (they open at 7) thinking there will be some type of line. I sure was wrong! There were TWO people in line, one only waiting for a PS3. By 7, there's a line of about ten people.
The lady finally let us in at 7 and we all rushed to the counter. And this lady was oblivious as to why we were there... the first dude in line asked if they had any PS3's in stock. And the lady said "I don't know if we have ANY new consoles in, I'll have to check the back." We were completely dumbfounded! It's like, WHY WOULDN'T YOU KNOW THAT? The guy behind me cracked a joke saying "What are we here for? The Gamecube?". lol She came out with two PS3's (the $500 version). Then I ask and the first guy in line asks if there are any Wii's. She said there are some.
The first guy in line ended up buying a PS3 AND a Wii.
The second guy bought a PS3 and I bought the second Wii.
So there is my lucky morning right there. I was not expecting to get a Wii at all.. Hope was pretty much lost at Target.
