A few day's ago i went to go order my nintendo wii (its late I know but i had just persuaded my parents to let me buy it) the first shop we went into did'nt have any nintendo wii's left so then we went next doo to curries. 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.
