    Quite honestly, if you put the effort into it, you can get a Nintendo Wii WAY before what they are saying to you right now.
    Ditto put some umph in your UMPH! look for a larger retailer, they get larger shipments in

    My question is if they have so many consoles they can sell them in shop then how come the people who pre-order have to wait until january?
    The wii supply in stores won't meet the demand, and the same goes for online orders.

    Only the people who preordered late have to wait until january.

    Meaning the first wave of wii's has already been sold out, as far as warehouse preorders go.

There at curries i asked the man at the counter if i could pre-order the nintendo wii and he said that the if i did pre-order he didnt know when i would get it. He also told me that the nintendo wii wasnt as good as the PS3 and Xbox 360 so alot of people didnt want it. He said if i have come before november i would have got it somewhere near christmas but since i came now i might have to get in january. He then says that since not many people pre-ordered it (he said i was only the second person that had asked) there would be alot of consoles that they would sell in the shop.

    My question is if they have so many consoles they can sell them in shop then how come the people who pre-order have to wait until january?

    I then went next door to PC world. Over here the man says that the nintendo wii was selling well and that there pre-orders were sold straight away. He then asks "have you been next door to curries" I then explained the whole story above and he says that if i pre-ordered there i would be gauranteed one atleast and he said he doubts if they would have enough to sell in the shop. He then mentions the PS3 and my dad says to me why dont you buy that? I tell him i dont want the PS3 yet and ill buy it in about a year when i have enough money. He then says that he's only gonna let me buy one becuase of my SAT's this year. So i have a choice Wii or PS3. Well i chose wii and went back to curris and pre-ordered it. Now i just have to wait until january.
    ignore anyone who works in currys, dixons or PC world... they are all a bunch of nob ends who very rarely know what they are doing...

    If I offend anyone who works at these places... tough crap...

    they employ peopel to work in a technological environment and dont keep up with the latest tech & products... you may get one or two people that are really into it and know what they are talking about but very rarely you will find someone knowledgable...

    go to game, gamestation, virgin megastore, hmv anything like that...

    Why are you doing SATs in the UK? If you're going to apply to US universities you're better off importing one from the US until then.

    From the title i thought the first post would go: i had a curry last night and went to a shop to preorder, after waiting in a line they said 1 preorder place was left and i was filling out the details for a preorder when i needed a crap and ran out of the store to the toilet. I returned to find it had gone to someone else.

    Thanks to Pepper for the sig

    id say, on day of release, go look around ALL of your local game shops,
    Gamestation
    Game
    HMV
    Virgin
    Ninja Games
    Woolworths
    Argos
    Toys r Us

    If they dont have any, ask when abouts theyr expecting another delivery and what sort of demand theyr expecting. Im pritty sure that if you find one within a certain time limit youll be able to cancel your Preorder at curries.
    You should defonately be able to get one before jan... thats just crazy.

    i imagine it was one of thoes inbred chavy salesmen, bathed in shit aftershave, complete with some crappy cheap loafers from shoe zone who gave you this little pearl of wisdom. **** curries lol, they probably hadn't had many preorders as curries isn't usually a gamers first stop when it comes to buying consoles? good luck finding a wii mate, you could always camp out somewheres??
