    A few friends and i are planning on camping for the wii at a local walmart. I havent ever camped at a store before so i would like some ideas of what its like and what i shouls bring. were planning on getting there around 3 on friday the 17, and wait till the 19th. This is the list of things im planning on bringing.

    Cash
    food/drinks
    chairs
    blankets (it is november you know, and i live in NH)
    psp
    laptop
    beating stick! (used to beat away people that would want to steal my wii) JK!! lol

    anything else you guys think i should bring? Its gana be me and 2 other guys so far so how should we pick the order we get them? like i would hate to get up there, they both get one and i dont just because they jumped in front of me. should we draw straws or something? If you have camped at a store, post your experiences!

    Hey dark, your talking about manchester NH right? you should come down to the somersworth walmart and camp with us. Im at school in concord right now, but i think we will have the best chances at a store in a smaller town. Or maybee we will try to meet up with you in manchester! let me know.

    Why would you camp for 2 days outside of Walmart when it is open 24 hours and you could just go in at 11 the night before the 19th and wait to grab a Wii at 12? That's what I'm going to do...

    Here in Houston, I dont think it will be a problem getting one on release day as long as I pre-order early enough. Werent they suppose to start accepting pre-orders this week?

    I wonder, should I just pre-order in the US as soon as possible at Gamestop, or should I just go to walmart at like 5 PM on the 18th and just wait till 12?

    OR should I pre-order and then camp out to make sure I am the first to get the pre-order, but then again, I'm not sure if Gamespot will stay open for 24 hours for the Wii release.

    EDIT: Oh, and dbinder1987, dont bother going 2 days earlier, I was the first person in South Jersey to get a DS for camping out at Wal-mart, and I got there around 6 PM the day before it came out, and just waited the whole 6 hours, and way way in the front of the line, the first people.

    It will depend. I'll wake up maybe 5 hours early and go check out the store. If there's anyone, i'll get in line. If there's noone, i'll just check hourly, and half-hourly when the time gets close to opening. Just my local Best Buy 5 minutes down the street :D

    That is exactly what I'm pondering myself. Here in Columbus Nebraska the GameStop is right next to the Wal-Mart. I want to pre-order one at GameStop, but then I would have to wait until they open... If I just went to Wal-Mart at 11, I could get one at 12, and play all morning, but then I wouldn't be guarenteed one. I think what I'm going to do is pre order Red Steel and Wii Play at GameStop, and buy the Wii at Walmart and play Wii Sports all morning. I don't know.

    hmm

    so 6 hours before the ds launch you got a good spot in line. Anyone camp out for the 360? what time did you show up and how long was the line if you did? Thing is the ds is a handheld, and i think there will be more a a demand for the wii. Myabee ill just get there early saturday like 12 ish. thing is my walmart isnt 24 hour so i have to check if there doing a midnight launch.
