    Hey, my Wal-Mart, i think most are, is open 24/7, now that means you can wait in line for the Wii in the place. I was reading something on the DS section that said they got their games/ds black lite a day before they came out. Is there any chance you would be able to get a Wii at wal-mart before it comes out like, maybe a day-hour before it does? You would think Wal-mart could care less... Not sure, anyone?

    It would be cool if they did that but I really dont care about that because where I live there is no Wal-mart. The good news is they are planning to put one in Costa Rica.

    Wouldn't surprise me, but I wouldn't buy from Wal-Mart because they probably don't have as good a return policy as say EBgames or Slackers...oh and Wal-Mart is evil too, so that doesn't help either.

    Wal-Mart is kinda of evil to there staff but dude who cares it's not like I'm gonna work there. I just go for the merchandise, that early Wii crap is such a fraud. I don't believe it but it would be cool if it was true.

    Actually, I camped out for the DS, they get it a day early, but they absolutley refuse to sell it a minute before 12 AM. They get it a day early for the people who are going to camp out.

    I wouldn't say they would sell it early as it affects their stock replenishment & they get fined if they break the street date. Or maybe that is just in Britain?!

    I got Zelda: Windwaker a full 24 hours before the release date, at my local gamestop. And I'm good friends with them, and I have already checked into if selling me one early is a possibility. And since they allow their workers to get them early, they are going to let me do it too! =)

    Not true.

    GameStop's(and every other game store's, for that matter) policy is that the customer comes first.

    Employees are not allowed to purchase newly released games until two weeks after their release, even if they do not intend to use their employee discount.

    So, I don't know what your GameStop is doing, but they could get in serious trouble if the corporate offices found out.

    Off Topic: I would just like to draw attention to this extremely perfect awesome sig Wiired made for me!
    On Topic: I'm sure most of the gamestop people just have friends/family buy the games for them. But still, the manager at my gamestop gives out games and sells stuff for really cheap prices to his employees, sometimes games before they come out.

    The Wii is 250 dollars in the US, no matter what. You don't pay any more money to pre-order it. But to pre-order it, you have to pay like 50 dollars or more, if I remember correctly. That doesn't add to the cost, it takes away from what you need to pay at launch.
