    Post all of your stories about the launch of the wii, how your wait in line was, did you or did you not get one. Did you get one after launch? If so tell about your search and capture of a wii console. My story will come soon.

    well i got mine on december 3rd. got in line at Target at 6:20am and it opened at 8am, and was number 5 in line out of only 6 wii's at the store.

    the manager came outside at 7am to hand out the tickets. So i got my wii after waiting an 1hour and 40 minutes.

    the people in line were really nice and fun to talk to. also right before opening at 8 A LOT of people came and one guy offered people in line $100 for our ticket. so i finally got my wii last weekend and it is an awesome system!

    It all started for me on December 6th, my mom was attempting to get me a Nintendo wii for my birthday. She waited outside gamestop from 7or so in the morning till the opened at 9 or 10. She waited till 12 or 1 each day for the UPS truck to run. Well on one of the UPS truck runs they dropped off some controllers so my mom bought me a nunchuck and a wimote. This continued till Friday. That was the day that the wii’s came in. She was #6 in line and gamestop got 9 of them. She bought the wii and Zelda for me. So overall for my birthday I am getting The Nintendo Wii. Extra Nunchuck And Wimote. Legend Of Zelda, and she ordered the HDTV component cables for $30 off Nintendo so overall I got a lot. Although my birthday is December 17th I am waiting till December 20th to hook it up because I have nine weeks tests and that is the day I will get to set up my new 32” HDTV. I decided to wait till then because by then the cables should be in so I can have 480p gaming. I bought with some money I saved up Red Steel And Call OF Duty 3. I am getting money from my relatives for birthday so I will prolly buy 3 or 4 more games with that money. They are all coming over for Christmas so I hope they like the setup. I will prolly get enough money to buy 5 more games for the wii if not more. So I expect to have roughly 10 wii games by the end of 2006. SO I think this is a good year.

    I got mine on launch day in the US (November 19)

    I went to walmart at 6:00AM on the 18th and waited until 12:00AM on the
    19th! Right after I got my nintendo Wii I had a little energy to get back to my house! I wasnt allowed to eat anything or get any sleep in line because I was worried someone would take my spot! Cool thing is a guy in my line brought a laptop with South Park and Saw 3 and another one brought a gamecube with a TV! ( which made time go by much faster)

    I called a friend of mine at 7 in the morning to see how many people were in line at Best Buy. Got there at 8am. Got my Wii at 9am. Pretty easy.
