    Earlier this morning around 9:37am Amazon UK opened its doors for Wii preorders. They promptly closed 3 minutes later.

    After last years xbox 360 fiasco, it seems Amazon UK decided to wait until they had confirmation of their Wii allocations and would only then offer preorder signups.

    This was pretty much the last resort for any UK'ers looking for guaranteed launch day preorder and hopefully many of you got one!

    Keep an eye on the Amazon Wii FAQ page for further updates regarding second shipments and allocations:

    I managed to pre-order one with amazon yesterday morning.

    The only disappointing thing is that when I got the order confirmation, it states an estimated despatch date of 11th Dec with delivery date of 14-15 Dec. Hope this isn't the case as the FAQ on the site before the pre-order started said they would be despatched in time to be delivered on the 8th.

    Did you select the first class delivery, otherwise to goes onto a later delivery, however sometimes amazon ship earlier than estimated date (though its been rare in my case)

    I got that so I bailed out. It's going to be a gift so if I can't get it before Christmas then it's pointless. I didn't like the way Amazon changed the goal posts.

    It didn't matter what delivery you chose the delivery date didn't change. the fact that some got a delivery date for the 8th makes me think this was for some 'second' batch.
