    I really thought I was getting one today. LOL at me.

    So yea, I was excited as all hell because I heard that Toys R Us was getting over 100 Wii's, and that my Target was getting them in. I also live in a small town so I really thought that all the hardcore people who would want one would have already had one (since my parents won't let me camp out).

    I figured getting there at 530 would have been more then enough time. In fact, on my way to Toys R Us, I was thinking maybe I would be the only one there. Yeaa riggghhht.

    I get there and there are OVER 200 people there. We stay there figuring we'll get one some how, and by the time the stuck up, prick manager came out, he brings out some list that they never informed me of with over 300 names. He then starts calling names out, and the people who's names are on the list walks to the front of the line proudly, while the rest of us who were never told about a list were flipping out. I should have asked about the list, but last time I called Toys R Us, they said they aren't taking pre-orders of any kind.

    O yea.. and I was right about the other hardcore gamers having them already because ALL THAT WAS THERE WAS MOMMIES AND DADDIES FOR THEIR SPOILED BRAT KIDS!! IT HAS BEGUN!! I really see it impossible for myself to get a Wii before Christmas. When I get my car in a week and a half, I'm just going to take my brother and camp out from about 2 or 3 that first weekend (of the 18-19). Hopefully I'll get one.

    lol yea pretty sad on my part. I know people will say, stop complaing you should have preordered or that if I wanted one bad enough I could get one. But :
    1. I'm not complaining
    2. You don't understand how many people live where I live and how little and spread out shipments are.
    3. How stupid the people are that work in the stores aroudn here.

    I wish I decided I was going to get a Wii a little before I did. I decided I was going to get one at the end of October, when pre-orders sold out about 2 weeks before that..

    yeh i sucks how shops screw you over. I pre-ordered mine from GAME, (which is like gamestop in the US) because i knew they would be getting the most in and they would tell me whether i would get one at launch or not when they found out. My brother on the other hand, who i have to say wants this thing like crazy, pre-orderd it from another shop because they were doing a midnight launch. GAME sent me a letter two weeks after i had pre-ordered it telling me i would get one at launch which was great. But my brother went in every day for six weeks asking if he was guaranteed one at launch and they wouldnt tell him. A few days ago they finally told him he wouldn't get one at launch. This sucks because they delibarately waited untill a week before launch to tell him so that he would have no choice but to get it from there.

    anyway if you could be bothered reading all this crap i just typed, the moral of the story is........ always listen to me.

    At least you're getting a car, I'd rather have a car than a Wii. Although gas prices are insane.


    If I don't know you, and if I don't talk to you on the forums, don't send me a friend request. I won't add you and will not give you an explanation.
