    I live in Huntsville, AL--population 164,570. There are dozens of Wal-Marts, two or more Targets, a few Gamestops, and one Best Buy.

    To all of those who camped and successfully got a Wii, could you please answer these quesitons?

    Where do you live?
    What's the population?
    How many stores are around?
    What time did you get there?
    What number in line were you?
    How many did they have in stock?

    A Target here said for sure that they would have some in on Sunday and they recommended that I should be there around 5am (they open at 8am). I just want to double check with everyone elses experiences based on where they live.

    Thanks.

    I live in Florida, and i'm going to Target tomorrow at 5 AM.. they open at 8AM.

    I'm sure they'll be others going at midnight or so, the employee said they're getting about 50 Wii's.

    Get there around 3am and you should be ok.

    If you show up at 5am you'll probably get skunked out of one. Unless you are located in the very north of Florida, camping out in Florida is quite easy. So people will more likely be able to get out there earlier than in a place like Minnesota. I'd think that 2am would be a good time to arrive.

    Everyone who is camping, let us know how you end up!

    If it bothers you so much, just ignore the thread... unless you lack the self-control to do it on your own. :eek:ut:

    If you don't mind, i'd love to virtually slap you with a fish. because apparently you dont know that retards around here get slapped with fishes.

    In case you dont understand, I'm calling you a retard, because you would be retarded to not slap the first guy who posted this stupid ass thread and tell someone to issue some self-control when you clearly issued none, seeing as how you opened youre stupid mouth (or in this case typed with your retarded fingers)

    retard

    In my town, for tomorrow - if you're not camping now, you're not getting one. Before 10:00, all the stores had campers. Some with >50. Every single store that you would imagine is packed with people.

    I'm sure it all depends on where you live. This isn't even a huge town.

    Does anyone want to tell me, that today(Sunday) was not the last shipment before Christmas.

    I hate workers.
    Last Night my dad went to CC and asked them how many they are going to have tomorrow, they said 15. He went there today, and was 10th in line. And they only had 6.
