    It depends on where you live, Cap'n. Did you get a chance to see how big the lines were at your local stores on launch day? If they weren't big, you've got a chance of grabbing a Wii if you're arriving 30 minutes before opening. Some people might not even know Bestbuy is getting them, and even if they do, they'll probably get there after opening (esp. since it's not Black Friday). You MIGHT want to get there around 9AM, just in case, because there might be more people showing up in the last minutes before opening.

    Good luck, anyways! Hope you get it.

    That's what I did last year in attempt for the Xbox 360. I had missed it @ launch (didn't even try to buy it then), and I had been calling up local stores like crazy during the week trying to find out when their next shipments were going to be. Long story short, some Walmart employee told me they were getting some in on Saturday or Sunday--I don't remember which day--so we got there like two hours before the Walmart opened. Turned out they didn't have any 360's, so that was a bummer. But I'm glad, because if I had gotten a 360 then, which I never did, I wouldn't have been able to get the extraordinary Wii.

    Sorry for being late.

    I can confirm that all Best Buys do have some stock of the Wii today. It looked like most stores had around 20-60.

    =X, I'll keep checking and I'll let you guys know when there are more coming in.


    On a side note, Best Buy let employees purchase the Wii on launch day(if out of uniform and in the line like everyone else), but now says absolutely no Wii/PS3 purchases, which I think is rediculous.

    Best Buy has wiis

    In their Sunday ad, they said minimum 12 per store.

    My GF just got one (for my XMax present).... she was 12th in line...

    they had 42 of em.... and people were walking up at 9:30 (they open at 10am) and getting tickets for one.

    I bet they keep getting shipments and in a couple weeks, still before XMas, they'll be pretty easy to find.

    Yep, they came and went fast. There were over 50 people camped at one best buy for (12 units) the other one I got to in time had 18 and only 24 people at it.. I was number 21. So No luck there again 5th time. I really think companys cause a shortage on purpose. (Irving, Texas)

    Tickets were handed out at both stores about 30 minutes before, most were camped before 6 a.m.
