    buying from tesco? (UK)

    Is anyone doing this?,

    I'm hoping to head up to a 24 hr tesco, (where they're getting 4 in) :S, but i'm hoping nobody nearby will think of going at midnight to get one.

    So, what do you think about this?, say there are 10 people wanting a wii but only 4 wiis in stock?, how do they choose these people, as I can't imagine there being queues at the till about an hour before...

    thanks.

    I'd go down there before if poss and ask the staff whether there will be an official queue and then on the day go down and wait in store at the games bit and ask the person working there where to wait, let them know you are waiting for a wii and not just loitering.

    they wont queue at the tills... but when you're looking for someone to fetch it for you, they'll be fetching it for someone else who asked over the phone or ordered from tesco.com. but good luck anyway. :smilewinkgrin:

    Gamestation - My pre order

    Ok so I was pre order number 149 at my local GS and I just found out I won't be getting it on launch but I will be getting it a few days after.

    I am not too annoyed as I still get it before most yanks xD and I am guaranteed one before crimbo.

    I also found out they are doing a midnight launch tomorrow :(

    Hahaha Game suck balls, I went in their today, they had nothing about the Wii, only a small farty page in their little booklet.

    Gamestation have taken over 200 orders, all of which are guaranteed before Christmas, at least Gamestation give a toss about games.

    Lets try and keep all the delivery confirmations and out of stock messages in here please. The majority of of the forum are gonna be posting up their delivery dates etc - lets try and keep the thread clutter down and post in here :)

    So far mine are all on track for Dec8th delivery - Component cables are dated 8-9 though :scared: (Amazon UK)
