    Omg Toys R Us Suck!!!!!! Never Go There For Games!!

    I Live in UK, I Went to Toys R Us as they said they were selling them at 8:00am, I arrive there at around 6 and around 7:30 they start giving tickets out saying they have 44 to give out, I got my ticket about the 38th one.

    They sed that they wud have a bundle for 240 bundle in when i rang the day before. So i bought that much with me, then it turns out they only have 290 bundle with 3 games. So i get a 290 ticket they gave out, call my dad so he can come pick me up and give me extra money so i can get one, he gets there and they start saying they have sold all the wii's...i couldnt believe what they had done to me

    I'm not sure what to believe atall...all i know is if they hadnt lied to me in first place about nothaving 240 bundles in i could of bought straight away and not wait for my dad...

    I really thought i was promised a wii, and i couldnt believe i didnt get one...I feel cheated out of everything and i got nothing but "im sorry" from the person issueing them out.

    The trick is to go ahead and go in and pick it up, whether you've got the money or not.

    Then wander around the store for a bit until your money gets there.

    That way they can't sell it aft you've already got it.

    you had a ticket,isnt that like a guarntee?well i have a story alittle like yours.
    ok so i call walmart on the 18th(a night before the wii launch)they tell me they will pass out tickets first come FIRST serve right,i get up on a sunday at 5 o clock get to walmart lots of people in line set down have nice chat with the peoples around me,7:30 they start passing out tickets(this is the sucky part)they tell every one they will have 20 wiis (too low a number)guess what i dont get a ticket,they pass out two tickets to one guy,and not just one guy but others too,i was devastated,i was number 23 out of 20,if walmart knew anything from the ps3 they would have thought this shit out,worst of all i had to go to the bathroom everyone was closed except walmart,bathroom was being cleaned and i couldnt enter,worst of all they were selling the wiis next to the bathroom so i was forced to watch the one thing i wanted most of all,watching people walk out of the store,and buy games for it was the thinhg that made me really devastated that cold california sunday morning.but i learned something that day "never buy a gamesystem on launch day without pre ordering,and i went to a store called "walmart"unless they have half a brain of knowledge(sorry if i spelled it wrong,half asleep)so anyway nver goto toys r us cause well they specialeze (again ,half asleep)in toys,ill never buy a system from any store again unless it has the word game in its name.

    You cant have a go at someone for not knowing that they were talking about themselves when they didnt say that...

    But that was really unlucky mate but it surely couldnt of had something to do with your wii otherwise why the hell would you go back to playing it?
    Most people would stop if something like that happened.

    And you talk about sympathy but your first reply being the fact that you have beaten me or something, really if you showed sympathy like you wanted to be shown then you would of shown understanding for how a wii has hurt me but it has hurt you also and then explain what happened to you.

    This is leading off topic now i guess i just wanted people to be warned that what they did to me is really bad customer service, therefore I would personly recommend not going there, and wherever you go be prepared for a shock perhaps like myne

    Hmm...quite hard to read with lack of punctuation and spacing but i managed lol, i see where your coming from not quite as worce as myne because my friend was with me and he got one...because i was still waiting for my dad to get here while he bought his so i had to watch him buy it and then sit with it in the car...lol

    And i do believe the ticket is a guantee, and that is exactly what i thought at the time but there was nothing i could do if they have none left, i was apolagised to OMG WOW! lol and i took some details down and i plan to complain I got up at 5AM just to be told i cant have one...I've got a pre-order that i did but it keeps getting delayed lol i cant wait...soon i shall have a wii :P (play on words )

    I didn't say it was because of the Wii, I ain't epileptic.

    In my first reply I was getting at the fact that you are putting "may make you cry" and crap when all it is really is another "OMG I DIDNT GET MY WII TOYS R US SUCK!!!!111"

    On topic, you should of reserved at Game Station
