Well mine says dispatching soon with delivery for the 8th. So I'm hoping it's all good.
I'm in the same boat, my zelda dispatched too. I managed to sort out the payment screw up by using amex and it says dispatching soon for my wii, I'm guessing last post is 5 or 6 so if they do it today it should say so by about 7. I chose first class though so my estimate is 8-9th.
Housemate did the same order and has the same status.
Play have shipped my console! YEAH!!!!
Roll on tomorrow! now all I have to do is find somewhere to buy the extra remote and Nunchuck, but I have to phone my local Game back Saturday morning t see if they have any in to sell apart from pre orders.
I am also trying to track down, an extra wii, as game cannot cofirm if I will get the extra wii remote before xmas, though have despatched the nunchuk, Have rung around a few places, it seems these wii remotes are going to hard to get hold of.
Braintree! I ordered Wii Play from Amazon, still says Not yet dispatched (although i changed the delivery from 1ft class to express yesterday) I ordered one from Argos & got a call to say it will be next week, one from HMV who havent got a date but have said def b4 xmas, Tesco are apparantly not selling until 11m in store or online. i rang all the colchester tescos - no luck though.
I found the number on a different site. AAAARRRRGGGGGHHHH! Your page has updated? Mine hasnt!
PLEASE PLEASE SEND IT TODAY. I BEG OF YOU!
And I just got the confirmation e-mail!
Now I can only wish that everyone else gets theirs, after all Amazon did say they would only allow pre-orders once they had confirmed stock from Nintendo. No doubt Amazon will blame Nintendo.
On another point I spoke to the chap in the local games shop here (independant store) who laughed when I mentioned the Wii, he stated catagorically that when he placed an order for 75 Nintendo said no problem. Then a week later said they could not fulfill his order. How many is he actually getting? none,zilch,nadda,bugger all. So they are obviously as bad ,if not worse than Sony or Microsoft.(I mean Nintendo have been at it much longer than either of the other two so you might think they had sussed this by now.).

I think we have had the misfortune of being the last launch. I mean if there is a shortage for even pre-ordered wii's then they are gonna give America all they need - Japan all they need - Australia - and we are last and get the dregs. If there isn't enough consoles we are the ones who are going to suffer...
