    Sounds silly but you could try an Argos.
    It has the laminated books of dreams for a reason you know. And it's not to catch the tears of joy either.... well maybe.

    Argos

    Hehe, Gotta love Bill Bailey,

    Don't forget the pale mythical wardens of the treasure :D

    "So many beautiful things, I cannot possess them all :cryin:"


    :cornut:

    On a slightly more productive note, and to give this post more of a purpose....Argos are still taking pre-orders, I emailed them and asked if they had any left for launch day and they said they were still taking pre orders.

    I have no idea if that means they're still taking launch orders or not but they didn't say they'd sold out.
    Best of luck ion, i'll be sure to let you know if I find somewhere still taking launch orders. Amazon seems a good bet so make sure you get in early (again)


    All the Best

    Amazon stated for every one wii they recieved they have 100 email signups.

    If you want a Wii through amazon they will be freely available to buy on release day you just have to get up at like 4am or so and hit the refresh key over and over for 1-3 hours till they post it and you will get one.

    I read somewhere that Toy-R-Us UK didn't have many pre-orders. Maybe try ringing around them.
