I managed to get one in the UK last Tuesday...er 12th Dec. Without a preorder! just walked into my local game store
Me "hi I was wondering if you had any wii's in"
Noob "yeah we do would you like anything else with that?"
me (a little shocked) " umm yeah could I get a copy of wii play, a classic controller and a nunchuck controller as well please"
noob "sure thing" (at this point he walks out back while I'm stood there amazed...actually looking like this >
I paid my money and got out of there
