I got it yesterday! 4th day of release, no pre-order or anything .
Went to the mall, first went to EB Games, clearly it was sold out and they werent getting any till next week. So I was walking around and decided to go to The Source by Circuit City, and asked them which video game consoles they carried. The sales guy was like Playstation 2 and Nintendo *pause* Wii. I thought he was going to say Gamecube!
I was like really? Do you have any? He said he thinks so. He checked and they had 1! They had just received a shipment of three of them. 2 were pre-orders and 1 was for sale, I bought it right away .
Went back to EB Games store just to piss the guy off and said I bought it. There were people who came in at the same time as me asking about Wii. I was like I just got mine...they all turned to look at me...at The source I said. They all ran out of the store...Hilarious
Came home, updated it and all - works great and I suppose I was really lucky to be at the right place at the right time.
P.S - Toronto, Canada
